Eating, staying, and relaxing where the locals do is the best way to have a truly memorable travel experience. If you're headed to Europe, trip4real is a new service that can connect you with locals who are happy to show you around.
trip4real's offerings are more unique than many other services that stuck to the standard museum tours or pub crawls. You can really get an idea of what life is like for the people who live where you're visiting and you can still experience the culture and sights. Most of the activities I searched through were meant for one to fifteen people, which means you can find something interesting to do even if you're travelling with a larger group.
Activities vary, and some are more worthwhile than others. For example, a tour of Museo del Prado is great, but the museum has a decent audio tour you could use instead. At the same time, there's nothing like a paella cooking class with an enthusiastic Spanish teacher. Before you book, check the reviews from previous users to get an idea of what you're in for and how much it will cost.
The service has a fairly thorough FAQ, and you can make changes to your booked activities up to 30 days and cancel for a full refund four days in advance. See if your upcoming trip destination is covered by searching their site linked below.
