Why this job is excellent:
Viator is the world’s leading resource for researching, finding and booking tours and travel experiences worldwide.
What we do: Our staff of travel insiders has hand-selected the best things to do in more than 1,500 destinations. Working closely with trusted local tour and activity operators, Viator makes it very simple for all travelers to find exactly what they want to do, and, uncover things they didn’t even know they could do. We’ve done the homework, made all the connections, and even pulled a few strings to make sure our customers have unprecedented insider access provided by a global network of trustworthy and reliable local businesses.
And the result? Travellers have direct access to thousands of travel experiences, from basic and traditional sightseeing tours to incredibly exclusive unique finds—and everything in between. From popular double-decker bus tours to private VIP experiences, from adrenaline-pumping outdoor activities to cultural and family-friendly experiences, from shore excursions to show tickets, city passes, day trips, multi-day excursions...you name it, and we probably have it, all hand-selected by the Viator team, all available online or on your phone. That means you can book everything in advance which can help avoid sell-outs in high season and save time in-destination for exploration. Or, if you’re more of a spur-of-the-moment type (or if you are taking advantage of a few spare moments with your mobile device), Viator lets you book up to the last minute as well, with handy apps and an optimized mobile website.
