Auto-rickshaws are a popular, easy and inexpensive way of getting around. I do find these drivers to be different from city to city.
In Mumbai, you will not find these in the areas of Colaba, Marine Drive etc where most tourists spend their time; you will have to make use of the black & yellow taxis.
When using the service of an auto-rickshaw, do decide on a fee before you get in. Unfortunately they sometimes have their own agenda, like taking you to emporiums etc where they receive commission ? it is usually not that difficult to convince them that you are not interested.
I met some great rickshaw drivers during my travels, who offered great service. They usually know the place quite well, and have a lot of knowledge. I had some good city tours with rickshaw drivers.
