HIDDEN City Tours is taking a different approach to tourism, tapping into the large population of homeless people in Spain to lead new Street Life tours. The Barcelona-based company hopes to raise public awareness about the plight of the homeless while also offering them a work opportunity and the chance to share their stories.
“The aim of the Street Life tour is how to survive 24 hours on the streets of Barcelona,” said the founder of Hidden City Tours, Lisa Grace, who estimates there are between 3,000 to 6,000 people without a permanent residence.
The tours last for just over an hour and lead tourists through the old city centre. They cost €10 to €15 and are available in English, German and Spanish.
