Discover the city from a different perspective with Surprise city tours
Experience the Swiss cities of Bern, Basel and Zurich from a different perspective. This is an opportunity to meet people affected by poverty and homelessnesses – the experts on the street – and to hear them talk about their everyday lives.
Working in collaboration with social institutions, the Surprise Association has introduced the first “socially-conscious city tours” of this kind in Switzerland. Surprise city guides talk about their day-to-day lives and reveal places that would otherwise pass you by. As part of the tour, the guides show visitors their public living rooms or private emergency sleeping areas. The city guides share a common mission – to break down prejudices.
