Milan, 22 November, 2018

Musement, the global tours and attractions discovery service, is among the partners selected globally by Google for the launch of tours and activities in Reserve with Google, which allows booking of main attractions, guided tours, and many other experiences directly from Google Search, Maps and the Assistant.

Thousands of products from Musement's top sellers are already bookable via Reserve with Google and several tens of thousands more will be available over time, thanks to constant additions of the latest and most exciting activities provided by Musement all over the world.

Once you have started searching for the desired activity (for example "Bike Tours"), look for the “Find tickets” button on a Business Profile on Google (or the “Schedule” button on the Assistant) and tap it. From there you can explore your options, select the number of tickets you need, prepay, and be on your way.

Musement has immediately focused on the technological development of its product to offer the end user a seamless and simple search and booking experience, based on sophisticated machine learning and artificial intelligence systems that recommend the best events in one place, based on users interests, local experts advice, weather and much more.

This has been complemented with over 35,000 bookable products from thousand of suppliers in different verticals - such as art, sports, food & wine, culture and guided tours of all kinds - and will soon add another 15,000 experiences for sun & beach destinations provided by the new TUI DX parent company.

Thanks to the partnership with Google, Musement's offer will now be accessible to an ever-wider audience, which will be able to reach the purchasing phase even more quickly and directly.

"Being part of this new project is not only a major advantage for millions of travelers looking for attractions in the best destinations in the world, but also an incredible opportunity for our huge network of providers of tour, activities and events. A move that will further strengthen our position in B2B2C strategic relationships and that will allow us to enhance our already huge network of partners ", commented Alessandro Petazzi, Musement's CEO and cofounder.

"Being selected by Google as initial partners in such an ambitious project confirms the role of Musement among the most technologically advanced companies on the travel market today and makes us proud and even more motivated to continue on this path. Our goal will be to create cutting-edge solutions to become the most important point of reference for tours∓activities suppliers willing to reach millions of users all over the world ", concluded Fabio Zecchini, Musement’s CTO and cofounder.
