Wanderlust Magazine: You've got to applaud Marco Polo's chutzpah to launch 30 new city/island guidebooks into an already pretty crowded market. Aiming to occupy the middle ground between the context-heavy luggage fillers and the context-free thinner volumes, the main USPs of these user-friendly guides are the plentiful 'Insider tips' dotted around each edition, the maps they're packaged with, and the pocket cheering price (GBP5.99 each). Complete with near-magazine style features, they're certainly a less intimidating proposition than some of the big wedges on offer. --Wanderlust Magazine

I have two small criticisms of the guide however. The suggested hotels, restaurants etc for each location seem to be a very odd, and at times very restricted, selection of what is available; often "out of agreement" with review sites such as Trip Adviser. If you are looking for places to eat or accommodation then the recommendations in the guide might not be the best available.
Secondly, and this might just be me, but I find the text rather hard to follow. There is a lot of advice and content in the guide but it doesn't always seem to be organised in an easy to follow order. There are summary sections at the beginning and end of the book with recommended trips and excursions as well as "see page??" references through out the text. The up shot of this is that I spent more time thumbing forwards and backwards in the book looking for stuff compared to other guides I have used for other locations.
Regardless of this, it is still a useful guide and useful to have when visiting Lake Garda.
