Informative walk through Delhi's back streets. Great organisation and you can really see the happiness on the kids' faces. You must help that tiny bit when in Delhi to learn more about its forgotten children and to put a smile on their faces.

I read about the trust in my Lonely Planet guide and am so pleased that I decided to add this to our Delhi itinerary. To see an organisation that is run by street kids, for street kids, is nothing short of inspirational. Our guides were exceptional and happy to share their own stories with us and it was wonderful meeting... More

My husband and I did the city walk in old Delhi together with our charming guide, Lalid. The whole experience was bittersweet; the time spent was uplifting but at the same time we saw a lot of sorrow and sadness. I suppose that is what India is all about - contradictions. We would recommend this walk to any visitor to... More

Our tour guide, Ajay, himself a former street kid guided us around parts of "Old Delhi" for two hours and introduced us to the Salaam Baalak Trust. This charitable organisation cares for street kids and helps them to get health care, education and a safe place to live. During the walk, we visited three Salaam Baalak sites and the work... More

It was great to hear how these kids survived on the streets and how Salaam Balak Trust were able to get them from a lifetime of living as homeless people. A really worthwhile walk and talk

Our first day of 3.5 weeks in India and we did the morning city walk. We were running late and were resigned to missing out, but fortunately caught the group before they'd gone far. Ajay was a very generous guide, answering all questions fully. It was heart-wrenching to hear the reasons for the young ones ending up on the streets,... More

While in Delhi we wanted to discover the city with a guide. We found the tour via the lonely planet and it sounded like a great way to help the trust . We were met by a volunteer who introduced us to LALIT our guide. We had a great time for more than 2 hours. We went alley ways I... More

Though the walk isn't long and may not be what some expect it was an amazing experience. You walk down some small alleyways by the New Delhi Train Station and Main Bazaar Road. Your guide will tell you their story and about India's street kids. The recommended donation is R300 but you can donate more as you see fit. If... More
