Alternative Tours

Alternative Tours offer bespoke 'behind the scenes' tours of the Balti Triangle, Jewellery Quarter and other areas of Birmingham, aimed at visitor groups .

Alternative Tours have been operating for ten years and all tours are personally guided by their two business partners. Anna Gibson who was Marketing Manager for the Jewellery Quarter for many years and Andy Munro who was Regeneration Director for the Quarter and was also born and bred in the Balti Triangle. Tours can be tailored for both leisure or educational purposes with satisfied customers ranging from Social Clubs and visitor groups to Universities and Schools. Typically tours include a behind the scenes look at the jewellery trade and heritage walks (Jewellery Quarter) and talks, cookery demos, shopping tours and,of course a Balti (Balti Triangle).
