tour description

Completely unique to Mumbai, the 125-year-old network of “dabbawalas”, bicycle delivery men who deliver lunch boxes from homes to workplaces every day for lunch, is not only a truly genius system but an incredible sight to behold. The mind-boggling logistics and flawless delivery system of the dabbawalas earned them a Six Sigma standing from Harvard Business School and is often studied by the world's leading companies, CEOs and business schools. During this unique experience, travellers get the chance to watch dabbawalas separate thousands of lunchboxes and transfer them in trolleys for delivery, before boarding a local train to Mahalaxmi Station to witness where the boxes are once again colour coded and sent out for delivery to corporate offices and government buildings.
