How can I find good travel guides?

Let's Go Travel Guides

Let´s Go Travel Guides have targeted students and other budget-minded travelers for more than 40 years. The first guide was a 20-page mimeographed pamphlet, intended to be passed out to students heading out to Europe on charter flights in 1960.

Let's Go is still run by Harvard University students, and the books are produced by traveling student-writers that are paid a daily stipend intended only to cover basic expenses. They are packed with helpful details for the budget traveler, including compact, easy-to-read maps, and every establishment listed in the guides has been visited and reviewed by the student-writers.
