Company description

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 a hand-picked community of local writers and photographers.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.

Our vision

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.
