Our hosts make us who we are. Meet people from all over the world, explore more
of your own city and get paid for it.

Be unscripted

You have a chance to build your own experience, you can
research and learn new things, talk about your own
experiences in your city and explore new parts of the city

Our experience is a conversation – listening, learning and
adapting. You should be learning new things along the
way as much as your guest.

Be real

We don’t want you to wear a uniform – we want you to
be you.

You’ll be booked for your personality and interests – you
have your own profile you help shape and we recommend
our hosts are as honest as possible.

Play to your strengths

We take great care to match you with the right people so
you won’t have to pretend to be an expert on something
new to you.

Why our hosts, host

host review #1

“I love being a tourist in my own city! It’s fun to actually “see” your own city instead of just passively living in it. I also love to meet new people and share what I can with them. I regularly help random people if they look like they need help. I thought this was the perfect way to combine these two loves.”

Dania, English Teacher, Tokyo

“As a City Unscripted host, ‘work’ means being a part of someone’s happiest holiday memories.”

Geoffrey, Marketing Executive, Hong Kong

host review #3

“NYC is constantly evolving with creative energy, new things to see and do. I love sharing my finds in this great metropolis with like-minded people. I enjoy meeting new people, exploring the city, and discovering new neighborhoods."
