No algorithms. No fake reviews. Just the absolute favorite spots of real locals in 80+ cities. Each 100% offline city guide costs a few $/€/£, with free updates forever.
1. UP TO DATE TIPS BY REAL LOCALS
We take "local" and "up to date" very seriously. Our Spotters live in the city they write about, speak the local language and write only about their favorite spots. Spotters love promoting quirky and locally owned spots and keep their tips up to date. Founders Sanne & Bart meet all Spotters in person since our launch in 2008.
Our community of Spotters (all volunteers) is amazing - there are many real life meetings. Check our website to learn more, or to join us!
2. OFFLINE, FASTER & BETTER THAN OUR WEBSITE
Our app works 100% offline. You can turn wifi & data off and enjoy a break from social media & the internet while you use our app!
On our detailed maps you can see which spots are near you and navigate there (offline). You can bookmark your favorites, and add a pin for any address to the map (like your hotel maybe?).
Whenever it's convenient for you to go online, you can choose to download updates for current spots and the latest newest discoveries in a city.
3. HELP MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE
We believe cultural misunderstandings are the source of most conflicts in the world. We hope to create a little change by encouraging travelers to experience cities from a local's perspective and learn about different cultures.
We are increasingly worried about overtourism. Since 2018 we have only expanded to cities that need MORE tourism and where tourist dollars can have a strong positive impact for local entrepreneurs. We strongly encourage you to browse through our list of cities and choose a city you haven't considered yet :).
4. YES, THIS IS A PAID APP (WHY?)
Most apps make money by collecting and selling information about you. We do not - to us you are anonymous. We charge a few $/€/£ for a faster, 100% offline experience and other features our (free) website doesn't have.
By purchasing a city guide you'll make it possible for us to continue our mission and expand to new cities where we can make a difference. Thanks so much for your support!

Great tips, iPhone X adjustment missing :-(
The content is nice and helpful, but the app itself could be a bit more snappier and faster. The iPhone X adjustment are missing as well.
Thanks Wiesson1 for taking the time to review. It's great to hear you like our locals' tips - that's most important for us. We're currently working on a new release. iPhone X adjustment is also planned for near future - it's quite a lot of work unfortunately... Thanks again, Bart - co-founder
Ich war immer auf der Suche nach ‚echten‘ Insider Tipps. Hier hat man eine ganze Stadt voll. Ich kann die schlechten Bewertungen überhaupt nicht verstehen. Eine Stadt kostet nur die Hälfte eines Buch-Stadtführers und ich hab schon so geniale Ecken dadurch gefunden - selbst in meiner Stadt, an denen ich schon hundertmal vorbei gekommen bin und mir das nie aufgefallen war.
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.
