The hotel recommendations have been wonderful in this book. When going to a new destination, we always check this book as an additional reference to see if there is anything else that we should be doing or visiting. Read full review

Review: The 10 Best of Everything: An Ultimate Guide for Travelers (National Geographic 10 Best of Everything: An Ultimate Guide)
