But wait—there’s myrrh…
By including Unseen Tours as part of your Christmas party, you can impress your team and business associates by aligning profit with purpose, showing them that you care about making a positive social impact in London also.
As a social enterprise, the majority of the ticket revenue is paid to our tour guides, enabling them to do a job they love whilst they chart a path out of vulnerability. The rest of the ticket revenue is reinvested back into the organisation, so that we can grow our social impact.
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.
The amount of historical facts and personal insights were fascinating. The tour was visually stunning with regards to street art that I didn’t know much about. It felt like I entered into a secret underground world. Everyone in our group loved it.
We were all fairly familiar with Covent Garden having worked in a local hotel, yet Viv managed to take us to places we’d never been, and share stories we didn’t know. Her local knowledge, and historical knowledge is incredible, and her personality is just so lively, full of energy and a pleasure to be around.
What a quality tour it was! Our guide, Nic, has an outstanding knowledge of her subject together with an excellent, friendly and professional manner. Have been on a few London walking tours in the past and the reputable ones are very good BUT THIS ONE WAS THE VERY BEST BY LONG WAY! (In my view)
Booking dates subject to availability. Reserve your date now to avoid disappointment.
