NEWTON, Mass., Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TripAdvisor ®, the world's largest travel site*, today announced it has finalized the acquisition of Viator, a leading resource for researching and booking destination activities around the world.

"Now that Viator is officially part of the TripAdvisor family, we're excited to help even more travelers explore their destination like an insider, powering advance and last-minute access to thousands of amazing travel experiences worldwide," said Ms. Barrie Seidenberg, president and CEO of Viator.
