Product Description

Review

“Brutally Honest Insiders Give You The Straight Scoop So You Don’t Feel Or Look Like A Tourist.” -- The Independent

“For Cutting Edge In A City That Teeters Between Conservative And Revolutionary, This Is The Book To Buy.” -- Toronto Sun

“Sharp Writing And A Thrilling Layout Make It A Guidebook You Can Read From Cover To Cover Without A Yawn.” -- San Francisco Examiner

“This Fledgling Series May Soon Do For Travel Guides What Hitchcock Did For Film.” -- Chicago Tribune

“Whip Smart, Seductively Stylish And Completely Up-To-Date.” -- Consumer Reports

From the Publisher

Avant-Guide is the only travel guidebook series expressly edited for the post-Let's Go, pre-Fodors crowd. These books are intelligently written and brutally honest. And because they're "fast-forward" in content and design, each is also a highly entertaining read.

Every listing is packed with crucial details, including phone numbers, opening hours, and exact prices. And our editors work particularly hard to create the best indexes in the business. Avant-Guide's full-color city, regional, and transport maps are built for speed. Plus, quick-view gatefold maps in the back covers are thoroughly tested, minutely detailed, and indexed down to the last blind alley.

It is a cool guide. Complete, structured and precise. I went to a different club every night and never was I dissatisfied. The rest of the guide is as informative as the Nightlife section with a wide range from exclusive places to the alternative ones.

This travel guide made my visit to London a complex experience. It offers all the basic sites, but it also gives you a chance to linger into the less central areas without the feelings of uncertainty.

I especially appreciate the section on Planning. It made my first trip to New York a pleasure. The guide is well organized and contains valuable information. Its layout is fun with many cool photos.

This is an AMAZING guide and I used it for my first trip to NY in 2002. I WISH they'd publish a NEW, updated one! Even though it's older, this insider's guide book can still be a great source.
