We’ve grown a lot since publishing our first 20-page pamphlet to Europe in 1960, but over the decades and 75 titles later, our witty, candid guides are still researched and written entirely by students on shoestring budgets who know that train strikes, stolen luggage, food poisoning, and marriage proposals are all part of a day’s work.
In short, we write for readers who know that there’s more to travel than tour buses.
LET'S GO EUROPE 2017: THE STUDENT TRAVEL GUIDE
First time to Europe? It’s our 57th. There isn't a hostel in Hungary we haven’t tested, a beer in Brussels we haven’t imbibed, or a metro line in Madrid we haven’t mastered. After going through the ups and downs, we know the ins and outs. Part local expert, part goofy travel companion, Let’s Go Europe lays down some Continental #realtalk: the secret ways to avoid lines at the Louvre; the truly undiscovered (read: not Dubrovnik) gems of the Croatian coast; and yes, you do have spanakopita stuck in your teeth.
Let's Go Budget Guides are for travelers who want to spend less but have more fun, students with more time than money, and anyone who appreciates a good deal. Our guides are written by Harvard student researchers. And who better than a starving student to figure out how to stretch a budget—and discover what's free and fun along the way? These slim, easy-to-carry books are packed with dollar-saving information to help you make every penny count and also include neighborhood maps to help you get oriented, plus eight pages' worth of color photos to whet your appetite for sightseeing. From how to get discount tickets for museums, performances, and public transportation to where to find cheap eats and affordable accommodations, Let's Go Budget Guides have got you covered—and it's small enough to fit in your back pocket.
