Voyeuristic poverty tourism? Gawking at the misery of the underprivileged?  If this is your idea of a Dharavi slum tour, then you're severely mistaken. Tours of Dharavi in Mumbai, the largest slum in Asia, have grown in popularity in recent years -- but for a very good reason. These tours aim to dispel any notions that people may have of Dharavi being a place of misery, and are actually very inspiring. We show what people are capable of achieving despite adverse conditions.
