Our agents have been hard at work keeping up with current online reviews on attractions our groups are interested in traveling to, ensuring that each location is as safe and fun as it sounds. This is an easy thing to keep an eye on in today's social media savvy world, with such websites as Yelp, TripAdvisor, and Foursquare connecting reviewers and reviewees in an instant.
Today you can go out to eat, stay at a hotel, or just head to a new bar and write a review about it online right afterward, giving future guests a heads up on the true pros and cons of each place. Sometimes, however, those true pros and cons can be quite hilarious and not really very helpful at all.
This is not a list of helpful travel tips you can find online, this is a list of funny travel reviews found online by our agents. Enjoy!
