    What to Expect
    After meeting your guide in Colaba in the late afternoon, set off on foot through the streets and alleyways and stop first at Crawford Market.

    Founded in 1871, Crawford Market sports Gothic and Romanesque features, a defining architectural style of South Mumbai. Check out displays of colorful vegetables, meats, imported cheeses, homemade chocolates and household goods. (Please note that some endangered and exotic animals are sold at Crawford Market).

    Next up, get a taste of the vibrant Kalbadevi and Bhuleshwar bazaars. The sight and scents of a multitude of Indian spices make this area particularly stimulating. Stop to take it all in while sipping a complimentary cup of tea or soda before continuing on to your next destination: Mangaldas Market.

    Opened in 1893, Mangaldas Market is home to hundreds of clothing vendors and tailors, and it is known to celebrated fashion designers for its fabulous fabrics.

    Take a break from shopping to visit the quiet oasis of Mumbadevi Temple. Inside the temple, you might see devotees being blessed by Hindu priests and your guide explains the basics of Hinduism, the dominant religion of India.

    Near the temple, head into Mumbai’s flower alley, renowned for garlands of saffron-colored marigolds and red roses. Then see Bombay Panjrapole, an animal shelter that was founded in 1834. Situated on a quiet two-acre parcel within busy Bhuleshwar market, the shelter primarily cares for hundreds of cows, which are sacred to Hindus.

    After an eye-opening tour with your insightful guide, your tour ends at Madhav Baug in Bhuleshwar

    A really excellent tour hosted by knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humour. It was our first visit to Mumbai ( but not to India) and we really enjoyed being shown the local markets. Being with a guide means that you go to areas that you would not necessarily explore on

    Huge busy market that would have been too much to negotiate on my own. We saw a couple of temples, the food section, fabric, jewelry, flowers, cookware area, and even tried some food. The cow sanctuary was wonderful and we got to feed cows and buffalos. Highly recommend.
