    "Pack your bags"

    No free wifi: the traveler's nightmare. Trusted review and advice site TripAdvisor presents the solution on a silver platter: downloadable Offline City Guides, including all the hotel, attraction, and restaurant information you already use from the website. Data roaming, begone!

    Yup, this series of guides will work totally offline if you take a moment to download the one(s) that interests you onto your device. Select from a huge offering of internationally fascinating cities, from New York to Paris to Tokyo to Marrakech. Taking the time to download the guide when you do have a wifi connection means that it works ultra-fast when you're out actually roaming the mean streets of Rome. You can actually update the app with your own reviews as well, just like on the website - they'll upload when you finally do hook up to a sweet source of wifi goodness.

    The guides include self-guided tours, which include both famous landmarks and local secrets. Using the GPS in your phone won't cost you a dime, so you can follow along the maps you've downloaded without a hitch and read extra info about la Sagrada Familia as you ogle its towers.

    TripAdvisor Offline City Guides are simple and intuitive to use, it's just as interactive as you need it to be, and it can potentially save you a heap of cash in roaming charges. They're also completely and totally FREE. Highly, highly recommended if you're headed for adventure!

    I need to choose again and again my options for restaurant types. Would be great to save it as default or as a saved search.

    While others try to push us the books we have the best and for free... best part?! It's always in our pockets!

    Really good app, so much info in one place and really accurate with reviews. We thought we would chance a restaurant that had a very average review, big mistake. Stick to the highest ratings!
