TESTIMONIALS

I was part of Kalavantin Pinnacle trek on July 15.I would really like to share some of the things that I experienced. This was my 5th trek with Mumbai Travellers, I really liked the concept of singing National Anthem before the trek.Really appreciate. :) With regards to trek, well managed , coordination was too good...from meeting at the Panvel station to graciously completing the entire trek. Most important, I really appreciate both the leaders Nikita and Abhishek for their amazing leadership skills.Despite of maddening rains and crazy winds they managed it so well even at those difficult rock patches and made sure that we enjoyed every bit of it, which is very important especially when it is just a one day trek and you have deadline to reach back. I feel good leaders are very important for a trek, because that's how a traveller can be guided well and can have a good experience on the trek. A BIG THANK YOU to Nikita and Abhishek. And yes, food was amazing :)

I have been with the team for 2-3 treks. These guys are awesome. From arranging the trek to hospitality to sight seeing everything was well planned and smooth execution was done. The group leaders are enthusiastic and energetic which helps to keep up the spirit. No moment you feel bored. I loved traveling with MT

“Being a traveloholic at heart, any type of tour is a welcome for me. But since I have found this option of Ecotours with Mumbai Travellers, I have been very relaxed. A normal service person can go for a week long or even longer duration of tour once or twice a year & that definitely is a rejuvenating break. But that freshness lasts for very short. Those who are working continuously with a hectic schedule in Mumbai know that regular short breaks are the real answer for breaking a stereotype. So Ecotours provide exactly that. (Trekking is not everyone’s cup of tea) Offbeat but well researched itineraries, convenient tour dates which are weekends or long weekends, comfortable stay & arrangements, lots of options to choose from & lots of fun – this is how Ecotours can be described. I have been to tours like Jog falls which is a well-known attraction, but Yana caves and jungle trail to reach there was a pleasant surprise. Bhedaghat, Dhuandhar falls & Khajuraho are world famous sites, but Raneh falls was relatively unknown but equally beautiful . One gets to meet like-minded, positive strangers who turn into friends at the end of trips. One can get totally disconnected with their work & office. Karishma, who is a division head of Ecotours, has become an expert in planning, Managing & if required firefighting with a smiling face, to ensure that each trip becomes an experience for each of traveller . So I am already planning my next Ecotour;) “

If you stay in Mumbai, love to travel, see interesting places, make new friends, have unique experiences and if you are wondering what to do on weekends, think no more. MT is what you are looking for. Look at their trip calendar and you will never be bored again…and the best part is, it does not break the bank either!”

I am fond of travelling and have travelled solo and with various groups. Started with popular tourist attractions, Picked up new interests along the way and explored more to go to places never been before. For over a year most of my travels has been with Mumbai Travellers. And the best part is that even after so many trips, I still continue to be spolit for choice when a long weekend is around the corner because of the variety of interests they work with.This team is passionate about what they do and engage as well as invest heavily in the experience they offer to the travellers. Be it adventure, trekking, wildlife, ecotours or backpacking, you can be assured of a safe and enjoyable trip. Leaders that I have travelled with have been most helpful and knowledgeable about the places we have visited. Young bunch of people who think and do things differently and give a comfort level to every person be it a 10 yr old or 55 yr old - Have thoroughly enjoyed with Karishma, Saily, Saurabh, Vaibhav, Vishaka, Yashwant, Ishita, Kiran, Sameer, Kanika, Kaustubh, Vikram, Nikita, Swati and as much it pains me to say Rakesh too 😉 Looking back at the trips i have almost done every ecotour that Karishma, the division head and now a dear friend has put up. Ecotour to the uninducted is a 2-3 day trip to offbeat destinations giving you an opportunity to explore locations not frequented by outsiders, taking in the flavour of local cuisine and stay. Locations like Jog falls with Yana caves, Lonar crater, Gandikota with belum caves, Velas turtle festival, khajuraho with bedaghat to name a few are not locations that are easy to plan a solo trip to. So having a team planning an economical trip covering all major attractions within 2 to 3 day weekend is simply awesome. Not to mention the "if time permits" destination that gets thrown in by Karishma into the itinerary that i have always been very excited about.. Much can be said about the beautiful places themselves but crazy stories from fellow travellers and leaders during late night chats, well meaning leg pulling during the trip, memories from the delays during train journey followed by on-the-run improvisation are simply unforgettable. Along the way I have met some amazing people and fellow travellers who have made the travelling all the more enjoyable and memorable. Always thankful and lots of love to MT

My trip with Mumbai Travellers has been amazing. Everything was organized just perfectly and Vikram, Jogi, Abhishek and Karishma made sure to make this a wonderful experience for me. I think this is one of the best trips I’ve taken so far.. Kudos to the team, keep it up! See you guys soon!

Had a wonderful n out of the world time at Vaitarna. From the word Go... the trip leaders Abhishek Vikram Jogi n Karishma coordinated very well with all the participants with things to carry n the train timings n what all to expect at the campsite. The highlight of the event was our Mr Starry Man- Mr Vikram Virulkar n his astrosession breaking all the misconceptions v had since childhood about the world above us. Sighting moon craters...planets n constellations n the milkyway thru telescope was an awesome 1st time 1st hand experience. All our basic comforts n needs were well taken care by all 4 leaders. All in all a beautiful starry experience n special thnx to MT to come it come true :D

Hello! To cut the long story short, the midnight cycling organised by Mumbai Travellers Club - Go Travellism was superrrr. I rate you people 20 on 10. Met awesome people. Special mention to the leaders - Akshay and Neil, you guys are the best. Yes, I do have all the awesome pictures but why not experience the awesomeness by yourself :P Cheers

Very few people would have ever thought that they would be able to explore mumbai in the night that to on a cycle with a group of people they never met before. Playing khokho at 3.30 am on the beach was an experience that i will always remember. The group leaders were well trained and jovial and always used to lift up everyone's spirits when they were tired. A must for the people who want to do something different and see another side of the city that never sleeps.

Rishabh Shah

My first midnight cycling event with Mumbai Travellers on 17th December'16. The event was very well organised. Kudos to the team. Had the best time of my life cycling from Colaba to Bandra and also the mini activities (kho kho, stretching) were fun. Looking forward to many more trips with these guys. If you love adventure, you must definitely give a try.

Shardul Niphade

I met Mumbai travellers in a biking expedition towards Ladakh. I could see great discipline and intense planning. Which were is an essential quality of everyone who understands how to respect nature. Unlike most groups, the team was friendly and could easily extend warmth towards fellow travellers. I could witness that personally. 'I owe you guys for that :D' keep up the good work of exploring nature.

Recently concluded my first expedition with MT. This was the Chiplun one, in search of the Oriental Dwarf Kingfisher. It was a truly amazing experience. As 5 of us were traveling from Pune, as opposed to rest of the group from Mumbai, co-ordination and planning was a bit more important for us. It was done quite professionally by Saurabh and his team. Individually, I have been to this place last year, but it was more of a photography focused trip. The main difference this year, traveling with MT, was the extended sessions which were around understanding / studying the behavioral patterns of the bird and around conservation in general. The night jungle walk, with opportunities for Macro, was a perk. Thoroughly enjoyed the trek to Devrai and the exploration of newer perches of the ODKF was rewarding. The overall group was friendly and the timely instructions did help us respect nature and stay safe. Without a doubt, I would recommend MT to my friends and look forward to the next adventure with them.

You gave a moment of a lifetime. Kudos to u guys Kanika, Vishakha aka Vishu, Sameer & Suraj, you all are wonderful leaders. Keep travelling.

MT for me means: * Weekend Travel * Explore unknown beauties of Maharashtra * Cozy Home-stays and cordial hosts * Lip smacking local home food * Meeting interesting people on the way * And most of all safe and secure travel at reasonable costs. A very Big Thankyou to the entire team of MT for all the Awesome Travels and Memories. Hope we have many many more to come. Wish you success in all your endeavors.

Mumbai Travellers is a nice team. Completed my first cycling event on 31st July 2016 from Karjat to Kondanna caves. The day started with meeting at Karjat station and den a breakfast at Mayura Restaurant near Karjat Station. We got our Cycles good enough to ride and got the instructions from the leads regarding the do's and dont's. Stopped at couple of places in between to click pics to create memories. The best thing for such trips is the opportunity to meet new people. Our leads made sure that everyone of us know each other so asked us to brief about ourself and the craziest thing ever done. We reached the village to start for the trek and again got instructions to be kept in mind while trekking. Hows peeve straightforward the path looks a small wrong step could be dangerous. So we followed the instructions and finally reached the Kondanna Caves. Our lead Yashwant gave us some historical details and the architectural aspect of the Cave which was interesting and this particular thing is what is required from the team. i.e to know about the place we are trying hard to reach. Everyone spent an awesome time in the waterfall and altogether with the whole group. We came down had a nice lunch prepared in the village and came back cycling to Karjat station marking the end of the trip. Overall it was a nice team Mumbai Travellers who made our Sunday a Funday. I would recommend people to go with the events by the MumbaiTravellers team and would love to join it again as per the availability.

My Experience with Mumbai travellers club has always been a special one..My recent trip to Jhalana and Sariska has been the most beautiful memory. My dear friend Saurabh took care of everything to ensure I get the experience of the lifetime. With the bottom of my heart, I thank him and Mumbai travellers Team for giving me such marvelous wildlife tours. Looking forward to join you guys on another tour again...Thank you and all the very best in your future projects.

Teema Bajaj - Consultant at Grant Thornton LLP

I attended the Kokankada trekking and Camping on 28th-29th January and I had the experience of a lifetime. This was my second outing with you and I will always remember it for all the good reasons. Right from the beginning, the arrangement of everything was brilliant. Be it food or the expert guidance of my leaders, there was nothing more I would ask for. The leaders were extremely friendly and they helped me become confident that I could do it, when my self confidence was low. They guided us throughout the trip and I'm extremely thankful to MT for this memorable trip. I met a group of amazing people and there was so much to learn- from photography to how to descend the mountain to avoid falling, my friends and I will remember all these things for life. Special thank you and kudos to Kiran Bhaiya, Suraj Bhaiya and Nikita for being amazing instructors and we can't wait to come back for our next event with you!

I had a lovely trip the weather was perfect .. the resort tigers den had great food , good service and was very beautiful. The rooms were big beautiful and spacious . Our tour leader Saily was very well organized and took care if our every need also she was very loving and made sure we were very comfortable . We had 4very good safaris the park was lush and dense we were lucky enough to see 4tigers and many behavioral variations from a female and male tiger courting and cubs grooming each other ,and territory marking. We also saw many other animals like Indian gaur ,spotted deer , sambhar, ruddy mongoose and langur . The birding too was great the safari driver who is now our close friend Sonu would stop for photography once he would spot anything interesting and made an extra effort to show us the best views and get the best shots . Thank-you everyone for making this a dream trip. Will join again soon . Lots of love

Azhar Lakhani

Ladakh… heard it is challenging… curvy roads…huge mountains touching sky… crossing pagal naala… extreme weather conditions…. But all these factors were eased by Mumbai Travellers Though you have to kill these factors on your own but the support and management by these people were awesome… Most of us do not like the parental moderation when we are exploring new places so as we three friends… the decision was to make whether we have to go with MT or search for other group who can lead us to a riders dream place… decision was made and we are glad that we travelled with MT!!! Three Cheers for MT ..it was truly a memorable journey…. Looking forward to have many such memories with you guys Nilesh Haldankar, Jogi Prajapati, Suraj Shinde.

Mumbai Travellers is like a second family if you like to enjoy travel and have the explorer bug in you. Nilesh Haldankar, my contact point here is apt with his responses for every customised tour that I have done so far, right from Kolhapur to Rajasthan. He ensures seamless deleveries without a hitch. Off the track to spiritual trips anything and everything on earth, Mumbai Travellers have it . Kudos to the team

Thankyou so much Mumbai Travellers for this awesome experience :)

Priyanka Dighe

Before giving any feedback I would like to share 1 special moment about us. As a Traveller I have started my journey with Mumbai Travellers exactly 1 year before (1st tour with MT - Paragliding in Kamshet, 25th Dec. 2015). So I really wanted to celebrate my 1st Traveller’s anniversary with MT on the special occasion of Christmas and that is the reason why I have opted for this tour amongst all other tours/plans. Now coming back to feedback….Well, I won’t say it is a feedback but this is a stage where we can share our views/experiences about the wonderful journey, the time we spent together, beautiful memories & the list is too long to finish, right ;) Now it’s my time to share my experience :) Almost everyone came along with the group/partners except me. But believe me I never felt alone at any point of time. The group was awesome. I really had a good time there. The journey begins with lot of fun dhamaal masti and it was till the end with the same enthusiasm which is the best part. I really enjoyed the games we played, the fun we had together, Of course the wine tasting ;) but above all I have wonderful memories of this tour to cherish. What you could expect more when you travel with new people, visit new place, new experience and things are going absolutely fine for you which make you feel so happy. Wherever you go, you always learn the new things & this tour was exactly about that. I have learned/understood many (new) things about wines; it’s processing, about its conception/misconception in the minds of people and all. I would definitely suggest my friends/relatives to visit such places to look for these things from different perspectives. Karishma & Swati did a fantastic job as tour leaders. They always had something new in order to keep everyone interested and involved in all the activities throughout the tour. Arrangements for the food, stay, travelling were good. Jogi Sir…Do I need to say something different about this guy? Well, everyone knows very well about him. He is just awesome. We really had a good company. Thank you so much Karishma, Swati, Sayali (she is cool) & Jogi sir for making this tour so special for me (and I am sure everyone has the same thing to say). You guys are doing a wonderful job :) Keep it up. Hmm…I think I should stop here. I know I have many more to say but I have already written too many things and I don’t want mein itna likhu ki people will treat it as essay and not the sharing of experience..hehe Definitely I’ll meet you guys soon…wanna enjoy a new travelling experience with MT. Looking forward to it. Till the time bye bye….

Swapnil Deshpande

I have completed one midnight cycling ride and two treks (Vikatgad & Kothaligad) with MT. My life has changed completely after being associated with MT(Mumbai Travellers). I got transformed from tourist to traveller. The leaders are very friendly, I feel safe under their guidance. There is wide range of offering from MT (Backpacking, Wildlife, Nature Trail, Trekking, Cycling, Biking, Photography events, and many more categories to be added) to suit everyones tastes and moods. Since last few weeks, MT has become part and parcel of my life. My last trek (Musical Night Trek to Kothaligad) is life changing experience to me. I would strongly recommend you to just try MT once, you will be associated with it forever.

Venugopal Adep

26th September when I realised that life is not about hanging out with friends within limits but it's much more than that... I found that making new friends gives a different pleasure, it is better to be crazy than lame. N Mumbai Travellers gave me that start of realisation with a amazing trip of river rafting on 26th of September.. With a group of 15 people and my two sisters along with our team leader vishakha was a mind blowing experience. Fight with splashes, screaming on top of our voice, clicking selfies.. and relaxing on waters.. not a minute of tiredness, being totally foody.... everything was totally different from usually routine.... I am really grateful to Mumbai travellers.. and a big thank you to our team leader vishakha.. I am looking forward to many such trips... and would love to be a part of this wonderful family.

Ashwini Aiyer

I call the MUMBAI TRAVELLERS club my extended family They have been instrumental in making me a confident solo female traveler besides encouraging me to try out treks too I have learnt a lot from them too;from Saurabh social responsibility n philanthropy;from Jogi how to enjoy n to ensure that others enjoy too;from Nilesh to be alawys helpful. Team Mumbai Travellers with its team of dedicated leaders have embraced me within their fold n I super duper enjoy their wild n whacky trips... some of the things I have never done in my life like rapelling,white water rafting, going to watch fireflies in the dark forest n many more But one thing is GUARANTEED each n every trip will be ROCKING N FULL OF FUN N LAUGHTER besides teaching you something new about the place Also I have met so many amazing individuals who became friends on these trips that my list of FB friends has grown exponentially . I can truthfully say that team MT has truly inspired me to travel more, to travel further than even my dreams n that even the sky is not the limit , we can venture beyond ANYONE UP FOR STAR TREK (register me first if MT is going )

Hi Mumbai Travellers team, On Saturday 6th of July 2013, I had planned a corporate outing for my colleagues with the help of Mumbai Travellers @ Kolad for River Rafting. And I cannot completely express how fantastic it was. Everyone in the group enjoyed it to the core. The major aim for such outings for us is to get people in the group close to each other to maintain a good and enjoyable working environment. And this trip did exactly that to us. And it couldn't have been possible without your perfect planning and co-operation. Everyone loved the place, facilities provided and especially the lunch that we got at Pooja's Farm. And the best part was that we got it at an affordable price. Thanks to Jogi for giving us a good negotiation. And on behalf of everyone in the group, I would like to thank you all for organizing such memorable trip.. Our special thanks to Suraj, our leader on the trip, he was very helpful and kept the things lively. We love your passion for adventure and we look forward for some more adventures together. Keep it going. Cheers
