TripAdvisor was founded in 2000 and in its more than 18 years of existence, it has become one of the go-to websites for travelers, diners and anyone looking for information on a destination. The American company's website shows reviews of hotels, restaurants and other travel destinations. The reviews on TripAdvisor allow travelers to weight up their options and make decisions based on the experiences of others.
TripAdvisor is a user-generated content website. Therefore, the reviews come from actual users who have experienced the hotels and restaurants profiled. The idea behind TripAdvisor is a good one because tourists can get recommendations or they can be warned about places not to go. However, some on of the reviews produced by users should be taken with a grain of salt. Some reviews have been found to be untrue while others are based on one person's experiences.
