If visitors are expecting extreme poverty and despair based on movie depictions, they will be disappointed. In fact this tour actively breaks stereotypical depictions of slums. The tour will take you through the proud and industrious area of Dharavi. You will be able to see where people work, where people live and where people relax. We will show you the vast industrial areas with many important industries like the recycling, garment, bakeries, etc. We will show you the residential areas where whole families live in a small room, local schools and even the pottery industries. Some of the areas will be familiar if you have seen the film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ as much of the film was shot in Dharavi.
