Don’t waste your time and money

This app sounds like a good idea. I tried it and came to the conclusion that the profiles and the reviews are fake. It simply doesn’t work and it’s a rip off.

Went well

Down at times but made sure to connect in other ways. Local was great and helpful!

Great App

I used Showaround for my first time in Tokyo and had a great experience. The app works well (messages send/receive quickly with no issues) and I met up with a great tour guide.

My go-to travel tool

I use Showaround nearly every tine I travel, even if I think I know a city or country. The friends you meet are amazing and there is no way an outsider can find the hidden gems your hosts seem to always know about. Thanks for creating it.

Very silly to charge a fee to search, should be commission based after a deal is reached and taken from the proceeds the guide will make.

Works great. Wish I knew this sooner!

Been using it a few times as my parents are visiting me in Thailand and Bali for a few weeks. Great to be able to quickly book a local to help me show them around! App works just fine.

I love ShowAround! It’s definitely useful when traveling to another country solo! I am leaving my trip with a new friend thanks to ShowAround. I definitely recommend!

Great App in Europe

I have only used the app for one tour so far in Budapest Hungary with tour guide Agnes and it was amazing. I had some reservations about the idea of a local showing us around but it was truly a great experience. I’ll definitely have to use this service again. Sure beats the sterile hop/off busses or huge tour groups.
