Tours guided by refugees (English) - Main train station

Join our outstanding 2 hour walking tour!   Was does it mean to flee from your home country? What are the reasons? What are the Austrian policies on asylum and integration? How do you start a new life in a foreign country when you had to give up your previous one? Refugees and integration are a polarized issue in our society. We believe that it is important to explain these controversial and complex issues in order to enhance understanding and empathy. And who could better explain than people who took the decision to flee their country? Important information: during this tour we will use the public transportation. Therefore you will need a valid transportation ticket.

Tours guided by Homeless: Heldenplatz (english)

This tour is guided in English   Our alternative guided walking tour!   Discover the different challenges that homeless people face and the diverse possibilities that the Viennese social system offers when people need it the most. During this two hour long tour your guide – a (former) homeless person himself – will provide you with a mix of facts and personal stories that illustrate the complexity of homelessness. Together we will walk along the thin line of poverty and wellfare. We will pass places that are related to homelessness and will make you realize the contrasts of the city.    The content is homelessness, its challenges and the solutions that the city provides. While you are learning something new, you contribute to the re-integration of the guide into a stable living and housing situation.    This is not a sightseeing tour – this is a tour about life.  It therefore is an educational tour on a socio-politic topic. Please note that the tour does not visit shelters or expose homeless people. Our guides are affected by homelessness and reject social voyeurism, thus neither other homeless people will be showcasted, nor former hideouts are shown.   You will receive the exact meeting point with a download link in the booking confirmation!    SHADES TOURS is looking forward to seeing you! This tour is guided in English ????????
