ESCAPE EXTRA

Locals on tap

There’s no excuse not to see a city just like a local even if it doesn’t have

a free Greeter program like we have in Brisbane. Day tour specialists

Urban Adventures (a division of Intrepid Travel) has launched Locals on

Tap, a program of meetups in 50 cities around the world (so far) which

puts travellers in touch with local tour guides for a one-to-two hour walk

through the city’s heart followed by a catch up at a local café or bar for a

casual Q&A about everything you want to know from navigating public

transport to best eats, even underground concerts or chic shop openings.

Urban Adventures already hosts more than 140,000 travellers on day

tours each year in 154 cities in 91 countries and so its local guides are

experts in their field. For now there are 50 cities on the Locals on Tap

list – from Cairns to Copenhagen, Marrakech to Moscow, Bangkok to

Berlin and beyond and Urban Adventures is giving away 100,000 Locals

on Tap tours until December.
