TUI Musement acts as an open platform for Tours & Activities suppliers and clients. Today TUI Musement offers over 130,000 ‘things to do’ in all major holiday and city destinations worldwide and is heavily investing into expanding its offering by connecting new suppliers. The inventory is distributed to all 21 million TUI customers, through B2B partnerships – such as the recently announced strategic partnership with – and B2C through the Musement and TUI websites. The service was created to help travellers discover and book things to do – from museum visits to city tours, food and wine tastings, sports events and wellness activities – wherever they go, with the goal of enriching their travel experience. Previously known as TUI Destination Experiences, which included the independently operated Musement business, the new TUI Musement will create value for its suppliers and customers by rolling out a unique digital platform+ model, which combines a scalable digital platform for sourcing, producing and distributing Tours & Activities, with curated service delivery in more than 50 countries worldwide.

In 2020 we have been awarded with the Great Place To Work Italia Certification.

Your Mission @Musement

Musement's backend architecture embraces the "backend for frontend" pattern.
This approach allows us to easily connect our backend to a bunch of different client applications: SPA, mobile app or other backend systems.

The whole architecture is on AWS and is managed with an Infrastructure As a Code approach.
