Leave your business challenges up to the Monks

Starting out with just an Excel spreadsheet and his tremendous experience in the travel industry, founder David Manley’s personal and customized approach got his business taking off faster than any normal spreadsheet could handle. As his customers increased, unfortunately scalability did not. So TopMonks fixed it.

Now GRE travels with automation

With every destination they offer, GRE becomes an expert by combining local knowledge with their own first-hand experiences. This ultimate combo of tips, hacks and travel wizardry is then inputted into a uniquely structured database, enabling GRE’s proprietary algorithm to instantly create a perfect and customizable itinerary for anyone. Travelers can sit back, relax, and spend their time the way they want. No matter how complex a trip may seem, GRE masters the art of giving a seamless experience.

Seamless experience

Collecting what you want

Customers choose when, where and what they want and would enjoy most.

An all-in-one crafted trip

Presenting a unique, personalized itinerary with the overall plan including transportation, accommodation, tours, and transfers automatically generated for each traveler.

Triple checking so customers don’t have to

The itinerary reflects the preferences of the travelers while also accounting for seasonal activities, date restrictions, and transportation schedules.

A personal guide on the go

An itinerary that always has your back, including smart navigation for self-guided travel, one-step package booking, and presenting opportunities to experience special activities like symphony concerts, cycling trips, private guides, cable cars to mountain summits, and more – all at your fingertips.

Soaring even higher with TopMonks under its wings

With proper automation and room to scale, GRE has already hit $2.3M in sales this year, putting them on track to land double as much from 2017. As GRE got bigger, they needed more space. With that said, TopMonks helped raise $200K to make it happen. As we speak, GRE is raising an additional $1.5M to expand around the globe.

Leveling up the travel industry

We believe they’ll be the next unicorn and we’re pretty thrilled to be part of this. Originally starting out with just 3 monks, we’ve now got just one who’s teamed up with another dev from GRE’s side. The MVP went from Ruby 3.2 to 5.2, where it’s currently still running. But with a lot of growth comes a lot of future plans, and GRE has already partnered with Prague Startup SmartGuide to integrate its catchy mobile travel app into GRE’s itineraries.
