Almost 9,000 guided day trips in more than 150 countries (mostly in Europe, the Caribbean and South America) and most major cities are listed on the booking and review website Users can build an itinerary for a location and book all the tours online.

Searches for the excursions can be filtered by location, region, city, dates, type of activity and more. Search results can be sorted by price, best sellers and travelers’ ratings. Each tour listing shows the itinerary, times, price and inclusions and exclusions.
