About

Imagine you get to know a city through the eyes of a friend who lives there. A friend who knows what you love – who knows where to go and what to do so you get to experience what you really want.

This way you see the city that's unlike the picture postcard patter of the tourist guide. It's not the usual, not the expected, not the scripted tour. It's unusual, unexpected, Unscripted. Unique and unforgettably made to your wishes.

You become a discoverer not a tourist. Guided by a local friend not the global guidebook. Together we home in on your wishes so you discover the things you really want to do and go to the places you really want to go.

With a friend in the city, the city becomes your friend.

Nick Whitfield

Nick Whitfield

Founder & CEO

I enjoy travel of all kinds but particularly love city trips. I felt that my usual experience could be massively improved by getting closer to the city through a local in the know. Going with the flow - the ebb and flow of a city at its living, vibrant best. We want to replicate the best kind of experience, the one you have with a friend who knows you and the city really well.
