Encounter guides

These pocket-sized guides are packed with city secrets. Perfect for a quick break or a business trip when you want to hit the ground running. Information is compact, quick and accessible with an emphasis on the more local aspects of a city.

Encounter guides help you discover twice the city (or region) in half the time. With a full-colour pull-out map and unique itineraries, these guides are less about accommodation and more about neighbourhoods; less about advance planning and more about diving in - past the tourist bureaus and straight to the locals' latest favourites.
