o Access fans and other travelers who depend on one single guidebook to provide them with comprehensive and practical advice on their chosen destination.
o o Although Access is a favourite of business and sophisticated travelers, it is also widely used by people who live in the destination cities themselves, and it is particularly attractive to tourists as it guides them around the streets of the city, allowing them intimate access to it. o Neighborhood break–down system makes this the only guide that is able to lead travelers down the streets for a comprehensive tour. Especially useful for visitors who want the sights and sounds, and are also looking for that undiscovered gem, or who have just enough time to cover one of several choice locations within the city.o Access guides are the personal pick of locals, who applaud our inclusion of independent and local stores within their communities, and who often recommend us to their friends and newcomers to the city. Access guides are written and researched by professional travel writers who live and work in the city, and who are able to share content that a visiting writer on assignment can never hope to offer.
