Responsible tourism

A positive experience. A positive local impact.

In Our Shoes Walking Tours is a community social enterprise. The Liberties is a wonderful working class area that hosts a vibrant high-tech sector and major tourist attractions – but the changing environment has meant quite a high number of local people have no, or low, employment. In Our Shoes Walking Tours is a community-owned company employing local people which ensures all of the earnings remain here in our neighbourhood. Any profits are reinvested in the company to train more guides and provide more local employment. We’re absolutely committed to ensuring you have the very best experience and that you also have the benefit of knowing that your tour doesn’t harm the built or natural environment and, in fact, contributes to local people and the local economy.

“The most non-touristy, authentic, enjoyable walking tour I’ve ever experienced. To gain such a real, local understanding in such a short time is so rare. Unforgettable – I learned, I discovered, I’m still smiling.”
