Guided Day Trip with the Dabbawalas - the World's Best Food Delivery System!

Kick-starting the morning with an immersive experience with the Tiffin Men of Mumbai city!

The Dabbawalas or the 6 sigma workers of Mumbai manage to deliver over 5,00,000 boxes of lunch to their rightful owners with extreme precision. Studied by consultants and business schools for the secrets of their proclaimed near-flawless efficiency, the dabbawalas have been feted by British royals (Prince Charles) and titans of industry (Richard Branson) alike. Even FedEx, which supposedly knows something about logistics, has studied them extensively.

When in Mumbai, the Dabbawala experience gives you a great insight on how this community run business runs as smoothly and makes lives of Mumbaikars much easier, and through this experience we want you to live their lives for one day.
