    "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 had many recommendations from friends who had used different sites but whenever I try to use another site, I always end up coming back to booking.com. Their interface is more user-friendly and they have booking deals you can't find anywhere else"
