Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The guidebook for the all- around traveler,” says enRoute magazine. “Small enough to tuck into your Prada bag and cool enough to be seen in public, these guidebooks single out the best addresses in a city. Bright, stylish, small, and easy- to- navigate.”

And The Washington Post says, “The MapGuide lets you be inconspicuous: it’s as small and light as a novella, and its flip-out maps could pass as a flyer to a cool club.”
