Unseen Tours, is a not-for-profit social enterprise that trains and employs London’s homeless and vulnerably housed people, to lead walking tours of the city. With lockdown across the country, we have taken our guides’ expert knowledge to create a virtual quiz to add cheer to your virtual staff Christmas party.

The prize on offer
Our award winning walking tours of London make a great prize for the winning team!
We believe in giving our guides a platform and a voice, and empowering them to tell their own story. In this way, we provide them with paid work, confidence, opportunities to up-skill, and social inclusion.
Every aspect of the tours has been co-constructed with the guides themselves, making the Unseen Tours experience a genuine joint venture from the ground up.
At the same time, we offer a unique and eye-opening experience of London, to both tourists and long-time London residents. Our aim is to change public perceptions around homelessness in all its complicated aspects, and value the often untapped potential of people who have experienced it.
As part of our Christmas Quiz bundle, we are offering our private walking tours (usually priced £150) for £90 for upto ten people. The winning team will be able to choose a private walking tour of Brick Lane, Covent Garden, London Bridge, Shoreditch or Soho at a time that suits them, and discover a completely different side of London!
We are also able to offer gift cards for 2nd and 3rd prize winners. Drop us an email to discuss this!
We thoroughly enjoyed the quiz being played as a team, the stories provided by the guides gave us a personalised touch to the event, I would recommend a future event to others.
So fun and interactive! We loved the questions that the guides curated with their expert knowledge, and learnt so many quirky facts. Looking forward to the next one!
Loved the stories from the guides throughout the quiz. Really brought London to life, despite the lockdown!
The best way to learn more about one of the greatest cities in the world, created by people who definitely know it the best. Highly recommended.
