Now, Tourists Can Get Unique Guided Tours Of Mumbai City By Booking An Ola Cab
Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) and Ola Cabs(app based taxi aggregator) tie up and sign an agreement to provide tourists a unique experience of Mumbai darshan.
From Thursday, you can get a new ‘Mumbai Darshan’ option using the app.
Tourists can choose a 10-hour or 100-km package comprising a guided tour of places of interest spread across the city.
Tourists will be provided a guided tour of the city and hotspots such as Marine Drive, Haji Ali Mosque, Mannat, Juhu Beach, Siddhivinayak and The Gateway of India and some other places of interest like restaurants, selfie-points, etc.
Customers could also avail the option of tour guides. A total of 100 guides have been sanctioned in Mumbai and 400 throughout Maharashtra.
The initiative aims to provide trained drivers with the requisite skill set to guide tourists around Mumbai and explain the city’s unique landmarks and culture to them. Drivers will be trained through material available on the app and through classroom and field training. Tourism brochures are to be placed in the cabs to give customers a deeper understanding of the city.
State Minister of Tourism, Jaykumar Rawal, said , “Mumbai is an international city and tourists visiting here should be given the service of such standard. We are committed to provide better service and this is one small step in this direction”, according to to The Hindu.
In the coming months Ola will work towards enhancing the offering with additions such as a customised tourist map of the city, curated lists of tourist attractions and things to do, among others.
