Title: TripAdvisor Usefulness Rant!
Post by: ccrain on July 10, 2018, 07:19:59 AM
I am getting more and more tired of TripAdvisor page layouts and information. They now pack the top lists with excursions or tours or something that they can sell you via TripAdvisor or Viator (a trip advisor company).

It used to be that a tour company would be listed, in the order of their reviews, and their website and contact information would be available to go VFR direct to them for information and tickets.  Now the top listing are the "recommended" listings with the top rated listing to follow later and there is no VFR direct information because they want you to buy direct via TripAdvisor. You have to scroll down and find the company on the later individual lists to find the links to their website to see what the prices really are and in a lot of cases the upper tier tours are from non-local companies. It can be very frustrating and confusing.

Now I have done it both ways. Bought from TA, Viator or scrolled down and went to the website, but this whole revamping of the pages is turning TA into a purely shop for their tours site...

Rant Over...
