What we do
Spotted by Locals (founded in 2008) is a publisher of city guides for 67 cities. Each city blog and 100% offline mobile app for iPhone and Android is created by hand-picked local writers and photographers.
Our Spotters live in the city they write about, speak the local language, write only about their favorite spots and keep their tips up-to-date.
We strongly believe many of the world’s problems are caused by people from different cultures not understanding each other. We aim to increase intercultural understanding, by allowing travelers to see a destination from a local’s perspective.
We love speaking about this.
Our community of Spotters
Every Spotter is handpicked by Sanne and Bart, who lead a nomadic life to meet each of the 390 city-loving locals at their favorite spots around the world. Spotters meet each other regularly, for example at the bi-yearly Spotters weekend.
