I completed the Heritage Walk that Raconteur offered. It was a great way to cover a lot of south Mumbai in about 3 hours. Guide was knowledgeable and the tour brought you to some of the main sights of the city. Highly recommended.

The tours were amazing! On Tuesday our tour guide Karishma brought us all over town and we saw multiple temples, mosques, and religious establishments including the Haji Ali, Shree SiddhiVinayak Ganapati temple, and the oldest Jain temple in Mumbai located near Malabar Hill. We did countless other activities and landmarks, but our favorite part was going to the Dhobi Ghat... More

I did the walking tour around Fort. The two guides were great - really knowledgeable, enthusiastic about Mumbai, and good company. It was a great way to learn about Mumbai and understand how it's changed during its history. Would definitely recommend!

This week we took the walking tour of Mumbai and found the experience to completely fulfill our expectations. I love the idea of having students as your guides, whom we found highly informed and passionate about their city. Our guide, Rucha, was all of these things. She provided the relevant political context to understand the architectural and cultural attractions she... More

I took three wonderful tours with Raconteur – Heritage (Omkar), Apollo Gate (Nihar), and Bandra (Sunita). Omkar is a Mumbai University student who is studying history, and hopes to become a professor, which is fitting, because his knowledge of Mumbai history and Mumbai today seemed to be comprehensive. Nihar shared a number of stories related to the Apollo Gate area,... More

As I was sat in McDonald's garden waiting for my guide for the Church Gate and Heritage Mile Walk I suddenly realised that the sugar cane store holder lived under a tarpaulin attached to the back of the stall. Welcome to raw Mumbai. There were three of us on the tour and our guide Viraat. Who was also the CEO.... More

OK, I can live with people not wanting to provide their services, but find it a bit rude that having promised to call back to arrange a time/date for a walk Akshay at Raconteur never got back (or indeed took my call). They might be good but that is no excuse for sheer lack of professionalism!
