Tourbar is a niche meeting app which is especially designed for travelers to meet abroad as travel buddies or a travel partner. Travelers going abroad may also locate a native to act as their tour guide around the city.
Tourbar is a great app for people around the world to connect and meet. Everything sounds good on paper but what’s the catch?
In conclusion, Tourbar is an app that looks good on paper but is shown to be sketchy in regards to the user interface.
Though the original purpose was for travellers, the app has been misused as a method of scamming other people or for users to simply market themselves.
Personally I would not recommend this app as there are better options in the market.
How To Use
Signing up for Tourbar r is extremely easy to do so. The app allows users to register for an account via social medias such as Facebook, Vk, Twitter, Google Plus, Mamba, or simply by e-mail.
Next, users are asked to fill in basic details of themselves. Allowing access to location helps other users to know where you currently are.
After that, users can click on the circle icon with a pencil on top. This allows you to curate your own profile for others to see.
Users are encouraged to upload more photos of themselves to appeal to other users.
Users are required to verify their account via Photo Verification, ID Verification or Phone Verification. Information submitted will be sent to be reviewed, which will take approximately a few hours.
Based on location, travellers who have planned to come to your city will be shown at the top of the search.
The blue text indicates the location where they want to travel to, which you can view in detail when you click into their profile.
Profiles that appear on your feed can also be filtered.
Users can view detailed information about Travellers that they are interested in and their respective travel plans.
At the bottom of a profile, you can decide if a profile is legitimate by whether or not their profile has been verified.
Besides that, you can also view how active a person is online and when they started using this app.
Besides the Travellers page, users can also search for more users from the Search page.
Users can like a person’s account by adding them to their Favourites by pressing the star button. (Premium membership allows users to conceal their identity and only to be viewed by Favourited profiles.)
You can start a chat by pressing the chat bubble icon.
Basic functions on TourBar is free but with some limitations imposed on users. When you first join the app, there is a 7-day free trial to try. But users should be careful and remember to cancel their membership as the app relies on an auto-payment system.

The average review on Site Jabber for TourBar is 5 out of 5 stars, whereas the rating for Android App Store and iTunes is 4 out of 5 stars. Albeit the high rating, when you scroll down the reviews are not as great.
Users have commented on the fact that customer support service is quick to reply when it comes to user complaints and resolves problems that they may have within a short amount of time.
Some users have complaint that the app will meddle with your personal information, such as changing your profile information without any permission given. There have also been reports of fake accounts on the app, which luckily will be removed when reported to customer service.
Besides that, TourBar has been said to have minimal to no function if you do not pay for premium. For example, users have been unable to initiate a conversation without paying for premium. On top of that the fees for premium membership is said to be expensive, given that the users on the site are mostly from third world countries.
After searching through the app’s user list, there is a vast majority of male users that are from Middle East and female users from Ukraine or Russia.
How to Sign Out
Users can simply log off from their account by going to the Settings option, scrolling to the bottom of the page and selecting Logout.
