Ratings and Reviews
I used ViaHero to plan my family trip to Colombia and it was amazing! My hero made it super easy to get exactly what we wanted (and more) out of the trip without any of the work of planning it myself. The app kept everything organized, including our reservations and detailed itinerary. We looked at it every night to see what the next day held.
Please improve app functions.
I created my account and reset my password (online). I had to create a new account to use the app on my iPhone. Now there are two different accounts and of course they do not sync. The is nothing on the app. I tried to see if I did something wrong and looked for support online. On the website’s solution page IT DOES EXPLAIN the only feature available on the app is uploading the finalized version of the guidebook. At least I know it wasn’t me but it would be nice if the app was as functional as the website.
Easy to use
Super easy to use app, and I really liked using Via Hero to help plan our trip to Cuba. Definitely worth the price for me to have a stress free vacation!
