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.
