Pressestimmen

The Washington Post says, “The map guide lets you be inconspicuous: it’s as small and light as a novella, and its flip-out maps could pass as a flyer to a cool club.”

“Make sure you never lose your way in a strange city. Each of the Knopf MapGuides captures its city’s pith in a package as small as a passport wallet…”– Real Simple

“Knopf MapGuides are handy, practical and perfect for those of us who are slightly impaired when it comes to map-reading. You don’t have to search a huge crackling sheet with a microscopic index for one of 10,000 dots on the map…The extraordinary quality of the books’ beautiful hues and heavy paper also give these $8.95 guides an evocative quality that stands apart from the glossy, garish look of most travel books.” – Marin Independent Journal

“A good, handy portable item for a quick trip” – San Francisco Chronicle

“We love Knopf’s smart new map guides.” – Travel & Leisure

Fantastic map! 16. Juli 2006
Von A. W. Straub - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
As a first time European visitor with a 13 year old daughter towing me about, I decided to purchase no less than 8 travel books prior to going. Doing most of our travel on foot, bus, or via "the tube," I found that my "light weight is better" tourist transformation completed with us carrying only this book, the "Travelling around Your Tube and bus map" (tfl.gov.uk) and the little guide book from the folks at "The London Pass." Being middle aged and of little brain, and lesser eyesight, this book has easy to read, has larger than normal print on the maps, and The Tube guide handily in the back. On top of it all, it is small, weighs only 4.9 oz (138 g - sweat soaked) and contains an index with such entries as "Westminster Abbey." The only thing that could have made it better would be to make the Tube map in one piece. This minor inconvenience was easily overlooked once the Pimms had set in.

The best map of London I've found 14. Mai 2008
Von A. Levy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is definitely not the book to use to plan your trip to London, since the descriptions of the attractions are little more than blurbs, but this is absolutely the best map you could have. It's compact, easy to read, and the maps have twice the detail of any other map I've seen. I threw out the map I got with Frommer's guide (Frommer's was largely useless anyway) because it only labelled the main streets. Knopf's labels almost every street, which was a huge help when walking around the city. It's wonderful to find the street you are currently walking down on the map instead of having to wait until you hit a major intersection to figure out where you are. If you're going to London, get this book. You'll be glad you did when you don't have to fold and unfold a huge street map over and over again.

My favorite 7. Oktober 2010
Von NYC Girl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have been to London several times over the past 12 years and also lived there briefly. This book is great - it breaks out the city into neighborhoods (Mayfair, City, etc), has great unobtrusive folding maps, and also lists restaurants and sites in that particular area. The book is small but easy to read, is sturdy, and nicely produced. I recommend it to everyone who is planning on visiting the city. I think if you have this, and the "A to Zed" (which details every single street, unlike a regular guide book), you're set.

Pretty but useless when you're a walker 21. April 2012
Von Beatrice Izzey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I studied this map two months before I went to London for the first time. This map made me think it's a cozy, easy-strolling, pretty, understandable, doable city.

Once I was there, when I started trying to navigate using this map, I learned that it had created an illusion of simplicity. It was actually quite useless, as it gives the names of the bigger streets, and omits the tiny myriad side streets.

The Tube map should have been integrated into the map, but while the map shows the stations, you don't get the sense of which stations connect. You need to have a Tube map to do a side by side comparison, constantly.

I wound up buying a London A-Z map which gives every tiny alley, notes every dead end. The A-Z is "too much information," but it does not attempt to sugarcoat and obfuscate. My recommendation, based on experience: buy the London A-Z and a compass, as there are few North-South streets.

Very handy guide to carry with you. 11. Mai 2007
Von traveling mainer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
We found this guide to be the one we carried with us every day. It has great maps and brief descriptions of key places, all of which are very useful as you move around the city. There is an index and a tube map in the back. Places to visit and see, shop and eat are described and located handily on various close up maps. This one fits in a purse or pocket, isn't big and bulky and can therefore be looked at discreetly. The pages are stiff enough not to rip on repeated use. Next time I travel, I'll check out similar guides to other cities.
