Absolutely love using this app. Travel is much easier and far more interesting when using Tripscout to plan and execute trips. As added bonuses the Tripscout Instagram account has incredible photos and the new Facebook group is really helpful when considering travel
Fun, Easy To Use and Informative Travel App
by RZ Traveler on 2020/12/04 01:31
[Updated to reflect app updates] I’ve been using TripScout now since the early years, and I can’t be happier. The updates are amazing, the new design is sleek and beautiful, and it makes me want to get back out there, whenever that will be possible 🤞🏻🤞🏻 Can’t wait to see where things go!
Fantastic app. Really is a great tool.

1000000% better than trip advisor
by Sarsh37 on 2020/11/09 01:27
These are tons of experienced travelers. They don’t take you to the top rated five star restaurant... they take you to the hole in the wall, home cooked meal that seats a total of 7 people. And the meal is better than you’ve ever tasted. I have used this app from Cairo to Croatia to Iceland and it has saved me so much time on trying to find the interesting desolate places!
Recommend!

Best Travel app. Fun and easy to use and full of information needed for planning much needed trip.
Amazing

Still exploring the app, so far I have found good articles on what to do and with each place it explains the story behind it which I think it’s awesome
Easy and convenient

Trip Scout
by iluvnewfie on 2020/06/29 13:52
I especially like to use this beforehand. I check out what I want to see and do and their locations . I then find accommodations nearby. It is a time saver for me.
I love this app!
by BeyondDakota on 2020/06/20 02:57
It’s great for finding places I wouldn’t otherwise know about. They’re still working on adding more places so they don’t have all my stops but so far it’s been helpful!

Great app! Allows you to save places you would like to visit and also puts them on a map to show the distance between places! Gives the option to plan out your entire vacation by selecting which day you would like to do which activities.
New favorite travel app!
by Dant RC on 2020/05/14 19:45
Great app! Really unique approach to building an itinerary, and really cuts down on time used researching your destination. They do the legwork of finding so many resources and information for you.
Love so far

It is really helpful, it give me great information to help plan my trip even more. The only thing I suggest is more pictures or videos so you can kinda get a visual idea.
A-MA-ZING
by Cassandra32100 on 2020/03/24 01:30
I love this app so much!! I’ve used it for every city I visit (even if I’m just passing through) it’s even helped me find new exciting things in my own town!! I would rate this app 100/10 if I could. I recommend it to everyone who tells me their traveling. I can’t wait for more cities on the app. Truly incredible app, definitely recommend! :)
Love Trip Scout
by Hilary’s Itunes on 2020/03/21 12:04
I think this is the first time I have ever written a review for an app. I use trip scout and all of its options online and through emails whenever I travel now. I have used it to travel in the UK, France, and Spain. I will use it in the USA next time we travel state side. We’ve found restaurants and schedules and plenty of options and it’s just such a friendly site. Looking forward to getting back out into the world of travel soon!
Super easy

Useful for travel
by mbautista20 on 2020/02/26 13:18
Great information about the places i was going to visit definitely gonna use it for other trips to come.
Love it with a few suggestions
by Hallsninja on 2020/02/26 09:52
Love the app! Some features I think will make it better: One tap on the map so I can only see all my saved place without the list down below Ccreate categories/folders for my saved places. Can add tags for saved place
Best trip app available!
by whutehat927 on 2020/02/25 06:03
TripScout has been an extremely useful tool for planning an upcoming trip to Europe! The resources available are only limited by your imagination! Well worth the small space on your phone. I also get Konrad’s podcast School of Travel to augment the app! Happy travels! TripScout will help your efforts to make your trip a memorable event for you and those you travel with around the world!
Amazing!
by Hollafromro20247962!!! on 2020/02/23 18:45
This is my first internet review and it’s because I’m so blown away. Incredible app. I have seen so many poor travel apps. This one blows all the others out of the water.
TripScout is the best
by IsaGonnaRock on 2020/02/23 13:00
In making plans for walking the path of unknown cities and countries around the world, TripScout is my first stop on learning the secrets of a lot of other travelers in making it the best experience possible. This app not only has an amazingly knowledgable web host who can assist in answering questions, but by far the best audience that very quickly adds their experiences and not just to tell you what commercialized restaurant in that area to go to. We are talking about the little nook and cranny spots that the home town people go to for dining, recreation and amazing art, parks and sight seeing that would be missed if you went by most other web apps.

Timely and helpful.
Easy to use
by Michelle Bazaldua on 2020/02/20 14:39
As a traveler, I was looking for an app that would simplify my destinations. This app was able to offer me not only information about the place of interest but also allowed me to save, add in itinerary per day, plus it would map it which availed with deciding which activity to do first based on my location surroundings. Loved this app!
Food

I haven’t gone on the study abroad trip yet, but I have already found some good vegan options that I’m excited to try when I get to London!

We traveled to Iceland a year and a half ago and used the downloadable apps! It was really cool because it showed us some places we would’ve never known to visit!
Great Concept
by Acrisp19837472&@1@" on 2020/02/15 16:14
Really happy with this app so far. I’ve tried others that collate my own selections, but the in-app recommendations make this so useful for planning a trip in a new place.

This is a really neat app for finding tons of different articles about where you’re traveling and things to do while you’re there. You upload when you’re going and where, and they send you new stuff every day! I’ve found some really cool things on here and it’s definitely worth checking out for your next trip!
Don’t Go To Montana With This
by KF6DBS on 2020/02/12 03:54
If you do, don’t use this app to plan your trip. It only has cities big enough that I wouldn’t need this app to gather information. Worthless.
Trip scout=life changing

by Gillian Morris on 2020/02/04 05:02
I work in the travel industry so I&#39;ve seen a lot of city guides like this and tripscout is by far the best. What an informative, fun take on my favorite cities - I&#39;m buying even the ones I don&#39;t plan to visit soon just for the fun listening!
Great accessory to any trip planned!
by Jeffrey J. Smith on 2020/02/03 22:47
I found this app a few months before me and Fiancé went to Greece. We had no idea what we wanted to do there and what we were going to do other than visit the Acropolis in Athens of course! Thanks to TripScout, we were able to make a full itinerary of what we wanted to do. The app provided everything though, not just the hotspots like Travel &amp; Leisure gives you. It gave us places off the grid that we wouldn’t have heard of if not for this app! This app is amazing and super helpful for planning any type of trip! 10/10 recommend!
Very innovative idea
by Fawzi88 on 2020/01/29 07:21
Although it is a little cumbersome to add places to dates but it was very useful during my trip. It is really a very useful app
Inflated reviews?
by Terry76767 on 2020/01/28 18:06
When I open app to search a city, it asks if the app is helpful. I can’t even get to the city so how how do I know if it’s helpful? If I click “No” I can’t progress this repeatedly occurs. Seems like a ploy to get “Yes” answers.
Perfect Travel Guide
by Delisahhh on 2020/01/28 17:20
I just started using this app and already LOVE it! I was routed to it from their Instagram page. The app has many features but so far I have been given amazing articles based on the location I want to travel. It shows you free places and hidden gems! The research goes on and on and what’s super cool is that you can favorite places to go that we’re listed in the article. Thank you for creating this!

A more organized Pinterest
by Lstravels on 2020/01/13 13:36
TripScout is a travelers friendly version of Pinterest that doesn’t so much overwhelm you with search results but cater to you as a person. Organizing a trip is fast and information from multiple posts quickly translates over to a map where you can save all the places you want to visit. It’s the local insight with the worldwide voice.

It’s a really simple UI so it’s easy to use. Plenty of information no matter where you’re planning to go or what you’re planning to do. One day i decided to use the app to find things to do in my area and it showed me a bunch of stuff I had no idea was around me. Bottomline 10 out of 10; would download again.

Nice, easy to use way to organize travel
by Rayne ☔️ on 2019/12/19 02:53
This is definitely the best travel app I’ve ever used out of the half dozen I’ve tried. I recently used this app on a trip I took to Seoul, it was great for organizing places i wanted to go to, and suggested new ones I hadn’t found yet! It runs smooth and the navigation works fairly well. There’s so subscription service, and no annoying ads. Just a solid app all around. The only things I’d add to this service to make it better would be a way to add businesses/places that are super cool, and most importantly, a way to flag businesses that no longer exist so that people don’t make the same treks across town to somewhere that may have moved or closed. This happened at least 6 out of 25 places I went to.
Great app

Great Resource!
by tihelto on 2019/11/22 15:30
I am soo enamored with this app, it has drop locations for each place, which is super helpful because I’m a map oriented person. I truly enjoy the articles, they’re so relevant and helpful. I wish I knew about this app way before. It really helps making sure you don’t miss anything when you’re traveling! If I could add a suggestion, it would be nice to have a calendar type interface to see the things you’ve saved. Just a suggestion!

Amazing app!! I love it, so helpful. I usually take weekend trips and have little time to waste on boring, over-touristy attractions. Trip scouts gives a wide variety of options for all travelers to find the best spots to make the most out of any trip. I use it on all my trips.

Easy to use and extremely informative tours
by AndyRiddler21 on 2018/10/22 15:24
When I first started using TripScout there were only a few maps and now there are over 100 maps for cities across the world! TripScout makes planning trips easy, convenient and most of all fun! I have used the TripScout mobile guide for vacations to Washington DC, San Francisco, Chicago, Charlotte and Nashville. The travel guides for each of the cities are informative, interesting and helpful. On each of my trips, TripScout led me to cool places that only the locals would know about. (I wouldn’t of been able to find those local places if I used some main stream travel website). Building the itinerary through the app is easy, fun and most of all NOT stressful. I especially love using the offline maps (saves data!) and GPS navigation. I am excited to try out TripScout on my upcoming trips overseas, as I have heard great things about the TripScout Europe guides. TripScout is a must for any novice or experienced traveler. Download now and check it out!
Such a unique way to travel & discover hidden spots only locals know about!
by Lauren Remar on 2018/11/21 19:32
Friends I travel with always ask me, “How do you know where to find all these hole-in-the-wall spots?!” My answer: TripScout! TripScout has made all my trips so memorable, and I feel like a local walking around the city. As a student studying abroad, I used TripScout as a convenient way to travel. The maps are quick and easy to access, and because I was on a budget, it made it a much cheaper way to travel on my own. Plus, I was able to download the maps before I would go exploring- that meant using no data! You can also pre-plan your trip by saving and sorting locations you want to visit! This app has made it easy to connect with the city I’m in because I can go at my own pace. All in all, TripScout has awesome guides that are very informative, fun, and interactive... Love this app, now all my friends are using it!
Fun, local perspective for your travels
by Melissa A King on 2018/08/21 16:51
I got TripScout to use while on a trip to South Korea and Hong Kong. Loved how easy the app was to use and enjoyed my Korean audio guide Sunny. You can download the content for the cities you are visiting so it can be used offline. Sunny suggested some great places in South Korea and we tried some of the picks for Honk Kong dining and they were so yummy. The thing I love the most about this app is that when I bought it, it came with the personal input and touches of its creators. I got a personal email just letting me know they would be happy to help if I got over there and needed any additional suggestions for my trip or travel advice. So often you buy an app and that is it. I really felt like I bought a product that was backed up by real people who love travel and want to help you have the best experience possible.
Just what I needed!
by Joe72949472710 on 2019/01/24 03:07
I downloaded TripScout for a trip I was taking out of the country. It was my first out of country travel and was pretty nervous. I needed an app that would not only give recommendations but also double as a trip planner. My travels took me to Italy and right off the bat TripScout was a huge help. I was able to make an itinerary before I even left the states. The app gave me awesome ideas for things to do and places to see and was simple to navigate. It really eliminated some of the stresses while planning. Once I arrived in my destination TripScout was almost like its own travel guide. I was able to maneuver my way around the city with ease. I was worried about loosing signal but they even had that covered with a map that was accessible offline. I will continue to use TripScout for all of my traveling needs in the future!

The only things I’d add to this service to make it better would be a way to add businesses/places that are super cool, and most importantly, a way to flag businesses that no longer exist so that people don’t make the same treks across town to somewhere that may have moved or closed. This happened at least 6 out of 25 places I went to.
Helpful travel tool
by Sam_Duffield on 2018/08/21 16:35
I have used TripScout in many cities that I have visited! I love that TripScout offers offline maps; this is beneficial when I decide not to purchase international data phone plans! I purchased the annual pass to have access to all the TripScout guides available; this has been super beneficial in helping me choose the next city I visit; as I can then choose a place that has sites I’m interested in visiting or food I’m interested in trying, it also helps me locate where I should get a hotel or air BNB so that I am centrally located to the places I want to visit while in that city. I can’t say enough nice things about TripScout, and I recommend it to everyone I come across who is traveling to a city where TripScout is available!
For the adventurers only
by Wally Mostafa on 2018/08/21 16:18
Unlike your typical travel app that just aggregates a bunch of stars and tells you the most popular things to do, TripScout is for the adventurer in you who doesn’t follow a star rating recommendation but rather the off-the-beaten path recommendations. Guides on the app are provided by someone who actually lives or has visited the location to provide you with the not so mainstream. Which to me is always the most fun. I used this app in Japan and used this app ONLY and I found so many hidden gems. I even use this app where I live in Brooklyn and have discovered so much right outside my door. TripScout is a must for your current or next travel, just try it, you won’t be disappointed!
Disappointing Travel App for the money
by Cantonese in NC on 2018/07/09 20:21
If this were a free app, I would rate it higher. However, you need to make in app purchases for either individual cities or a larger fee for an annual unlimited access I purchased access to only the Washington DC travel pack. I was very disappointed to have spent $10 for a an app with little information and virtually no useful information that one would want to know or need to know while visiting a location. For example, each of the museums and government facilities has their own security standards, screening and what you are permitted to bring in. Trip Scout provided none of this information. In addition, the app only provides a brief overview of the site and then refers you to an outside website. You could do that on your own, get better information, and save yourself some money!
TripScout is the best
by IsaGonnaRock on 2020/02/23 13:00
In making plans for walking the path of unknown cities and countries around the world, TripScout is my first stop on learning the secrets of a lot of other travelers in making it the best experience possible. This app not only has an amazingly knowledgable web host who can assist in answering questions, but by far the best audience that very quickly adds their experiences and not just to tell you what commercialized restaurant in that area to go to. We are talking about the little nook and cranny spots that the home town people go to for dining, recreation and amazing art, parks and sight seeing that would be missed if you went by most other web apps.
Disappointing
by JessterFish on 2018/07/21 08:50
Bought this for an upcoming trip to Copenhagen. I was disappointed to find that the information provided for many spots was a copy/paste from sources on the web that I had already read. How is this their “team of local experts?” For each spot just one photo and little information then it just sends you to Foursquare for more info. Just use Foursquare or Yelp. Not worth paying them to compile info available on the web. Some of the information is wrong as well. How can a new Copenhagen travel guide have NOMA in the old location still? On top of that the interface is clunky with the spots showing large thumbnails that are difficult to select and some map controls overlapping so you can’t select them. Maybe this is better for Larger US or Euro cites but a waste for me.
Great accessory to any trip planned!
by Jeffrey J. Smith on 2020/02/03 22:47
I found this app a few months before me and Fiancé went to Greece. We had no idea what we wanted to do there and what we were going to do other than visit the Acropolis in Athens of course! Thanks to TripScout, we were able to make a full itinerary of what we wanted to do. The app provided everything though, not just the hotspots like Travel &amp; Leisure gives you. It gave us places off the grid that we wouldn’t have heard of if not for this app! This app is amazing and super helpful for planning any type of trip! 10/10 recommend!
Embassy Brat Approved
by diplomattix on 2017/10/24 00:53
Speaking from moderate experience - 20 years living outside my home country on 3 separate continents - I feel qualified to say that TripScout is # for # one of the best city guides I’ve ever used. The content is richly blended with historical insight and humor, the destinations are well curated, and the design of the app is attractive and easily navigable. My only suggested improvements would be to ensure that every selected destination is complete with an audio description. Most of them were, but it was slightly disappointing when I encountered the few that weren’t. Also, the map does not function offline as well as google’s, but that’s probably to be expected. It still works pretty darn well. Happy trails!
Bait and switch audio tour
by NicknameAttempt#5 on 2018/06/14 17:20
UPDATE Jun 14th: Thank you to Tripscout for your response. I appreciate hearing you are working on making it easier to communicate. For point #1: I wish I could upload screenshots to show that even today I still see listed at your web page for the Krakow tour that an audio tour is a benefit so I am keeping my rating the same. For point #2: it is great to be reminded that my credit card is safe. ORIGINAL REVIEW I am looking for an audio tour of Krakow and found TripScout lists one at their website in their web page for Krakow. I was directed to download the app, and was excited see positive reviews. But after downloading the app, then paying for the Krakow tour, the app says there is no audio guide for Krakow. There is no contact info anywhere to directly reach TripScout, so I am left to ask here: why do you list an audio guide, take my money, then tell me there is no such guide? It now worry that I have been scammed and will have to monitor my credit card transactions. I did not want to write this, but I see no other way to 1) try and reach TripScout; and 2) warn others. I will update my review if I hear back from them. In the meantime I am out $$, and still in need of an audio guide.
Like Having a Friend in Every City
by akm4mom on 2019/10/20 20:52
I’ve used TripScout in Ireland, Scotland, San Francisco, Boston, DC and Charleston. I saved a ton of time and money using the app. I was able to review and prioritize sites before arriving, then used it a lot while onsite. Easy to use, knowledgeable descriptions, and much more affordable than hiring local guides. TripScout has tipped us off to many favorite finds, from the best breakfast in DC to a fabulous (tiny) artist’s shop in Charleston. I can’t even imagine walking Boston’s Freedom Trail without it! Exploring’s a lot more fun with TripScout.
The greatest travel tool out there!
by Caitii Star on 2018/02/09 14:48
I just recently planned my first trip to Paris, London, and Dublin with my friend and because of work, I only have 10 days to see all three cities! Luckily, my friend and I were able to plan our out trip with ease using TripScout!! We were able to scope out the hostels we are staying at as well as all the major landmarks, museums, and bars we want to visit. I can&#39;t imagine planning a trip to another city without this app. I can&#39;t wait to use the app in Europe!!!
Great Resource!
by tihelto on 2019/11/22 15:30
I am soo enamored with this app, it has drop locations for each place, which is super helpful because I’m a map oriented person. I truly enjoy the articles, they’re so relevant and helpful. I wish I knew about this app way before. It really helps making sure you don’t miss anything when you’re traveling! If I could add a suggestion, it would be nice to have a calendar type interface to see the things you’ve saved. Just a suggestion!
Love the concept of this app!
by staceymro on 2017/08/16 20:40
This app is a great way to find some hidden gems you would not know about otherwise. The app is full of favorite local hot spots off the beaten path. It&#39;s easy to use and is created for travelers, by travelers wanting to share there favorite spots. So far I haven&#39;t had any real hiccups using the app and I love the interactive map associated with it. Working great so far and I expect it to just get better as more cities are added in to the library of choices.
Love Trip Scout
by Hilary’s Itunes on 2020/03/21 12:04
I think this is the first time I have ever written a review for an app. I use trip scout and all of its options online and through emails whenever I travel now. I have used it to travel in the UK, France, and Spain. I will use it in the USA next time we travel state side. We’ve found restaurants and schedules and plenty of options and it’s just such a friendly site. Looking forward to getting back out into the world of travel soon!
Added to my list of must-have tools for travel!
by AMickus on 2019/03/28 19:51
I used to spend hours researching online for cool things to do in a new city. When I discovered TripScout, it made my life 10x easier - all of the activities and sights that I would’ve had to dig through to find were already there (plus a bunch more hidden gems that I never would’ve found!). TripScout is now the first place I go when I’m planning a new trip!
Excellent App!
by Azzure88 on 2017/09/24 12:11
This app is great for people who want to experience places in different ways, it might be doing things that are off the beaten track but also not missing out on some popular things that are worth checking out. Their restaurant recommendations are also fantastic! The guys are trip scout offered me personal recommendations based on my last holiday and they went above and beyond in providing great service. I had a lovely trip!
A more organized Pinterest
by Lstravels on 2020/01/13 13:36
TripScout is a travelers friendly version of Pinterest that doesn’t so much overwhelm you with search results but cater to you as a person. Organizing a trip is fast and information from multiple posts quickly translates over to a map where you can save all the places you want to visit. It’s the local insight with the worldwide voice.
Perfect Travel Guide
by Delisahhh on 2020/01/28 17:20
I just started using this app and already LOVE it! I was routed to it from their Instagram page. The app has many features but so far I have been given amazing articles based on the location I want to travel. It shows you free places and hidden gems! The research goes on and on and what’s super cool is that you can favorite places to go that we’re listed in the article. Thank you for creating this!
Perfect trip planner and travel buddy
by Gombeast on 2019/01/24 02:59
I have used this app many times on multiple trips around the globe and can honestly stay that it just made my trip so much easier and more efficient. The offline maps helped me navigating through tagged places and things to do in my itinerary so simply, that I was able to see much more than initially planned. Try it on your next trip. Trust me, you won’t regret it!
Great travel app!
by Jhova421 on 2017/08/17 21:16
I recently used TripScout to help me plan a bachelorette trip to New Orleans. I&#39;ve heard such great things about NOLA and couldn&#39;t wait to check out the vibrant city. This app made my trip planning so much easier! It features amazing gems in NOLA. The offline map is a useful tool to navigate around the different sites and you are able to go at your own pace. Oh, it&#39;s informative too! I highly recommend this app!
Best trip app available!
by whutehat927 on 2020/02/25 06:03
TripScout has been an extremely useful tool for planning an upcoming trip to Europe! The resources available are only limited by your imagination! Well worth the small space on your phone. I also get Konrad’s podcast School of Travel to augment the app! Happy travels! TripScout will help your efforts to make your trip a memorable event for you and those you travel with around the world!
Love it
by brittanyweickert on 2018/01/28 19:06
It’s a new app so it’s a work in progress but I see a lot of potential. The CEO seems very passionate &amp; really eager to help. I don’t usually spend money on apps but paying for the Iceland guide is seriously going to help. I have road tripped Iceland alone before &amp; this would’ve been so much more useful &amp; avoided wasted hours trying to find routes. Really looking forward to testing in many more countries.
So far so good!
by Holycowjustacceptmynamealready on 2019/09/24 16:11
One thing I would like to see is the option to add flight details &amp; Hotel check in/out as part of the itinerary. Also, when adding a car rental place, I could not add both the pick up or drop off. Only one date at a time. Luckily there was a second “enterprise” pin that I chose to add as the drop off/departing portion of my trip. Otherwise, a very cool app and will continue to use it and I am excited to see it grow!
Great app
by Annisay1 on 2020/02/14 15:26
This is a really neat app for finding tons of different articles about where you’re traveling and things to do while you’re there. You upload when you’re going and where, and they send you new stuff every day! I’ve found some really cool things on here and it’s definitely worth checking out for your next trip!
Really helpful for my Iceland trip!
by mikeiannetta on 2019/01/24 16:00
This app is the most useful travel app I’ve ever downloaded! Big fan of the trip planner feature and ability to make your own itinerary. The offline map was also super helpful for me as I could still use everything when I didn’t have cell reception in Iceland. Definitely use this app for your next trip!
Up and comer travel app
by johnbracken on 2018/07/27 21:15
This app is easy to use and full of great travel information. I love having the ability to easily filter and find right spots that interest you. The map based navigation, ability to star locations and mark off where you have been are very useful. I look forward to using this app in future travels.
This app made my trip!
by Jseret3 on 2017/10/19 09:58
Easy to use and very detailed. When headed to a place you&#39;ve never been to before this app lays it all out for you. You don&#39;t have to stress about so much research because it&#39;s at your fingertips. I felt confident that I would explore all the highlights of a new country. I&#39;ve already used it twice and plan to use it again!
Easy to use
by Michelle Bazaldua on 2020/02/20 14:39
As a traveler, I was looking for an app that would simplify my destinations. This app was able to offer me not only information about the place of interest but also allowed me to save, add in itinerary per day, plus it would map it which availed with deciding which activity to do first based on my location surroundings. Loved this app!
Essential for every trip
by SandyBlacks on 2019/03/31 18:02
I love planning trips but it is always a struggle to keep track of the places you find. A friend sent me TripScout and I just used it for my trip to NYC. I loved being able to read all of the articles in the app and keep track of everything without my spreadsheet. Will use every time I travel, well done!
Iceland
by jakecblb on 2018/04/16 18:26
I have only used this for Iceland. I was expecting much more detail. This seems to only cover the major landmarks and destinations, leaving out many other significant points of interest. The information on each place is very limited with only one picture provided and a short description. For $9.99 I was expecting a lot more information and details. I wish I could have my money back because this is useless to me. I’ll just stick to trip advisor and my Lonely Planet book which actually has useful details to guide me along my trip and cost about the same.
My Go-To Travel App
by mfriedmann4 on 2017/08/31 15:37
I use TripScout every time I travel internationally. I&#39;ve used it in London, Amsterdam, Berlin and Beijing. I love this app because I don&#39;t have to spend time researching through guidebooks before I go somewhere. I can just land, get to my hotel, open the map and immediately see where all of the points of interest are laid out and intuitively create my own itinerary.
Fun, Easy To Use and Informative Travel App
by RZ Traveler on 2020/12/04 01:31
[Updated to reflect app updates] I’ve been using TripScout now since the early years, and I can’t be happier. The updates are amazing, the new design is sleek and beautiful, and it makes me want to get back out there, whenever that will be possible 🤞🏻🤞🏻 Can’t wait to see where things go!
It’s pretty friggin good
by TheloniusG on 2020/01/05 15:39
It’s a really simple UI so it’s easy to use. Plenty of information no matter where you’re planning to go or what you’re planning to do. One day i decided to use the app to find things to do in my area and it showed me a bunch of stuff I had no idea was around me. Bottomline 10 out of 10; would download again.
Better than any travel guide!
by HisaeChino826 on 2019/01/23 17:33
This app is so easy to use, informative, helpful, and helps you discover awesome new places when you travel. One of my favorite features in the app is being able to add your own spots to your map, so it’s easy to tell where everything is relative to where you’re staying, for example.
Wonderful trip app!
by kereokee on 2017/08/17 21:43
This is the only travel app you will ever need! I would highly recommend this app to all family and friends. The self-paced guided tours are perfect to allow for a flexible schedule while traveling. The App also saved me hours of research and planning. And all the maps are accessible with no wifi!
It's ok.
by cyalel on 2017/08/29 10:34
I downloaded the guide for Rome, IT hoping to get some good audio guides for different sites in the city. Sadly, most of the point of interest didn&#39;t have audio and those that did were 3 min intros that I could have just read on signs/online. One of the audio guides actually said you can learn a lot more if you take a tour in person...The map of the sights was helpful but otherwise it doesn&#39;t provide much addition info. Personally, I wouldn&#39;t have spent the money for this guide if I had known what I would get.
Started great but glitches and won’t download audio
by Halistone10 on 2018/06/15 18:45
The app started out great but after purchasing the London package, I found that the map view (supposedly available to view without cell data) flickered in and out when trying to view individual sites. Then I found that the audio guides to each site stopped working. I could listen again to descriptions I’d already listened to. But no new ones could be listened to. Even when I returned to WiFi these remained unavailable. I’d seriously consider holding off until these glitches are corrected.
Inaccurate, no response from Andy
by gingergene on 2018/09/24 23:26
Based on what I saw and the support I received, I wouldn’t spend the memory on this app if it was free. I definitely wouldn’t spend $$ for this! I was able to download one city guide for free, so I picked Savannah, GA, which I know well, to get a feel for the quality of the guide and to see how it matches up with my tastes. I didn’t see anything special- you would get the same recommendations from TripAdvisor, yelp, or any of the free guides out there. What you *wouldn’t* get is recommendations for restaurants that closed several years ago or bars in the “food” category (I mean, you can eat the drink garnish, I guess, so technically it’s dinner?) When you sign up and download a city guide, you get an email from “Andy” that tells you to call, text or email him back. I tried this to see if there was a way to suggest corrections, but never got any response.
Iceland
by Pete Pajor on 2018/03/25 12:42
I can only speak to the Iceland guide. I bought the app as part of my trip planning and thought it would be helpful for navigation. I found the content had a lot of gaps and felt kind of random. Sites that were included linked to nonexistent third party content. Ended up using google maps for both content (checking out reviews and posted pics) and navigation as cell/data service was fine. Cross referenced stuff using trip advisor and created starred places and was good to go.
Trip to Nashville
by DrewBriz on 2020/01/15 19:31
I have recently been planning my first trip to Nashville. This app has given me not only the must see,trendy, and basic must see/do in Nashville. It has given many other options for different activities off the beaten path. Highly recommend using this tool for planning a journey!
Personal attention to their customers.!!
by Romeo2177 on 2018/02/20 15:35
My map wouldn’t download for the offline map service where you can see the map at the top of pikes peak or outer space! I email the support center and in one day they fixed the bug and resolved my problem and told me how to download the map. GET THIS APP YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED AND IF YOU ARE THEY WILL WORK HARD TO FIX IT.
Cool app
by Gforcenyc on 2017/09/02 20:59
Has potential to really disrupt and transform tourism and particularly the whole annoying pay for an audio guide thing at museums. though currently the details for given location are high level and lacking in detail. In my experience at least. Keep it going! Maybe partner w some podcasters or local experts?
Long time fan
by Lagruel on 2020/12/10 02:24
Absolutely love using this app. Travel is much easier and far more interesting when using Tripscout to plan and execute trips. As added bonuses the Tripscout Instagram account has incredible photos and the new Facebook group is really helpful when considering travel
Outstanding Customer Service
by nc_wolfpack on 2018/09/21 19:08
I downloaded TripScout in anticipation of an upcoming European trip. It downloaded successfully but somehow it recognized my email twice and I had issues with usage. Konrad worked with me patiently and tirelessly until it was resolved. The customer service is top notch and I’m having fun planning my vacation. Thanks Konrad!
A Must Have!
by Daisy82886 on 2018/06/07 14:03
TripScout is the perfect app for a vacation OR a quick weekend getaway. Even a business trip that you can sneak a few hours in to explore! Their map is amazing and gives you an instant sense of your surroundings. I love knowing if there are any nearby places to see or eat too! I can’t believe I ever traveled without it!
