+ Tour zu individueller Zeit gestartet - nicht die angekündigten Sehenwürdigkeiten besucht - wenig Informationen/ Erklärungen gegeben - Fahrt zum Tempel und Flower Market (wir sollten Blumen kaufen, Tempel war überfüllt mit Wartezeit von mind. 30 min) - Verabschiedung: der Guru war unzufrieden mit der Bezahlung, hat versucht und zu überreden mehr Geld zu geben und hat sich schließlich nur bei den beiden Männern unserer Gruppe verabschiedet Fazit: ich habe schon mehr als 15 free guided walking tours gemacht und war von dieser sehr enttäuscht und kann sagen, dass leider mit die schlechteste Tour war, an der ich teilgenommen habe.

I’ve taken many walking tours and this one was up there with the very best. Mumbai is not a place where walking tours are popular but Ali (and Sonu) are working to change that. I saw all the major sites, and got a ton of information. In addition to this, the tour was personalized based on what I wanted to see or learn more about. I would highly recommend Ali & Sonu for their tours. You won’t regret it!
