  • Lonely planet is the best tour companion

    By Klh-mo
    Lonely planet provides the best tips for truest discovering the unique aspects of a city rather than a typical tourist view. Love the city guides.
  • Good

    By dbmmint
    I like it ! But I want it have more towns information.
  • Know before you go

    By MohinderSingh
    I always like to know the city to as much as I can before visiting it and this app helps me do that.
  • Hong Kong savior!

    By Fabio Costa
    This guide was a very helpful on a recent trip with my daughter to Hong Kong. Loads of tips, great restaurant recommendations and sightseeing. Just wished the map and location tool was precise and more responsive.
  • Best travel app I’ve ever tried!

    By Joha789751
    I discovered this app on the last day of our trip to Vienna, I only wish I had found it sooner, it saves the effort of having to use multiple apps to find things to do/see, great places to eat, and how to get around in a new city!
  • Lonely Planet rocks!

    By WetSocks!
    This app is my favorite planning tool, very chic design, useful features, great information (as always from lonely planet). I like the vote for new cities feature too. Would really like to see some kind of planning feature, maybe a way to add bookmarked things to an external calendar, or ideally have an internal planner just to connect dates and locations. Travel can be tough for places like Japan where you may be in three or four different regions throughout the trip so coordinating by the day would be great. You could then share and modify the plan and that would be great! Still love it!!
  • Awesome, BUT... no pictures!

    By biggsnwedge
    Thank you for providing these free guides, I love them. But please add pictures! Maybe not downloaded along the guides, but available while on WiFi.
  • Great Tool for Travel

    By Wava Lee
    Information is spot on.
  • Really fun

    By 0529maddy
    This brings the idea of a vacation , the hope , closer to those of us who canning t just get up and go but have to plan a little closer to reality, love it
  • Very handy and easy

    By Wayne_Sanderson
    I first downloaded the app for a trip to Amsterdam and Copenhagen in July 2018. Its quite simple to download the area maps and navigating through the features is easy.
