Homeless Tour Guides Offer Visitors New Perspective In Barcelona
The Spanish city says it's aiming to improve the lives of the unemployed and give tourists a unique perspective on the city by offering some of Barcelona's 3,000 homeless people the chance to guide travelers on the Hidden City Tours walk. The tour will provide visitors with a historic look at the city and hopes to open their eyes to the "social reality" of the region.
