    Many unknown and unseen pictures of Mumbai was revealed during our tour. In today's world, we are so much attracted towards all the glamour and hardly bother about those faces who brings us these glamour. But while we were walking down the narrow and bustling lanes during this tour, we got to see the real picture. Everyone must try this tour and witness the very original pictures of Mumbai that are hardly brought in the focus.

    You will get to see the real image of life in Dharavi and several other corners of Mumbai. The way our movies has been portraying these areas are not exactly the same and has a lot more. Kumbha Wada and Dhobi Ghat were very busy places but they had something to learn. I mean, everyone in these areas are very much aware of their roles and duties and also carried them out in a perfect way. Hats off to the people of these areas.
