Top 5 Users in 2018!!


So first off, before we jump into the top 5, if you left a review on the site we are IMMENSELY appreciative that you spent the time to share your experiences. I know many of us love to read reviews but taking the next step to leave your own review is heavier lift.  


So first and foremost if you left even a single review, I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you!! Your tips are helping to create a travel platform like no other that exist on the market and it is truly dedicated to the Black Traveler. You are the real MVP!!


If you would like to leave your own tips that can be shared with our community of travelers, just click this Link and navigate to the destination where you would like to share your experience. Your tip can be a recommendation of something to do or even something to avoid.


So there is no magic formula of how we selected our top 5 users from 2018. Shoot, we actually were curious ourselves so we decided to extract some data from the back-end of the site to see whose names we were always seeing.


I will say it partially has to do with the amount of reviews you have made, the quality of the reviews, specific information you are sharing, and how well you populated your profile etc.  Again, this is just something fun we would thought we would share since we were doing it behind the scenes anyway. Well, let the countdown begin….
