Calling all trailblazers! Marco Polo has never been one to follow the crowd: since they burst onto the scene in 2012 and turned the travel publishing world upside-down, they have been pursuing a quest to create the best travel guide possible ever since!
Along with all the regular content updates you’d expect from a relaunch – the guides also contain a new Discovery Tours chapter:
- Each book has 4 to 5 exciting, specially tailored tours helping readers get behind the scenes and head off the beaten track.
- The perfect planning tool – each tour has an overview box detailing the start and end points, distance, plus timing and costs involved – all the information an explorer needs at a glance!
- Each tour is plotted on an overview map highlighting the start point and final destination for easy orientation.
- A detailed flow chart with pictograms clearly shows the way – including distance indicators, sights to explore, views to enjoy en route and plenty of Insider Tips for relaxing stops along the way.
Free touring app! The Discovery Tours are also available as an app – simply download any of the tours from the web link / QR code featured in each guide. The ultimate navigational tool to enjoy stress-free sightseeing.
Ground-breaking new look covers bring the guides bang up-to-date, so you won’t need to be shy about looking like a tourist! Fresh, simple, cool – the split line typography is designed to make you look twice and the bright colours will get you in the holiday mood!
The guides with Insider Tips! Showing the main sights in detail simply isn’t enough for modern-day travellers. Marco Polo specialises in getting you off the beaten track! Why follow the crowd when you can make your own path?
Let Marco Polo show you hidden gems, lesser-known locations and stunning viewpoints where you can make memories to last a lifetime. Brush shoulders with the locals, eat the food that Grandma makes and seek out unique experiences at every turn.
Be a traveller, not just a tourist!
