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.

Not very informative
Sampled

I love LA, and I didn't find this guide to be informative enough.

Great Idea, Poor Execution
Sampled

I love the idea of this, but I'm not going to LA anytime soon. I wish they would have let us select which one we wanted. They could have given us a voucher to select the one we want, similar to the men's health subscription.

nice if you need a guide
Sampled

This is a handy item, mine was for New York.. can be dated quickly as many places close and new places are more hip.

Pretty Guide..... Not Sure How Complete
Sampled

I like the layout of the guide; it looks great. I am jut not sure how much more effective this would be rather than going through an app on your smartphone. Back in the day before smartphones were present everywhere, I am sure this guide would have been quite awesome.

Waste of box space

Neat idea, but as a free sample- not as something that is in your box!

I guess its good for people if there were no Internet or Frommers
Sampled

While this is in a nice package, I just don't get it. It seems to have good information, but nothing in true depth. Why buy this when you can use the internet on your phone? For a true tourist, I would stick with a Frommers' Travel Guide, which has much more information and is just huge. I feel as if I was traveling this is not even close to a necessity.

I did enjoy the city advice and humor to this map, but that was it. Who uses maps nowadays anyways?

Seriously?

This was about as useless as the grilling apron I got in my last box. I have no use for a New York guide. Like most people, I have an iphone to help me decide where to eat and stay.
