How it Works

If you’ve ever had a friend show you around town, you’ve experienced the essence of our vision: to explore the world through the eyes of a local. Here, you can connect with local guides from around the globe. But, these are not professional guides that repeat the same speech multiple times a day, run structured group tours, or charge a fee for their service. Instead, they’re locals that help you navigate through a new place in a way that is unique and personal. A tour can involve sightseeing, going to a bar, a volcano, a museum, a beach, and everything in between. It can span from a couple of hours to a couple of days. It’s all up to you and your guide! And, don’t forget, it’s a free tour! All we ask is that you give back a little of your time by serving as a guide to those who visit your own town or city.

We’re newly launched and we’re working hard to gather worldwide contacts for you! Please help us spread the word by sharing!

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

" When I read travel guides of my own city, I can never find the places that I count as my favorites. For those spots that are listed as popular destinations, as a local, I definitely can suggest the best time and angle to experience them. The truth is the majority of must-visit authentic restaurants and bars are usually too small or out-of-the-way to be listed. Many unique alleys and parks have never made it to the guidebooks. Other places are so flooded with tourists, that you will never savor the taste of the city among them. I guess the same applies to your town/city/country. The concept of this website is very appealing to me. Simple and easy: guide and be guided. Travel and meet people. For free. There is no better way to learn about the places you visit, than from the people that live and breathe the culture. Who better than a local knows the best hours to visit attractions, when prices are best, how to avoid rush hour, which places you can or should skip, and any number of tactics and tricks that will help you get the most out of travel to a heavily visited or exotic location. Even if you have visited a city countless times, a guide with a heap of local knowledge will help you rediscover the city all over again. I would love to show you my city's hidden gems in exchange for the secrets of yours. "

" My love for traveling and meeting new people is what got me excited about this website. I usually tend to find myself mingling with locals from different countries; seeing the city through their eyes. So, when I found out about barefoot globetrot it was a match made in heaven. The service is amazing and makes the process of matching locals to travelers seamless and easily accessible. I would highly recommend this site to anyone who wants to travel and make authentic connections. "
