Activities

No FOMO

What you get up to when you're away is entirely up to you, but of course you will want to explore. The best way to ensure you have an action packed holiday without missing any of the sights is with GetYourGuide, this website is like a goldmine full of the most insane things to do, ALL in one place! They cover so many destinations from city breaks to beach holidays and I have used them for years have never had to book elsewhere because something was missing. Here is a step-by-step of how I use it:

Step 1: Click/Tap the photo below

Step 2: Make sure you are viewing the activities in the correct currency, this can be changed by clicking the tab to the left of the 'Wishlist' in the top right drop-down menu. Then you are ready to search for the perfect activities! Type in your destination in the search engine in the middle containing 'Dubai, Paris...', and then input your travel dates into the 'from' and 'to' section (see above) and click check availability.

Step 3: From here you have access to all the trips you could want in you chosen destination (see below), at the best prices! You have the option to use the 'Categories' tabs down the left hand-side however I like to view every single activity to ensure I don't miss out on anything. When you have found an activity you would like to look into, click on it to be taken to more details.

Step 4: From here (see below) you can see an array of photos of the experience, view the full details and meeting point, while most importantly you can read the reviews! Once you are happy with everything select 'book now' where you will enter your details and will be one step closer to your adventure!

Step 5: You will receive an email of confirmation for your booking almost instantly, it will contain a voucher you can print or get on the app. I recommend getting the mobile voucher on the app because usually you will be able to use this upon arrival of the activity, which is more convenient and easily accessible. Ensure you keep this email in a folder specifically for your holiday, even if you download or print the voucher, just in case.

 

 

 

On a personal note: This website is without a doubt the make or break for your trip away, I have always found the activities and tours good value for money and have not faced a situation where it would have been cheaper on the day. Also, the accessibility to thousands of experiences means you are at such an advantage, GetYourGuide enables you to find tours led by knowledgable locals that you wouldn't have found from just walking around the destination. Not to mention how pleased you feel with yourself when you get to Skip-the-Queue at attractions, and the best part is that because you pay before you go, your spending money is not affected! In the worse case scenario GetYourGuide is very understanding and many tours/attractions feature a free cancellation policy with your money back, so there really is not any risk.

Click on any tour below to be taken to the GetYourGuide site, from here you can type in any destination as spoken about above!
