LUXE City Guides

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.

kind of neat

would have been cooler if i lived in one of these cities, but since i don't it's just kind of an oddity i will forget about if ever was actually visiting these cities. would probably find any information in it on my phone anyway.

Fun but selective

I really enjoyed reading through this, but the guide I got was for Chicago and I have no plans to visit Chicago. So I went on here as well as the Luxe website and was pretty disappointed that there weren't more cities to choose from. Being from Seattle, I'd really like to see one of these guides for here, that's how useful it seems. There just isn't a wide enough selection, which ultimately makes it useless for me.

not applicable

I don't really know why this product exists in the age of the smartphone. Even if the information is good, and I was not in the city of the sample unit I received so I don't know, I think a digital version would be far more useful, because this paper copy would get left behind in my hotel, but my phone would go with me.

It's okay

I received this in my September box. I don't see myself going to Chicago any time soon, so I don't know exactly how useful this will be to me.

Cool, but could be dated

This is a great idea and one I applaud. The presentation is well thought out. My only issue is that this sort of product can be easily dated. We all know that attractions, businesses, and restaurants come and go in big cities, and there lies the problem. I still keep it on my coffee table because it's a good conversation starter and always interesting to look at.

Chicago

I thought it was pretty detailed and hit some of the better spots that most people or tourists arent aware of.

Okay travel guide

My travel guide is for LA. I got it in a Birchbox. Sure, travel guides seem pretty obsolete with the internet. But this provides some unique information. Could help get you excited and plan for an upcoming trip.

Should be an app

Yeah I love guide books but this was a disapointment. First of all its supposed to be stuff that you cant find on the internet but I totally disagree. And how long will it be until its outdated? It should be an app that can always be updated if anything. Still cool idea though!
