Best tour ever done! So much valuable insight, honest discussions and endless smart conversation. Visiting the after school was touching and eye-opening. Would recommend this tour over and over for anyone who would like to understand more about Delhi and its differences.

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!

We went on this eyeopening walking tour to visit the Sanjay Colony slum. The tour was very informative, but relaxed at the same time, focusing on interaction both ways. We learned about the living conditions in the slum, the working opportunities, the education system and the healthcare services while walking the narrow paths, seeing all these locations while meeting the people living and working there, learning that there is much more to slums than what we believed. The views from the teaching quarters were certainly memorable and impressive, as well as the newfound insight we gained for slum life. The work Delhi by Locals is doing is really inspiring, so I truly recommend to take their tours to help do some good while in Delhi.

Our very friendly guide Pradeep picked us up at the location we had agreed upon and guided us into the quite developed Sanjay Colony Slum. We walked through the narrow streets and were able to enter the house of his NGO, see a dance class for kids and also the stunning view from its rooftop. Very interesting were also the visit of a local house, a tea shop and getting answers to all our questions about daily life and customs in the slum. We would have loved to also see a school from inside as well as the Hindu temple. The tour is absolutely worth if one wants to see a maximum of facets of Delhi
