Registered on September 03, 2023

Hello! I'm Sanjay, and I come from the lively city of Mumbai. I've had quite the journey—I was born in Kolkata, spent three years in Varanasi, another two in Bodh Gaya, three more in Delhi, and for the past 20 years, Mumbai has been my home sweet home. I also feel a special connection to South Goa; it's like my second home. I work as a freelance cinematographer. I am passionate about travelling, cooking, photography, writing, digital arts, meditation, and storytelling. Plus, I have an unhealthy addiction to watching documentaries and finding stories everywhere I travel. I really enjoy spending time with kids who don't have as much as others and teaching them basic stuff. I've been all over India as part of film crews, on solo tours, and with friends from countries like Germany, Japan, Canada, and Switzerland. For the past 16 years, I've been going on tours all around India, and it's been an amazing journey. I've learned so much from my own experiences and from listening to stories from other travelers. During my travels, I've met lots of people from different countries who've been exploring India for months, visiting all the famous cities and tourist spots. But many of them only knew about India from guidebooks like Lonely Planet. I was happy to meet them because it gave me a chance to share the real India—the stories, the culture, and the incredible things you won't find in guidebooks. This passion naturally led me to pursue a hobby as a tour guide. My love for being a tour guide extends beyond showcasing picturesque landscapes and iconic landmarks. It's about fostering cross-cultural understanding, breaking down barriers, and creating moments that transcend the ordinary. My Mumbai tour is dedicated to showcasing the rich cultural tapestry, history, architecture, bustling streets, and dynamic energy of Mumbai with an immersive and insightful experience. Languages I speak English ( Fluent) Hindi ( Fluent) Bangla ( Fluent) Marathi (70% Fluent) Language I am learning : Japanese ,

Sanjay took the time to evolve a group tour into a completely one-on-one experience across Mumbai. He's extremely well-educated and knowledgeable about how the city works and had a level of patience and humility I had never seen before in any other tour I've been on. Sanjay is not only a tour guide, but he's also now my friend. We shared so many stories of our lives and bonded over food and worldly perspectives. I didn't know what to expect of Mumbai, but because of my day with Sanjay, I will always remember Mumbai as the place I met Sanjay. Stay in touch, Sanjay!

Sorry to say I was in the right place according to Mc Do staff. One site said 12.00 hrs. When I did not see anyone at 12.00 I checked on the main site and it said 14.00 hrs and I confirmed my booking. I waited long hours and nothing happened. Most disappointing.

Sanjay was a fantastic guide and went over and beyond to give me such a fantastic tour. I was alone in Mumbai and he made sure I got home safely after both my tours with him actually escorting me back to my hotel which was miles from his home He was an absolute gentleman and such a lovely person. As well as taking me to the places listed on the tour he gave up extra time to show me some other beautiful places in Mumbai. I will always remember my fantastic visit to Mumbai and he has made it very special Thank you Sanjay
