Q: What do our readers like best about PassPorter?

"The ratings helped us determine what to absolutely do and what to avoid - we had a 4-year old at the time. Place to keep everything and TONS of good advice on what to bring. I've shared my book with several friends when they've wanted to go. "
-- comment submitted by Amy Tongate (2014-09-12 09:09:17)

"I like that it gives a kid's view (even though I don't have kids). That is a cut above the others out there. "
-- comment submitted by Jesse Earl (2014-07-08 20:07:22)

"Ratings at parks and restaurants. Also the helpful hints which brought me to the website. Not yet but could when I read more of the book."
