Delhi homestay & walking tours for street children

Our walking tours of Old Delhi have been running since 2012 and are featured in the Guardian’s ‘Top 10 Things to do in Delhi’. New for 2014-15 is a sister operation, “Diya Bed & Breakfast”. Both offer different perspectives on the capital’s usual options for tours and accommodation. Perspectives that provide the ethical or socially conscious traveller with a more rewarding experience; personal memories to take away and at the same time a chance to give back.

Our Walking tour:
– takes you through the narrow alleys in the heart of Old Delhi that you could not find by yourself
– offers tranquil temples, crumbling mansions, rooftop views, rickshaw rides, chai, the colourful wedding market and the unforgettable assault on all the senses that is Asia’s biggest spice market
– ends with a visit to the largest boys’ shelter run by Salaam Baalak Trust (SBT)

Our bed & breakfast:
– gives you the homestay feel (kitchen, lounge, shelves of books) and a beautiful private roof terrace, for the same or lower cost than one of the nearby hotels
– has been planned and designed with sustainability at its heart
– allows guests to mix with SBT volunteers as well as beneficiaries
– offers all kinds of local assistance, from buying a SIM card to choosing the right season for fruit; from booking rail tickets to visiting places off the beaten track in this city that offers so much but makes it hard to find some of the best corners
