Find a host in your destination

Our hosts are often people with full-time jobs, working with City Unscripted part-time to meet new people, explore new places and share their passion for their city. They love getting to see new points of view, meeting people from different places and cultures - it's not a one-way experience or a lecture it’s a genuine passion
