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.

The Royal Mile is a microcosm of Edinburgh; its buzzing atmosphere, music, and history show some of the best things Edinburgh has to offer in just a 1.81km stretch. It's hard not to get swept away by the enchanting atmosphere of The Royal Mile, each nook and cranny is rich in stories of tales long gone by.
Step back to the 15th century and wander down Advocate's Close. The entrance is opposite St Giles’ Cathedral on The Royal Mile and is a must-visit on your Edinburgh trip.
There's a certain magic to The Royal Mile; in a way, it almost feels timeless.
Treat yourself to a flattering (or not so flattering) portrait of yourself and your loved ones with caricature.
Located at the top of The Royal Mile, The Camera Obscura and World of Illusions is a great day out for all the family.
There you have it! We hope you've enjoyed our tour through the best spots on the Royal Mile, some of which you may never have heard of!17 May 2022
