What you'll do
Wander through a specific neighbourhood that you’d love to visit or explore the city centre with a Local Host who knows the area inside out and is passionate about sharing only the best spots that they know you'll love.
Visit the highlights of the area - whether you want to see the most iconic tourist attractions or discover off the beaten path neighbourhoods full of hidden local spots, your local will customise the experience just for you!
Stop for a quick snack or coffee break at one of your local’s favourite cafés or street food markets, a hand-picked place that suits your preferences, budget and dietary requirements.
Stop by any shops, galleries or places of interest that you stumble across along your bespoke route, get insider insights to the places you’ve planned to see and discover a few hidden local spots.
Your Local host will also advise you on the best way to spend the rest of your trip, helping you to discover other areas of London that you will love.
What to expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personalities and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you.
Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.
Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.
How this benefits you
With a Local by your side, you’ll be able to go beyond the superficial and connect with London and its people, getting to know what truly makes the city unique.
Get relevant advice to help you save time and money during the rest of your trip; using local insight you’ll be able to get around, skip tourist pitfalls and experience life like a local.
See the main attractions with the benefit of local knowledge like the best times to avoid the crowds, but also explore off-the-beaten path areas where the locals really live.
Our Local Hosts can all speak English, but many also speak Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi, Russian, Indonesian, Malay, Arabic and many other languages so they can connect with you culturally as well as with your personality.
