Ciao! I am Francesca and Italian teacher who lives in Manchester. I moved here in 2015 but I've been dreaming about moving to this amazing city for a long time! Why? Because Manchester has everything you need, if you know where to look for..football and music above all, but also museums, great walks and restaurants and its University and culture. I will bring you around the city while listening to some good Mancunian tunes to discover its hidden gems and will give you tips for the best restaurants in town.

Hi, I’m Roy and a very proud resident and lover of my exciting, vibrant and cosmopolitan City of Manchester. I've lived in Manchester for 64 years and find that my city, Manchester, is one of the most exciting cities in the world. Manchester has been the founding bedrock of the industrial revolution and innovation and has many exciting museums exhibiting this. More recently Manchester has been the inspiration for some of the most creative musical minds in the world from the Hollies; Simply Red and Oasis. What I love about Manchester is that it constantly surprises me with new things to see and experience whether that is culture, the arts, the fabulous architecture, sport or music. All my acquaintances from all over the world are surprised by the diversity of interests when they visit Manchester. Manchester has many hidden gems that they just fall in love with in this vibrant and exciting modern city. If you make a booking with me I can take you on wonderfully relaxing walking exploration of this wonderful city, we can find many interesting things to do in the ‘town centre’ such as the vibrant Northern Quarter, with its rich history and which also comes alive at night. You may want to know about the alternative modern areas such as Spinningfields, well known for exciting places to relax and dine. There is also the famous ‘Village’ and historic Castlefield all within easy walking distance. So, if you want to discover one of Manchester’s coolest neighbourhoods that has something for everyone then I'm your Local!

I´ve always dreamed about having great adventures and enjoy the most of my life and I´m happy to say that everyday brings me unique experiences that I want to share with as many people as possible. I was Born and Bread in Brazil but I´m also Spanish and I´ve been living in different countries for a while now. The places I've seen and the areas where I worked helped me learn and always seek for more. I love sharing experiences and being helpful with others. Lately I´ve been living in Manchester and I´m in love with this City and all its history and tales that will amaze you and make you wish you had spent more time here.

I am a quiet and peaceful person, I love interacting with different people and cultures. My main passion is mushroom hunting and I consider myself and expert for many years. I also love cooking, especially for other people. In my free time i enjoy going to pubs and socialising as well as playing the guitar. I make a great CityUnscripted Local because I enjoy showing other people the city and make them feel comfortable, teaching them interesting things about the city, and showing them my favourite not-so-touristy places.

I am very friendly and approachable, I have a great deal of knowledge about cool places to go in Greater Manchester ( that means Manchester + the surrounding towns and villages). I love this city and I have done since I came here 13 years ago! I find it to be an exciting and fun place to live, with great job opportunities. I am involved in the lively couchsurfing community and through CAMRA, the real ale scene. The new brew scene is very trendy at the moment, there is a renaissance of beer happening at this time. I also like to visit rural areas, canal walks, beauty art galleries, ancient monuments, thumping rock concerts, wild parties, sumptuous restaurants and calm english parks.
