Absolutely do this. I spent three weeks in India and this was a highlight. Your western values may make you think this is the wrong thing to do. It is not! These tours are run by a non corrupt NGO in Delhi. They need your help and use these tours to educate and finance education for the young. Not just book learning and school like you imagine it but the dissemination of skills that you would take for granted or have no need for. The will take you to see the real deal. People with nothing. You should see it. These people will not resent you and they don't want your pity. They are proud and were just as interested in me as I was in them. Not that I am ignorant but I learned the true sense of karma during my few hours with these people. They are absolutely no different than you are I but are simply unfortunate. Learn from them and help them at the same time. I am a bit time traveler and this was one of the best experiences I have had ever.

We actually did three tours with PETE led ably by Bheem and assisted by his friend Ashwani: the Slum Walk, the Old Delhi tour, and an experience with locals for Holi. The Slum walk was interesting -- Bheem leads a personal and sincere tour through the slum. It was cool to go with a local on a tour of Old Delhi because they know all the best places to sample food, and the coolest lookouts. Our Holi experience was very cool -- authentic as we actually went to a local house and had a chance to "play Holi" from the rooftops. It was an authentic experience that one could not get any other way. Thank you Bheem and Ashwani!!!

We went on the tour today. What a fantastic experience. We were aware the tour wasn't in our natural environment, but with our guide we felt safe throughout the tour. We were able to get a rare glimpse into what seems to be inherently Indian, very rough and life affirming at the same time. Life isn't easy, but there's hope. Thanks for letting us experience this.

That was my 2nd foodtour with PETE and I had high expectations. In the end I was super happy and they were exceeded. I booked the New Delhi Food Tour this time and had amazing 4 hrs. My girlfriend and I meet the founder Shiva in a local kindergarden, which is run by the foundation. After some delicious Masala Chai tea we had 5 stops a different local restaurants, ranging from hidden street food vendors to delicious BBQ shops. If you really look for some authentic food tour, I can highly recommend it. Thanks again to Shiva for showing us around. It would have been impossible on our own, as you never know which street food shops are hygienic.

My husband and I booked this walk through Old Delhi, specifically with Pete because of what they do for the community. We expected everything to be busy, as we were there during Diwali. As such, we also knew that old Delhi and Chandni Chowk would be busy with people shopping. Shiva and a young trainee met us and took us through a decent walk of old Delhi, where we had plenty of food and even visited a Sikh Temple, which we wouldn't have done on our own. Both of them were very patient in the chaos that was Diwali. The tour was decent, but a little uncomfortable, which is where our only issues come into play. Shiva was on his phone quite a bit, which is unprofessional. His trainee was eager to do well, but very shy, and also a bit uncomfortable with the fact his boss was on the phone a lot. The most irritating thing though was when we asked more about Pete and the communities they serve, he just responded, "uh yeah around here". That doesn't really tell me anything. I think the foundation is great and the basic building blocks are there, but if you're going to offer legitimate tours, you need to work on customer service a bit.

Hi, Shannon thanks for the review,diwali is a busy time for everybody as celebrations starts many days before and as also time to buy gifts, sweets and bonus to people who work with us whole year and that need guidance during the tour call came 2 or 3 times regarding that and explained u abt it and also I believe work abt anything cannot be explained in words or story as long as u don't see it by your own eyes and feel it..Among all the crowd where no space even for standing is there and going thru places can only explain abt the things you were seeing by your eyes and explained as well abt it but advice u as well to join our charity tour if want to know more abt it and see by your eyes..I really feel uncomfortable explaining abt what the foundation does feels like praising myself as one of the founder, also never said (uh around here ) (what does it means? don't make sense) maybe u misunderstand among all the noises and crowd I am sorry for the misunderstanding and suggest if guest want to know more abt foundation they can visit our school and spend sometime with kids and can serve them them food(prepared everyday by our cooks) and practice poems and numbers with them to have a individual experience..we hope to see ur husband and u again on your next visit to india..Thanks once Again for taking our tour..
