Who are Tours By LOCALS?

Launched in 2008, Tours By LOCALS provides private tours for travellers through their carefully selected network of local tour guides, each of whom is keen to share their knowledge, experience and expertise. It’s a great way to discover places that are off the beaten track and experience what a city has to offer through the eyes of a local.

I’ve partnered with Tours By LOCALS as it’s a great fit for families who want to connect with locals who are passionate about their home city.

The Tours By LOCALS experiences are perfect for families because;

  1. The tour groups are small – perfect for one family which gives you the freedom to travel at your own pace.
  2. You can select the guide that you feel would best suit your family dynamics. To help you to choose you can read the guide’s profile, watch their video introductions and read their reviews.
  3. You can customise a tour to suit your family’s interests and the age of your children. The website allows you to liaise directly with your chosen guide to discuss your bespoke experience.
