About SHADES TOURS Vienna
SHADES TOURS organizes moving tours and activities in Vienna on socially polarizing topics. The outstanding detail about it: they are guided by the affected persons themselves and thus look behind the scenes of the city. The topics are poverty & homelessness, refuge & integration such as drugs & addiction. These are not sightseeing tours - these are tours about life. We love to educate you! If you are interested in alternative tours, then you will definitely enjoy this experience.

We had a very informative Shades Tour with Günther yesterday. We did the Drugs and Addiction tour, which my students and I thought was very excellently prepared. Günther gave the students exactly the information they wanted and in a very empathetic way found out what more they wanted to know about this topic. One very important and excellent point about this tour is, that you are outside and visit places, in our case Vienna’s 6th district, which directly have to do with the topic you book. I can only recommend taking this tour to anybody out there.
