Customer Reviews

Great app!

I love all the fantastic information this app gives you about your destinations. I used it to plan a trip through New Orleans and we were able to find where to go, where not to go, and the good places to eat as well. I have been having some glitches with the website links not working to the tour or restaurant I was looking at, and it was a little annoying to have to go back to my browser and type it in, but really that’s my only complaint. A great app!

An absolute must

Lonely Planet’s guides have always been the very best resources out there. This app synthesizes the traditional bound guides into a strong, simple interface that literally puts the world at your fingertips. I’d love to see a day planning tool in a future update similar to Google Trips to really organize my need to see and do absolutely everything! Keep up the phenomenal work guys!

Great for planning

This app is a great starting place for planning and when you’re there and stuck on what to do or where to eat. Would recommend to all!
