Viator Experience Awards and 'Win Your Wishlist' Sweepstakes Poised to Kick Off Summer Travel Season

As Operators Celebrate Top Recognition on Viator's Platform, Travelers Can Win up to $15,000 in Prizes

NEEDHAM, Mass., May 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Viator, the world's largest travel experiences marketplace, today announced the winners of the 2023 Viator Experience Awards. Now in its second year, this awards program ranks the world's top experiences – setting the standard for the best things to do. And, just in time for the busy summer travel season, Viator is also announcing its first-ever "Win Your Wishlist" sweepstakes–with $15,000 in prizes.

The Viator Experience Awards highlight the best things to see and do, chosen by you.

As international travel continues to skyrocket heading into peak season, historical tours, cultural-driven experiences, and outdoor adventures dominated this year's Viator Experience Award rankings. From exploring the ancient archeological site of Teotihuacaán in Mexico City, to tasting some of the finest chocolates in Geneva, to a candlelit ghost tour through haunted Savannah–each awarded experience offers something truly unique.

"No matter where you're from or where you're going, one thing is clear–the hunger for unforgettable travel experiences has never been greater," said Adam Lawless, Communications Director, Viator. "What you do and see while traveling tends to leave a lasting mark. We're thrilled to have this award program spotlight truly exceptional tours, activities, and excursions from around the world that elevate your travel experience–creating memories you won't soon forget."

Now these top tours can go from daydream to reality with Viator's "Win Your Wishlist" sweepstakes. Viator is giving five lucky winners the chance to win their wishlist. Each week from May 15–June 14, 2023, one traveler will win $2,000 toward their wishlist, and at the end of the month, Viator will announce the grand prize winner of a $7,000 wishlist prize to bring their travel dreams to life. (Terms and conditions apply.)
