“The first time I went to Old Delhi I was fascinated by the colour, the chaos, the cows. I had a great time soaking up the atmosphere but no idea what was going on around me. To get the experience, with the addition of context and a deeper understanding, I suggest a tour with Street Connections. The tours are led by well-informed, friendly former street children who were helped by the Salaam Baalak Trust. They include the best bits of the markets and streets and highlights of the architecture – places you wouldn’t stumble upon alone.”
