This is definitely the way to see Mumbai. Our very knowledgeable guide met us at the port with a driver and an air conditioned car. We were able to arrive very close to the main attractions with a car. Our guide took us to a local restaurant which had a history of old Mumbai. Our Guide was a retired teacher so therefore he was eager to share educational, historical and cultural information. We were so impressed with this Pacific Classic Tour Company that we scheduled private tours in Goa, Mangalore, and Cochin. We would definitely highly recommend this tour.

Wir kamen 2 Stunden später als geplant in Mumbai an, trotzdem wurden wir freundlich am vereinbarten Treffpunkt erwartet, Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten wurden abgearbeitet, jedoch habe ich im Nachhinein festgestellt, dass man die Freiluft-Wäscherei auch näher, nicht nur von oben, besichtigen kann. Schade, das hätte mich interessiert. Unsere Reiseleiterin sprach sehr gut deutsch. Sie hat mir versprochen, ein Foto von den Essensträgern zu schicken, das ist bis heute leider nicht geschehen. Insgesamt war mir die Tour zu kurz, sie war nach 5 Stunden bereits beendet. Das hätte man mit dem Taxi günstiger haben können.
