We’ve tried all the guidebooks from established travel guide publishers like Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, TimeOut, Footprint, DK Eyewitness, Fodor’s & Frommer’s. Their well-written and researched background information and description of highlights have helped us on many trips.
Several of the above companies call themselves the “biggest travel guide publisher in the world” on their website. We found it quite cool to find out our small boutique publishing company actually covers quite a few more cities in Europe and North America than these huge companies do!
