Gidsy is now part of GetYourGuide

Gidsy is now part of GetYourGuide. We’re going to continue what we set out to do: bring people together around activities.

Just over a year ago, we set out to change the way people travel and explore the world. The idea was sparked from a failed mushroom hunt - we couldn’t find a local expert to help us pick wild mushrooms for a risotto - and grew from there. Together with a Community of local guides and experts, passionate explorers, makers, foodies, pilots and more, Gidsy quickly expanded from Berlin to over 140 cities across the world.

Together with you, we brought Gidsy to every corner of the globe, started a Food Revolution, DIY’d over Maker Weekends, got together for Meetups and most importantly, had fun. We were constantly inspired and humbled by the wonderful stories we heard, and the people we met and were lucky to work with through Gidsy. Above all else, we must extend a heartfelt thank you to the amazing Gidsy Community, for everything.

You can learn more about the news on our homepage, or you can send us a line at support@gidsy.com.

Keep exploring,

- The Gidsy Team
