This is an eye opening experience. If you want to see not only the pretty, grand, beautiful monuments but also real lives of the most hidden corners of society, you would learn a lot and feel a lot. There are not many tourists these days so Sam, my tour guide gave me a private tour. I could engage with people living and working in the slum, which was very touching.

Great and respectful insight into the life of people living there. Changed my view of slums completely and the way how happy and successful people live and work. Very eye opening.

we saw and learned so much. Sam was an excellent guide and we loved that he was actually from the area we toured.

My guide was Sam and took care of us. Very informative tour and I highly recommend this tour to others.

A must di experience in Delhi. Highly recommended.
