Ten Reasons Why Viator.com Experience Gift Certificates are the Perfect Fit this Holiday Season
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (December 5, 2007) - Is this something he'd like? Does she have this already? I thought you were buying his gift! The perfect solution to all of this holiday gift-giving uncertainty is simple - the Viator.com Experience Gift Certificate. Viator.com, the leading resource for more than 5,500 tours, activities, events and experiences in more than 450 destinations around the world, has gift certificates available in four currencies (AUD, GBP, EURO and GBP), in denominations of $25, $50, $100, $200 or $500.
Avoid the stress of what to buy for whom, give a Viator.com Experience Gift Certificate, and let your loved ones select the experience of their choice. Adventurers can choose to punctuate their next holiday with activities like Hot Air Ballooning, Sky Diving or Scuba Diving; traditionalists can step it up a notch with exclusive sightseeing activities like a private guided tour of the Louvre or an after-hours tour of the Vatican Museums; or for those seeking something different, little known gems like becoming a dolphin trainer for a day in Cabo San Lucas or learning to cook in a local farmhouse by a Tuscan chef in Florence will be sure to please. There are also plenty of great experiences to choose from right in many hometowns, like local shows and events, dining excursions, and unique opportunities to see your own city from a very different perspective, whether during a helicopter flight or through the eyes of a local professional photographer.
