Like Locals is a travel media startup on a mission to inspire and empower curious explorers to uncover each city’s unique culture. We do this by blending invaluable community-driven local insights, immersive storytelling with innovative tech.
Our in-house editorial team and network of local insiders collaborate to create location-based content, which we currently deliver through our app and online channels. With a new functional online platform coming very soon.
Available for free on iOS and Android devices, the Like Locals app offers self-guided city trails called footprints, and insights into the best local hotspots. From quirky bars, rustic restaurants to unusual sculptures and historical buildings. Explorers can personalise the platform to match their needs through our intuitive recommendation engine and other in-app features.
Currently live in Budapest, London, Barcelona and Athens, with new cities expected to come by Spring 2020. We are also looking for content creators and local ambassadors to join our mission to break cultural boundaries and connect people.
