Concierge.com's insider take:

Navigating around Mumbai's intense streets can be exhausting and overwhelming at the best of times, so go easy on yourself and sign up for a tour. Bombay Heritage Walks conducts a variety of tours focusing on the architecture of various neighborhoods, from the Gothic delights in Fort to Churchgate's Art Deco buildings and Bandra's Portuguese-era hamlets. If you'd prefer to be shuttled around, hop a ride aboard Nilambari, an open-roofed double-decker bus that traverses the historic streets of Fort by night, to soak in the illuminated colonial-era buildings that are still Mumbai's most impressive structures. Nilambari operates tours every Saturday and Sunday 7 to 8 pm and 8:15 pm to 9:15 pm, starting at the Gateway of India.

To get some perspective on the more complicated nature of Mumbai, take one of Reality Tours and Travels' sensitively run forays into Dharavi, Asia's largest slum. More than a million people crowd into Dharavi's 430 acres, and 15,000 small industrial units chug away within its narrow alleyways, recycling plastic and manufacturing leather, jewelry, chemicals, and clay pots. You will see men laboring in steamy warehouses, families living cheek by jowl, and children playing near open drains. The chirpy 18-year-old guide, Ravi, keeps the mood light with incessant banter, but there's no escaping the reality that this is how 60 percent of Mumbai lives. Eighty percent of the profits after tax go to local NGOs who work in Dharavi.
