CityUnscripted Launches ‘Book a Local’ in 12 New Cities

FREE bookings available to celebrate the launch of the popular service, which is now available to ‘discoverers’ globally.

CityUnscripted, the authentic and personalised travel service offering immersive city experiences, is now launching its popular ‘Book a Local’ service in 12 new cities. To celebrate the launch, CityUnscripted is offering free bookings for the first five enquiries into each city.

The quickly expanding ‘Book a Local’ platform, which launched in London in April 2016, is now also available in Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, Rome, Bologna, Amsterdam, Berlin, Edinburgh, Manchester, Tokyo, New York and San Francisco with more cities to follow in the coming months.

CityUnscripted is offering the first five bookings of each city for free. To claim your tour:

  • Email info@cityunscripted.com stating your preferred city, time and date for a two hour ‘Book a Local’ experience
  • If you are among the first five travellers to request a booking for that destination, the CityUnscripted team will be back in touch to organise your booking
  • If positions for that city have already been filled, the team will let you know instantly

CityUnscripted connects travellers who want to be discoverers and not tourists with Locals in the know. ‘Book a Local’ – the site’s flagship product – helps visitors get away from scripted excursions by exploring their chosen city with a like-minded Local who will plan a personalised outing based on their interests. These bespoke experiences uncover the best aspects of a city and help travellers connect more deeply with the city through its people.

CityUnscripted works with a network of 500+ Locals globally, aged from 18-60+ years old, who are collectively fluent in over 25 languages. This inspiring community of Locals have a wide range of interests and backgrounds and work as Locals in their spare time because they love to meet new people and share the city they know so well.

The service is completely trustworthy, safe and secure, as each Local is individually vetted, verified, insured and trained by the CityUnscripted team. The Book a Local system allows visitors to review detailed profiles of each Local before selecting the person that matches their preferences and a date and start time. Locals can then create a personalised itinerary based on what you want to see and do or give advice / insight into their city, making the city more real and human, rather than a checklist of attractions. Bookings start from £30 an hour for 1-2 adults, children are free.

Nick Whitfield, Founder & CEO of CityUnscripted said: “Since our ‘Book a Local’ service launched in London this April, it’s been incredibly popular and we’re excited to meet this demand with the launch of 12 new cities globally. Adding these new destinations to our portfolio is a big step in our expansion and we look forward to helping people across the world branch away from conventional tours and discover the city with the help of an insider.”

Jennifer, one of CityUnscripted’s London Locals, said: “I love living and working in a city as vibrant and multi-faceted as London. CityUnscripted gives me the opportunity to share the city I love with people from across the globe and help them discover what London has to offer.”

CityUnscripted is primarily focused on its community of inspiring locals, promoting the ethos that they help travellers ‘say goodbye to tick-box tourism’ and ‘unlock the city with a like-minded Local’.

The company also offers a database of ready-made tours and an online TripPlanner service allowing visitors to create bespoke itineraries based on detailed recommendations of the best things to see and do in the city. The company is working with several leading accommodation companies and hotel brands including Underthedoormat.com, Marlin Apartments and Oasis Collections.
