Recently we’ve been trying to plan the perfect getaway, only to realize we actually have no clue what we’re doing. Been there too? After spending seemingly endless amount of hours attempting to plan a trip to Istanbul, Ruzwana Bashir came across the same problem, which is precisely when she came up with the brilliant idea for travel site and app Peek. “The average person visits 22 different websites when planning a trip. I wondered why there wasn’t one place to find exactly what I should do and a way to book it immediately.”
With the help of vacay experts and fashionable tastemakers like Diane von Furstenberg and Tory Burch, Peek not only provides a guide to the must-see landmarks for your destination, but also the ease of instantly booking thousands of activities in real time. Think of it as your OpenTable for travel.
The app takes it one step further by allowing you to find cool niche experiences—like indoor ice climbing in London or a sand dune tour in Boston—based on availability, proximity, and even personality. “Our personality quiz tells us exactly the kind of traveler that you are, like a foodie, culture junkie, or explorer,” says Bashir. “And from that we curate a group of activities just for you.” Currently in 19 cities, and rapidly expanding in both the U.S. and abroad (next up is Mexico), it has never been so simple to build the ideal itinerary. See below for some of the most popular spring break activities currently on Peek.
