Viator launches free global tours and activities apps for iPhone and iPad

Viator, Inc., the resource for nearly 9,000 tours and activities in 750 destinations in 150 countries, introduced two free apps to help travellers discover the best experiences at the best prices anytime, anywhere – whether they are planning ahead from their living room or standing in a hotel lobby looking for something nearby in the next few hours. The Viator Tours and Activities App for iPhone and the Viator Ultimate Experience GuideSM for iPad each capitalise on the native features of the devices to inspire travellers and help them find unique things to do around the world, offering more last-minute inventory than previously available and new mobile e-vouchers for paperless confirmation.

Each app provides access to Viator’s vast tour and activity portfolio, which includes a broad range of experiences for every taste, like a private, after-hours tour of the Vatican and Sistine Chapel; surfing lessons on Sydney’s Bondi Beach; a 4×4 desert safari in Dubai, a private hot-air balloon ride over Barcelona; and even a Grand Canyon helicopter wedding officiated by Elvis. All local tour operators are hand-selected and vetted for quality, value and service and are validated by more than 260,000 traveller reviews and photos. Close relationships with these local operators allows Viator to create exclusive deals and promotions, bookable in five currencies ($US, $AUS, $CAN, GBP and Euro) and backed by a low-price guarantee.

“Today’s travellers are more self-directed and less reliant on concierges and out-of-date guidebooks than in the past and our apps – like Viator.com – cater to their needs with the added flexibility to find and book tours and activities on the go anytime, anywhere,” said Ms. Barrie Seidenberg, president and CEO of Viator Inc. “Our new iPhone app helps travellers easily find the best tours and activities nearby, and make last-minute bookings directly from the device they always have at hand. Similarly, our iPad app helps to inspire travel with ever-changing content about great local experiences that fit almost any budget and can be easily booked online.”
