    City Unscripted hosting explained

    What the host

    City Unscripted matches every experience with a host capable of delivering an excellent experience for the guest. Think of them as your personal guardian to ensure the experience is exactly as you envision without issue or delay.

    Hosts are an essential part of having and delivering a great experience. Their knowledge and expertise support your vision and give you a deeper experience. They make sure the guests don’t miss the unmissable and often remove the hassle of the travel experience, such as navigating the Japanese metro or speaking to restaurant owners to get that special menu. Other notable things about hosts include;

    Ability to choose and match a Host 

    When you create your experience one of the key considerations is the type of Host that is ideal to deliver your experience. This is different from who you are. It is your chance to imagine the best type of person and the best kind of knowledge, the type of person you wished you had during your own experience. 

    Quality of Hosts

    City Unscripted will only work with the best Hosts and each Host commits to continual investment in their learning and development. 


    Host performance is monitored and reported on enabling us to make quality claims to Creators and provide peace of mind around the delivery.

    Professionals and everyone in between

    The hosts we work with are sometimes professional hosts but can also be subject matter experts, passionate fans, or enthusiasts. Our strict quality control means we are able to work with those who do this as a job as well as those who wish to host as additional income, around other work, or simply those who love to share what they know.

    Speaking the language

    Each host is required to speak English and the local language fluently. This ensures the guest experience is maintained whilst also being able to operate the experience locally.

    Living the local life

    Hosts operate in their local area. It is important that they have a deep knowledge and passion for the areas they work. Not all are native to the area but all have rich understandings.

    Experience directors

    The host's knowledge means they are able to adapt the experience as necessary, this is to suit a tailoring request by a guest or perhaps alter the order of the experience to mitigate impacts such as traffic or crowds.


    The host will manage the budget for the guest inclusions, meaning the guests will usually not have to queue themselves and the hosts are going to get them the best produce, products, or service.

    Briefed on you

    The host is briefed in advance on what they are expected to deliver on your behalf. This includes the experience detail but also information about you as a creator so they are able to review your style of delivery and content with which the guest relates.

    That extra bit

    The hosts are committed to a great experience and seek positive reviews. Their presence will be felt like a great addition and they are often the thing most remarked on once the experience concludes. Hosts are a great source of information as much as they are willing photographers to get photos of the whole group instead of one always missing out on pictures.

    After the experience, guests will wonder how they ever traveled without hosts before.
