search cancel – Tours By Local Guides

GuidedByALocal.comThis is a new service for travelers. Through this site, they will be able to hire the services of locals that are willing to act as their guides, and show them the city in question like only someone who has spent all his life there could.


The site offers an interactive map for looking these guides up, and it is also possible to choose the continent, the country and the city using a series of drop down menus. Currently, guides in over 100 different cities the world over can be contacted using this site.

The profile of each guide comes with information like his age, and his favorite interests and activities. This is important, because if you are keen on a specific sport (say, soccer) and you want the guide to show you all the different stadiums that there are in the city you are heading to, then you will need him to be a fan of the sport. Well, the way everything is structured you will be aware of such a fact within seconds of reading his profile. In Their Own Words
