Great boat and swim tour
backroads boat trip on 6/22/2018
Miki was great. Picked us up with two boats to accommodate our group of 15 people. Each boat had a captain and the two boat followed each other. Reasonably priced. A good value and great fun. Niki even offered to send videos that he shot with his own GoPro.
Good, Bad, or Ugly; let the reader decide.
Melroy1144 on 6/22/2018
1st, navigation is difficult. 2nd, authors are human, and most of all emotional. Everyone is looking for a specific experience, and when it is not met that’s it, they throw adult temper tantrums. Reviews should be parsed into Pros and Cons, as all have some of each. TA has no control over snowflakes and unreasonable expectations. Take all with grain of salt and work to find more pros than cons! You will never be disappointed. In short, TA needs to revamp how reviews are written. Allow negative with suggestions for improvement.
Minam River Lodge, OR
E B F on 6/22/2018
The Minam River Lodge is a very unique destination. because it is located in the middle of a wilderness area, you have to hike 8 1/2 miles, ride on horseback, or fly in by a tiny plane. The tranquil newly built log cabins and tents are surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery where one can enjoy hiking, fishing, horseback riding or just relaxing. there is purposefully no Wi-Fi TV, phone, or Internet service. The staff, headed by Isaac Trout, the manager, made everyone feel very welcome. They could not have been more helpful in planning your activities and attending to your needs. Carl, the chef, produced exquisite, distinctive, and wholesome cuisine. This was understated elegance at its best! Ellen
Trip Advisor helps us find the best activities when we travel !
RandomTangent on 6/22/2018
We have found that when planning trips we find the best places to visit & fantastic tours & restaurants by checking trip advisor in advance of our trip . We have never been disappointed using Trip Advisor as our guide. As we plan our upcoming Caribbean cruise in October , we are looking at where to go. While we have been to these islands before, we have already found a couple new things that we had never heard of before . I can’t wait for our next adventure !
Obnoxious redirect, loses results if app closed
klamath533 on 6/22/2018
There is nothing more jarring than clicking a google result in safari and being yanked into this app, especially if you’re just looking for a quick forum answer to a question. I have not found a way to disable this. My phone already has an app to show web pages. It’s even advanced enough to keep track of multiple pages at once and if I reopen it later those pages are still there. Get rid of the redirect and this would be a great app for looking up nearby restaurants, etc.
Trip Advisor is my first stop
FL Escape on 6/22/2018
I use the trip advisor app for connecting and sharing with other adventures and travelers. I give it a 5 star, top rating because it’s based on customer’s opinions and experiences and management’s responses which I like to know. You can add places that aren’t on the app which helps the small businesses as well. I highly value the trip advisor app!
Sea Salt & a Happy Anniversary!
Auntie Eid on 6/22/2018
We arrived in St. Petersburg to celebrate our Anniversary. My husband and I had a taste for great seafood and looked up “Best Seafood Restaurants in St. Petersburg Beach”. Everything appeared to scream tourist! We decided to phone the concierge and described our don’t wants. Sea Salt! Located in a lovely shopping center which screamed our names. Decor and atmosphere was smart and lovely. Warm greetings and raised our eyebrows when the hostess realized that the table she was planning on seating us at was going to be a bit crowded. She then directed to a perfect secluded table. Good move! We were greeted with a warm welcome and attention. Then we are off...Menu was explained followed by their philosophy on “salt”. All I know is that from the bread to the Kumamoto oysters, to the crudos, Fried grouper cheeks, heirloom carrots with ramps and then the steamed Crab (the best I have had in ages)....all I can say was “heaven”. Lastly, we were presented with a lovely dessert of cotton candy then a chocolate sin. Overall, a definite “must go to” restaurant if in the area. Excellent!👍👏👏👏👏
We’re all critics
Ballccrusher23 on 6/20/2018
No body cares if trip was the best or worst ever. Are you a famous critic?? What gives you the right to share your experiences. Half of you are doctors they can’t cure colds!!! Or accountants that can’t do math!! TA is all based on advertising dollars spent by us poor entrepreneurs that so badly seek your approval. Frickin Joke #tomludwig
Don’t go anywhere without it
ShamusWoot22 on 6/20/2018
I don’t go anywhere without using the TripAdvisor app. It is my go to for finding the right dinner spot whether near or far. I still use it at home to find the right place based on what me and my lady are up for or visitors are in town. I simply love TripAdvisor and how user friendly it is.
Trip Advisor Gets a Thumb’s Up
Bubbyx5 on 6/20/2018
This is my go- to app to get info on everything related to travel. I think this app is easy to use.
Useful, but oddly not user friendly
rick bradley on 6/20/2018
The inability to edit reviews, like to correct a spelling error or add photos, is a major flaw. Reviews are useful
My go to for travel tips and deals
JustFoxxy on 6/19/2018
Very happy with trip advisor app. I rely on this community for tips deals and authentic experiences.
Great Tool
hall0618 on 6/19/2018
I use the app in every city or destination I go’s invaluable when you’re somewhere you’re not familiar with and looking for a good place to eat or something to do.
Not As Trustworthy As They Used To Be
Njbusyhousewif on 6/19/2018
Trip Advisor was my go to app for unbiased reviews for at least 11 years. As of recent, I posted a very honest, respectful review. It’s seems if you give too honest of a review, the site will not post it. Which now makes me hesitant with trusting the reviews being that users of the app or censored even with being professional, and respectful.
TripAdvisor’s Great Experience
Macmelody on 6/19/2018
TripAdvisor made available my search in looking for a cabin in an area that we visit every year. The search was simple, quick, and the deal was done. My stay was perfect and I will use TripAdviosr’s app in the future. I did upload pictures that failed to upload, but I’m certain that TripAdvisor’s app fixers are aware of the problem and will fix it.
Awesome app
Jeterco on 6/18/2018
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.
Ms_Jet on 6/18/2018
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
 on 6/18/2018
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: 👍
Big*Spender on 6/18/2018
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!
goldstmom on 6/18/2018
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.
karrot5272 on 6/18/2018
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. Thanks!!
More listings than Zomato
SolarSoar on 6/18/2018
Even for restaurants. The trip feature is helpful for future planning.
App updates getting worse
Hobss on 6/18/2018
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.
shopguyal on 6/18/2018
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
feldermanr on 6/18/2018
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
Rgb in nc on 6/17/2018
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.
Cavalry God on 6/17/2018
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?
J Deiwert on 6/17/2018
Would be much better if it allowed you to search for pet friendly hotels.
Love it
Catherweenie on 6/17/2018
I cannot live without this app during my international travels especially!
I use this almost exclusively
Toonarly on 6/17/2018
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
Frau Gundula on 6/16/2018
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
Cyzygy on 6/16/2018
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.
kidztested on 6/16/2018
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!
ctetdu75 on 6/16/2018
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
drjeffboston on 6/16/2018
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
Davew88ttt on 6/16/2018
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
Ragde Assolac on 6/16/2018
It is great info and easy to use
Flaviaps on 6/16/2018
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!
Samsoumitunes on 6/16/2018
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
gfoster102 on 6/15/2018
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!
Dae0408 on 6/15/2018
Love the app, wish I could figure out a way to see listings with the most reviews first.
Great App!
Blahblahblog on 6/14/2018
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!
FNF UP55555 on 6/14/2018
The website forces you to download the app to write reviews. I downloaded it just to give it 1 star.
Great app
Ryanalf on 6/14/2018
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!
WhitWa2011 on 6/14/2018
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
ehdudnkal on 6/14/2018
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
Theriot007 on 6/14/2018
I use this app every time we travel somewhere new. Even close to home!!!
ljmiller1987 on 6/14/2018
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
Lmaleke on 6/14/2018
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
Nanagig on 6/14/2018
Love it his app. Always use it while booking and traveling. I have always found it very accurate.
