Airbnb debuted experiences in late 2016; it now offers more than 20,000 activities in 800 cities globally through the "Experiences" tab on its website.Local hosts apply to Airbnb with tour ideas and Airbnb puts them on its site if they're accepted.The larger Marriott Moments program, which launched in October, offers 120,000 experiences in 1,000 destinations, from a $27 walking tour of Detroit to a $588 full-day tour of Tuscany. Those offers – like a pastry class at Le Cordon Bleu cooking school in Paris – can only be booked with Marriott or Starwood points.On both sites, experiences cost the same as they would if travelers booked directly with tour providers. Both Marriott and Airbnb reached out to her directly about her $79 tour, which is offered on both of their websites. But most tours are still booked through her own site.Airbnb began offering a tour similar to hers for $50 . Marriott and TripAdvisor also collect a 25 to 30 percent commission for tours booked through their sites, while Airbnb takes 20 percent.
