The GetYourGuide Awards recognize the world’s best travel experiences. Beyond natural beauty and adrenaline-pumping adventures, the winning experiences were judged based on best-in-class excellence in customer service, uniqueness in product offering, and contribution to the local community.

The winners tell a story of ever-changing travel trends. The popularity of aerial tours and water adventures highlights social media’s influence on our choice of destinations. “More and more, we watch our friends having and sharing incredible experiences through the lens of social media, and that raises the bar on how we choose activities for our own vacations,” says Carlee Stellfox Loya, GetYourGuide’s Regional Manager for USA West, Canada West & Mexico.

This year, we also announced a new category to honor the heartbeat of the tour: The World’s Best Tour Guide. Our interviews reveal their secrets for an unforgettable tour.

See the full list of winners and the program methodology on GetYourGuide’s 2019 Awards page. Here are the GetYourGuide 2019 Award Winners for North America:

NEW this year, GetYourGuide invited travelers to honor their own favorite experiences with a Fan Choice award. The top 25 experiences with the most 5-star reviews were eligible during Fan Choice voting in September. Thousands of travelers voted via GetYourGuide’s Facebook page to reveal the top 10 Fan Choice award winners.
