Welcome to the 2014 Viator Travel Awards, our annual rundown where we – along with our readers, travelers, and fans – select the top things to do and see in each of the major regions we serve, the top things to do in our most popular tour categories, and more.
Each year, we look at where Viator travelers are going and what they’re doing and put together a list of some of the most popular things to do in regions all over the globe. This year we’re also breaking it down by your travel style. Looking for the most romantic things to do? We’ve got you covered. Trying to find great activities for kids? Stay tuned because we’ll have ideas for you too.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be handing out our awards in the following categories:

And finally, Viator’s Top 50 Travel Destinations for 2014.
The tours, activities and experiences highlighted in each segment are chosen based on traveler reviews, data from the millions of people who check out Viator.com during the year, and data on which experiences travelers book most often. We think you’ll enjoy reading about the array of activities available in each of these places – it’s the little mental vacation we could all use right now – and we also think this list is a great place to start if you’re planning a trip in 2014.
We hope you’ll check out the winners and let us know which destinations and activities you’re most looking forward to experiencing!
