Get Your Guide Review

Get Your Guide is an online marketplace for booking tours, attractions, excursions, and countless other things to do on your next vacation or weekend adventure. The company partners with selected providers from all over the world. With more than 60,000 experiences, it’s easy to get lost on the website while daydreaming of “day trips from Paris” or “Florence wine tasting and wine tours.”

After you book your activity, Get Your Guide will send you a voucher via email. You can discover experiences like guided tours, water activities, day- and multi-day trips, and other sightseeing opportunities. But keep in mind that flights or visa support are not guaranteed and may only be provided as part of multi-day activities.


  • Customer reviews describe travel experiences
  • Great for European sightseeing
  • Easy-to-use website and booking interface


  • No travel packages, flights, or visa support

Get Your Guide Services

With just a few clicks, the Get Your Guide search tool allows you to filter all available activities by these criteria:

Get Your Guide Las Vegas Search
  • Price per person
  • Trip duration
  • Destination
  • Activity type
  • Suitable for (or not suitable for) guidelines
  • Traveler type
  • Star rating
  • Popular attractions in the area
  • Dates
  • Languages

For example, if you’re traveling with kids, you might opt to “skip the line” to cut down on waiting times. Or, if you’re exploring a destination outside the U.S, you might request an English-speaking tour guide. Adrenaline junkies can filter activities by daring category, and photographers can filter by “towers & viewing platforms” to find the best photo opportunities in the area.

Get Your Guide Cost and Destinations

Get Your Guide is an independent service and does not set prices for the activities or tours on the site. However, they offer a best-price guarantee to ensure you’ll never pay more than the best available price online. You can book now, and pay later: you can pay up to 72 hours before the activity starts. If you don’t pay by then, they’ll charge your card automatically.

To Book An Experience with Get Your Guide:

Get Your Guide Complaints

There’s no shortage of Get Your Guide reviews online. Trustpilot alone boasts more than 14,000 reviews with 85% positive ratings. Users praise the site for introducing them to unique experiences and allowing them to book the activity easily.

Some reviewers were disappointed with the clarity about meeting points for activities and warned that the instructions to find and join an activity aren’t always clear. However, this seems to be a fault of the tour supplier, not Get Your Guide, as the website only provides the information given to them by the supplier.

For instances where customers were unhappy with the Get Your Guide service, the company responded to most complaints within a day with instructions on who to contact to make things right.

Get Your Guide FAQs

  • Can I save search results on Get Your Guide?

    Create an account on Get Your Guide’s website to save search results related to activities of interest on your wishlist. You can always revisit your account to book an experience—even if it’s last minute.

  • How do I decide which activity is best for me?

    Get Your Guide offers tons of educational content about different destinations and activities to help you choose the best trip, such as the best times to visit, top activities in the area, and “things to know” before booking. Spend time researching on the site, and use the site’s activity filters to find activities that meet your interests.

  • What is Get Your Guide’s refund policy?

    For most activities outside of the U.S., you can receive a full refund if you cancel more than 24 hours before the activity starts. Note that the activity provider’s policy will determine whether your booking is fully, partially, or non-refundable. Get Your Guide addresses any refunds related to “unhappy experiences” on a case-by-case basis.

  • What destinations are available to explore with Get Your Guide?

    Get Your Guide covers almost all the top destinations in the world. There are thousands of destinations across North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia.

  • Can you customize an activity?

    Because Get Your Guide doesn’t actually run activities, you can only book an activity as it is described on their site. That said, Get Your Guide allows you to filter your search to find suitable activities for your group. Filter by category (e.g., entry tickets, guided tour), price, languages, duration, and services (e.g., wheelchair accessibility, hotel pickup, additional health measures).


Get Your Guide is an easy, quick, and responsible way to book unforgettable local and international experiences. Because it offers unique activities and clearly defined booking processes, you can feel comfortable booking and managing your trips with Get Your Guide.
