“When you're visiting a city that's not your own, you're going to need some tips for where to go, what to do, etc. Yes, you could Yelp it ... but wouldn't you rather hear it straight from a local you trust?” – Mashable
"Aiming to be 'more than a guidebook', this website and app focuses on local experiences in destinations, recommended by people living in those cities." – Forbes, “Best Travel Apps for 2015”
"Maybe you’d rather steer clear of the well-trodden sights and slip into the local scene. Localeur solicits advice from, you guessed it, locals.” – TIME, “The 10 Best Free Apps for Travel Junkies”

Ratings and Reviews
Great app with for-real local insights
I’m impressed by Localeur’s commitment to using only recommendations by people who actually live in the places they’re writing about. My current hometown is Medellín, Colombia, and even though I know quite a bit about other destinations, Localeur has (rightly, IMO) declined app content from me for anywhere but where I live. As a result, I have total confidence that when I pull up Localeur content for cities that I plan to visit, the recommendations I find will truly be a local’s take. That really sets Localeur apart and is reason #1 to check it out.
I have had some issues with the login process, but that has been for adding recommendations, not for reading what’s there. The developers seem to be on top of bugs as they are identified.
I’ll keep going back for authentically local takes on my travel destinations. Keep it up, Localeur!
When it’s great, it’s amazing
I do wish more people knew about this app and could contribute more, because when a city has a lot recommendations, you really do find activities and businesses that no other website or service will tell you about. At its worst, I enjoy using this as a supplemental app to other, bigger, less curated ones. At its best, it makes me want to revisit places to hit up all the places I never knew about.
Not a lot of information, crashes
I just downloaded this to see about finding local places for an upcoming trip and maybe even find a new favorite in my hometown. Well sometimes you open a city and it gives you information on the city that you just looked at. And sometimes it just crashes. Only a few people recommending places in each city anyways, so that’s really limited. Could be really good if they’re able to get more people to recommend places and if they fix the bugs. As it is right now.... not that useful. I think I’ll just ask the locals what they recommend when i get there.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
