Live Like a Local in New York


LOCALIKE New York launches as the city’s first personalised travel service to allow visitors to ‘live like a local’. With New York attracting more than 60 million tourists each year, this innovative new service replaces biased reviews, recommendations and time-consuming web research with efficient, personal itineraries created with tried and tested insider knowledge not found in any guidebook or online.

LOCALIKE New York is the brainchild of Manhattanite Andreas Leuzinger, after planning countless trips for his friends in the city, Andreas was inspired to launch LOCALIKE New York.

“Receiving advice from locals has always been a cherished travel resource,” outlines Leuzinger “We are able to decode the city’s DNA for visitors who may not be familiar with or want to see different side of the city. We have our finger on the pulse of the real New York City.”

With LOCALIKE New York, benefit from insider recommendations, exclusive access and opportunities to meet the people that make this city unique.

The process is simple: travellers complete a profile on LOCALIKE’s website in 15-20 minutes, highlighting their preferences and interests during their time in the city. Within five business days, LOCALIKE’s local experts will create a personalised itinerary from one to 10 days. An in-depth and comprehensive Trip Planner includes bespoke advice on the most up-to-date and off the beaten path sights, launches and events.

An itinerary may include a Japanese restaurant that doesn’t publish its phone number, a hipster coffee bar, an original New York speakeasy or a tour around a private park in Manhattan where access is only granted to the residents of the adjacent 36 buildings. LOCALIKE New York provides a rare insider’s perspective along with the practical tips needed, from opening hours and access, to what to expect and how to combine and enhance experiences in the city. All suggestions can be booked and reserved through LOCALIKE directly at no extra charge.

The alternative LOCALIKE Selection service gives visitors options to request shorter experiential itineraries designed to be inventive yet time-efficient. These Selection itineraries focus on themed topics or locations. Choose from shopping, restaurants and rooftop bars, the arts and cultural events and night life to suit all tastes and budgets.

LOCALIKE New York Personal itineraries starts at $79 (approximately £59) for one day. A LOCALIKE Selection itinerary costs $49 (approximately £36).
