Google Sightseeing is a frequently updated blog which covers the best of things to see on Google Earth, Google Maps and Street View.

We attract a technically-savvy audience, mostly aged 25-24 and from United States of America, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. The main site is in English but we also provide separate translation sites in French, Italian and Spanish.

Google Sightseeing is unaffiliated with Google, and has been running since April 2005. In that time there has been much press coverage, including LA Times, New York Post, The Guardian, Newsweek, Wired, TIME magazine’s “50 coolest websites of the year”, as well as TV coverage on BBC News 24, BBC World Service and FOX 26.

Google Sightseeing is written and developed by owners James Turnbull and Alex Turnbull, with a small team of contributing writers.
