  • Started great but glitches and won’t download audio

    The app started out great but after purchasing the London package, I found that the map view (supposedly available to view without cell data) flickered in and out when trying to view individual sites. Then I found that the audio guides to each site stopped working. I could listen again to descriptions I’d already listened to. But no new ones could be listened to. Even when I returned to WiFi these remained unavailable. I’d seriously consider holding off until these glitches are corrected.

    UPDATE Jun 14th: Thank you to Tripscout for your response. I appreciate hearing you are working on making it easier to communicate. For point #1: I wish I could upload screenshots to show that even today I still see listed at your web page for the Krakow tour that an audio tour is a benefit so I am keeping my rating the same. For point #2: it is great to be reminded that my credit card is safe. ORIGINAL REVIEW I am looking for an audio tour of Krakow and found TripScout lists one at their website in their web page for Krakow. I was directed to download the app, and was excited see positive reviews. But after downloading the app, then paying for the Krakow tour, the app says there is no audio guide for Krakow. There is no contact info anywhere to directly reach TripScout, so I am left to ask here: why do you list an audio guide, take my money, then tell me there is no such guide? It now worry that I have been scammed and will have to monitor my credit card transactions. I did not want to write this, but I see no other way to 1) try and reach TripScout; and 2) warn others. I will update my review if I hear back from them. In the meantime I am out $$, and still in need of an audio guide.
  • Total scam and trash. Waste of your time

    It looks like it’s a free app, but once installed you can’t see anything until you pay $9.99 and you can’t see what you are actually buying. I’m uninstalling this useless app. So disappointing.
  • A Must Have!

    TripScout is the perfect app for a vacation OR a quick weekend getaway. Even a business trip that you can sneak a few hours in to explore! Their map is amazing and gives you an instant sense of your surroundings. I love knowing if there are any nearby places to see or eat too! I can’t believe I ever traveled without it!

    I used Loungebuddy to download a free map and when I signed up later the map was gone and they wanted 4.99 to get it again. Not user friendly.

    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!
