Suhasini stands out as one of the most superlative hosts I've ever encountered. Her manner, knowledge and sense of organization is rare. Thank you so much for the experience.

This was a wonderful opportunity to showcase Mumbai’s Art Deco heritage and Vishaka took that opportunity fully.

It was very enriching to understand these places in their social, cultural and urban context, and to learn more about the specificities of Art Deco in Bombay.

The tour far exceeded my expectations. The best part is the fact that it is conducted by a researcher who is actually working to preserve these heritage sites. That makes them a storehouse of knowledge that you can easily dig into.

A walking tour with the conservation architect of Art Deco Mumbai Trust is a must in Mumbai.  It helps understand why these buildings were built in this location and we were shown many details that a casual passer-by could never see and appreciate.

The walk was truly one of the highlights of CultureCon 2020 and we are so grateful to each one of you for making it happen.
Visitor from Melbourne, Australia, Nov 2019
Our tour was truly wonderful and a genuine highlight of our trip to India. It exceeded our high expectations in every way. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the buildings and their history, making them come alive for us.
Kavita Muthappa, Bangalore, June 2019
Our guide was very well informed and well researched on the subject. We have driven past these buildings on our visits and now we are equipped with little history, details and trivia which we had no clue about.
