  • The Travel Guidebook Everyone Should Own

    By yes mike
    TripScout turns hours of research into minutes for anyone accustomed to doing lots of planning in order to truly experience a travel destination. I use their guides as the primary source for acclimating myself to any new place I visit!
  • Rip off/refund requested

  • Not happy

    By Nicknamejsjdjchdjks
    Would like to download a particular city... paid for it but it won’t let us. Call iTunes/App Store and 50 min later they refunded us our money. Went to try and purchase it again and it won’t let us! Would have contacted this app directly but now way to contact them. Please fix this problem. It looks like it would have been a good app.
  • Iceland

    By jakecblb
    I have only used this for Iceland. I was expecting much more detail. This seems to only cover the major landmarks and destinations, leaving out many other significant points of interest. The information on each place is very limited with only one picture provided and a short description. For $9.99 I was expecting a lot more information and details. I wish I could have my money back because this is useless to me. I’ll just stick to trip advisor and my Lonely Planet book which actually has useful details to guide me along my trip and cost about the same.

    I downloaded a map and paid but I can’t access it!
  • Not worth a penny

    By egqwgfqwegr
    Scam product For $7.99 this has zero useful info Don’t waste your time Says audio but does not exist for Paris at least
  • Not free

    By JoeLee
    Says it’s free with in-app purchases. But you can’t do anything for free except look at all the tours you then have to buy. No free sample tours or preview. You have to immediately pay $5 or more and hope the city tour is good. And the city I wanted had no audio included which isn’t as useful if you want to explore the city.
  • Iceland

    By Pete Pajor
    I can only speak to the Iceland guide. I bought the app as part of my trip planning and thought it would be helpful for navigation. I found the content had a lot of gaps and felt kind of random. Sites that were included linked to nonexistent third party content. Ended up using google maps for both content (checking out reviews and posted pics) and navigation as cell/data service was fine. Cross referenced stuff using trip advisor and created starred places and was good to go.
  • Super fun and easy to use!!

    By paigerrzzz
    I love this app because it shows exactly where so many cool spots are that I would never have found by myself. The map is also super easy to use. I bought a map for my most recent vacation and I’m glad I did because it definitely made my trip more memorable
