Guided Tours

We periodically take curated walking tours of approx 60-75 minutes duration of "Art Deco at the Oval" located in south Mumbai. They are led by an architect. The tours are small, up to 5 persons with a minimum two. Persons interested in architecture, design and some history have enjoyed them. Customised tours can be arranged on request.

Would really like to commend Nityaa because she is clearly passionate about architecture. She was able to express all her knowledge and passion in an interesting and accessible manner. Makes a big difference.

The tour was brilliantly done. Thank you for the opportunity of being a part of it.
Adina Goerke, Mumbai/Germany, April 2018
I think, besides learning so much from you, we just appreciate that some people in this often selfishly fast-growing city are also passionate about Mumbai's beautiful heritage. Who knows, maybe in one century or less nothing of it will be remaining but at least you documented it and we can prove it was there. And that alone makes me so happy 🙂

We had a great time with Atul and Nityaa. With their knowledge and enthusiasm I cannot wait to go on tours across other Art Deco districts with them!

Art Deco features, aesthetics of the buildings were explained beautifully and in details during this walk. I would love to repeat the experience.  I hope team arranges for another Art Deco walk in Mumbai soon.

Our hosts were very professional,  knowledgeable and articulate! We so much enjoyed the tour and the deep knowledge not only about the buildings but the time and circumstances around their creation.

The tour was informative and so visually interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, especially learning about Mumbai’s history from a design perspective.
Jennifer Duchesne, Toronto, Canada, Jan 2018
It exceeded my expectations not only in terms of the number of buildings visited and their delicious Deco-ness, but in exciting me about the huge potential benefit to Mumbaikar's in conserving them.

Friendly, informative guide. The tour made me notice little details I wouldn't have seen by myself. Afterwards I kept spotting other art deco features around Mumbai!
Dr N Fekri, Visiting Prof. of Politics from UK, October 2017
To see these gorgeous buildings that were so much a part of the landscape and especially of a human scale was an immense delight. You were both so knowledgeable
