  • Outstanding

    By Jd1011
    Thanks for producing such an excellent, high-quality app
  • Extremely useful

    By tammeri
    Must have and now encompasses all the major locales I travel to. Has helped me innumerable times. Just needs an iPad app to be perfect.
  • Travel revolution

    By Club bennay
    This app changed the way I planned trips, and made everything accessible in a beautiful way. Great job!
  • Great app!!!!

    By carlosd999
    Really good app. Helped us while in Venice.
  • First to Europe!

    By tanner X
    Going to Europe in 10 days and looking through this app has given me so many great ideas with the itinerary!! I’m thrilled that so much information is readily available, and not to mention the whole app runs smoothly and is incredible aesthetically pleasing. kudos!!👌🏻
  • Always use this app

    By mrsrohr
    We’ve been to many cities and constantly use this app. It’s extremely helpful when planning out your day or walking around aimlessly. It shows you nearby food, places to stay, and sites you may not realize are right next to you or what monument that is. Downside is it doesn’t have ALL restaurants and hotels.
  • A great resource

    By texmessage
    I especially love the downloadable maps feature. You never know what kind of cell coverage or WiFi you’ll get, and it’s much less nerve wracking to have the info right there with you.
  • Good start

    By RePhSt
    I’ve had the opportunity to travel around the world and I’ve used another pocket size book/guide (won’t mention name) and I love every bit of it, before my trip, during my trip and even after. However they didn’t have the book I needed for my next trip (Japan). My local Barnes and noble recommend Lonely Planet and so far I’m impressed. I leave in a few weeks and I’m feeling confident about having the book and app for my trip. Any questions that I may have had, lonely planet has answered already. Questions that I didn’t even think about they already answered. Thank you!
  • Very good content, UX can be improved

    By Drawsomethingmaniac
    I really love this app. Lonely planet has such great content and I constantly find myself going to places that are not filled with tourists but where locals actually hang out. There are excellent off the beaten path places and wonderful food options. For that I’m eternally grateful! The only complaint I have is for the map functionality - since I constantly struggle with data when I travel, I always download the offline map, and that’s when it gets tricky. Sometimes the map doesn’t respond until much later, sometimes it crashes the app, and more frustrating is when it doesn’t tell me which direction I’m headed. I use this offline map called Planet Earth to supplement when I navigate offline which have worked out fine. But it would be so much better if the Lonely Planet app can nail that aspect too. Thank you for the hard work and I am a huge fan!
  • Best app for travelers, missing minor adjustments

    By shb103
    I absolutely love the LP app — it’s clear, concise, beautiful, and packed with info for travelers. One thing, however, drives me insane: My lists of what I want to see in a place. Minor adjustments would make the app incredibly more useful on the go. 1. Once I select the attractions I wanna see, please let me sort my list based on alphabetical, by neighborhood, or by themes. 2. Instead of adding and deleting things from my list, how about a “done” option with private notes and photos, so at the end of the day we really end up with a feeling of mission accomplished. 3. Use AI to see the sites I’ve added and suggest best routes for walking, driving, or ride pub transportation, tweeked for how much time i want to spend sightseeing. Suggest other top sites and viewpoints I may not have included on my original list. Looking forward to seeing changes coming to the app! All th best Solly
