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

We have been through Delhi many times on our various trips to India and had no idea that this Trust existed. We spent an extra night in the city in order to find out about the Trust. We were met by a young girl (trainee but she did really well) She is the only female guide, the other eight being... More

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 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
