Planning a trip can prove to be challenging for even the most frequent flyers. Even after you've booked a flight, you still have to decide where to stay once you land, what tours and activities you want to try, which attractions to see, and where to dine. If all of these factors make your head spin, you'll be relieved to know that Google just released a new tool to eliminate the stressful aspects of travel planning from your to-do list.

It's called Touring Bird and it comes from Google's internal incubator from experimental projects, Area 120. The resource was designed to help travelers explore, compare, and book experiences in one convenient location. Think of it as your own personal travel agent. Choose from 20 different popular cities around the world, including destinations like Amsterdam, Prague, New Dehli, San Francisco, New York, London, and Miami—just to name a few—then explore all of the experiences you can have once you touch down.

Simply click on the city you're planning to visit and you'll be greeted with an array of popular attractions in the area, tour opportunities, and tips from locals and travel experts. The best part is that tickets for each of the activities are available to purchase through the site, allowing you to plan and book every aspect of your trip in no time at all. You'll also find helpful information about the best times to visit specific attractions and how to avoid crowds in popular areas. Take a look at how the new travel tool works below then start planning your next adventure.
