Anyone with a smart phone can track down a Michelin-star restaurant in Paris or point you in the direction of the Forbidden City. But this slim, deeply researched line of guidebooks—don’t expect maps, illustrations, or any of the otherwise Google-able info you’d find stuffed in fatter versions—specializes in the type of locales known only to the natives. It’s the kind of unabashedly opinionated editorial advice that will send you happily flying solo. And it’s executed with so much brevity and class that the guides can fit comfortably into a pocket or your carry-on.
I received the Chicago city guide, and as someone originally from the city, still found it useful and full of (what I hope to be) good recommendations. Goes far beyond other guidebooks.4
I've spent a lot of time in LA, but I still managed to learn something from my guide. It's not perfect - how is Cleo, the restaurant at the Redbury missing?! - but it's definitely an 'insider's' guide to the city, and one that will sometimes take you off the beaten track. I'd definitely buy a Luxe guide if I had never been to the city before.4
Very travel friendly and convenient! Neat to see the different options while you're traveling through each city.5
I received the Chicago book and seems like it would be great to carry around with me on my next trip!3
When I can get an app that has all the information included and this booklet is BIGGER than my phone!1
I look forward to trying the tips and hot spots this guide provides. You can tell they aren't cookie cutter tourist locations. Good work BBMan.5
I believe this is something designed, new traveling person.
Didn't feel it offered amazing places in the city.
Interesting travel guide with some useful information, however the limited number of city's and advances in technology make it obsolete.2
This is a really cute guide book. The size is great for traveling. I'm not sure it's the most useful travel/city guide i've ever purchased, but it is fun.3
I didn't care for this product at all. It came in my Birchbox and I definitely perused the guide, however it was a guide for New York City and I had no plans to ever use it. I did, however, find a friend traveling to New York and gave it to them to use. They tried, and found that it really wasn't of much use to them. It's a great size though and has a lot of information, my friend just didn't find the need for it after being in NYC for a day.2
