    Response from AnnaK17201, General Manager at A half day in Dublin with a local: private & personalized
    Responded Aug 11, 2019
    Dear Zehra, I am so sorry to hear that your City Unscripted experience in Dublin was a disappointment. We appreciate that you got in touch with us straight after the experience and gave the team a chance to solve any problems. This way we can make sure that similar situations won’t occur in the future. After your email we got in touch with your host for further information. The host told us that they planned the experience according to what you had and hadn’t already seen in the city. Having already toured the city the day before our experience, you might have already seen the places our host was planning on showing. The introductory email you received from the host prior to the experience could have been more detailed and clear, and this would have allowed the host to manage your expectations for the experience and Dublin as a city better. With this being said, I would like to clarify that here in City Unscripted we don’t have “tour guides” but rather friendly and knowledgeable locals who know their city by heart. I am sorry if there was any confusion regarding this. The diversity of our hosts across across all of our cities is one of the things we pride ourselves on the most. These “hosts” can take you off-the-beaten-path and give you an insider’s view of the city. Hopefully with the refund you received you’ll be willing to give us another chance in any of our 40+ cities. We would love to make this up to you! Best regards, Sonja Mursula Customer Happiness Manager City Unscripted
