What Are Airbnb Experiences?

what are airbnb experiences

Airbnb Experiences are one-of-a-kind activities designed and hosted by locals. Unlike a typical tour or workshop, experiences go beyond the activities themselves. They offer a deep-dive into the local host’s world through their passion. Hosts offer their guests special knowledge, unique skills, and inside access to local places and communities that guests couldn’t find on their own, creating lasting connections and treasured memories.

Some of the most successful experiences offer a unique take on an activity or locale that is special to the host’s city.

New customers who book an Airbnb Experience receive £9 off their first booking. Register on Airbnb and receive £9 off your first booking of £36 or more. That’s a saving of up to 25% off an Airbnb Experience.

What sets an Airbnb Experience apart?

Experiences tell the story of the host’s unique perspective and passion, whether it’s their love of street food, sewing, or the history of their neighborhood.

Airbnb experiences include these qualities:

  • Guests receive insider knowledge from their hosts and have behind-the-scenes access to people, places, and activities that guests couldn’t typically find on their own.
  • The experience has personal meaning to the guest and conveys a unique point of view. Experiences tell the host’s story and immerse guests in their world.
  • Guests can engage in the activities of the experience, not just passively observe them. Hosts provide opportunities for guests to meaningfully interact together as a group.
