TOUR IMAGE
Visiting Barcelona and want to scratch the surface of this beautiful Mediterranean gem and leave a positive impact of your trip? How about joining a tour led by formerly homeless tour guides?
Our partners in Barcelona funded a social enterprise working as a work reinsertion project for the homeless since 2014. We exclusively train and employ those who have been homeless. In short we are taking creative action to solve a social problem - we are putting one of the city´s strengths (tourism) to work to solve one of the city's social problems (homelessness) in effect to try to create and pioneeer the movement towards a more equal distribution of the wealth created by tourism

Come and join us for a truly unique experience! Leave a positive impact of your trip to Barcelona by creating a job, a future, a new life for a homeless person and in return take home an unforgettable experience that surely will be one of the highlights of your visit to Barcelona!
