  • Great App in Europe

    By Perge!
    I have only used the app for one tour so far in Budapest Hungary with tour guide Agnes and it was amazing. I had some reservations about the idea of a local showing us around but it was truly a great experience. I’ll definitely have to use this service again. Sure beats the sterile hop/off busses or huge tour groups.
  • Super Disappointed

    By Dugas Weatherforth
    App barely works and is full of bugs. Cant even tell if the people are real on this platform. Refund requested immediately.
  • Great experience

    My wife and I had a great experience in Kolkata, India with Jagrity. We can’t complain about anything, the app works great for us.
  • Fraudulent

    This app makes it impossible to stop your subscription. Do Not Pay them. I’m still attempting to end my subscription after closing my account several months ago. Hopefully Apple support can get this solved for me
  • Very disappointed

    By LTAWoo
    The app operates great. I didn’t run into any issues, operationally. Unfortunately you aren’t going to get much out of the app. All these 5 star reviews are false, created by programmers, just like a lot of the “locals” available. Specifically the “free” or cheaper priced profiles. I’m traveling to a single area for an entire month, contacted 7+ profiles multiple times, and didn’t get a single response. I’m guessing the cheaper profiles are to get you to buy the app. I can’t confirm they are bots. Probably those who wanted to use the app, but are required to create a profile showing they are “show-a-rounders” in their are. Don’t get to excited. The idea for the app is great, runs well, but I’m traveling alone. My budget is tight and can’t afford $20 to even $60 an hour to be shown around! Purchasing the app is $18 I won’t get back. Unless you have some serious money to burn paying a local to show you around, just talk to your hotel front desk or Airbnb owners. It would just have been nice to at least get a response... 😕
  • So many glitches

    By -BR
    There is a glitch where l get an email about new message and and l can open it up in safari, but message is nowhere to be found in the app. Also, l can’t delete certain messages from certain people.
