Whether you’re visiting a city for the first time or the hundredth time, planning what to see and do can sometimes feel like a huge challenge. Which neighborhoods do you want to explore? How can you see the top attractions without falling into the tourist traps? Where can you find the best vintage market or artisan roasted coffee? That’s where CityUnscripted comes in.
CityUnscripted is a personalized travel service offering immersive city experiences designed to help you discover the best of the city. Not totally sure what this means?
They connect travelers who want to be discoverers not tourists with locals in the know. This helps you unlock not only the iconic sights, but off-the-beaten path spots so that you can create your own authentic experience. Through an insider community of over 500 Locals in cities around the world, you can be shown around by a like-minded local host who knows the city intimately and shares your interests.
They think the best city breaks are often those visiting friends or family who know both you and their city inside out, meaning they can give advice and show you places they know you’ll love! It was from this belief that CityUnscripted was born. Each local is passionate about sharing their city and helping travelers discover the best of what’s on offer, whether it’s the iconic attractions or more secret spots that only Locals could share with you!
You’ll meet a Local who you can connect with through shared interests and backgrounds. In this way you can really get to the heart and soul of a city; seeing only things that inspire you.
Maybe it’s your first time in Barcelona, so naturally you want to see La Sagrada Familia, but you don’t want to follow that by eating some very sorry looking tapas that comes with a large tourist price tag!
Instead, their locals can show you where the most authentic tapas bars are just around the corner from Gaudí’s masterpiece; so you can sip vermouth, munch your way through the most delicious Iberian tapas and discover the true Catalan flavors as you (tapas) bar hop along the cobbled streets!
What about on a city break in Paris? You want to meander along the romantic, winding streets of Montmartre before you check out the view of the city from the Sacré-Cœur, but you don’t know how to choose from the hundreds of bistros! Quelle horreur!
Don’t panic, their locals can let you in on the secrets of where serves up the best French onion soup or steak frites. Or maybe you’d like to know where the best independent boutiques are, you know, the ones where the best dressed locals do their shopping.
From quirky markets where you can uncover vintage gems to luxury perfume boutiques creating bespoke scents, they can share the most loved local places to shop to have you channeling that Parisian chic in no time!
So whatever your scene, whether you’re passionate about art, music, fashion, history or photography, there’s a local who shares your interests and is waiting to help you unlock the city authentically! They know you want to discover the famous sights as well as the off the beaten path, so why not get the best of both worlds?
