The Team of City Discovery

About Us

10 years from now, what will you remember about your trip? The hotel where you stayed? The airline you used?

We believe your best memories will be having dinner at the Eiffel Tower, tasting wine in a Tuscan cellar, viewing the New York skyline from a helicopter, learning how to dance the tango in Buenos Aires or climbing Mt Fuji at sunrise.

It's doing things for the first time in a city you've never been to and wanting to do it all over again that makes a holiday so special.

City Discovery is about helping you find that unforgettable experience and bring you the best part of your vacation.

City Discovery is a leading provider of sightseeing tours, travel experiences and ground transportation worldwide.

Different tours for different folks - That's why we have more than 8,000 hand-picked travel activities in over 700 destinations from general interest tours to specialized themed activities to meet your different travel pursuits. We'll help you decide your tours with user-friendly features such as traveler reviews, wish lists and suggested itineraries.

Wide coverage - Travelers can book tours directly through or a network of over 16,000 travel agencies and affiliates.

Multiple languages - City Discovery is available in 18 languages and has offices in USA, France, Italy, Greece, and the Philippines.

« City Discovery is especially strong in its offerings for the US, France, Greece, Italy, Brazil and the Philippines. The decade-old, Paris-based company has perhaps the most cosmopolitan feel of all these sites, as its website is available in many languages and its offerings are sometimes more geographically diverse. The site tends to be strongest in “culture vulture” tours. » BBC, January 2013

Our History

Established in 2003 by a team of travel professionals, City Discovery started out as a simple web-based reservations system that allowed travelers to book tours and activities quickly and easily. Over the years, City Discovery has proven to be an invaluable online resource for travelers looking to book attraction tickets and things to do worldwide. The goal is the same now as it was then: to help travelers find inspiration and experiences to make the most of any trip.
