How I used AI to Travel Plan:

Believe it or not, I literally use AI to plan a month-long trip to Portugal in seconds.

I tested GuideGeek with some of the more complex planning elements of our Portugal trip and was quite impressed.

For example, when I asked GuideGeek to ”help me plan a 4 week trip across Portugal, starting and ending in Lisbon”, this is the super helpful answer I got:

”Absolutely! A 4 week trip to Portugal sounds incredible. Here is a suggested itinerary:

Week 1: Lisbon (3 nights), Sintra (1 night), Cascais (2 nights), Lagos (2 nights)

Week 2: Lagos (2 nights), Tavira (2 nights), Faro (1 night), Evora (2 nights)

Week 3: Coimbra (2 nights), Douro Valley (3 nights), Porto (3 nights)

Week 4: Aveiro (1 night), Nazaré (2 nights), Obidos (1 night), Silves (3 nights), Lisbon (1 night)

This itinerary allows you to explore some of the top destinations in Portugal, including the vibrant cities of Lisbon and Porto, the stunning coastline of Lagos and Faro, and the charming towns of Obidos and Tavira. You’ll also have the opportunity to sample the country’s famous Port wine in the Douro Valley.

If you have any specific interests or activities you’d like to include in your itinerary, I can definitely tailor this to suit your preferences.”


I then asked GuideGeek for the ”most Instagrammable photo spots and the best restaurants” in each of the locations it recommended, and was equally impressed with the instantaneous response:

”Sure thing! Here are a few of the most popular Instagrammable photo spots and best restaurants in each of the locations you mentioned:

A Word of Caution

At this point, I feel as though I should quickly mention a couple of downsides of using AI to help you plan your adventures.

Firstly, AI will never be able to give you its personal recommendations and real life feedback (which is where bloggers are invaluable!) For example, on my most recent trip to Lisbon, I discovered that the Time Out Market is now extremely hectic and far less enjoyable than I remember it, due to the intense crowd situation. This kind of insider insight is not really something an AI travel planner is built to advise on.

Also, as amazing as AI travel planners are, this is still an emerging area and sometimes errors can occur. If you do use AI to help you travel plan, I highly recommend doing some fact checking before booking anything, as sometimes the information may not always be correct or current.

AI Travel Planner: Final Thoughts

Overall, I think using a mix of an AI travel planner to cut through masses of online information and then reading your favourite travel bloggers recommendations is probably the best way to plan your adventures.
