What is a Practical Guide?
How To City Practical Guide is a pdf format guide that is aimed to make your travel and travel planning easier, with a reasonable price. A Practical Guide helps you to concentrate on the more fun part of both before your trip and during it. They are aimed especially for travellers who prefer public transportation and both doing and planning things on their own. Planning a trip is definitely part of the fun, but trying to figure out exactly where to find the airport bus stop is probably not the most exciting part of it… These guides should save around 1-5 hours of your planning time, compared to that you would collect the information by yourself.
What is included in the Guides?
Each Guide is a bit different, you can see the contents in the Practical Guides page and in shop. Most Guides have information about airport transfer, public transportation, list useful phrases in local language, small tips e.g. is the tap water drinkable etc. Depending on the guide there might be some tips relating to the sights, accommodation and food, but they are not the main focus, as you will find detailed information about them easily elsewhere.
What is not included?
Practical Guides do not list restaurants, hotels or wide range of sights, although some Guides have tips relating to them too. The individual product pages in the shop also list the exclusions, see them by clicking the Buy button below the relevant Guide.
Are there paid or sponcored content, can the tips be trusted?
The guides include information that I have searched for my own trips and tested in practice. There is no sponcored content, so if I recommend a restaurant, hotel or other business, it is just because I liked it and think you might like it too.
Why pay for this?
Most of this information is available on internet for free, but usually it is not in very detailed level and you may have to visit several sites to get a piece from here and there. The idea of these guides is to put together the information on a detailed level into one pdf file that you can easily either print before your trip, or save to your mobile device and read on the go.
The Practical Guides are not meant to replace all other guide books and websites, but to cover the certain part more thoroughly, with informative pictures and photos. I like traditional travel guide books too and many times buy them in addition to the information I collect online. The problem with them is that they usually try to cover everything, for example by listing all routes from airport to city, but not on a very detailed level. Therefore you most likely will pay for information that you don’t need and still not get everything you need.
