WithLocals is one of the largest networks of local guides around the globe. Its goal is to help travelers find authentic experiences as hosted by locals in cities worldwide.

Here are 5 ways WithLocals can help you have a better trip:

Book Your Own Private Tour with a Local Expert

In many locations around the world, WithLocals offers expert local guides at top tours, attractions and destinations. You can book your own private tour with a guide or join a small group tour.

In Rome, for example, we used WithLocals to book a private tour of the Colosseum with a guide from WithLocals. Seeing a location through the eyes of an expert local makes all the difference — and it was fun to tour the Colosseum with just our own family group.

We booked a private tour with Carlo, a historian and Rome native. His insight and expertise (he is an archeologist) made the tour one we will always remember.

So if you’re planning a trip, head to WithLocals to find the guided tour for you.

Learn About hidden gems

Another great way to use WithLocals is to learn about hidden gems that you may not have found on your own while exploring the city.

WithLocals guides know all of the best places to visit and some of the best things to do in their city. They can help you discover the best museums, parks, bars and even hidden concerts or events that you wouldn’t have found out about otherwise.

Discover what’s worth your time and money

One of the biggest benefits of WithLocals on your travels is the chance to learn about what is worth your time and money. Tours are curated by location, and they offer a variety of experiences for every personality type.

Network with locals for better travel experiences

Another great way to use WithLocals is to network with locals to build better travel experiences. A WithLocals guide can help you find activities, events and meet-ups where you can meet other travelers like you staying in the city.

When you network with other travelers, you can find out about the best parts of your city that aren’t necessarily in guidebooks. This will give you a completely new perspective on the city and its attractions.

Find out which neighbourhoods to stay in

The best way to experience a city like a local is to stay in the neighbourhood where locals live. You’ll be able to experience daily life and have a better idea of the things to do in your neighbourhood. WithLocals guides live in almost every neighbourhood in their city and can advise on the best spots.

They can help you find the best neighbourhoods to stay in based on your interests and budgets. This is a great way to immerse yourself in the culture and daily life of a city.
