PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwired - August 19, 2014) - Travelers looking to add top-rated tours and activities to their upcoming travel itineraries can now easily do just that thanks to a new partnership between Wyndham Hotel Group -- the world's largest hotel company with approximately 7,540 hotels -- and travel tour booking company GetYourGuide.
Upon completing a reservation on any of Wyndham Hotel Group's branded websites, travelers can now connect directly via link to GetYourGuide's catalog of more than 25,000 activities around the globe, which includes everything from sightseeing bus rides and cooking demonstrations to guided walking tours, helicopter rides and more. While searching, members have the ability to sort activities and tours by country and city as well as by tour type and price. Tours can then be booked directly online and confirmed through GetYourGuide.

"In partnering with GetYourGuide, we're giving customers a simple and seamless way to find and book tours and activities that are sure to help them make the most of any trip, whether it's a weekend getaway to their favorite city or a business trip to someplace they've never been."
