This was an eye opening experience for me. I appreciate even more my home and country although I don't think this was the intent of the tour. It was hard to see such poverty. But our guide said there is a strong sense of community and ownership. I would have liked a slightly longer tour to absorb more of what I was seeing. I thank the people of Sanjay for allowing me into their community

Fantastic tour, we were taken to our guides home and treated like family and also joined the community in a celebration meal. Such an interesting place and not at all what you would expect

This tour was well organised and led by Chitty. Yes, it rained heavily which gave another dimension to the reality of living in the Sanjay Colony. Wear stout shoes surfaces may be uneven and there is a reasonable amount of ground to be coverd The sights,sounds,smells are truly the reality for many. This well organised, lively, functioning community in an economically divided society is a lesson in the harsh realities of life. Our questions were answered we looked, walked and listened. An invigorating experience. We are older independent travellers from the UK and visited in late Jan.2018.

I had an amazing time! The locals were so friendly and I felt completely safe. My guide Shehinaz was knowledgable and answered all of my questions even sharing her personal experiences! Would definitely recommend!

Tour started at the train station with an explanation of the metro and how to navigate Delhi easily, which was nice. Guide, Shehnaz, explained the NGO's mission and purpose. Tour was a good pace. We stopped at different locations and services in the slum. There were all sorts of interesting sights and smells. We stopped at the head office of the NGO and spoke to the CEO and other staff, which was a nice bonus as we got to see and understand more about what the NGO does for the community. If you do not know much about Indian slum life, this tour gives you a good appreciation of how many Indians make the transition from village to city life. The tour allays misconceptions about slums being just poor people. The ticket price goes towards the education of 13 year old in the slum, which is great this includes life skills. It's a must do! Something to bear in mind, you're out in the heat of the day and it gets hot!!
