      Extraordinary experience
      A very interesting, eye-opening guided tour to a slum coloni in Delhi. Shown around by a local, knowledgeable inhabitant, Dolly, we learned much more about everyday life among poorer segments of Delhi. Don't miss this offer to get a most unusual experience far beyond an typical tourist sight.

      Breathtaking
      What a breathtaking and fascinating experience. Dolly, was the kindest and most knowledgeable guide. We learnt so much and we hope that more tourists visit to contribute to the best of causes, which is learning about areas like Sanjay Colony. Education and understanding is key!

      The real Delhi
      Authentic tour through the real Delhi, which left a lasting impression. Our guide was great. He showed us various aspects of life in the slums: schools, sanitary facilities, work, healthcare. Really great!

      Eye-popping street art tour!
      I spent my first morning in Delhi exploring street art in the Lodhi District. Wall murals adorn public housing for government workers. My tour guide Tavrej was enthusiastic about sharing the themes behind each mural; he was knowledgeable and a lot of fun. I felt culturally enriched by the art and in getting to know him. Highly recommended!

      Fascinating, informative and seems empathetic
      Fascinating and not extractive. Our tour was led by someone who had lived in the community for some years, and for that reason perhaps it didn't feel too awkward being a tourist imposing into this fascinating but poor world. It seems strange that the term slum is still used, where its become very un-pc in most places, but maybe honest. The organisation that organises the tour seems to be doing good work within the community, and their claim to highlight the positives of life here, alongside its challenges seemed reasonable, though what do I know.

      Beautiful old and new features of Delhi
      Had the tour to myself, and what a great experience! Saurev was very knowledgeable about the sites and shared his perspective on local culture. I enjoyed seeing the modern street art along with the historical tombs in Lodi Garden.

      Just a normal day in a slum 👀
      I remember telling my family I want to take a slum tour in Delhi and the scared look on their faces. This tour is something you have to see if you want to understand how Delhi can expand in the rate it does. My tour guide Ajay comes from this colony so I had the best experience one can have. All my questions were answered. People living in Sanjay colony are doing the best they can to keep their slum safe. They are working and trying to give their children a better fututre. You will see their daily life, work and children having fun with maybe a little money but a big sense of community. I hope the NGO can help more children to reach their dreams :)

      Experience not to be missed!
      I am extremely happy with the Dolly (my guide), the topics, the different explanations and the experience by itself. I can 100% recommend this tour as it will allow you to know the other side of India. The one that keeps remind you that small actions in your daily life can impact thousand of people. I really hope this comment will allow to bring more and more customers to Reality Tours & Travel. I even book two more tours with them as my experience was outstanding. btw. No pictures are allowed because of privacy of people. Just go and see it yourself.

      Highly recommended
      Naresh has a great understanding of art and Indian history. In addition to explaining the many street art pictures, he gave me an insight into the everyday life of the inhabitants of New Delhi and introduced me to the basics of the Bahavadgita. Very enriching! Thank you very much for this wonderful tour!

      Two fabulous tours in one day!
      I had a wonderful day with Sam who took me on the Lodhi Art Colony and Sanjay Slum tour. He was a fountain of information about both of these places. I learned so much and will convince others to go on these tours. The driver Mohan was great too. Thank you Reality Tours!

    I highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to explore old Delhi and try some delicious food. The food we tried at each stop was great, but even better was getting to experience Old Delhi with a knowledgeable and organized guide to help us. We wouldn’t have been able to navigate this hectic neighborhood without him! We also learned a bit about the food, the history, and current sites in Old Delhi.

    The whole trip was excellent. We got to the heart of the old city of Delhi and experienced the buzz of street life with an exceptional tour leader. We tried a selection of very tasty foods and drinks. Often when travelling there's a risk of getting stomach problems from street food so It was great to have a guide with us who could take us to authentic places to eat and drink where these concerns weren't an issue. It was a great introduction to India.

    My wife and I met up with Naresh for a food tour through Old Delhi. We took a quick and easy metro ride to the heart of the city and the second we arrived we were thrown back in time to a bustling market. It was amazing. The sights and smells were incredible. During the tour Naresh stopped at various food stalls with each stop being entirely different than the previous. All of them were wonderful and provided a well rounded sampling of India’s local food scene. We can’t recommend this tour enough and think anyone who visits Delhi should see this for themselves.

    Coming to India for the first time can be overwhelming but our guide, Abhi (pronounced like Abbey) made us feel so comfortable and safe during our tour! Abhi had a wealth of knowledge about all things India. We appreciated his kindness and attention to detail throughout our day. We really didn’t know too much about Indian dishes beyond Chicken Tikka Masala at our local Indian restaurant, but Abhi really taught us a lot and introduced us to the culture. He answered all of our questions with detail and explained so much history as well. We enjoyed our time very much and would recommend Abhi to anyone. Thank you Abhi for such a great time!

    Such an amazing experience. My guide Abhishek was excellent. He knew where to go for all the good food, explained the delicious goodies we ate, and also described the history and culture in the parts of the city we visited. He even showed me how to use the Metro! At the end of the night I was full...from eating, seeing so many sights and just experiencing Old Delhi at ground level. I also got some great street photography shots as well. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Thanks again Abhishek.

    Was super fun and a great way to get a taste of what Old Dehli was like (no pun intended). Naresh was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the city, it’s history and what food items are unique to Old Dehli. The tuck tuck rides in between certain food stops were entertaining too! Keep all your elbows and legs inside or else ! Really gives you a sense of the craziness of this city with so many people. Naresh explained all the food stops and items with pride and it was delicious (especially the fried chicken and the sugar coated fried dough like dessert.) Naresh is a pro at this and it was good amount of time to be out and about. We did the 1 pm tour and the food carried us through dinner ! Thank you !

    VJ was amazing! He led us through the streets of the market of Old Delhi like a pro, finding us things to eat that were safe and delicious and explaining them and watching them be made. We had enough food that we were all full by the end of it, and he gave us some history in the meantime. Afterwards he loaded us all on the subway and told us how to get where we needed to go which was very helpful! I would recommend this tour definitely!

    This is more than a food tour, it’s a cultural journey though one of Delhi’s most fascinating regions and a fantastic introduction to Indian food and the history of Old Delhi.

    Our guide Saurav was excellent, he was knowledgeable of the food and the culture of Delhi, took care of transport and ordering food and made sure everyone was experiencing the tour at their own pace. I would’ve been lost in the tangled streets of Old Delhi without him, and would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience some fantastic food.

    We had such a wonderful time with Abhishek on the Old Delhi food tour. He took us around Old Delhi and explained the history and cultures is addition to sharing the traditions that led to such delicious food! Although Old Delhi was very busy we always felt safe and Abhi took care of everything, including our metro passes and the rickshaws. We had a wonderful time!

    We had an incredible time exploring Old Delhi with our guides Sourav and Ajay. They were both extremely professional and friendly. We felt very safe the entire tour, despite the area being somewhat chaotic. Some locals approached us throughout the tour, but Sourav and Ajay spoke to them with empathy and kindness. Reality Tours also have an NGO program where a large percentage of their profits are re-invested into local education, so you can rest assured that your money is being spent with an ethical company who cares about the community. Very grateful to be able to see a part of this city that we would find difficult navigating on our own. Oh and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Delhi 🙂
