Experience hosted by Ashwini

What you'll do

We'll roam and ramble along my favorite by lanes of Bandra. We'll start at Mount Mary Hill, head to the sea face at Bandstand and then explore a 400 year old nearby fishing village. I’ll also give you a sneak peek of my favorite gardens overlooking the Arabian Sea. On our way, we'll pass Mount Mary Bascillica and Castella de Aguada or more commonly known as the Bandra Fort. Did I mention there are also some Bollywood celebrity homes in the vicinity where you may want to stop by for a small photo op or just watch fans crowing up to get a glimpse of their favorite star.
Other things to note
I want to share the joy of being close to nature. Feel free to ask for customizations or send me any queries I can answer before you get here. The only prep you need is to be prepared to unwind.

Ashwini and her husband Sameer were great! Truly well-versed on all things Bandra, and did an amazing job of tying the history of Bandra to the present. Given they live there, they also shared a genuine perspective on life in the neighborhood (and Bombay in general) to an extent I rarely find on other tours. Most importantly, they were extremely kind and made sure you were engaged - it was more of a conversation and meeting a local rather than a walking history lecture. Highly recommend and hope to be back!

It was a lovely way to spend an hour and a half walking around and getting a feel for the neighborhood. Ashwini was warm and friendly. This is not a history walk but she did go over some basic historical information about the neighborhood. It was a fun time!

Ashwini was a fantastic guide and host for our evening in Bandra! She showed us some really unique villages and corners we would have not found ourselves, told us about the history of the neighborhood and was fun! Post tour she also helped us out with some very good and very clutch restaurant recommendations!

I went for a wonderful walk in Bandra with Ashwini. Undeterred by the rain, she took me on a fun, interesting and engaging (and photo-worthy!) loop around the neighborhood. I had been to Bandra before and had walked around on my own, but didn't have the context, the familiarity, or the personal acquaintance with the neighborhood, its people, and its stories that Ashwini provided. Ashwini is not only extremely knowledgeable about Bandra, its streets and its buildings, but is also a dedicated resident of the area who is committed to sharing and preserving its unique character. Going on a walk with her is a must-do for anyone who wants to get to know Bandra (and Mumbai in general), it was such a great experience and I'm so happy I decided to book it!

Ashwini was awesome, taking us around Bandra as a local. We had an amazing time, and learned a lot about the history of this beautiful area.

Our Ramble through Bandra with Ashwini and Sam was lively and interesting. Both guides really love their neighborhood and are eager to answer any questions you might have about Bandra. We enjoyed learning about the area and talking with our guides about Mumbai and India. Highly recommend this experience- it more social than historical.
