  • Not for me

    There’s not many suggestions on here for restaurants. All the shops and activities you can get for free on a search. Feel like I wasted 12 dollars on an app I have no use for

    Worst app I’ve ever downloaded
  • *UPDATED* annoyed

    I wrote a review about a month ago about this app and how it didn’t work while I was on vacation. Their response team sent me back an email with a handful of excuses how it was my fault because I downloaded it wrong and asked if I would remove my review. I asked for a refund and he told me the only way I could get a refund was if I had PayPal. I received a total of SIX EMAILS from this guy asking me to remove my review. Not once did he take ownership for the app not working or gave me any other resolution other than to re-download it again (pay for it) and hope it works on my next vacation. He continually blamed me for downloading it incorrectly. By the last email this morning, it felt like harassment and I am so annoyed with this guy I could scream. Don’t download this app unless you are fully confident in your skills to DOWNLOAD AN APP or have the extreme patience and extra time to deal write emails back and forth for over a month about a $4 product and a bad review.
  • Best App for Local Favorites

    If you want to find a spot that is an off-the-beaten-path locals’ favorite OR, is a spot in your guide book, but described and recommended by a local, this should be your go-to App. And, if you like to travel to cities that are not visited (yet) by a lot of tourists, this App will also inspire you to discover those lesser-known spots!
  • Tbilisi

    Tbilisi is a chaotic city so having a guide to help me around the city was perfect. It’s also super connected and using my phone as a guide rather than a boring and heavy guide book made me feel less touristy. The best part is that it feels like a friend giving advice.

    This app is great for the suggested spots plus that it can all be used offline while traveling 😍

  • Most useful travel app!

    Having used a few guidebooks and turning up at recommended sights to find out they were closed a few years ago, this app turned out to be a lifesaver! Up-to-date with spots where the locals go, this is by far the best way to explore, no not explore, to get to know a city and go off the beaten path.
  • Perfect way to explore a city

    I first heard about SpottedbyLocals when I was studying abroad in Paris in 2009. I usually like to collect recommendations from friends before visiting a new city but in this day and age with social media, people end up seeing certain places on Instagram and Facebook and then just go where they see their friends go. This works sometimes but the problem is that you end up being directed to the same place that all the other people are going to which in effect ends up being touristy. If you’re like me and want to explore a city as someone who lives there would, then this is the app for you. The app itself is nothing special. Basic map with some highlighted spots but the content and curation is what is so key. We went to at least 10 of the recommended places in Mexico City and they were all spot on. You can’t get fair assessments of where to go on sites like Yelp and TripAdvisor anymore because their ranking systems have become biased towards the places that pay them. SpottedByLocals is a neutral assessment of amazing places in cities by the people who are proudest to live in them.

    I’ve tried three cities in the last month and they’ve all showed me interesting things I wouldn’t have otherwise found.
