Review:

...a series of comprehensive guides for sophisticated travellers complete with Geographic's renowned photography, reporting and maps...National Geographic takes readers on tours of the world's most alluring travel destinations, packing more than a century of travel experience into every guide, and pinpointing key sights. -- Canadian Traveller Magazine, August, 1999

...glossy, dazzling guidebooks...National Geographic ...introduces its new Traveler series...As ever with National Geographic, they are some of the handsomest volumes you'll ever find on a shelf of travel books. -- The Toronto Star, June 19, 1999

Fodor's and Frommer's, take notice. A formidable competitor has just entered the travel guide arena. The new "National Geographic Traveler" series comes with the winning formula of in-depth reporting and breathtaking photography that have long made National Geographic Society's monthly magazine a favorite of armchair adventurers. -- The Atlanta Journal & Constitution, June 13, 1999

From the pros: National Geographic Society's travel books offer a wealth of information on locations throughout the world. -- Daily Herald, Provo, UT, April 11, 1999

National Geographic's new series of travel books, "National Geographic Traveler," debuts with well-written volumes...The frequent bold headlines make it easy to find information quickly, and the many quality photographs create an enticing visual tour. -- Washington Times, June 26, 1999

The National Geographic Traveler paperback guidebook series is rich with photography, maps and historical context. -- Los Angeles Times, May 2, 1999

There must be some worried guidebook publishers out there. The National Geographic Traveler is producing a series of travel guides sure to push some competing titles off book counters. New York is a winner...Detailed, brightly written chapters skip through New York neighborhoods...And, as one would expect from National Geographic, the photos and maps are superb. -- Portland Oregonian, July 18, 1999

From Library Journal:

The publishers of National Geographic Traveler add to the ever-growing number of travel guides with this new series; subsequent entries will include Canada, London, Paris, and Great Britain. Modeled closely on entries in DK's "Eyewitness Travel" series, each volume is filled with recommended walks and drives, detailed information on the usual tourist attractions, floor plans, color maps, and, of course, plenty of trademark National Geographic photographsAglossy, interesting, and colorful. New York focuses on Manhattan but briefly explores the outer boroughs, the Hudson Valley, and Long Island. France is divided into regions (e.g., the Loire Valley, Corsica). Each book ends with travel advice (when to go, what to take, getting there, getting around) and a short list of recommended hotels and restaurants. As with the DK series, these books are not inexpensive, but they pack a lot of information into a compact format ideal for taking along on a trip. If your library can afford both series, your patrons will be doubly delighted. For all travel collections.ALinda M. Kaufmann, Massachusetts Coll. of Liberal Arts, North Adams
