Invisible Cities - Paul

Paul is Invisible Cities's first tour guide to offer tours on Heygo. An Edinburgh local himself, he is passionate about making people discover his city in a unique way. He is also a mentor to other local guides helping people who have experienced homelessness become walking tour guides of their own city. Invisible Cities is a multi-award-winning social enterprise that trains people who have been affected by homelessness to become walking tour guides of their own city. With walking tours in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester and York, they give people a voice and opportunities to thrive within the tourism sector. Each of their guides are passionate about their city and want the world to discover all the gems and unknown stories that make them so special. The not for profit supports people with training, skill development but also access to wider professional and educational opportunities and organises events in their local communities to support the most disadvantaged people. Paul, is one of Invisible Cities' guides based in Edinburgh.

Went to the Botanical Gardens in 2015, whilst in Edinburgh. It was great to revisit and see how things had changed.
