The Viator Experience Awards is a new annual program designed to rank top experiences around the world, setting a new bar for the best things to do and see. The final rankings are based on average review ratings, share of bookings with a review, and number of bookings from adventure-seekers around the world during the 2021 calendar year. All bookable experiences with a Badge of Excellence that meet the requirements above were considered in each of the 11 regional geographies for this inaugural launch.

Despite a few very challenging years for the travel industry, City Sightseeing Cape Town has stood out to travellers and provided an exceptional experience.

“The entire Cape Town City Sightseeing family is over the moon to receive these awards. We are acutely aware that most visitors who entrust their valuable time to us, have spent months saving up for their trip. This drives us to make sure that every single visitor has had the BEST time, with lots of happy memories and has fallen in love with Cape Town,” said CEO of City Sightseeing South Africa, Claus Tworeck.

The Viator platform has more than 300,000 bookable experiences onsite. Serving as a new hallmark of the best experiences to book, this first round of Viator Experience Awards recognizes 220 experiences, tours and activities in 11 geographic regions, ranking the top 20 per region.

"With two years of thwarted travel plans in the rearview, we're seeing extraordinary enthusiasm for the season ahead," said Laurel Greatrix, VP of Brand and Communications, Viator. “As travelers venture out in greater numbers than ever, we're excited to introduce the Viator Experiences Awards — and elevate the best-of-the-best tours, activities, and experiences the world has to offer.”
