      Did the Sanjay Colony tour as a group of 4. Our guide was Hema, she is very passionate about the area and has a lovely sense of humour. Get a good overview of the colony, people very friendly, the children engaging, and just something everyone should do. 80 % of profits go back to supporting the colony.

      Very interesting and enthusiastically presented by Hema(spelling?). It was sad that we could not see the school at work.

      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.

      I was skeptical after reading some of the mixed reviews into various slum tours, but decided i would find out for myself anyway . Off i trotted with my partner and my pre conceptions in tow only to discover that i was so wrong in what i had expected to see . For people who have nothing in absolute terms i was amazed by the friendliness and sheer enthusiasm of the children as adults we met along the way . They all wanted to say hello and hi 5 us and the memory of the smiles they gave freely will stay with me forever . If going on tours like this is supposed to keep them in slums and encourage them to stay where they are then we should all be ashamed at the lack of opportunity that they face in education,housing and work . I saw nothing but a close knit community that despite everything that was stacked up against them in life looked happier and more content than i see in my own nieces and nephews back in london . If enough of the profits from tours like this are ploughed back into helping the community with education,healthcare and work opportunities then for the generations to come the outcomes can be improved . In fact after a 5 star luxury hotel stay then a tour like this should be the norm for us all . Aside from that this was our third tour in Delhi and the least exploitative. As our friendly guide Vijay from the Sanjay colony himself was with us the entire tour and it never once entered my head that I wasnt totally safe in that environment and also nobody tried to sell us anything either unusually . To finish the day we headed home on the metro with two of the other guides Stanley and Chitti who were going our way . They spent the entire journey chatting and being genuinely interested in talking about themselves,their aspirations and our lives back in the UK .
      Many thanks and All the best guys

      Really an amazing experience. I will strongly recommend this. It is so affordable that the organisation should charge a higher fee. I was surprised the condition of slum is very different from what I observed in Mumbai.

      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!

      We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Sanjay Colony. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the people who live and work within were so generous and friendly. We learnt so much and came away with a totally different perspective. Well worth doing this tour.

      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!!

      This was a very interesting tour. Wish photography was allowed during this. Learned a lot about the community-school although you are not allowed to go inside one, doctors office, the work of men and women, shops. My favorite part was trying my hand at sorting recycled fabric with the women.

      This is one of the tours you'll remember for the rest of your life. And also one of the places you really need a professional guide to take you. The organisation providing this tour works to enlighten people about the conditions and day to day life in Dehlis many slums. But foremost they use the profit to educate the children of the slum.

      Great guide, great tour that grasps your mind and heart. I would highly recommend this!

      Excellent tour, probably my most enjoyable and interesting tour in Delhi. For the cost of the trip this was well worth it. The guide was exceptional.

      I went on the Sanjay Colony Tour in June. It was an eye opening experience that I would have never had the opportunity to experience if it wasnt for the local tour operator. It was informative and interesting a real insight in to how thousands of people live and work in this community under such challenging circumstances. My guide, Ravi, was excellent. He explained every detail about the day to day lives of the people in Sanjay Colony. He was well informed and courteous. It was a real pleasure for me to spend time with him. A wonderful young man and credit to the tour company. I highly recommend this tour. It is a real education in life and the extreme conditions that some have to endure.

      My friend and I wanted to experience 'real' India, and this was something we thought would provide this. We were initially a little dubious about whether the tour would be voyeuristic, but happily it was not. The guides were extraordinarily friendly and very informative about the area, the slum and the people. We were shown local businesses, local housing, a Dr's surgery, and some of the schools, were was a highlight. The tour hugely helped in changing our preconceived notions of slums and the people who live within them. I would definitely recommend this tour for the educational and cultural aspects which are dealt with sensitively and proudly by the tour guides.

      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
