Online Reviews By The World’s Grumpiest Travellers

Open Jaw

TripAdvisor reviews can be quite helpful, if you figure out how to read the good and bad and seek out the things that matter to you.

But they can also be quite entertaining, especially if you focus on the one-star reviews. A writer for the UK’s Telegraph did just that, and found some wonderfully awful ratings of iconic places.

Without further ado, here are a few choice ones. You can read the whole article here.

The Eiffel Tower

“More like the Awful Tower.”

“The view is OK. If you like views.”


“It is just a bunch of rocks.”

Central Park

“Smells like urine. Overcrowded and too many falafel carts.”

Colosseum, Rome

“There’s nothing inside!”

Pyramids at Giza

“You can see them in pictures. It’s a lot more enjoyable.”

Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

“What a monstrosity!”

Grand Canyon

“Went there from Las Vegas for a few hours. Nothing special.”
