How it works for travelers

Withlocals is the peer-to-peer marketplace where local people offer experiences and their skills to travelers. Our mission is to connect people and cultures through food and unique experiences.

Our experiences fall into two categories:

  • Food Experiences
  • Things To Do

Simply type a location and date into the search engine to discover a list of locals offering a huge variety of experiences from private dinners in the family home to a Jewish Food tour in Singapore and tea picking on a Sri Lanka hill plantation.

Book a Private Experience

Interested in having a cozy, personal experience with your host and travel buddies? Go for a private experience! Book a private home dinner, tour or activity and get introduced to a new culture by meeting a local. After you booked, hosts have 48h to confirm their availability.

Book an Event

Fancy having some social time over delicious food? Go for a dinner party and meet other great guests at the dinner table! Book a dinner party for the date the host has put up as available and receive instant confirmation of your booking.

Trust and safety

It goes without saying that whether you’re a host or a guest you want reassurances about the safety and quality of the experience. This is just as important to us too, which is why we have a rigorous system in place to ensure quality, this includes:

  • A fully comprehensive, authentic review system.
  • A verified supplier system. We only promote hosts with whom we’ve had personal contact and once we have personally guaranteed the quality of the experience.
  • We rely on the reviews and the sense of community built on the site to help maintain the quality of the experiences.
  • We guarantee your experience and will fully refund your money if you are less than 100% satisfied.

Who gets paid and how?

Payment is made quickly and easily through the Withlocals website via Paypal, credit card or a local payment method. You only pay for a confirmed booking. If you’re booking an event or personalized offer, your booking is instantly confirmed. 

When you request to book a private experience, Withlocals only charges you when the booking is confirmed by the host.
Let's create you some unforgettable memories with a local host!
