From humble beginnings in a small student room to becoming the industry leader, a lot has changed at GetYourGuide. What hasn’t is our commitment to creating amazing experiences and ensuring that you love where you’re going.
Opening the world to everyone is at the heart of GetYourGuide. Founded by classmates Johannes, Tao, Martin, and Tobias in 2009, a travel mix-up sparked a revolutionary approach to tourism. When Johannes landed a day early in Beijing, he spent his time wandering the streets, not knowing where to go or what to do. It wasn’t until Tao arrived on the scene to act as a local guide that the duo was able to fully experience their destination.
Back in Zurich, with a defined vision for the future, our founders decided to change the world of travel. The result? A platform that gathers the best activities across the globe,all in one place.
At GetYourGuide, we’re on a journey to share incredible experiences with travelers around the world. Whether it’s seeing Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower or cage diving with sharks in Cape Town, we’ve got something for everyone.
What it all comes down to isn’t our extensive selection of activities or even thousands of five-star reviews. What makes GetYourGuide so incredible is something more — it’s the memories our customers take with them long after they’ve returned home.
GetYourGuide is the place to book the best experiences in destinations across the globe. Since 2009, we’ve made it easy for millions of travelers to find unique and unmissable things to do wherever their travels take them. Backed by leading venture capital investors, GetYourGuide has raised $170 million in funding to date and has over 400 employees spread across 14 offices worldwide.
