Tour was advertised as free but at the end they tried to collect 750 rupees from me. That spoiled everything.

Varsha war ein toller Tourguide mit vielen Insiderinformationen, da sie selbst in dem Viertel wohnt. Eine erlebnisreiche Tour und Einblicke in das Leben der Menschen, die dort leben und arbeiten, die man sonst nicht bekommen würde.

Varsha was such a lovely guide! Even though we were late and it was raining heavily, we all had a good time together! Dharavi is definitely a place everyone should visit- it is important to not be ignorant about who produces the things we own and where. We left the tour being thankful for what we got to see and thoughtful how privileged we are to only dive into the tour's world for 2 hours and then going back into one's life. Thank you Varsha!
