New York Tourist Guides

The list of books written about New York down the years seems almost endless. However, the number of good quality tourist guides which are right up to date and available today, is considerably smaller.

If you're heading for the Big Apple, you'll be in need of a good book to read on the plane and a great guide to use when you get there.

We have spent the best part of a year working on our new tourist guide which will be published soon. In the meantime, may we suggest Dorling Kindersley's Eyewitness Guide to New York. It is without doubt, the most comprehensive New York guide book there is and believe me, we have seen them all.

We do not sell The Eyewitness Guide but, if you'd like a copy, click the link below to order one from Amazon.

We've also included a selection of other guide books which we think are pretty good!

There are two different Amazon links for most of the New York guide books listed on this page.

If you choose, you will be charged in British Pounds Strerling and your book/s will be dispached from the UK.


If you choose, you will be charged in US Dollars and your book/s will be dispached from the US.
