Thanks to the other reviewers for helping me put into words what I felt about this. I found it fascinating to hear the points of view and experiences of the guides who were all street kids. You get to see a slice of life that would be impossible otherwise. It is profoundly humbling, inspiring and moving as an experience. It... More

This was an excellent walk to see the other side of Delhi and the plight of homeless children. I found it both humbling and inspiring to see this Non Government Organisation give deprived kids a chance in life and achieve something that would be otherwise unobtainable. I know some of us find life hard. But not as hard as these... More

I had some free time on my first day and was looking for some sort of charity to do in the morning. This was a good compromise. It was the first thing I did in India, and provided a great introduction to the country and its wonderful people. It was moving, entertaining (our guides were a delight!) and insightful. The...

Good opportunity at once to see something of Old Delhi and get an insight into street children everyday basis. The trip is organized by former street children who know the area in and out. Many believe it is a walk in the slum - it is not. If that is what you are looking for - ask them about it... More

It was really interesting and moving to see how the kids loved and hear some of their stories.. Also it's a really good course.

I had seen this organization featured on the TV show "Operation Change" so as soon as I knew I would be in Delhi we reserved a walk for myself and friends. The guides met us and immediately charmed all of us. They were both honest about their pasts and at the same time warm, friendly, and funny. We visited a... More

This was an highlight of our trip- very sad to hear the stories of the street kids, but amazing to see the positive work the trust is doing. FYI They are asking for old digital cameras for the kids to use if anyone has any spare they can bring.

The walk is advertised (online and in Rough Guide) as a Paharganj city walk. This is misleading as there isn't really much exploration of Paharganj at all. You start at New Delhi train station and walk to one of their centres in Paharganj. Along the way there are 2 stops where the guides share their story about Salaam Baalak. The... More
