Travellers can take a new tour behind the scenes of Mumbai’s slums.
The India Travel Centre has teamed up with Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts to offer holidaymakers a new way to experience the city.
Rajeev Olickel, director of operations at the India Travel Centre, explained: “We have designed a tour that showcases Mumbai in its true essence, giving travellers a complete mix of real Mumbai experiences and an insight into the real lives of the people.”
Among the stops on the tour are a visit to a slum where tourists can see how businesses in the area are run, as well as a trip to Mumbai’s railway and various markets.
Travellers may also want to see some of the city’s best-known sights, including the former residence of Mahatma Gandi and the Hanging Gardens, which can be found at the top of the Malabar Hills.
