Reviews

"Moon handbooks are always a pleasure to read. The writing is crisp, the research impressive, and the recommendations practical and down to earth."--Chicago Tribune

"The books are more easily readable than other guides. The main attractions are also marked with a special icon and sidebars and boxes highlight special information, making the Moon handbooks one of the most user-friendly guides in terms of visual appeal and organization...the quality is uniformly excellent."--Transitions Abroad

"Far from narrow minded, each Moon travel guide gives itinerary options for a variety of travelers' budgets--from frugal to lavish. They make books catering to those who love the outdoors, those who have limited time, those staying exclusively in cities and those who've fully committed to living abroad. In all, they have hundreds of titles, ranging Bermuda to Budapest, that'll teach you to embrace a new culture."--Gear Patrol, "The Best Travel Guidebooks for Every Journey"

"Moon handbooks have become known as well-written and exceptionally informative guides."--The New York Times

"Moon guides are perfect for the relaxed road tripper or outdoor explorer." --No Small Plan

"Moon handbooks are known for cannily combining logistical information with cultural background of a country or state."--Los Angeles Times
