A green “Tripadvisor Staff” label appears alongside forum messages posted by Tripadvisor employees.
Destination Experts are Tripadvisor members who are knowledgeable about a destination (or travel topic) and volunteer their time to help answer questions in the forums. They are not Tripadvisor staff members and do not represent Tripadvisor in an official capacity.
Destination Experts are not travel agents. Nor are they moderators, administrators or members of the Tripadvisor Community Team, so they are not responsible for removing inappropriate content or answering site-related questions.
Destination Experts are chosen based on their contributions to our forums. We look for people who are friendly, offer good advice, and are active in the forums.
