GetYourGuide, a Zurich-based tour platform, announces that they have raised $25 million in a Series B Spark Capital and Highland Capital Partners, who previously backed the company as part of a $14-million Series A in January, 2013.
This latest round more than doubles their total funding, as they had previously raised $20.5 million in a series of rounds over the past couple of years. Since its launch in 2009, the company has developed partnerships for 25K activities in more than 2,400 global locations.
CEO Johannes Beck says that they intend to use this funding to continue to expand into new markets and further develop their mobile offerings.
GetYourGuide operates as a standard tour platform, offering users a platform for discovering thousands of local tours in location around the globe. Visitors to their website can search by location, type of activity, price, and more.
