We recently did a 4 day short stay in New Orleans. Although focused on the French Quarter, we did make it to the Garden District. Usually, I buy several travel books, but, as the trip was short, I went with just this one. Good choice. The pictures really helped decide what we wanted to see and that we had found it when we got there. Recommendations for hotels and eating places were pretty accurate (as individual tastes and day-to-day changes effect this, I always expect some divergence from what a guide says.) However, the strength was in the sights, maps and history provided. We had a pretty good take on the French Quarter and general NO history before we went (from reading the book.) Because time was short, we were able to hit the hot spots that we wanted to see and had time left over to relax, see the few sights that were further down the list and generally enjoy the atmosphere and culture. This book was so accurate and helpful, I got two of their guides to places in Spain.

This is a wonderful travel guide that is all about New Orleans with beautiful color illustrations, photographs and maps. It gives you a plan on spending four days in Orleans. It has cutaways and floor plans of all the major sights and 3-D aerial views of Orleans most interesting districts. Listed inside is a huge selection, though not all of hotels, restaurants, shops and entertainment venues. There are there specially devised walking tours. Websites for all are included. The book is broken into areas of the city of New Orleans.
Overall, this is a great tour guide to take with you on your trip to New Orleans, whether it is your first time or second. I have no hesitation in recommending this one. Only qualm I have about this guide in that no ratings are available, as found in Frommer's or Fodor's travel guides.

We haven't gone on the trip yet so I cannot gauge accuracy, but I am enjoying reading the book. The photos are very good and the details/descriptions are great. I am/was fairly ignorant about NO (have never visited) so I am learning a lot with this book (and without getting bored). The maps, the street index, the reference guides... all very useful/helpful. I may update after the trip but for now I am quite happy.

My work has provided me with the opportunity to travel a good bit. I am the type of person who wants to get a working background for my destinations, both in terms of history and geographic layout. Because I work, I don't have a great deal of time to spend reading and studying different, often lengthy, travel guides before or during my trips.

Because these guides are concise, beautifully illustrated, relatively compact, and impeccably organized, I cannot recommend highly enough the Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Travel Guides! The DK Eyewitness Travel Guide is THE guide I buy for every destination. Not only do I get a quick history and background of the destination, but I also will be provided with a visual guide to everything. The visual detail is really what sets the DK Eyewitness Travel Guides apart.

The street maps of common destination points are drawn in dimensional detail so you will visually recognize when you "get there." This is particularly helpful when you don't speak the native language.

The regional maps are colorful and concise. However, the DK Eyewitness Travel Guide really shows its stuff with the drawings associated with attractions such as museums. Their presentation of museum layouts allow the traveler who is short on time to quickly see the best of the museum within the time the traveler has to spend.

Each DK Eyewitness Travel Guide has a good summary section in the back with practical information about where to eat, where to sleep, what to do, and how to get around.

While I may supplement the DK Eyewitness Travel Guide with others for a more detailed travel guide, the other guide is only more to read, not more to see. Buy the DK Eyewitness Travel Guide first for any destination.

DK Guides are always great. This one is no exception. It has great background information about New Orleans and great sightseeing information and suggestions. As usual with DK guides, the maps and illustrations are attractive and useful.

I love the Eyewitness Travel Guides and have a collection. This one was especially helpful to me because, while I feel familiar with New Orleans, we were takening friends from Australia and I wanted to have all my facts straight. I highly recommend this book for NOLA.

Eyewitnness has the very best in travel books. I love all of the details especially in reference to architecture, the history and the food. I always grab an Eyewitness and studyup when visiting a new city. Excellent narrative walking tours with this book too.

I love planning my trips with the DK Eyewitness series. You know before you go what you want to see and where you want to stay, eat and shop. They are worth their weight--all those color illustrations make it a heavier travel guide but a better one, too.
