Find, compare, and book sightseeing tours, attractions, excursions, things to do and fun activities from around the world.

GetYourGuide is a booking platform for tours, attractions and activities. Customers can search and book travel experiences in destinations around the world ranging from bus sightseeing tours in London to shark-diving in Cape Town.

GetYourGuide acts as a marketplace where professional suppliers can upload and manage their products using a content management system, and receive bookings and payments via a booking engine. Competition among suppliers is allowed and encouraged. GetYourGuide products can be booked on the website or through a variety of distribution partners.

Founded in January 2008 as a side project in college, the company was incorporated in 2009 with the first version of going online in October 2009. GetYourGuide is a spinoff of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich) and has offices in Zurich, Berlin and Las Vegas.

Recently, GetYourGuide has closed a $14 million Series A funding round, with investment from Spark Capitaland Highland Capital Partners Europe, the newly opened European arm of Highland Capital Partners. Earlier this year GetYourGuide snagged a $2 million seed investment, and back in 2009 raised $500,000 pre-seed – taking its total funding to date to $16.5 million.
