We believe intercultural misunderstanding to be the root of most conflicts in the world. We are sad about "Starbucksification" and overtourism. We hope to create a little change by encouraging travellers to experience cities from a local's perspective and learn about their culture.

Our Spotters live in the city they write about, speak the local language, write only about their favorite spots. Spotters love promoting quirky and locally owned spots and keep their tips up-to-date. Co-founders Sanne & Bart meet all Spotters in person.

Version 6.5

You probably won't notice the difference, but we resolved a few very minor bugs and upgraded design a little bit! The app is now even more stable and fast.

If you enjoy our volunteer locals' tips, they'd really love it if you can leave a review. If you have any feedback, please contact co-founder Bart directly via bart@spottedbylocals.com

Nach Update alle Favoriten weg!

In allen bezahlten (!) Städten sind nach dem letzten Update die angelegten Favoriten verschwunden.

Thank you for being a user and for your comment. Indeed our apps are paid - for Euro 4 you will have new up to date tips "for life". We think this is a pretty good deal if you compare it to traditional city guidebooks. As to your very understandable and good point of criticism: because we want users to be 100% anonymous, we do not let users log in or save any user data on our servers. Unfortunately that means your favorites are removed if you reinstall your app... We are looking for an alternative! Do you really find our locals' tips worth only 1 star :'( ? If you would consider this, that would be really wonderful! Reviews are super important for us, as we have no promotion budget.

Great app for traveling off the beaten track

Great app if you’re looking for real insider tips on your city trips! You can pick between several categories like cafes, restaurants, art and culture or relaxing spots and you really find yourself at real treasures mainly locals visit, so goodbye to awful tourist traps...plus you can use it offline including maps and a great “nearby” option. And I love that you can add your own spots! This way you can save them for your next trip. I’d definitely recommend the app!

The Only Guide I Use

I absolutely love spotted by locals. I’ve purchased this app for more than one city and it never let me down. No-BS, a lot of insider info, my kind of travelling.
