    "TripAdvisor far surpasses Yelp when it comes to planning a trip. The userbase is very helpful, whereas I find people on Yelp to be cocky and condescending and too try-hard when it comes to humor. I recently used it to plan a backpacking trip across Europe. Every recommendation that I followed was a good one."

I was apprehensive at first, but after playing around on the site I was completely blown away. I would recommend the site to anyone looking to find a great deal on lodging, especially international locations."
