How much does this tour cost?

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).

Scam! Scam! Scam! After arriving they asked me to pay 1000 rupees in order to join the group. It’s a local tour company hiring some random people to do the tour. Tour was boring. Not informative at all. The guide was saying we got 20 seconds to take pictures and move on. We spent too much time at some leather shop where the owner tried to sell us overpriced fake leather purses and jackets. Very disappointed.

This is a SCAM. It was advertised as a free walking tour but it is NOT. Upon arrival we were told to pay 2000 rupees or we could not join. We did this as we already travelled one hour to arrive. Our tour guide was NOT as advertised and was an employee of the person listed here. Obviously a long running SCAM. DO NOT BOOK UNLESS YOU WANT TO PAY A LOT OF MONEY.

POOJA WAS EXCEPTIONAL !!! We were very disappointed to be asked to pay 2000rupees for the tour, this tour is advertised free and at the end of the tour it's up to the participants what they give to the guru. We've done this tour in many countries and no where did they ask and tell you what to pay. This is false advertising, please get your act together . Thanks

Eine tolle Tour in der man einen guten Einblick in das Leben im Slum und den ekonomischen Abläufe dort bekommt. Ravi hat die Tour sehr unterhaltsam gestaltet und auch von den Bewohnern von Dharavi wurden wir herzlich aufgenommen.
