Editorial Reviews

Review

“Brutally Honest Insiders Give You The Straight Scoop So You Don’t Feel Or Look Like A Tourist.” -- The Independent

“For Cutting Edge In A City That Teeters Between Conservative And Revolutionary, This Is The Book To Buy.” -- Toronto Sun

“Sharp Writing And A Thrilling Layout Make It A Guidebook You Can Read From Cover To Cover Without A Yawn.” -- San Francisco Examiner

“This Fledgling Series May Soon Do For Travel Guides What Hitchcock Did For Film.” -- Chicago Tribune

“Whip Smart, Seductively Stylish And Completely Up-To-Date.” -- Consumer Reports

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.

"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more

By A Customer on November 14, 2002
this summer when my friend and i visted prague, i bought this guidebook on a whim. it turned out to be the best guidebook of all the books we bought for our trip. all the resteraunts reccomended were FABULOUS. we did one of the walking tours in the book, which was amazing - it could be self-paced, you didnt have to pay for a guide or join one of the gigantic group tours and you got all the information.
in all, one of my favorite features of the book was the street guide in the back. there is a listing of all the streets in prague with coordinates corresponding with a map. that way, if you get lost (and believe me, its easy, especially in old town!!) you can find out where you are and where you need to go very easily.
i love this book, and am buying it for my brother who is visiting prague in january!

The book is highly informative: I found the characterizations of the bars, restaurants, etc. spot-on (as of March 2003), and did both of the self-guided walks without trouble. The main weakness of the book is the relatively inadequate fold-out map. But this is easily remedied - virtually every kiosk and hotel in Prague sells a larger street map with the primary sights as well as all the mass transit routes clearly marked for approximately $.... So buy this book for pre-trip preparation and reference while in-country, and spend a buck on the better map once you're there. The combo is hard to beat.

Although this is a bit outdated version, I recently used it on a trip in 2007 and almost everything was still correct. The stories were well written and the whole guide entertaining and informative. I needed no other book, but I agree, a supplimental street map was helpful. I especially liked that for each restaurant, or sight, it listed the metro stop. I had a wonderful trip to an amazing city with this book!!!

Prague is a magical city and it deserves an unusual guide. Its narrow streets with cobble stones ask to be discovered and it is actually easy with the Avantguide. It contains precious insider's information on places away from the tourist center where you hardly meet other tourists.
