A great guide. Even if you are not going to visit, it is still an enjoyable read. Rachael, Glasgow

The Insight Guide series are a lovely series of books which would make planning a trip so much easier. Glenda, Powys

A guide designed for the premium rather than budget traveller, but for quality and content, it hits the spot.  Ann, Suffolk

This has to be one of the best travel guide series’ I have seen, Not only is it full of beautiful photography it also has clear maps, which pinpoints some of the best places to visit. Even if like me, you don't travel, it is a wonderful read for the armchair traveller, something just to dip into and dream. Angie, Lancashire

I find this guide very user friendly and a glossy product. Whilst I think in itself it would be quite large to take with you, I think the combination of the ebook/App makes it traveller friendly.   Julie, Co. Donegal

The Insight Guides are beautiful books packed with amazing glossy photos. As soon as I opened one I found myself wanting to visit lots of the places. Overall a great series with useful information and amazing photos to entice you into visiting.  I can’t help thinking these guides would make a great present for anyone about to make a trip.  Rachel, London
