Our Story

LocalBini started out as a project in 2015 intended to bring travellers in touch with locals in the city they were visiting. The concept of LocalBini was born with the realisation that, above all, the people you meet are what you remember the most. They are the ones who can turn your trip into a memorable experience.
This culminated to the launch of the authentic sharing economy community platform, LocalBini, in the spring of 2017.
Nowadays, LocalBini stands as the leading community platform for travel and cultural experiences made in Europe.

Our Purpose

We are an international team based in Switzerland, working together to foster an international community wherein people get together to share their passions and their stories, and have a memorable time together. We provide authentic experiences in cities across Europe, suitable for everyone from travellers, to expats, to locals.
For us, human interaction lies at the heart of a memorable experience, which is why we created a platform that encourages everyone to embrace our philosophy..
