    This is a unique tour that offers insight into the daily lives of a Dilliwala (a person from Delhi). We believe that one of the most important things when you travel to a new place, is to understand the culture and systems of a place, and this tours helps you do exactly that. We will take you around the Sanjay Colony slum, which has a population of about 60,000 people. During the tour, you will visit a temple where you will understand what a significant role faith plays in people's lives. You will also learn about the daily challenges faced by the locals, such as access to water. On the other hand, you will also see how education, electricity and hygiene systems flourish in these tight, resource constrained areas. You will ultimately understand how significant a close-knit community can be. Our guides are locals, so you can ask them as many questions you like and hear their personal experiences. We do this tour in an entirely respectful way and hence do not allow photography during the tour. The best part is, that 50% of the profits from Delhi by Locals go towards supporting the community of the Sanjay Colony slum, through Learning by Locals, our sister non-profit organisation.

I travelled to south India for a wedding and decided to spend a few days visiting Delhi and Agra. As a lone female traveller, I wanted to feel safe but still be able to experience the wonders of Delhi. After much research I contacted Pradeep and explained what I was looking for.
