"These 10 personal travel photos represent the delight we hope our customers are having every time they book a Viator experience," said Kelly Gillease, vice president of marketing for Viator.

Whether you’re swimming with the fishes or riding a camel through the desert, a photo is the best way to keep that memory alive long after you’ve returned from holiday. The team at Viator – the leading resource for researching and booking tours and activities worldwide – reviewed thousands of images submitted by travelers in 2014 to pick their top 10 favorite photos of 2014 (in no specific order) helping commemorate what was obviously a great year in travel and inspire more of the same for 2015.

“While the ‘selfie stick’ may change the perspective of photos in 2015, many of the most interesting images of 2014 were captured by a companion as the travelers themselves were clearly more focused on their activity than on their cameras,” said Kelly Gillease, vice president of marketing for Viator. “Photos posted by travelers on the Viator site and app help fellow travelers preview an experience before booking it; a picture can truly be worth a thousand words. These 10 personal travel photos represent the delight we hope our customers are having every time they book a Viator experience.”
