I like the idea of this guide- I purchased the London and Paris guides to help plan our honeymoon- but I found the writing to be very condescending. A complete turn-off! Even if it does have helpful information, I'm much less likely to even open one again because no one likes to be talked down to when trying to plan a relaxing vacation!
This is an accordion-style brochure that has good content but it's not an inspiring "plan the dream vacation" piece I was hoping for. It is more for the person who has already booked their trip and uses as a guide book during the vacation.
MUST HAVE for the Globe Trotter!!!
I lived abroad in Asia for over 2 years and I made sure to pick one of these up for every city I visited.. From Beijing to Bangkok, these never lead me astray!!! Obviously they are compact, but a must have for the traveller who enjoys the finer things!!
Wasn't very helpful, or useful
Got the city guide for SF, didn't give me any more insight into things to do, that I already didn't know. Almost all the stuff I could have found online.
Cool but Gimmick
Great concept but the setup is too much of a gimmick to give any real teeth. Another version of Cliff Notes.
