We met a prearranged person , who took us around to see the gate of India, then on to the Peshawari restaurant near the airport. This restaurant was excellent. very polite people met and served us in traditional cloths. The food was excellent , not like the over . spiced food in the uk. . On the way to this restaurant we saw some of the extremes of India. The poor living next to the roads in tin shacks . The multi story The buildings in disrepair, with washing hanging everywhere. Then there was the more eloquent buildings around the airport, which depicts the affluence around this area. It was eye opening. Read Less

A lot of people complained that Mumbai was dirty. It might have been once upon a time, but the new prime minister, as well as causing chaos with the currency, has ordered people to start cleaning up the streets. As a result it was much better than we expected. We only experienced one really bad smell event, driving past the main slum area on the way back to the port. Other than that, I have had worse when we were on a small Greek island or some Spanish villages, to be fair. Our first day, we had pre-arranged a private tour. The guide and driver were waiting at the main gate and we had to take the shuttle there as arranged by NCL. Thank goodness those buses weren't used on any excursions, they were a little dated is probably the kindest thing you could say! However, we got to the gates without incident. The tour was adequate. We enjoyed the commentary but the young man could have shown a little more interest. We discovered that he had been at a family party the night before and hadn't got in until around 3am so it went a long way to explain his lack of enthusiasm. He arranged for us to get some currency from a Western Union place and so that assisted with the remaining time in India. Mumbai is a bustling city, best seen for yourself.It is hard to describe adequately the scenes of traffic chaos, except to say that if you have been to Vietnam, then Mumbai will seem quite sane to you! We visited all the main sites, including the Gateway to India, the huge cricket ground area, the Queens Necklace, Crawford Market (not worth it as it is obviously all owned by one person and all the stalls, bar a very few, sell the same goods - Im sure once upon a time it was much more exciting). We went to the Colaba district and had coffee in Mondegar and lunch in Leopolds. I bought some indian cotton trousers for very small amounts of cash and also bought a book recommended by the guide from a second hand book stall near the railway station. (Shantaram if you are wondering). I will return one day and spend more time just wandering around taking in the sights and sounds (and hopefully not the smells). Don't book with the cruise company, there is no need and they don't offer nearly as much. The place is very safe to wander yourself, just keep to the main pathways if you aren't sure. The taxi drivers don't speak much English so it might be worth keeping a map with the port gates marked on it just in case. Read Less

Our guide's accent was quite strong, which mixed with a very poor sound system (which she had reported to the tour company previously) made her comments unclear after about the sixth row of the bust.

Hated it. Filthy place, placed itemised on the itinerary not even visible (through those trees). We spent most of the 4 hours+ in traffic jams.

This tour company is run out of Dharavi and its profits go there. There guides are either current Dharavi residents. It was a privilege to be guided by them.

We had spent a week here several years ago and had visited most sites. We knew where we wanted to go and spent time in the Taj hotel and enjoyed a lunch with a few fellow passengers.
