Marco Polo Spiral Travel Guide Review and Giveaway

Depending on the location, time and given circumstances travel guides are a travellers best friend or worst nightmare. I love independent guides, which are flexible, can be used several times and don’t show how much they were used. Marco Polo approached me and told me about their new travel guide series of spiral travel guides. I was happy to receive one copy of the Budapest edition which I used on a weekend trip to the Hungarian Capital in February/March of this year.

About Budapest

The city is best known for its location on the Danube and the two parts of the city which combined make up the name of the city. Buda + Pest = Budapest.

I recommend a stay of 2 to 3 days to get a great idea of the city and visit all mayor sights. Read more about how to spend 36 hours in this truly lovely city in Europe!

The spiral travel guide is perfect for the independent traveller, who loves to explore but also wants to see the basics. Thanks to the spiral the guide lays flat on the table when planning your trip and makes it foldable at whatever page you want it to be folded.

Certain districts are found in different chapters with the same structure so you’ll know how to use the travel guide immediately. The highlights are covered first and then additional information is found afterwards.

Street maps are found at the end of the guide book and an additional pull-out map makes navigating the city even easier!
