Who we are

In the Sumer of 2015 a British, Berlin-based tour guide noticed an increased interest in the refugee situation among her tour groups. It was, of course, the summer when the so-called ‘refugee crisis’ was making headlines across the world. Lorna, who had already been involved in the refugee situation for a few years decided that it was not her place to talk about what was happening to refugees in Europe. The refugee situation is a humanitarian crisis that will undoubtedly be a defining aspect of this era but the stories and events that are unfolding are not being told by those who are living through it. Lorna wanted to give a platform to those who are so often talked about but rarely listened to and so she asked some friends who are living in Berlin as refugees to start doing walking tours in order to tell their stories. After just a couple of weeks, meetings and workshops, Refugee Voices Tours was born. In February 2016 a local tour guide from Copenhagen got in touch with RVT Berlin and said he wanted to offer similar tours in his city. After several Skype dates, lots of work by Jacob and the team and eventually some of the RVT Berlin team going to Copenhagen, the tours began in summer 2016,read more about them here.
