This was my favourite thing I did while in Delhi and one of the best experiences of my 2 weeks in India. Whilst it is great to see historical buildings and eat wonderful food there is nothing like gaining an understanding and meeting the people who make up the city you are in. It is a real honour that these... More

My mother and i recently did the Trust walk as we wanted to really see and understand all of india including its ups and downs and found this walk to be inspiring and can not fault it. The tour guides are ex street children offering you first hand knowledge and their own heartbreaking and inspiring stories and how the organisation... More

My husband and I were really moved by our recent tour with the SB Trust kids. These tour guides offer their own very personal stories - often heartbreaking - and open your eyes to the daunting challenges of being homeless yet still drawn to the freedom of earning money for yourself as they did at such young ages. You'll gain... More

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.
