Want to Travel Like a Local? Try London’s CityUnscripted

By: Tom Malone

When we visit a new city, we want to experience the culture and vibe of that city like a local. Ideally, we have a local contact in the city that can take us around and avoid hoards of tour groups. But, what if you don’t know a local?

Try a new group called CityUnscripted. Their main goal: be a discoverer, not a tourist.

This un-touristy tour company allows travelers to contact an actual local who will provide incredible access to the hidden parts of the city. Use their online TripPlanner, which gives extensive filtering and personalization, mapping, detailed venue information, transport, and booking.

Then, connect with someone from their network of more than 70 locals (all bright, knowledgeable, and registered) whom the company has met and vetted. These locals offer fluency in over 19 languages.

These locals actually give the tours themselves. Private tours are authentic and immersive. These types of tours are much more human and spontaneous than a normal tour because the can be completely personalized.

CityUnscripted was started by a group of British people working abroad who wanted to leave their lives of economic success and pursue a more worthy cause that brought joy and purpose to people’s lives. Now, the adventurers of the company give travelers authentic experiences of London and its surrounding areas. Though their revolutionary idea seems confined to London for now, don’t worry - they’re setting their sights on expansion. They aim to bring this concept to the rest of the world.

So, when planning your next trip to England, be sure to check out CityUnscripted so that you can explore like a local.
