Five experiences to satiate all your senses!
The Five Senses, as the name suggests takes the guests on a journey where they engage in five different experiences that offer a true taste (smell, touch, sound and vision) of Mumbai. This tour was created to offer what we thought was the best of Mumbai city that a tourist who is in a hurry can do in one day!
Mumbai city tours have long been just about monuments. And while history is umbilical to tell the story of the city, it’s not the only way to define it. Mumbai is as much about the historic sights, as it is about the people and their distinct culture that it imbibes. The Five Senses Walk pays homage to Mumbai city in its entirety by creating fun and engaging day long activities that don’t dwell on just history lesson but go beyond.
We are sure it will tingle all your senses, one experience at a time!
Sight - We take you on a historic walk through the colonial precinct of Mumbai covering major landmarks such as Gateway of India, Victoria Terminus, Taj Mahal Hotel, Yacht club, etc. While hearing stories about Mumbai's history, you will stumble upon the dabbawalas scampering though to maintain those six sigma ratings.
Sound - Next up, we have some fun and listen to some Bollywood music! But hey, who would not want to tap their feet when its Bollywood Music, right? Especially when we set you up in a contemporary dance studio space, with your own personal Bollywood dance choreographer. Completely in-sync with the Ethos of Mumbai - This dance class is going to make you have some fun while you lose some calories, before you pack them back on the next stop
Taste - No destination is complete without a taste of its food. It'd be a pity if you came into a coastal city like Mumbai and didn't sample the coastal Konkan fare. Trust us, this stop will reinstate your belief that you chose the right tour. A great coastal Thali peppered with Indian spices and coconut based curries. What’s not to love!
Smell - Take a walk down the famous Mumbai Spice Market, as aroma almost restarts your stomach engines, if you haven't over-eaten already. Here, not only can your purchase some spices, but you can also get them dry roasted and grounded into a masala mix of your choice. It’s not uncommon to see ladies patiently waiting, with bagful of spices and a recipe that has been handed down to them since generations.
Touch- A perfect end to this colourful collage of experiences is to be able to touch people's lives. What better way to do this, than to interact with the less fortunate and engage in activities that help and uplift them. Volunteer in an activity or two, and be the reason behind spreading a few smiles!
