What makes Rough Guides different?

  • Rough Guide authors are experienced and highly motivated. We make a long-term commitment to the regions we cover and are always on the lookout for material for our next edition.
  • Rough Guides are detailed. This makes them longer than other guidebooks. If you're travelling light and decide to cut out the pages relating to places you're skipping, we won’t be offended.
  • Rough Guide authors write for thinking travellers of all ages and budgets - from school-leavers to retirees, and from shoestring to luxury. Our readers tend to be extremely loyal - we know this, because many of them write to us with their own recommendations.
  • We don't expect our readers to rough it. In fact, we do our best to smooth your path. In case you’re in any doubt, you can take it from us that the name “Rough Guides” is thoroughly ironic.
