Peek raises $5 mln in second round

The travel activities booking site Peek announced it has raised $5 million in its second round of funding that was led by Todd Kimmel from Montage Ventures. As part of the funding, Kimmel has joined the board, which also includes co-founders Ruzwana Bashir and Oskar Bruening. Other new investors in the second round include individuals Brad Gerstner (founder of Altimeter Capital) and Jeff Fluhr (co-founder of StubHub and Spreecast), as well returning investors. The San Francisco-based company has now raised $6.5 million in total funding. Peek.com was launched in 2012 with funding from Jack Dorsey (co-founder of Twitter and Square), Eric Schmidt (former CEO of Google) and David Bonderman (founding partner of TPG Capital), among others. The company helps travelers and locals to book activities, such as sightseeing tours and wine tastings.

UPDATE: The description of Peek’s services was changed to better reflect what the site does.
