Tour New Delhi With a Unique Kind of Guide

I've traveled all over the world but I have never had such a unique guide as those provided by the children of Salaam Baalak Trust City Walk . Unfortunately, these children know the Paharganj area quite well as they grew up on the city streets.

Now, with the aide of the non-profit Salaam Baalak Trust, these children now have food, shelter and future opportunities -- with some of them working as guides. The child guides lead their guides through back streets lined with temples, recycling shops and a pottery market. Personal takes of survival are often part of the tour commentary. The city walk ends near one of the shelters, where visitors can observe the children in their activities and classes.
