ChatGPT's Flaws Exposed: Why WolfPack is the Future of Tour Management


A traveler looking at the clouds

Travolution recently did a study on the accuracy of travel itineraries spit out by ChatGPT. Turns out, there are quite a lot of inaccuracies floating around, which is a huge setback for tour operators and travel guides trying to deliver promised tour experiences, earn those sweet 5-star reviews, and stand apart in the competitive travel industry.  


Let’s take a look at the key problems identified when crafting itineraries using ChatGPT/other AI tools:  

  • Inaccurate itineraries: 90% of ChatGPT-generated travel itineraries are inaccurate. 

  • Invalid recommendations: 24% of itineraries recommended restaurants, cafes, or attractions, either temporarily or permanently closed. 

  • Off-hour suggestions: Over half (52%) suggestions for visiting attractions, cafes, or restaurants are outside of their opening hours. 

  • Cost considerations: Nearly one-third (30%) includes recommendations for expensive Michelin-starred restaurants. 

  • Detours and Backtracking: 25% of itineraries require travelers to backtrack or make unnecessary detours. 

  • Non-Existent Recommendations: Some itineraries recommend non-existent places. 

  • Lack of Personalization: AI tools like ChatGPT lack the personalization and expertise of human travel agents or operators. 


"AI tools like ChatGPT can provide general information but they lack the capability to provide personalized insights and tailored recommendations. Travel agents and tour operators must not rely solely on AI thinking it's the answer to everything.“  

Tom McLoughlin, SEO Travel, Director 


It's evident that relying solely on AI tools like ChatGPT poses significant challenges for tour operators striving to deliver exceptional tour experiences and earn 5-star reviews in the travel industry. It can be a true disruptor and a potential "tour operator" or "tour guide" killer if not harnessed effectively.
