Rip Off Rough Guide

Reviewed on June 19, 2022
Paperback | Verified

Rough Guides have usually been a great compromise between Lonely Planet and Fodors. This new New England guide is glaringly a terrible extract of some larger USA guide - every map bar one is of the USA, not New England, with irrelevant information, no maps of the individual states, so many sights left out. no evidence that this really is a 2022 update. I wont buy any more Rough Guides !
