insight into the hidden gems of each city to travellers and locals alike

It all started
with a game.

Gabriella and Constantinos, the two co-founders of Like Locals, had a passion for exploring new cities, but they had a strong dislike for the traditional guided tours. After a bad experience, they decided to explore their next destination in a new way and to make a competition out of it. They put together a game for their friends to guide them in their next location, leading them to hidden places around the city and asking them quirky trivia questions. The game was on. And Like Locals was born.


”Even as a local, it is hard to constantly find and decide on new things to do. This app will put several cool locations together in a walk, and all within a short distance from each other. It’s great and much better than doing all the research on my own!”


”I hate researching a place, but I'm usually the one who has to find out things to do, because of my lazy friends. Not anymore, all I had to do was ask what they were interested in doing, was shown a selection of footprints created by locals. They were so personalized it seemed they were created for us.”


”I have been living in London for three years and thought I'd seen everything. However, after using this app I was amazed by how many cool places I'd never seen before. I will be using it when I travel later this year.”


”I'm tired of being bombarded with information about a place. The app makes learning about city fun. Instead of just directing you to places, it challenges you to look deeper into your surroundings through the unique quiz feature.”


”This is the only alternative to the boring, expensive and inconvenient local tour guides. The app helped me to discover so many hidden gems in Barcelona, but on my own terms.”


”Wow. I didn't realize that the inventor of the Rubix cube was from Budapest.”
