Smile India Tours
The India Group Tour Company with a difference.
Following this philosophy, we donate 100% of our net profits to the Salaam Baalak Trust, a highly reputable children’s charity, working with street children in Delhi and Mumbai.
The donations will be made in the presence of the Group Tour Clients, in the Delhi offices of Salaam baalak Trust, following which we will take a street tour, guided by the children themselves. They will tell us about their lives on the street, their stories while at times, confronting, are also full of hope for their future, thanks to the good work being done by this charity.
Smile India Tours will conduct the two advertised tours for the year 2015. However from the year 2016 and onwards, we intend to expand our range of tours on offer and will be conducting a minimum of four tours per year.
