Itinerary

You’ve probably heard of Ramadan, the time of year when Muslims observe a month of prayer and fasting. In India, this month is called Ramzan, and includes the practice of fasting from sunrise to sunset every day of the month. Then, every night, Indian Muslims break their fast with Iftar, a celebratory meal eaten with family, friends, and neighbours.
During Ramzan, the streets of Mumbai are lit and full of activity throughout the night, with people wandering through markets and the smell of food filling the air. So why not join them?!
We’ll kick off our Mumbai tour by foot or by taxi (depending on availability), and head to a nearby mosque called Minara Masjid, from where we’ll submit ourselves to the bright lights of the bazaar. Here, you’ll get the chance to eat delicious local food, like nihari with malpua, succulent kebabs, and phirni, a pudding you’ll never forget!
With your local guide by your side, you’ll become adept at navigating the bazaar and enjoying this iconic global celebration like a local. At some point on our tour, you’ll likely spot people offering their last prayers for the day, and you’ll no doubt get to mingle with locals, experiencing their warm hospitality during their happiest of festivals. Ramzan in Mumbai is an experience you’ll never forget, and absolutely shouldn’t miss out on!
