Is this AI travel assistant worth using
It can be a chore to plan a vacation. As someone who enjoys trip planning, I can say this. Searching for cheap flights and things to do, creating a trip itinerary, getting visas, and purchasing gear. The list is endless.
Planning a vacation, whether it is for two weeks or more than two months, takes time and effort. Most people spend hours researching a trip, reading travel blogs, and looking at social media.
AI is the latest buzzword that companies are using to streamline this process.
AI has enabled travelers to take advantage of more travel tools.
GuideGeek is the best tool I’ve used.

Does it work?
I wanted to see if the program worked. Here’s a quick look at what GuideGeek looks like:
Since I just moved back to NYC, I decided to ask it for some suggestions and see what it has to say. I am familiar with NYC, so I was curious to know if the answers it gave were BS or true.
It gave more than just generic information. It asked for more information so that it could tailor its suggestions better to my travel style.
Ask about museums that focus on history and sushi restaurants.
The colonial history sites I asked for (are things I have read and researched myself).
Now that we have covered food history let’s talk about sushi.
Some high-end sushi restaurants are not very affordable. We’ll see if we can find something more reasonable.
This is a great place to start for visitors. I am a sushi snob, so I can’t be impressed!)
You can ask about anything you want (including places to eat and things to do), and each answer will take only a few moments.
