London, United Kingdom, January 28, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- For those looking for something outside of the ordinary, www.ooh.com has the answer. The new online notice board already offers more than 1,000 activities and adventures for people around the world seeking unique things to do, such as a memoir writing class in Paris, a cookery holiday in Venice or paragliding with hawks in Nepal. What’s more, Ooh.com is completely free for site visitors and for suppliers who want to list their activities on the notice board.
The site is simple: visitors intelligently search the thousands of trips, courses, classes, events and vacations listed on www.ooh.com and because the site is more than just a listings site, when visitors find compelling adventures they can check availability and book their reservation directly with the supplier via www.ooh.com. There is no fee to browse activities or to book a reservation.
“Ooh.com is different from an ordinary travel, adventure or activity site because suppliers list directly on the site and we aim to offer truly alternative activities across a variety of topics,” said Pat Reeves, Ooh.com co-founder. “No other site specializes in off-the-beaten-path experiences. You won’t find basic ski vacations or chain hotels on Ooh.com. Instead, we help people identify unknown specialty adventures and things to do. Site visitors can find anything from a chutney-making course or a lindy hop lesson, to a hip-hop tour in Harlem and a kayak trip in Alaska.”
Today, there are more than 1,000 activities listed on www.ooh.com spanning North America, Europe and Africa, Australia and Asia, and the number continues to grow. Experiences cover a wide range of lifestyles, interests, age groups and physical activity. Because of this variety, Ooh.com appeals to virtually anyone with a special interest or hobby or those interested in developing one.
Shane McCallum was one of the first people to book an adventure on www.ooh.com. He said, “It is often the case that people don't always know what we would like to do, and we certainly do not often know what is available. I would never have found out about Roseanne's wild mushroom safari were it not for Ooh.com.”
Outdoor Discoveries is the company that provided the wild mushroom tour referenced by McCallum.
“As a small business, I don’t have a large marketing budget. Ooh.com has given me a free outlet in which I can advertise my wild mushroom safaris and other nature tours to the right group of people who are interested in this unique field,” said Roseanne Van Ee, owner and tour guide for Outdoor Discoveries in British Columbia, Canada. “Ooh.com provides a much more targeted adventure search for businesses like mine looking to reach potential customers.”
Ooh.com is the global notice board where anyone in the world can list and promote their unique things to do, and where site visitors can browse interesting activities, check availability and book their off-the-beaten-path experiences directly with suppliers via Ooh.com. Only at Ooh.com, can visitors book an off-piste skiing trip in Kashmir, India, a memoir writing class in Paris, or a little-known painting class just around the corner.
