Awesome app 5/5
I use Trip Advisor to plan my trips frequently. I use it to find activities and restaurants everywhere I go. I truly enjoy this app and highly recommend it to others.
Ever since we started travelling many years ago, we always depend on trip advisor on its review, suggested hotels, flights and tours. The community are very engaging, answering your queries and most reviews are indeed helpful.
Good app but hard to make a review 3/5
Good app to hear opinions of hotels but it doesn’t work well when you try to post a review. First, I can’t edit my review which is really stupid. People change their minds after their next visit/visits or notice typos after posting. I should be able to edit! Second, I wanted to post some beautiful pictures of the view from my hotel window but it doesn’t show my latest pictures from my camera roll. Also the app won’t let me select some of the pictures I wanted to post even though they were showing. ??
iOS App: 👎 | Platform: 👍 2/5
TripAdvisor is a trusted travel source for me; definitely one of my favorite tools in my travel toolbox. If this was just for the platform, I would rate it a 4 or 5.
However, this is a rating for the app.
I find it very frustrating that I cannot copy the text from the app. Once I’ve researched something I cannot, say, copy the name of a destination from the app to my agenda or note app. I cannot sélect any text from the app, so I end up logging into the website instead.
It’s like LITERALLY a read-only app!
Most useful app ever! 5/5
We use this app all the time at home, when traveling and especially when planning a trip. I believe we have even booked a few trips with the app. No other app with such honest opinions and pictures!
Works well. 4/5
I really like this app, and if I could make any improvements, I would create a couple of new food categories for Cajun/creole and southern/soul food.
More listings than Zomato 4/5
Even for restaurants. The trip feature is helpful for future planning.
App updates getting worse 1/5
This is my third review of TA in several years. See below for the evolution: app keeps getting bigger (145MB now). Google integration for maps is now gone. And uploading pictures is a random thing. Sometimes you can sometimes you can’t (I have been trying to do so today for more than 5 times and was about to update the app until I saw reviews with the same problem). Another star taken and it has become a 1 Star app. I still use it but I’m more likely to use other services like Foursquare or Zomato.
Old review, from the year before: Tripadvisor needs to start optimizing code. 128 MB (that's even before downloading any guides) is getting ridiculous.
Old review: Very welcomed integration with google maps app. What it is missing now, removed from previous versions is filtering capabilities by distance and ranking (simultaneously). I usually whant to find the best options around me, not the fast food joints. So either by stars or by ranking I want to restrict restaurants within a distance. Current filter by price or type is useless to me (let's be honest, price indications are nothing to be trusted). Better filtering capabilities and It would become a 5 star app.
My travel and dining barometer. 5/5
TripAdvisor is my go to for lodging and dining. I have never had a bad experience in a well rated establishment. Thanks for the service provided by this app.
Tried the rest stayed with best 5/5
We tried others and find those whose opinions align more with us use Trip Advisor. We’ve gotten good ideas to help us make our choices, and we’ve been able to help many other people as well. I’ve reached new levels because we travel the world so much, and enjoy reviewing places to eat and sleep and visit across the backroads of America and the hot spot cities along the way. Thanks
My go to source 5/5
By Rgb in nc
Trip Advisor is my go to source for reviews about accommodations, places and restaurants and reviews from others.
Every time I travel, and sometimes at home. 5/5
By Cavalry God
I love this app, I use it wherever I go to find places to eat and things to do. I return the favor by posting reviews everywhere I go... EXCEPT when at home. (I live in Vegas, and honestly, we want the tourists to mostly stay in the tourist areas. If you come to town to visit relatives, they may take you off the strip for a good meal, but the town is laid out for you to easily get back and forth in the tourist areas, and to be able to do ANYTHING you want while there, and for the locals to be able to avoid tourists by avoiding the tourist areas).
I have traveled the world, this app has helped me out on four continents, didn’t get out and about on the fifth (work stopover), haven’t been to Australia or Antarctica yet.... and honestly, I don’t think this app will help much when I do get to Antarctica..... but it helps EVERYWHERE else.....
Pet Friendly Hotels? 3/5
By J Deiwert
Would be much better if it allowed you to search for pet friendly hotels.
Love it 5/5
I cannot live without this app during my international travels especially!
I use this almost exclusively 5/5
Love this ap. Wish people would include photos of menus when practical, that is always a plus because some need to know what they are serving and prices for each item and some places don’t put the actual menu on their websites. Most if not all reviews are legit and are actually very helpful in deciding where to go in a place one may have not been before. I like the way you can zero in on places nearby also. I enjoy writing reviews myself and use trip advisor as my primary review site. See my reviews at “Steve Enderle” on TripAdvisor.
Great App 5/5
By Frau Gundula
Before planning any type of hotel stay or activity, I wouldn’t dream of finalizing my plans without checking Trip Advisor first. Even if I’ve been to a particular city or hotel before, I always learn something new from my fellow travelers’ reviews. This app is a travel tool I refuse to live without!
Good app, some changes needed 4/5
I use this app and the website for almost all my travel plans as I still find the reviews very useful (and I write many reviews). But, I have noted some problems. There is still no portrait view for the app, particularly useful when writing reviews. Still no edit option after submitting the review. Newer problems: what is with the “best value” rating? What does that mean? And why am I forced to look at the pinned “favorite review” of the venue (i.e., the review that the hotel itself liked the most) at the top of the review list even if from a year ago? What do I care about the hotel’s favorite review? Unfortunately, these changes may point to an increase of bias on the site which is sad.
I use to use trip advisor for everything all my trips, hotels etc. However now things have changed, I recently tried to schedule a flight from Sacramento California to New York City and they told me repeatedly had no partnered flights unless I wanted to fly to Newark New Jersey. The key there is partnered flights - I don’t want to fly to another state when my relatives live in New York, not to mention the fact that New York has 2 major airports La Guardia and JFK - I’m so disappointed that they push sponsored results rather then all flights and let you choose.
Not Convenient or Easy to use! 3/5
I was trying to book a flight for my daughter to fly home because her Aunt passed. It took me nearly 20 minutes to book the flight. The process took way to long just for a flight. While booking, I had to scroll past several things that are not needed or wanted. Not likely that I’ll use this app again, and will not recommend it. If I wasn’t trying to rush to find a flight, I would have spent a little longer searching for a good app!
Used to be better 3/5
Trip advisor gave you choices based on reviews . Now it’s based on best deal according to their booking engine. I liked the old version better before the business model over powered the old model. Let’s face it they want to make money by influencing your choices
My travel toolkit 5/5
I travel for a living. I use Tripadvisor several times every day to choose restaurants, to check out hotels, and to find things to do in the evening if time permits. It is an indispensable tool.
Time saver, easy to use and comprehensive 5/5
By Ragde Assolac
It is great info and easy to use
Ever since I started using Tripadvisor on my trips, I've never wasted time at the wrong places anymore. I not only use it in every trip I go but I also recommend it to all my friends.
ATTENTION: Read in the help section! 2/5
Cannot edit reviews once submitted. (Means you can’t change your mind!). You can only remove ONE TIME your review and submit a second one 1 time maximum for the same Place. (Means if the place changed for better or worse you cannot adapt your advice). This is not a flexible app. And i have noticed that reviews are not accurate and do not reflect really the value or rating of Hotels i have visited. Hope they will change for better. Meanwhile, i will not give my opinion on which Trip Advisor is making its business if they don’t give me the FREEDOM to modify it and to adapt it whenever i wish and as much times as needed.
Amantani Island Rural Homestay, Lake Titicaca 5/5
There are no hotels on Amantani Island but there is an excellent program where small groups of 4-6 travelers stay in the guest quarters of family compounds. We were picked up from individual hotels in Puno and transported to the departure area for boats on Lake Titicaca. Our boat had approximately 30 passengers and an excellent Spanish and English speaking guide. We spent several hours on one of the Uros floating Islands where there was a very interesting demonstration of how the floating islands are constructed and maintained. Then we continued by boat to Amantani Island where we were met by host families and taken to their compounds. After a late lunch with the family, we had free time when most participants hiked to the ancient temple at the top of the island in order to view the sunset. The path led through terraced fields where people were still working; hand labor is the rule on these picturesque small farms. After sunset and dinner with the family, we were all dressed in traditional costumes for a wonderful dance party at the community center. A very professional local band played traditional music and everyone, young and old, locals and guests, participated in vigorous and joyous line dances.
The next morning, after breakfast with the host family, we all met again at the boat for the trip to Taquile Island. We climbed the hill to the town square where there were shops selling hats, gloves, sweaters and other items knit by men of the community. Note that on Amantani, it is the women who knit and offer their work for sale! We then walked along a beautiful cliff above the lake to the other end of the Island where we had a delicious lunch on a terrace overlooking Titicaca. Passengers from another boat had started at that end of the island; we passed them midway so visitors were evenly distributed with no crowds. I learned that it is the elders of the island who decide on the restaurant and menu for each group.
This is a unique local experience at a very affordable price. Best of all, it was not necessary to be part of a tour group—ideal for solo travelers.
Wouldn’t travel without it! 5/5
Love the app, wish I could figure out a way to see listings with the most reviews first.
Great App! 5/5
I love this app for both finding sites of interest and writing reviews. It’s very easy to navigate. Also, I love how some people actually rated their actual vacation stays here in the reviews rather than the app itself! Hilarious!
By FNF UP55555
The website forces you to download the app to write reviews. I downloaded it just to give it 1 star.
Great app 5/5
Used trip advisor on our trip to Virginia. It worked great. We were able to scout and find hotels and restaurants to our liking. I will continue using trip advisor. I appreciate the way the restaurant categories are organized.
Great App! 5/5
We have found the BEST places to eat while on our adventures using Trip Advisor. The reviews and recommendations are always helpful.
Awful exploitation of monopoly 1/5
I used to use tripadvisor a lot and it was far better. Now they’re big and a monopoly they are useless. It is so hard to navigate. There is no map!!! I remember when they got rid of the map. They promised it was only temporary whilst they were updating software. The reviews are misleading. Either a place is wonderful or terrible. There is no nuance. I guess that’s what happens when the mob takes over. I’ve dumped it as a regular tool like almost all social media.
Great App 5/5
I use this app every time we travel somewhere new. Even close to home!!!
Love this app. I’ve motorcycled through 42 of the lower 48 states and I use this in every city that I visit. Great for finding local restaurants and attractions. When planning trips, also use to check out what’s exciting to see along the route. Always helpful.
Works fine and helpful 4/5
Works fine and helpful thus far but still needs a hard copy Lonely Planet (or any other guides to your liking) once your battery is out of juice
Always a great source of information 5/5
Love it his app. Always use it while booking and traveling. I have always found it very accurate.
Frustrating to use 2/5
By D Humphrey
After all these years it’s still a pain in the butt. It’s hard to search for allergen friendly restaurants nearby. It’s too hard to find ratings when searching. I’ve submitted over 100 reviews and still have to search for the button to write a review.
Great app 5/5
By Abdullah 00
Very helpful 👍
Great app 4/5
By Solaris love
Love the app. I can easily write reviews for different places as well as use the app to research reviews. App is easy to navigate as well as post reviews. Never had issues with the app crashing
Mobile app has no way to delete recent searches 2/5
By The Leopard 4
Too many places listed in the “where to” area.
Where are the top 10 things to do? 1/5
It used to be easy to find top attractions. Now it’s “buy this tour”, “buy this hotel”. No different from Expedia.
I trust Trip Advisors reviews when checking on trips or restaurants. Never used them to book anything but maybe in the future.
App is nice easy to understand 4/5
App reviews are not hard to do when the app actually works. This app works.
Trip Advisor is the go-to app for reviews before we ever book any trip details. Have trusted the reviews and are very satisfied not only with their services but also the reviews.
Friendly and easy to use 5/5
App is great and helps when I need to find places like restaurants, hotels, airlines. I use it all the time
Never leave home without it 5/5
We love TripAdvisor it allows us to always seem like a local when visiting spots. Of course you need to take some of the reviews with a grain of salt but overall crowd knowledge seems to work out.
Traveling all over 5/5
By Sweet Robbie
This app is great for suggestions!
The best tool ever for planning a vacation or picking a restaurant!! 5/5
I love this app and website. TripAdvisor makes planning a trip SO easy. It’s also my go-to source for picking the perfect restaurant. Also - the app is easy to use and makes it easy to book tickets for tours, excursions, etc. Best ever - thanks!!!
Don’t love TripAdvisor Any More 1/5
TripAdvisor used to be a great tool. But, now it seems that all they want to do is reserve a hotel room for you, and get a cut out of it. It’s hard to find information on the app now, and I’m not even sure if that information is very accurate anymore.
Great when it works 4/5
Has led us to great dining experiences but sometimes cannot get location despite good WiFi.
This is TRIP advisor so they need to fix this.
Also locks up iPod when signal is weak and is nearly impossible to use to look at a hotel by name.
Use trip advisor all the time! 5/5
Love this app for help with restaurants and hotels! Constantly looking at other travelers reviews and pictures. Always careful to read reviews objectively!
Trip Advisor is very helpful 5/5
Using Trip Advisor is very helpful, especially when I'm in a town or state that I don't know, it sets me in directions that I might not have gone if it wasn't for real people posting real comments about your surrounding location. I have found myself using it more and more. Two BIG thumbs up to Trip Advisor and the people that take the time to post their comments!
