  • The greatest travel tool out there!

    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't imagine planning a trip to another city without this app. I can't wait to use the app in Europe!!!
  • Love it

    It’s a new app so it’s a work in progress but I see a lot of potential. The CEO seems very passionate & 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 & this would’ve been so much more useful & avoided wasted hours trying to find routes. Really looking forward to testing in many more countries.
  • Just what I needed

    I used the app while in Bucharest and appreciated links to the different websites associated with different sites. I really appreciated the map feature as well.
  • Like having a local friend in each city

    I like the fact that they’ve designed the guides in conjunction with someone who already lives in each city and knows it well. Yeah you have to pay for each city, but it definitely would cost more than $2.99 to figure out by yourself where the best hole in the wall restaurant is, or which sights I don’t really want to see, or customize which ones I want to see but aren’t on the map. For the few places that don’t have audio, those city guides only cost 99 cents, so I think it’s a pretty good deal. And the offline map option is pretty thoughtful so you’re not paying international roaming.
  • Fantastic App and Company

    I love the attention to detail in the city guides! Also the personal emails and knowledge from the Founders was incredibly helpful!

    The app functioned initially, but now greets me with “Error: Invalid User Credentials”, then perpetual “Map loading...”
  • Must have ap

    I used this ap on a solo trip through Washington D.C. It gave me many great ideas outside of the ordinary historic buildings /museums / monuments. I would recommend this ap and look forward to using it again on my next adventure! Thank you for help!

    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!
  • This app made my trip!

    Easy to use and very detailed. When headed to a place you've never been to before this app lays it all out for you. You don't have to stress about so much research because it's at your fingertips. I felt confident that I would explore all the highlights of a new country. I've already used it twice and plan to use it again!
  • Great app, even better service

    The guides on the app are very “to the point” and precise in what should you do, as if you’ve got a local buddy to show you around. The guys behind the app keeps in touch and gives awesome service experience. This app really made my latest trip to SF and LA super fun and effective. Highly recommended.
