We offer alternative tours to locals and tourists.
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.
We met Laura, back in January 2019 when she first joined the Invisible (Manchester) Team as a trainee. It has been an incredible experience watching her grow into the exuberant and cheerful character that she is today. Her self-confidence and passion has grown every step of the way, from choosing a tour theme, delving into extensive research and offering her tour to hundreds of visitors. Today marks World Autism Day, a subject close to Laura’s heart, she has written this short piece about her new tour, how she is coping with isolation and why we should all be celebrating World Autism Day.01 April 2020
As you all know, COVID-19 has had dramatic consequences for Invisible Cities and our award winning guides. With no tours currently running in any of our cities, they have all become at risk financially. However we are determined to support them through this!25 March 2020
