This is a great way to explore the city and here about the not so glamorous life in India from people who have lived on the streets. The project is great as it helps street kids have a brighter future by giving them shelter and education. It's a fab project and a real eye opener.

We met with the guides early morning and they were friendly and funny from the start. Clearly noticeable in their bright blue tshirts! The girl that walked us around was lovely. She talked us through the walk as we went and stopped at various places along the way. I was expecting to see street children but instead we went to... More

My friend and I booked this prior to arriving in Delhi. This tour was a great way to see Delhi and hear about the good work that the trust does. I was expecting to see children lining the streets and around the station, but this was not the case. We were told about the history of the trust and areas... More

Walking around the neighbourhood, being told the tough truth about living in these streets as a kid - was hard, but an amazing experience. Junaid, our guide, took us for a good walk explaining different elements of the neighbourhood, how you end up living there, what you do and care for - and what the Salam Baalak Trust can do....

The most incredible experience ever. We attended the city walk with our two children, ages 9 and 12, led by Lalit. It was an eye-opening experience to hear and see the stories of India's street children and their survival. Although the walk was unsettling at times, Lalit did an excellent job in engaging my children and to make them feel... More

Get ready to have your heart ripped right out of your chest. To hear the stories of life on Delhi's mean streets from its most vulnerable is almost unbearable. There so many people living on the edge in this country, sadly many of them children, and even sadder, most will never have the chance at a better life through organizations... More

Your guide will be a former street child, rescued from the streets by the Salaam Baalak Trust. This is just one of the activities they undertake. We were taken to look around one of their 'homes' for boys, where they have a dormitory, food, a program of education and peaceful prayer. He will tell you how he came to be... More

Very unique walking tour through the back streets of New Delhi with former street kids, going into streets and alleyways that most tourists wouldn't venture into. Definitely takes you into places that other tourist guides wouldn't take you. It can be heatbreaking to see how some of these children live and try to survive on the street, while we stand... More

Children have a right to love and support but this is not so for many children in India. More than 80,000 children each year are trafficked within India alone. It was great to be guided around a poor area of India by a child who knows what it is like to struggle. Who now with the support of the Trust... More
