Reality Tours & Travel, in partnership with researchers and tourism organisations from around the world, would like to start a network of slum tour operators. The purpose of the network is to share best practices, discuss the challenges slum tour operators face and to help each other problem solve these challenges. The ultimate goal is to ensure slum tour operators maximize the positive impact on the community and their guests while operating the tours as responsibly as possible. Our hope is that by pooling our collective knowledge and experience we can achieve this goal.

We will initially mobilize online but we plan to eventually receive funding for a conference that would gather together operators, researchers and NGOs from around the world. The first step is compiling a list of operators and other groups that may be interested in this project. Your help is greatly appreciated, thank you.
