Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

One Team: A Devotion to Quality There’s just one reason our team is dedicated to producing quality travel publications—you, our reader. We want you to get the maximum benefit from your trip—and from your money. In today’s multiple-choice world of travel, the options are many, perhaps overwhelming. In our guidebooks, we try to minimize the guesswork involved with travel. We scout out the attractions, prioritize them with star ratings, and describe what you’ll discover when you visit them. To help you orient yourself, we provide colorful and detailed, but easy-to-follow maps. Floor plans of some of the major museums help you plan your tour. Throughout the guides, we offer practical information, touring tips and suggestions for finding the best views of the city, a good place for a break or where to make that special purchase. Lodging and dining are always a big part of travel, so we compile a selection of hotels and restaurants that we think convey the feel of the city, and organize them by geographic area and price. We also highlight shopping, recreational and entertainment venues, especially the hot spots. If you’re short on time, two- and four-day itineraries are included so you can hit the highlights and quickly absorb the best of the destination. For those of you who love to experience a destination on foot, we add walking tours, complete with a map. And we list other companies who offer boat, bus or guided walking tours of the city, some with culinary, historical or other themes. In short, we test and retest, check and recheck to make sure that our guidebooks are truly just that: a personalized guide to help you make the most of your visit. After all, we want you to enjoy traveling as much as we do.

Format: Paperback
I was on one of those tv show/ movie tours in NYC recently and the tour guide had the most interesting stories to tell about the city. After the tour was over, I asked her to please tell me where she got all of her information. She explained to me that the NYC government requires that tour guides pass a test to get a tour guide license. In order to pass that test, they recommend that you study the Michelin NYC Green Guide. I wanted to make sure, so I called the licensing division and asked them what I needed to do to prepare for the exam - sure enough, they said to get the Michelin Green Guide NYC!! This travel guide has to be good!

Format: Paperback
This is the best guide available for walking tours of the cultural attractions of the Big Apple. I've used this and earlier versions of this book off and on for 25 years, both when I lived in New York and subsequently. The ratings of New York's major and minor sites from one to three stars are spot on, just as the Michelin Green Guides for London and Paris are. Useful both for the tourist with a few days to spend in New York as well as the resident New Yorker who needs to haul visitors around town to those attractions usually disdained by natives.
