TripAdvisor Top Honors

We are thrilled to report that last week Shoreline Sightseeing was awarded some major honors from TripAdvisor! On February 13th the 2018 Experiences, Tours, and Activities Trend Report was released and included rankings for the world’s most popular experiences: 2017, global travelers and also the USA’s most popular experiences: global travelers, 2017 – we are proud to report we were ranked in both categories!

Shoreline Sightseeing was ranked #2 on the list of The World’s Most Popular Experiences: 2017, global travelers and #1 on the list of The USA’s Most Popular Experiences: global travelers, 2017.

Coming in first on the world experience ranking is Skip the line: Vatican Museums, St. Peter’s, Sistine Chapel. Other notable mentions include Rome Hop-On, Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour and Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour. We’ve included the full list of the world’s most popular experiences below.

We are no stranger to coming in on top on TripAdvisor USA rankings, back in June 2017 the Top 10 Most Booked U.S. Tours was released and we also debuted at #1. This list included a few Grand Canyon tours, excursions in New York, and a couple popular San Francisco activities – all of which came in after our Architecture River Tour.

The newest list of the USA’s most popular experiences is largely dominated by New York City experiences including the Empire State Building, Big Bus, and the Statue of Liberty. However, we were excited to see another Chicago experience ranked – Skydeck Chicago came in at #7. We’ve included the full list of the USA’s most popular experiences below.

Some notable travel trends for 2018 include the fact that while travelers are still loyal to visiting iconic sites, they are starting to branch out to try new experiences. Cultural categories such as food tours, cooking classes, and historical and heritage experiences saw the most growth over the past year. US travelers are also booking more cooking and restaurant experiences while also taking part in more outdoor activities.
