The 5-star virtual experiences consumers have reviewed

As the world continues to open more in-person experiences as the pandemic evolves, we may see a decline in some of virtual experiences that have got many of us through the last few months. However, over those months, consumers have left informative reviews on Trustpilot detailing the many, and sometimes unexpected, virtual experiences they’ve had in the midst of social distancing. In this article we’re looking at the 5-star virtual experiences consumers had over the past months as evidenced by their reviews on Trustpilot.

Socializing and Attending Events Remotely

One of the most difficult parts of social distancing for many people has been the “social” part. Being separated from friends and family and unable to participate in normal social events has been a difficult adjustment for some. Many companies have been able to deliver social experiences and events to those who are distancing and consumers are sharing their 4 and 5-star experiences on Trustpilot. Below are some of the companies that have delivered these experiences virtually and received positive feedback from consumers.

Twinwoods Adventure has received 5-star reviews for their virtual escape room, allowing groups of up to six one hour to solve a mystery through a series of puzzles and clues.

Many people are still waiting for the day when they can visit breweries or distilleries again, and enjoy tasting craft beverages. Eden Mill is trying to make the wait more bearable by offering virtual gin tastings, which one consumer said was just as good as some in-person tastings they had participated in.

Staying Healthy, Virtually

Social distancing means that some people have had limited access to gyms, health clubs, and even doctors and pharmacies. Companies that can deliver these services virtually have been critical in helping keep those at home healthy and happy and many consumers have left reviews for these outstanding wellness experiences on Trustpilot.

Before COVID-19, group classes and boutique fitness training were an extremely popular way to stay fit. Gyms like Fitfam Studios and Bootcamp UK are helping consumers keep up their workout habits by offering virtual classes that have positive reviews on Trustpilot.

Virtual Shopping and eCommerce

As economies around the world begin to bounce back and people resume shopping habits, many have embraced the simplicity that comes with shopping online. Consumers are leaving reviews for companies that traditionally require an in-store experience, but have offered virtual customer service or consultation they consumers make shopping decisions remotely.

Many have found that spending more time at homes means investing in renovation or redecorating. Companies like Hammonds Furniture and Optiplan Kitchens have offered remote design consultations to help consumers make those important decisions about changes they’re making in their homes.
