We had a really enjoyable walk around Leith with our guide Paul who was keen, funny and informative even in the face of some horrific weather. A great way to see a part of town we ordinarily might have skipped.

Invisible Cities is a social enterprise. We don’t believe in labels or stereotypes. We want to show that everyone has great potential, a fact reflected in our tour guides.

We train people affected by homelessness to become walking tour guides of their own city and offer these alternative tours to tourists and locals.

Our training focuses on confidence building, public speaking and customer service. We partner with professional tour guides to build bespoke tours and practice our routes.
