Most Helpful Customer Reviews
For the unbeaten path I did get some good tips but at the same time some reviews seem to be just copied directly from the attractions' own brochure or website. For example, I went to the Yorkshire Museum and it's literally the smallest museum I've ever visited in my life and it costs 5 pounds. I bought the combo ticket for Yorkshire Museum and York Castle Museum thinking they both worth visiting base on the book but again Yorkshire Museum is simply a joke and York Castle Museum is just an average museum for kids, not for adults. I'm really disappointed. To be fair, its review at other cities like London, Manchester and Leeds are good but York is a big touristy city so how can they get it wrong is a mystery.
