Planning where to go and what sights to see can take the fun out of a vacation, but Google’s new app is ready to handle all the heavy lifting for you.

Google Trips debuted today on both iOS and Android devices, putting a travel guide in your pocket everywhere you go.

Trips instantly plans each day of your vacation with just a few taps. You set the agenda based on what types of spots you’d like to visit and Google Trips shows you a variety of plans that hit up the most popular local gems.

The new app works with over 200 cities. More are set to be added in the future. Best of all, all of its features are available offline. Just tap the download button to save a trip to your phone.

If you don’t want to set specific plans for each day, you can make your schedule more flexible by choosing a spot you definitely want to see, then hit the + button on the side to see recommendations of places to visit in the area.

Google Trips also keeps track of all your reservations and flights. That way you don’t have to dig through your Gmail when you get to your destination. Grab it now on the App Store or Google Play.
