1. Bribe the reviewer (if they identify them) so that they can gain a good review, as they will only be in each city for a short amount of time.
2. Once assured a good review (or if they got that on their own merits), they can then decrease service because they are guaranteed the business.
3. Ride to victory.
Because these guides do not have the fluidity of the internet, they just can't keep up. They do, however, provide great maps, and how to get too and from individual cities. Their historical accounts are also fairly robust.
anyways, Lonely Planet is the best. highly recommended
I thank my lucky stars for that guidebook--it was so awesome. The book has maps of each area, tips on what to see, and interesting tidbits. I gave myself an informal tour of the city, just by using that book. The book was really easy to use.
Now, whenever I travel to some place new, I make sure that I order a Lonely Planet book. Of all the travel books that I've browsed through, the Lonely Planet ones are my favorite.
