Today we proudly present 5 incredible video submissions as well as the top 3 photographs, as voted for by the Originals team. However, we received many more amazing photos which will be featured on GetYourGuide’s Instagram and Facebook on February 21, on International Tour Guide Day.

“I believe that every place we visit is the people we are sharing it with, is ourselves with the others, is the energy we receive from the hosts, the smells, the food, the way someone tells us about the history behind what we are looking at, but all the other stories that are shared. And that’s probably one of the things I love the most about being a guide.”

7. Yan, Bali

Yan from the Bali Instagram Highlights Tour

“I believe that having a tour can enrich and enlighten both the tour guide and the guests, so that both of us are always learning and finding something new. When the time has come, when the world is healed and when you are ready to travel again, I shall always be here and ready to guide you and promise that we will have an incredible experience.”

8. David, Amsterdam

David from the Bike Tour of Central Amsterdam

“What I like about my job as a GetYourGuide Originals guide is delivering the best unforgettable experience to our customers. What I like about our customers is that they all arrive in full wonder and excitement to admire and to enjoy Amsterdam. Everything is new to them. My job is to let them discover Amsterdam while telling them the stories that they don’t read in touristic guides.”
