Being a smart traveler means that you should always compare your options--whether you’re deciding where to sleep, shop, dine, or go to amuse yourself for a while--from both monetary and satisfactory standpoints.

However, never settling for second best may prove to be more difficult when you’re off in a strange land with a language you don’t understand, especially when you’re not one to trust a meager hotel review book.

This is where TvTrip would come to your rescue by serving up virtual tours of hotels and its amenities. Instead of regular 360-degree pictures, TvTrip provides a walk-through of the hotel it is rating through a guest’s point of view.

Another thing that would come in handy would be the deals offered for the most popular hotels that TvTrip reviews in its videos, which is much better information than any guidebook can provide you with.

TvTrip is free to use and peruse, and while they can only be seen through your computer/laptop so far, the next big thing that we hope is possible would be real-time video tours viewable right through your smartphones.
