So you’ve just arrived in a new city. You step outside your hotel, take a deep breath and…then what? Wouldn’t it be great to have a friendly local to show you all their favourite spots – the little bars, hipster cafes and cool underground galleries that tourists never find? Enter Urban Adventures.

Urban Adventures are basically day tours with a difference. Instead of a big group following a tennis ball on a stick, they’re designed to be bite-sized, original, compact, and local-led. If you’ve got a day to kill, they make the perfect add-ons to a longer trip.

From a couple of hours to a full day, with 468 tours in six continents and 128 cities around the world, Urban Adventures are the folks who know what makes a destination tick.
