Celebrating in Sunshine at the GetYourGuide Summer Party
Sunshine, smiles - and even a bit of night swimming. Oh - and sumos. That pretty much sums up our absolutely amazing GetYourGuide Summer Party in July.
It started with invitations to the GetYourGuide Summer Olympics. And in the lead-up to the party, our offices were buzzing with what we might be doing. But none of us could have imagined what our clever, creative People team had in store for us.
On a sunshine-filled Friday afternoon, we found ourselves on a boat floating down the Spree to a secret location, later revealed as the magnificent Bootshaus.
If you’ve never been to the Bootshaus, imagine one of Berlin’s most picturesque settings with white linen-covered tables, magical fairy lights and spectacular scenery.
It was both a reunion and a celebration. We had just spent the last two days at incredible workshops, presentations and training sessions at our Summer Summit.
Our colleagues from across all our international offices were in Berlin so the entire GetYourGuide family was together again. And now it was time to play.
But first, food.
After we’d fueled up with tasty treats, we were ready for the Summer Olympics. Rio would have been proud. There was miniature golf, egg-racing, garden bowling, hula-hooping...and more! But perhaps the most impressive and entertaining...though not for the faint of heart, was the Sumo wrestling. Thrills, spills and chills.
It was a spectacular summer night. But there was plenty of ways to cool off.
Some of us opted for a classic beer or more sophisticated drink. While others decided to dip a toe...or their entire body into the Spree river.
And when all else failed to cool us down - WATER FIGHT!
And what’s a party without a little dancing.
At GetYourGuide we work diligently to turn every customer’s trips into an exceptional experience. So we know about making memorable experiences. And this is certainly one that will live on in our hearts and minds. Oh what a magical, marvelous time.
