Ratings and Reviews
Easy to use and extremely informative tours
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!
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
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.
