We offer alternative tours to locals and tourists.
Invisible (Manchester) is inspiring and life changing!
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.
Yesterday’s tour was great. Daniel was good guide and a really warm and welcoming person into the bargain.
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.

It’s been four months since we officially started taking people ‘Off the Cobbles’ in Manchester, and well, what a four months it has been. We’ve been featured in The Guardian, Manchester Evening News, Channel 5 and even been featured multiple times on The BBC. Most importantly, however, Danny, our ex-army veteran who spent four years sleeping rough around the streets of Manchester and Birmingham, has been able to tell his story to hundreds of people, some coming from all four corners of the world.
