Dhobi Ghat & Dabbawalas Tour of Mumbai

In this tour you will visit the Dhobhi Ghat well known open air Laundromat in Mumbai also, called the world's largest outdoor laundry and Dabbawala who deliver freshly made food from customer’s home in a lunch box (Dabba) and deliver it to offices.

Meeting and assistance upon arrival at Mumbai port (your guide will be waiting for you at the EXIT GATE of port, having a placard and your name written on it). Then you will drive to Mahalaxmi Dhobhi Ghat the world’s largest outdoor laundry, every day for over 120 years the dirt has been washed from thousands of kilos of clothes by the dhobis (washermen and women) of Mumbai’s Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat. 

Later after Dhobhi Ghat, guide will take you to Church gate to meet with the dabbawallas. A word of caution: these guys don't have the time for interviews and photographs. You will just about manage to scramble into their compartment on the train, where the floor is covered by Tiffin’s and lunch packs of every possible shape and size. It's fascinating to see those dabbas carted from one end of the city to the other, and to everywhere in between. The footpath outside Church gate station serves as a reconnaissance point, where the men in Gandhi topis wade among rows of hundreds of dabbas, and take them to offices where hungry executives wait in earnest for their home cooked meal to arrive each day. Later we drive back to the Mumbai Port.
