Discover Cities in a Stress-Free Way with

Paris, France (June 14, 2009) -- Going to Paris? Why not have dinner at the Eiffel Tower? Visiting Rome? Ready to see with our Angels and Demons tour what inspired Dan Brown's bestselling novels? Just arrived at the Big Apple? How about a helicopter ride over New York City? City Discovery, an online provider of over 5000 tours and activities across 300 destinations, can help the traveler find a suitable activity.

For the person unfamiliar with online booking, booking activities before traveling seems silly, yet it follows the current trend of tourists willing to fully book their trip before taking the plane. It is a stress-free way of traveling: no more queuing, tours cancelled at the last minute, or abusive fees. And this is what is all about.

City Discovery began by serving the English-speaking markets, in particular the US market, that are used to booking well in advance their holidays and is now reaching out to Europe. The company recently launched its French (, Italian (, Spanish ( and German ( websites.

"The current economical crisis is shifting tourism products trends and consumption in Europe: people are traveling for shorter periods, closer to their countries, but with a higher frequency," says Emmanuel Issaurat, City Discovery CEO. "In Europe the market will be more about city trips, short travel experience, and the search for best deals on three- to four-day excursions out of town or abroad."

"We are also willing to introduce our services to South America where there is an important number of travelers going to the USA and Europe." He reports that a Portuguese adaptation ( of the main website will also be launched.

Translated websites for markets in Scandinavia, Russia, China, Korea and Japan will also be launched.
