Go back in time almost 350 years as you walk along the periphery of the ‘front’ bay and re-chart the birth of Mumbai. The walk begins in the European Renaissance style Ballard Estate business district with its perfect avenues and streets echoing reminiscent of Victorian London. See the famous Town Hall which houses the Asiatic Society Library of Mumbai and the Horniman Circle Garden and the spectacular surrounding buildings. Walk down to the Flora Fountain circle which in some very peculiar ways resembles London’s Piccadilly Circus. Walk past the 275 year old Indian Naval Dockyard with its beautiful mural representing the first establishments on the island. Finally end the walk at the world famous Gateway of India.

Today the 3/4/13 I took a walking tour with Viraat . Viraat created his traveltours called "Raconteur" and truly he is a fantastic raconteur. His knowledge of the history of Mumbai is extraordinary. Not only is he knowlegeable he is also a gifted raconteur. I encourage anybody visiting Mumbai to contact Viraat. Truly the best guide, by far, I have found in my travels. Thank you Vayable for making this happen A happy customer Andre D.
