After a brief introduction we start our Tour in a cozy aircon car by visiting the Rock cut Buddhist Caves known as Kanheri Caves which dates back to 1st Century and are believed to be one of the oldest cave formations in the country. There are 109 caves with ancient Indian style architecture with a Colossal Buddha statue sculpted out of the Rock. The Caves became a distinctive Buddhist institution for congregational worship, study and meditation. Then stop at one of the 11 Tribal settlements in the heart of Mumbai and understand their culture, life and their Art. The art is known as Warli painting and dates back to the 10th Century. Last we travel by suburban train and visit the largest slum in Asia known as Dharavi. Here we can see how pottery is made. Also a surprise gift is waiting for you to grab. One can personalize the tour as per your time schedule or if you have any specific requirements. This tour can also be personalized.
Namaste! Born as Mumbaikar with a passion for travel, I have been traveling my country for the past 35 years. I quit my job as a Banker solely to pursue my zest for travel, do painting and play music. With a passion for my city and my country and deep desire to meet and interact with fellow citizens, I can show you places that a normal traveler cannot see such as the Tribal settlements and their tribal art known as Warli paintings. I have a craving for culture, tradition, history and with my knowledge of 8 languages of India, I can not just be your perfect Host but a great friend too. I offer free pick-up and drop from any place situated within Mumbai. By joining the Tour a small amount of your contribution goes to Orphan Street Children, Old Age Home, Food for Hungry, Education of Children, Health related problems and such other needs.
