About GetYourGuide

Meet the Team

GetYourGuide is the premier site to book experiences across the globe. Since 2009, we’ve gained the trust of millions of travellers and established ourselves as the authority in unique and unmissable things to do. With 60,000 thousand activities and attractions worldwide and a commitment to the highest quality, we constantly evaluate and improve our selection to ensure a standard of excellence. 

We show travellers the best of their destination: whether it’s skipping the line to the top of the Eiffel Tower, taking a traditional cooking class in Rome, or discovering Amsterdam by bike. 

With GetYourGuide Originals, we’ve created one-of-a-kind experiences in special locations worldwide that don’t just scratch the surface — they dive right in. Together with top-rated local partners and 24/7 customer service, we guarantee that everything from booking to day-of details is easy, fun, and most importantly: incredible.

Meet the Team

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 were 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.

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.
