      One of the Happiest Experiences of My Life
      I must admit, one of the happiest moments of my life was stepping out of the metro station and finding myself in a scene I had only ever seen in movies—a reality I had always dreamed of being a part of. Reflecting back, I realize how much I enjoyed the trip, feeling constantly surrounded by the warmth and security provided by the Delhi By Locals team. As a foreigner visiting India for the first time, I wanted to relax and experience the country in its entirety—its vibrant colors, challenges, beauty, and unique smells. This wouldn't have been possible without the comfort and safety that the team ensured for us. I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to Sleiman for creating such a wonderful and warm experience.

      Best tour guide in Delhi! Truly knowledgeable and friendly!
      We had a wonderful visit at Nizamuddin dargah. Salman our tour guide is truly knowledgeable about the history of the locations. He was really kind and has a friendly nature. My father really had a great time with Salman discussing about the history of dargah. He was really patient to listen to our queries and answered each of them politely. I also want to thank Pradeep and Annanya for guiding us for the visit. Thank you 😊 You guys rock!! regards, Nazneen Andaman Islands

      Hidden gems and rich experience!
      From first meeting Salman in the early morning until afternoon we were treated to a clear intro, and then a broad exposure to Old Dehli. His orientation to the city including the impressive metro public transportation system laid a great foundation for our whole stay in Dehli … then we set out to experience Old Dehli from the reality of street level and back alleys, shortcuts and even briefly an upper tier. All along the way we learned more fascinating history with a very personal touch! The stories and detail within the Old Dehli context was an extremely rich experience! Thank you!

      Fascinating tour of Old Delhi
      Amazing Old Delhi street food tour with Pradeep. He is so knowledgeable and friendly. We felt safe and comfortable with him, and he was happy to answer all of our questions — about any topic! Great food, great sites, great time.

      Unseen Delhi
      What a fantastic journey. Salman was a terrific guide, as he dove into personalized details of what life in Old Delhi was like. There was so much to see, hear, and smell. We walked deep into the neighborhoods of Old Delhi and even visited a training school deep between alleys and walkways. As we walked and sat we covered the history, language, and culture of Delhi and of India.

      First time in Delhi
      My first time in Delhi and Salman from Delhi by Locals was the most amazing tour guide. Such a personable young man and very knowledgeable. I would have no hesitation recommending Delhi by Locals to any group of travellers.

      Wonderful experience!
      I took a private Old Delhi tour with Salman on 6 April. Salman was the best guide I had in my 10 days in India. I learned a lot and he was fun to talk to -- I felt like I was meeting a new friend rather than taking a guided tour. Anyway, I highly recommend this company -- thanks so much for a great experience!

      Truly Amazing insight in to local life of Hazrat Nizamuddin.
      We have been on many tours with Delhi by Locals over the years and have never been disappointed. This was the first time we had been to Hazarat Nizamuddin. Salman was our guide, an enthusiastic and personable young man. We learned at lot about the history of the Sulfi culture and were particularly attracted to the poet Mirza Ghalib whose tomb is in that area. However, pit is not just the history that we experienced as we were taken around many streets and open spaces where we could see life being played out in its many forms. Salman was raised in Hazrat Nizamuddin and pointed out his home where he still lives. This made the tour so special as Salman introduced us to his friends as we met them along the way. We were fortunate to be able to witness the Breaking of the Fast during Ramadan. We believe that this concept of having guides that live and breath the life of the area makes the tours so special. It is also a bonus knowing that profits from the tours help to fund the amazing work of Learning by Locals. Thank you Salman, thank you Delhi by Locals and thank you Pradeep.

      Delhi by Locals are the BEST!
      Pradeep and his team are the best tour company in Delhi - in my opinion! This is our third visit and we wouldn’t consider using anyone else. They are like our Indian family. Knowledgeable, kind, accommodating, honest and reliable - what more could you want?! If you are visiting Delhi please contact them - they will look after you.

    We had a wonderful time in India with Delhi by Locals. In my opinion, Pradeep and Salman are the best guide you can find in India. Unlike other guides, Pradeep and Salman are passionate about their work. They love their job and they went above and beyond to guide us in the tour. They are extremely Professional. We had New Delhi tour, the Old Delhi Tour and the Slump Tour. All of them we enjoyed. We meet them as a guide and we said goodbye to them as friends.
    If you ever need a guide for Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, Delhi by Locals are the one you should use.

    We did the local Delhi tour and slum tour. This is the best tour by far. Salmon and Guaruv took us to Old Delhi via metro line. They met us at hotel and walked with us to metro. This tour was extremely detailed and showed us a part of Delhi we would never have seen on our own. We did the Red Fort, Old Delhi markets, spice, wedding and rode an electric rickshaw. We also did the slum tour a few days later. Pradeep is extremely knowledgeable in the ins and outs of slum. Our perception of the slums was quashed and we were very surprised. Pradeep also reinvests into the slums through education. If there is 1 tour this must be it. Highly recommended

    For those of us fortunate enough to travel extensively, there usually comes a point when you realize you’ve seen a lot of cities and met many residents but you don’t really KNOW anything about them. You have email addresses and photos but don’t feel a genuine connection with anyone you’ve met or anyplace you’ve seen. My tour of the Sanjay Colony slum with Pradeep of Delhi by Locals was the first time I felt that connection. I’ll only take off-the-beaten-path tours in the future and hope to make that meaningful connection again. Thank you, Pradeep and Delhi by Locals.

    As tourists we often stay in the areas with the general tourist attractions, but I highly recommend the Real Life in a Delhi Slum tour. Try branching out, because I think it will enhance your expeirence in Delhi and India.

    If you are looking for an unforgettable experience in India, look for Delhi by Locals. The whole team works tirelessly for your experience and getting along with them is so natural as they are great people and speak excellent English (Pradeep, Gaurav, Surej, Karan and Samran are just a few that made my trip incredibly fun).

    The slum tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Delhi, it was confronting and not at all what I envisaged. Of course the living conditions invoked a sense of guilt and sadness, but at the same time we were able to see the community thrive in their given conditions and lead fulfilling lives that revolved around their family, especially the education for their children. Delhi by Local guides were sensitive and aware of how we felt about the tour and shared with us relevant information while not overwhelming us. I believe it is of paramount importance to have guides who are extremely aware of Delhi's cultural/social norms as the city is fast-paced and there are many little nuances to be aware of.

    Thank you to Pradeep for managing such a great experience for us. I will definitely be back~!

    Visiting Sanjay Colony was extremely insightful to learn about the reality of slum life. We walked through the paths that the residents use, visited the site where cloth scraps are sorted and tin nameplates are produced, visited a market, met a family and witnessed how they live, and visited the NGO Learning by Locals. All in all, a very valuable experience for anyone. Pradeep was also an outstanding guide -- knowledgeable, patient, and committed to helping us understand this aspect of life in Delhi. Thank you, Delhi by Locals!
