The Streets of Mumbai tour starts and ends in Mumbai. The Streets of Mumbai is a cultural, religious and historic sites tour that takes hours taking you through Mumbai, India and other destinations in India.

Mumbai might be a commercial powerhouse that spellbinds those travelers with its irresistible energy and charm, but it doesn't take you away from things that make India so unique. It is an amazing way to learn more about India's culture, history, religion, community and architecture, and also see something the world's always been talking about - the way the city does its laundry!

A place this big with so much going on can be intimidating, even for the most experienced traveller, so this Mumbai city tour was designed to help smooth out some of the must know practicalities of navigating your way around. At the same time, we'll give you the local low down on the stories of the city and what it's like to live in Mumbai.

Your Mumbai tour gets off to an impressive start outside the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, a bustling railway station that is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a brilliant specimen of Victorian Gothic architecture.  

A short local taxi ride through vintage Mumbai reveals beautiful Indo-Victorian buildings and monuments that serve as a throwback to an era of dapper English Sahibs and elegant Memsahibs. The impressive Gateway of India, a monument built for a King, stands in its full glory against the blue sea dotted with colourful fishing boats, yachts, and the occasional cargo ship.  

From the Gateway, our Mumbai city tour continues with a breezy ride through Mumbai's iconic Marine Drive that takes us to the base of Hindu religious fervor. Built atop a hillock is the 200-year-old Shiva temple, Babulnath. Devout Hindus can be seen carrying milk and water to pour over the Linga, the creative symbol that denotes Lord Shiva. 

Underlining that fact that India is a potpourri of religions, a short ride from Babulnath takes us to the heart of Muslim piety, Haji Ali. One of its kind, this 14th-century mosque was built 500 yards into the Arabian Sea.

Splashes of colour and smells that are distinct to Mumbai greet you when you reach the unique Dhobi Ghat. The sight, sound, and smell of multitude of clothes being washed together has never been so appealing as at this launderer's nook.

We end our tour of Mumbai highlights after getting a step by step account of how tons and tons of clothes are washed starched ironed and returned using the tradition of pristine Indian laundry.
