Follow Invisible Cities' duo, Zakia and Sonny in the streets of Edinburgh and discover Scotland's capital Jewish heritage and stories of those who made it their home. The majority of tips generated from these tours will be used to create content for children and families to discover the city's Jewish heritage and have fun!
Zakia is the founder of Invisible Cities, an award-winning social enterprise that trains people who have experienced homelessness to become walking tour guides of their own city. After starting the not for profit organisation in Edinburgh with one tour, they are now present in 4 cities in the UK with plans to expand further. Zakia is from the south of France and has also been leading walking tours on social enterprise and doing business differently for the last 3 years, when her own guides put her up for it!
Zakia has been guiding since Feb 2018
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Edinburgh with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.
The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Edinburgh. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
The majority of your tip goes directly to support the guide’s hard work, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
Reserve your spot by selecting a time to book. Once done, you’ll be able to see your reservations on your Trips page and we’ll send you an email confirmation with a link to join the tour.
