Known to many as 'one of the largest slums in Asia', we prefer to think of Dharavi as Mumbai’s beating heart. It houses about one million of Mumbai’s inhabitants and its industries have an annual turnover of approximately US$ 665 million. Through this walking tour, visitors experience a wide range of these business activities: recycling, pottery-making, embroidery, bakery, soap factory, leather tanning, poppadom-making and many more. You’ll also visit the residential areas of Dharavi. People from all over India have come to live in Dharavi, making it a microcosm of India. This diversity is apparent in the temples, mosques, churches and pagodas that stand side by side.Discover a side of Dharavi beyond its ignominious distinction of being known as the largest slum in Asia.
This tour takes approximately 2 hours to cover Dharavi and its neighboring points of interest. It starts from Cafe Coffee Day, near Mahim Station and concludes at the same place. There are two starting time slots of 10:00 am & 4:00 pm that you can choose from
