We are the leading
global marketplace
for unforgettable
travel experiences

We simplify digital travel reality.

GetYourGuide simplifies the complex world of travel experiences, enabling consumers to experience unforgettable moments of discovery and joy, while helping experience creators to grow in ways they would not have been able to on their own. Since its founding in 2009, GetYourGuide has thus fundamentally changed the travel industry as a key driver of digital transformation.

Based on innovative, data-driven technology, GetYourGuide has built the leading global marketplace for travel experiences that digitally connects supply and demand to solve the travel market's most critical problems.

Johannes Reck (CEO) & Tao Tao (COO)
Co-Founders of GetYourGuide

Everything starts with a vision

Following a student trip to Beijing during which navigating the city without a local guide proved difficult, Johannes Reck and Tao Tao were inspired to found GetYourGuide in 2009 together with their friends Martin Sieber and Tobias Rein. The founders still run the company today together with an experienced management team.

Since its founding, GetYourGuide has raised more than $883 million in funding and looks back on over a decade of triple-digit growth.

Johannes and Tao are convinced that the future of travel is more digital than ever and thrives on the rapidly growing need for lasting memories. GetYourGuide is ideally positioned to continue on its successful path and capture further market share in 2023 and beyond.
