35-49 year old female
Entrepreneur. Educator. Social Worker I am the founder of Mumbai Magic/Delhi Magic, a responsible tourism company which provides training and employment for students from slums in Mumbai and Delhi. I also run Abhyudaya, a non-profit that works with school-children from slums in Mumbai. In addition, I teach at an MBA college and am a public speaker. More about Mumbai Magic/Delhi Magic (actually, there are 25 Magics right now): We are currently the largest pan-Indian guided tours company in the inbound segment. We have been featured on the History Channel, Discovery (TLC), iTV UK, CNN, NDTV India, and in several international and Indian magazines and newspapers. The offbeat tours we have created – bazaar walks, cuisine tours, textile and craft tours – have delighted thousands of discerning customers. We employ more women than men, and give back in many ways to the society we live in. Please reach out via a Tripadvisor message if you want to talk to me about your travel to India.

Ask anyone from Mumbai, and you'll likely hear that Marine Drive is the city’s most popular romantic spot. Umpteen Bollywood confessions of love have been made here at sunset, and intrepid lovers can be spotted in all seasons — even during the monsoons. Drenched in rain and sprayed with sea foam, they sit with umbrellas on the embankment, lost to the rest of the world. The Drive is a great promenade for long soulful walks, with beautiful views of the Arabian Sea. It’s often crowded, yes, but what a nice crowd!
Malshej is a stunning mountain pass in the Western Ghats, just three hours from Mumbai. The drive to Malshej is very beautiful, especially in the monsoon, when there are dozens of waterfalls to admire on the way. You’ll probably find yourself wanting to break into a romantic song!
This beautiful lake, located two hours from Mumbai (about 30 minutes past Lonavala) is a great scenic spot for a relaxed day with someone special. It's absolutely stunning in the rainy season, and there’s even a seaplane service to Pawana, if you want to enjoy views of the hills from the air.
Stroll along the Bandstand promenade and end with a visit to Bandra Fort, where you can enjoy excellent views of the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. There are garden benches, as well as seaside rocks, where you can relax and watch the waves breaking on the shore. The amphitheater is also a very popular place for couples to pause.
For couples who love the theater and performing arts, the cafe at Prithvi is a great place to hang out. With its laid-back atmosphere — and lots of interesting discussions going on around you — it's perfect if you want to combine a live theater performance with a little romance.
Find a quiet spot at the ancient Kanheri caves, and let the atmospheric ruins work their magic on you.
Nagaon is known for its gentle beach slope, which is perfect for long walks. There are water sports for those who want to have a more active day, but also plenty of quieter areas for relaxing.
