Disappointing Travel App for the money

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!

Love the interactive guides!

These guides have been a wonderful addition to all my travels!! As a student studying abroad, I love hearing the perspectives of the locals in each city AND the maps are quick & easy to access. It's really helped me to connect with the city I'm traveling in because the audio guides give off such a friendly vibe! I have a budget so this app made it a much cheaper way for me to tour each city & I was able to download the maps of the city without using any data. Going at my own pace was great too because I was able to stop and sight-see while pausing my tour. Awesome guides, very informative yet fun, and also interactive... Love this app, I'm sharing it with all my friends!!

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.
