    City Unscripted - the ultimate private tour experience

    Our mission is to enrich every city tour and experience by seamlessly connecting independent travelers with the most extraordinary, knowledgeable and passionate local guides imaginable.

    And unlike other providers, City Unscripted individually chooses each local to deliver the most unique and most memorable city experiences in the world.

    We believe

    • That there is an independent traveler in all of us.
    • That only passionate, knowledgeable locals can unlock the true magic of a city.
    • That an authentic city experience can only be achieved with a friend who lives there.
    • That passion and personal connection are more powerful than knowledge and presentation.
    • That the curious traveler is the only real traveler.
    • That curiosity is where exploration begins.

    Who we are for

    • We exist for independent travelers who crave authentic travel.

    Our Values

    • Authenticity: honesty and originality are fundamental to both our choice of local guides and to our team.
    • Spontaneity: experiences are about every moment and they should not be limited by a pre-determined script.
    • Curiosity: travel is about exploring the wonderful differences in people and places around the world.
    • Connection & friendship: we think the best, most memorable experiences always involve passionate, likable people.
    • Individuality: everyone is different, just like every experience should be.

    Quite simply we aim to find and seamlessly match the most local guides with like-minded customers to deliver the most unique, personalized and memorable experiences possible.
