What you can expect
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 practise our routes.
Join the Invisible (York) ‘Family Friendly Fun Tour’, which is the only tour of the city that has been specifically developed with children in mind.
Tour guide Gavin is an affable dad, who has struggled with mental ill health and homelessness in the past, but draws upon his personal experiences as a former play-worker and teaching assistant to present a unique view of the city.
Gavin has had an enhanced DBS check and his immersive tour is designed to spark the imagination and curiosity of adults and children alike.
