  • Awesome tool to build travel itinerary

    I have just returned from a solo trip to Jordan which was an unplanned mess which through luck turned into a great trip itinerary.  I am taking my kids to lanzarote and was looking to do some research before hand which is where your service comes in.
    Putting the trip dates in was simple enough and the suggested travel itinerary by this trip planner was reasonable, although I do not think it requested the age or interest composition of the group.
    The user reviews on the places were really useful and candid and were for the most part the deciding factor in whether a place remained on the itinerary or not.
    Removing items from the itinerary was simple which left a list of places worth presenting to my kids without fear of ridicule.
    Your service for me would be the gap TripAdvisor is lacking, you recommended many places of interest with minimal effort from me, getting the same list on there is like drawing teeth hence my chaotic Jordan trip.
    I would be happy to recommend your service as a complement to what others are already using, especially when it comes to local research and group planning. Overall it is a perfect itinerary maker for me.

  • I really love your trip planning platform!

    It made planning my trip easy and hassle free. It is extremely helpful especially preparing for visa application where embassies require detailed itineraries. Instead of researching on my own, I found the suggested trip itineraries are amazing!

    I like how its easy to drag and drop activities and also change date and times. I also like the suggested hotels and airlines. I guess the accommodation selection is good for normal tourists and travelers alike.02-Apr-2017

  • Useful group planner, just what i needed for my plans with friends

    I was looking for a trip planner to organize my plans with a friend for an upcoming trip and happily stumbled upon TripHobo! In my brief experience using it today, I really enjoyed the interface and thought it was user friendly. It was incredibly convenient to organize the multi-city plan I am making, see the commute time, have trip suggestions, and see the activities allotted.

    I was looking around a bit for things to do on the way since it will be a road trip and off the beaten path opportunities (e.g. white water rafting, hiking, horseback riding). I haven't booked accommodation since I still need to nail down dates and stuff. Some of the accommodation might be decided on the road! I did see the combination of Airbnb and hotels, which was a nice feature.

    In all I think this will actually be incredibly useful! I have tried other platforms in the past so I am excited about yours :) I have already sent my draft to my friend, and would definitely encourage others to try it in the future.04-Mar-2017

  • Free itinerary maker with Pro trip planning features

    I just started to use this itinerary make and so far I liked it a lot.
    This trip planning app really makes it easy to plan trips that include multiple cities and countries.
    I enjoyed being able to add my actual flight info and it automatically discovered train times between cities, pretty awesome.
    "highly likely" ( 10 ) I would recommend to friends and family. It gives me feel of using pro trip planning app.
    Just fyi... I started to use Google Trips but stumbled on to your site and am glad I did.25-Feb-2017

  • Will definitely use this trip planner for my next trip.

    I've not used it yet for my actual trip as we are planning to go away next year but below are my thoughts so far.
    • really like the ability to change when you leave the hotel/ attraction ect
    • love the percentage of your day used aspect and how long things take to do and to travel to
    • very easy to change the order when things have been added in
    Overall I think it's a fantastic travel planning app and will definitely be using it in the future for other trips. For anyone I know planning to travel I would say 10, highly likely to recommend this app.14-Feb-2017

  • The perfect trip planner for customizing my trips, my way.

    I used TRIPHOBO for the first time, and I like it very much. I was planning for a trip out of the country, and was looking around for alternatives to going through a travel agency tours.
    Here are the things that I find extremely helpful:
    1) Method of travels between points: this is very innovative! I like the fact that the app presented the user with different options (fly/drive, etc.)
    2) The choice for travel mode was efficient.  I like the fact that i am presented with the choices of fares, flight time, etc.
    I am still using the program, and am having lots of fun on it.  I will definitely be sharing this trip planner with friends and family.16-Feb-2017

  • Nice Itinerary planner

    The website and itinerary planner is amazing. I'm surprised I didn't hear about it before.

    The thing I like the most is the easy way in which you can select and arrange your destinations and also the "Suggest Plan" feature.
    I haven't booked my accommodations yet, I'd like to compare your suggestions with other booking services. I'm a big fan of HostelWorld, so integration with HostelWorld would be nice to me.
    (But maybe you already have it and I didn't realize it, I have to dig deeper into the accommodation feature).

    About the things to improve, the "Suggest Plan" sometimes leaves days empty (I mean, without any activities). It would be nice in that case that the app re-schedules the next flight automatically. But it's understandable in a beta feature.

    I would like also to be able to make copies of a trip or draft to be able to do small modifications and chose between similar trip alternatives.
    And finally, it would be nice to know the total cost of the trip adding transportation and accommodation costs. But overall this is an aweoms itinerary plan making tool for me.15-Nov-2016

  • Used trip planner first time and loving it!!!

    This was my first time using an online itinerary planner and I quite enjoyed the overall experience and will definitely use it on my next trip.

    The website itself is very user friendly. The only issue I had while using it would be the following:

    I had to alternate the initial departure time on our way back from the trip and by doing so I had to re-plan all the attractions I had just planned. It would be nice to be able to edit the "locked in" features when planning the days.

    I would also recommend being able to see your trip as a whole (not only one day at a time) on the map that way you can plan the best attractions onto one organized route (if it's already available I was unable to find it).

    I liked the attractions list, accomodations that would be my favorite feature as it gives you some ideas on where you can go and things not to miss.

    I did not review the hotels as I had already booked beforehand.

    I am very likely to recommend this site to my friends & family.28-Aug-2016

  • The Best amongst online trip planners ...

    I am planning a trip through Japan in October. I really appreciated the functionality of the trip planner. I had tried to use Google custom maps and other travel planners but ended up too frustrated with limitations of the functions. What I really like about TripHobo is the travel method suggestion with times for using public transport, live flight options, etc. I appreciate the recommendations for attractions as well, and the indications of whether things may be closed. The links to booking everything are very convenient.

    I did have some issues with the trip picking up the right dates. For my return, it wasn't able to process because of the shift in time zone "going back in time" to a date earlier than leaving. I also became frustrated that I couldn't change route methods and timing in the same interface as planning other stops. If the timing isn't perfect the ability to add things to the day is very limited. It would be nice to be able to override the hour to hour planning and just create a list of optional sights/attractions if desired. It would also be nice to be able to copy an event from one day to another. Last, I'd also like to easily see the entirety of my route on a map. Which I haven't been able to access so far.

    I am booking through my work travel system, but appreciated the ratings and hotel info provided for booking. If it was for personal travel, I would use that function.26-Aug-2016
