The Tourism profiling and training methodology report covers alternative forms of city tours as antidotes to mass tourism and cultural practices. These alternative forms of city tours are best exemplified in peripheral and experience-based practices. The practices mentioned are more sustainable, both ecologically and socio-economically, because they: preserve the assets of a destination, take place in areas which are not oversaturated with visitors, involve the local community and adapt practices to individuals with disabilities. Alternative city tours also adopt a bottom-up approach to decision-making by giving local people the opportunity to make decisions about their development. A helpful tool which can further innovate these practices is technology as it offers greater personalisation of experience, increased interactivity, and reduces entry barriers for artistic innovation. 

To read more about alternative forms of city tours and the benefits that they can bring to tourists, creators and local businesses, check out the Summary of the Report (available in EN, FR, PL, ES and GR) or read the entire Report below (available in EN only).
