A recommendation from a real friend is worth more than the opinion of a thousand strangers

When someone gives a hotel a one-star rating, and another person gives the same hotel five stars – who should you trust? Who are these people really, who rate hotels, restaurants, bars and attractions? When you do not know their preferences, or what they want from a certain experience, are their reviews and recommendations truly relevant to you?

We believe that a recommendation from someone you know, a real friend, is worth more than the opinion of a thousand strangers. Nova Circle is your social app, where you connect with friends and likeminded people, to share your best travel experiences and memories from all over the world.

No ratings, just genuine recommendations from your friends and people who share your taste and preferences.

What you get with Nova Circle:

  • Never forget spots your friends recommend.
  • Recommend and share with friends in one single space.
  • Find inspiration for where to go and what to do next.

Plan every detail or be spontaneous

Whether you prefer to plan every detail or be spontaneous, the Nova Circle app helps you stay inspired and make a trip plan that suits your way of doing things.

If you are somewhat of a control freak and want to know everything beforehand, the Nova Circle app provides you with genuine reviews and recommendations, which will minimize the risk of ending up in tourist traps and other disappointing experiences.

If you rather want to be spontaneous, just catch a flight and pop down anywhere in the world, and let other members' favorite lists guide you to the hotspots and hidden gems.

I live for food, wine and experiences. Finally there’s an app where I can share my favorite spots and get inspired by others.

As a foodie with an interest in art and fashion, I’m constantly on the hunt for the best food and drink spots, art museums and the ultimate shopping destinations. When looking for inspiration, I always trust recommendations from friends above all. With Nova Circle it’s now a breeze to find new places that are in tune with what I like, from those I trust.
