About Xola

Xola builds powerful, modern, and easy-to-use booking and marketing software that provides the backbone of the 21st-century tour and activity business. Our platform allows tour providers to efficiently run their companies, saving them time, catalyzing their business growth, and letting them focus on what they love most- making memories with their customers.

With Xola, businesses can easily accept and manage customer bookings from any channel: in person, over the phone, or online. Additionally, Xola software handles payments, calendaring and scheduling, inventory management, employee management, gifts and special offers, customer communication, and sales through online and local distribution partners.

Tour providers can run their businesses on the go with the Xola mobile app.

Xola is not a consumer-facing marketplace.

Xola integrates with online travel agents (such as Viator, a TripAdvisor company) through our industry-leading API, and facilitates bookings through local resellers and concierges.

Xola was founded in 2011 by Scott Zimmerman and Anush Ramani to serve the businesses behind the $120 billion global tours and activities market. Our mission is to build enterprise-caliber business tools for companies of all sizes. Xola's headquarters are in San Francisco, CA with an office in Bangalore, India.
