The Safe Passage tour experience
Each tour lasts approximately 3 hours (plus travel time) and includes a viewing of the Guatemala City garbage dump from the city’s General Cemetery. Tours visit our Preschool, Educational Reinforcement Center, Adult Education classroom, and have the opportunity to shop at the Creamos recycled jewelry initiative. Your tour fee covers transportation cost and the service of trained Safe Passage guides.
Our community is one of extreme poverty. Visitors may see difficult scenes of violence, addiction, and animal neglect. We recommend that visitors be at least 15 years of age; children under age 15 are the responsibility of their parents. Throughout the tour, trained Safe Passage staff provide historical and cultural information relevant to our community, our programs, and our mission. We encourage you to ask questions.
