Insider's New Orleans

Great tips from a New Orleans native. What you read about in the book matches what you find on the streets once you're there--something that can't always be said about travel guides.

Exceptionally well put together and written

The authors of this book blend refreshing frankness, exceptional research and tons of information into an indispensible guide for the Crescent City and a lot of the area around it. It is the book you want if you only want one; the only thing some other guides have on it is map quality. It will help you with the top-to-bottom planning of your trip, as well as greatly assist you once there.

New Orleans for the unintiated

My wife and I had never gone anywhere near New Orleans. The Unauthorized guide pulled no punches and gave amusing and thorough advice on subjects we hadn't even considered. It is very useful and we heartily reccommend it to everyone.

An excellent practical guide.

I used this book to guide me through a recent visit to New Orleans and it proved invaluable on numerous ocassions. The writing is tight, informative but not dry, and it covers a lot of issues which other guides fear to address. The section on avoiding crime and scams.."I know where you got those shoes" was invaluable and saved me some money and some strife! The restaurant guide is excellent and the affordability rating very accurate. Using this guide it was easy to get the best for the least at every meal. Pay attention to the guide, especially about "Mothers" and "The Gumbo Shop" and you can't go wrong! The swamp tour info was also a great help and the guide wasn't wrong when it recommended one over the other (we did both). I highly recommend this guide and really...can't praise it enough!

Travel guide becomes a moving guide

Although we'd been to New Orleans numerous times and thought we knew the city pretty well, this guide took us places we'd never been before and really helped us discover parts of the city and its people that it would have taken years for us to accumulate on our own. It guided us so artfully that our experiences in New Orleans led us to move here full-time.So many guides steer you to this or that, but one of the biggest assets of this guide is what it steers you away from: the bad restaurants and ones that aren't worth the money, the overpriced amusements, and high crime areas.What it does give you is not so much of "what" is in the city, but the "how's" and "why's" of life in New Orleans. And it's pronunciation guide to street names and the like in New Orleans is as valuable as if you were going to a foreign city. Which, of course, you are--New Orleans is the United States' most foreign city!
