We’re interested in learning about the newest, most promising, and most promising developments in business. And throughout our hunt, we came across a lot of businesses, cutting-edge goods and services, and trailblazing leaders.
We make an effort to present the newest and most popular information and trends in the business world. Along the way, we ran upon TourScanner’s CEO and co-founder Simon Semprini. The most recent technical development in the travel and tourism sector is TourScanner.
Let’s start talking with Simon Semprini, CEO and co-founder of TourScanner, right away. Learn more about TourScanner, its features, and some insider information from Simon.
Brief us about the company, what inspired you to start the company?
The first meta-search engine for tours, attractions, and outdoor activities offered in a particular tourist destination is called TourScanner. It functions similarly to Skyscanner and Trivago but focuses on excursions and activities.
TourScanner is the largest inventory in the world, with over 1.5 million deals available to search from any anywhere in the world. More than 1.5 million unique users have visited TourScanner as of this writing, the majority of them are from the United States and Europe.
As a travel enthusiast, I became aware that there was no website displaying all tours and ticket deals for a specific tourist location. I know how challenging it may be to go through websites to compare rates or haggle over costs in person while dealing with language barriers.
What are the products or services the company focuses on? How are your services different from those in the market?
TourScanner specializes in tours and activities, and visitors to our website or mobile app can select the best offer from a comprehensive selection of goods provided by our partners, which include 20 different online travel agencies as well as Viator, GetYourGuide, and Tiqets.
You won’t find a tour on TourScanner if it isn’t available when you want to reserve it for your next trip. You can save time and money by doing this.
Tell us a little bit about your team.
Guillaume Picard and Joseph Dimucci and I founded TourScanner, and for a few years, we were solely responsible for making it work. We were prepared to grow our crew before the COVID-19 pandemic struck, but we had to wait until last year.
In addition to a similar number of freelancers, we now have six more team members to assist us with content management, website development, and marketing. We now all work remotely and are stationed in various places.
Please brief us about your professional experience.
My professional experience in the tour industry has developed alongside TourScanner, as my previous job was in a different field. However, my experience in analysis and research has been integral in my work with TourScanner, especially when devising business and marketing strategies.
Guillaume has many years of professional experience in the tour industry which have proved invaluable in the development process of the company. Joseph has enhanced his knowledge and skills in website development, as we are optimizing our website and expanding our services.
What are the key achievements of your business journey?
Even after accounting for the effects of the epidemic, we have increased our monthly unique visitors from 0 to 1.5 million over the past four years. In order to improve our products and services, we have also grown our team and partnered with new travel companies. We have also demonstrated the company’s profitability.
Any client experience you would like to highlight?
I remember Katherine, one of our clients. She wrote us a nice message thanking us for the advice given about some nice tours to take from Las Vegas and congratulating us on the useful website that we’ve built.
