Ratings and Reviews
Paris, Tokyo, Cape Town, Buenos Aires—Lonely Planet’s travel guides cover an incredible range of cities worldwide. The publisher’s awesome app offers dozens of guides free, and they’re all crammed full of insider knowledge and trustworthy tips. Get the expert lowdown on local hotels, restaurants, shops, museums and highlights every visitor should know about. Learning about attractions near your current location is super-handy, and the offline maps are detailed and easy to use.
I tested the app several times before leaving to Europe, download offline maps as required. The app did NOT work on my phone. Besides cover pages for 3 countries I was visiting (Geneva, Paris and Barcelona) and nice blank white screens for each nothing was loading. It was very disappointing.
Use the other apps instead!
I always loved the LP books. The app is equally as useful and enjoyable with a tad less weight.
Thanks Brooksytm. We're glad you like the Guides app!
