  • Such a unique way to travel & discover hidden spots only locals know about! Nov 21, 2018

    By Lauren Remar
    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 Aug 21, 2018

    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! Jan 24, 2019

    By Joe72949472710
    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!
  • Nice, easy to use way to organize travel Dec 19, 2019

    By Rayne ☔️
    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.

    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 Aug 21, 2018

    By Wally Mostafa
    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 Jul 9, 2018

    By Cantonese in NC
    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 Feb 23, 2020

    By IsaGonnaRock
    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.
  • Great accessory to any trip planned! Feb 3, 2020

    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 & 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!

    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 Jun 14, 2018

    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.

    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!!!
  • Like Having a Friend in Every City Oct 20, 2019

    By akm4mom
    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.

    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.
