After booking our walk, they followed up with us to make sure we would have no trouble finding the meeting place. The guides are charming. The stories are told in a straightforward way, not sensationalized. It was a highlight of our two weeks in New Delhi.

These walks are run by a NGO that works with former streetkids, providing them with shelter and education. The tour guides are former streetkids themselves. We opted for a private tour as we were too late for the group tour. The NGO was very flexible, providing us with a one hour rather than two hour tour (as my mother was... More

Our first morning in India and the best possible start. On this walk you learn about the intricacies and contradictions of this complex nation. Don't expect a scenic stroll rather an insight into some real aspects of the city. The visit to the day centre for the kids is invigorating and humbling - an indelible memory. This organisation does fantastic... More

We love India.... But find the times you avert your eyes from begging children (amongst other sights) tricky at best or at worst simply haunting. Which is why we always try to research a charity to donate to in advance of our visit, which is how we ended up doing the Salaam Trust city walk. A meagre donation of 300... More

We did the city walk, which others have said, isn't really a walk (tour) but a chance to walk a short way with the street kids and see the work of the foundation. (There is a longer heritage walk if you want more of a tour). The guides were both lovely boys and their stories were what made the walk... More

It was a great experience in the morning. The guide an ex street kid was informative and it was a good to see the off beaten paths of Central Delhi and also the stories of street children. The little kids dancing to Bollywood music was a treat. I would recommend this walk to everyone visiting Delhi and Delhites.

I found our time in India extremely disturbing. We travel and stayed in the ultimate in luxury while it seemed that so many of the Indian citizens were suffering and it made me feel powerless This wonderful organization gave me hope that maybe slowly things can change . You must do this . It is a good amount of walking... More

I wanted to show my teenage daughter an example of a volunteer programme where she could make a difference with her gap year when she finishes school. We joined the Salaam Balaak Trust City Walk to get an idea of the amazing work this NGO does, helping kids off the streets of Delhi. The walk is guided by ex-street kids... More

We went on the 2hour trip in our 2nd day in India, after a friend had recommended it. This is definitely a 2hour trip everybody visiting Delhi should go on. Very good guide, so interesting to hear here history, see the backside of Delhi and meet the boys in one of their homes. Very fascinating, and gives a good look... More
