Car aggregator Ola has partnered with the Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) to launch an initiative ‘Mumbai Darshan’- a guided city tour service for tourists visiting the megapolis. The customisable package involves 10-hour or 100 kms rides to 10 Mumbai spots such as Juhu Beach, Mannat (residence of Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan), Haji Ali, Marine Drive, Gateway of India, and Siddhivinayak, among others, where tourists can ride with Ola, the company said in a statement issued here today.

“Maharashtra continues to be one of the most favoured tourist and investment destinations in India. With such a huge economic potential, the scope to provide customised and curated mobility services is truly enormous,” Ola’s Founding Partner Pranay Jivrajka said.
