TripScout helps you discover the world like never before and has been named as a top travel app by USA Today, Travel & Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler, Forbes, and more! We curate the best recommendations from local experts and provide trip-planning tools to personalize your travel experience.

Our app provides insider tips that you won’t find in guidebooks. We teach you about a place’s culture, and ensure you uncover all of a city’s hidden gems – from a grandma running a restaurant out of her house, to a hidden speakeasy bar, to street art that helped inspire a revolution.

Experience where chefs eat, where bartenders drink, and where baristas meet for coffee. Learn about a city’s iconic sites, wander around the coolest neighborhoods, and find vantage points only photographers know about.

Our app works completely offline and has engaging podcast-style audio guides from locals in many of our cities.

There are fascinating stories all around us. We just have to know where to look.

Love the interactive guides!

Lauren Remar

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.

Embassy Brat Approved


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!
