Mumbai Holidays: an Overview

You say Bombay, he say Mumbai. Call it what you will, this is - without question - the most vibrant city on Earth. 14 million people from slumdogs to billionaires living dirt streaked cheek by perfectly manicured jowl will always generate an impressive energy - after all, there's life to be lived, and gods to be worshipped, be they called Tendulakar, Mumba Devi (the city's patron god and latter day namesake) or Mammon.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Modern Mumbai is a place to experience some of the best food in India, from the restaurants of India's celebrity chefs (try Trishna) to Gujarati street food, and there's a Bollywood A-lister fuelled nightlife as well.

Tailor Made Holidays to Mumbai: The Detail

To see how the city really functions we can arrange for you to join the vast army of white cap-wearing dabbawallahs, who deliver some 200,000 lunches to hungry office workers every day, as they ride the trains in to town from the suburbs. The daily logistics are staggering, and the dabbawallahs claim a loss rate of one meal in 16 million. We also recommend shopping for goodies in the Chor Bazaar (Thieves' Bazaar) and a day's racing at the Mahalaxmi race track as racing comes a close second to cricket in Bombayite' sporting affections.


Thanks SO MUCH for the help with London. We had an absolutely amazing time. The Harry Potter experience was truly remarkable.
