  • Must have ap

    By meredithofthenorth
    I used this ap on a solo trip through Washington D.C. It gave me many great ideas outside of the ordinary historic buildings /museums / monuments. I would recommend this ap and look forward to using it again on my next adventure! Thank you for help!
  • 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!
  • This guide is different

    By lexie12345
    The difference is because the tour guides are locals who know and love the place. You get neat tidbits of unique information, and the guide's passion and personal connection to their own tour makes you love the place too. As opposed to the bored guide who is repeating for the 847th time 'and if you look to your left, ladies and gentlemen, you will see...' Now imagine this passion and local insight for (hopefully soon) every single city in the world! I love this app!
  • This app made my trip!

    By Jseret3
    Easy to use and very detailed. When headed to a place you've never been to before this app lays it all out for you. You don't have to stress about so much research because it's at your fingertips. I felt confident that I would explore all the highlights of a new country. I've already used it twice and plan to use it again!
  • Great app, even better service

    By blurreds
    The guides on the app are very “to the point” and precise in what should you do, as if you’ve got a local buddy to show you around. The guys behind the app keeps in touch and gives awesome service experience. This app really made my latest trip to SF and LA super fun and effective. Highly recommended.
  • Perfect for whatever you want to see

    By Gjp426
    We used the app for Washington DC. It provided great context and sound clips related to the different memorials and allowed us to visit them at our own time and order.
  • Perfect

  • Hidden gems in Iceland

    By ferjackson
    The guide was so helpful in navigating a foreign land. I was able to use the guide to locate hidden gems that were not listed in the regular published travel books. I recommend the Iceland Travel Scout 100%!
  • Excellent App!

    By Azzure88
    This app is great for people who want to experience places in different ways, it might be doing things that are off the beaten track but also not missing out on some popular things that are worth checking out. Their restaurant recommendations are also fantastic! The guys are trip scout offered me personal recommendations based on my last holiday and they went above and beyond in providing great service. I had a lovely trip!
