Like Berlin, Vienna has tours led by refugees. Be aware that these tours are in German only. The organization also arranges tours led by homeless people, for which you can book an English-speaking guide.
In Amsterdam you can take a canal boat ride with tour guides from Somalia, Syria, Eritrea, Egypt and the Netherlands. The boats themselves have previously been used to transport refugees across the Mediterranean.
This tour takes you right through the Al Am’ari refugee camp in Palestine. The ticket price also includes a cup of tea with a family.
People from all over the world have been drawn to come and live in Sao Paolo. Here, refugees explain what exactly drew them to the city.
In Glasgow, women with a refugee background provide city tours. Tickets are available on a very sporadic basis. Keep an eye on the website or e-mail a booking request.
