  • Limited and disappointing

    By sharpdart
    I bought the Barcelona guide and found it very disappointing, especially for the price. Several times we were in pretty basic neighborhoods (Barrio Gotic, El Born, Eixample) and found more to do from searching recent posts on local or travel blogs. For one restaurant recommendation, the name was completely wrong (or it closed). The focus seems to be more on curating a limited, exclusive, travel experience than on offering a wide variety of options.
  • Never leads me astray - the BEST

    I love LUXE guides and I've dutifully been using them for a decade. They've never let me down yet! I still think about this tiny shop in Dubai off the beaten path where I bought the most gorgeous silk tunics....sigh. The app is even better since you can make itineraries and lists and keep it all sorted on your mobile phone. I just came from Milan and used the LUXE guide...the bar and restaurants and things to do where all on point. Sometimes the app isn't correct about the neighborhood (Gino Sorbillo restaurant was absolutely NOT in the Duomo neighborhood) so make sure to double check locations on Google Maps or a similar app. Otherwise I'm thrilled with LUXE on my mobile!
  • Current version is a rip off. One year access only!

    I used to be a big Luxe guide fan. These little guides were useful, stored in my phone for easy reference and had some fantastic shopping and dining recommendations, and they were updated regularly. With a recent update, these guides are now $14.99 each and it expires after a year! I've also since realized there's nothing very special about their recommendations, with a little bit of effort, you can find them anywhere online for free! Sorry Luxe, you've just lost a user who used to buy your guides religiously! Update 31/7/17: my digital guides were accidentally removed due to a technical glitch. I've since received the guides back. Thanks Luxe, for the response and technical fix.

    This app makes your city travel way easier. Tons of useful information about shopping, dining and hotel'ing. Well worth it.
  • Very useful, though implemented weakly

    LUXE maps integrate very nicely with mobile phone mapping (on iPhones anyway), helping you find attractions even in tough (geographic) locales like Venice. Content and suggested locales include some great suggestions, and good restaurant picks, but much of the material is a bit slanted towards party-hardy 30-somethings, FWIW. The app attempts to work even when offline (a key issue if you're on the road) but that's hit-and-miss: sometimes it forgets what guides you have, and needs wifi to refresh, and there isn't any where you are. So don't rely on it alone.
  • Great guides updated regularly

    I love these guidebooks. They are updated regularly with new listings and match well with the way I like to travel. Don't be fooled by the "luxe" name, there are plenty of less expensive experiences that are unique that luxe recommends in the guides.
  • Brilliant to see, shop and eat for busy people

    My partner always one-ups me when it comes to finding great places in Istanbul, New York or Tokyo for shopping, eating or seeing the sights. Not so anymore now that I have this guide that finds what I need on a nicely curated and very accessible basis. Turns out she was using the Luxe Guide all along...
  • Rip off

    Each city requires an additional payment of 5.99 - all information available on the net with better reviews and prices - trip advisor / zomato/ or even Yelp!
  • Don't buy this app

    This is the most ridiculous waste of money for an app. $9.99 for an app that tells you less than I gathered in a day and a half here. There is almost nothing on the Paris guide. Considering that this is the most visited city in the world, it is appalling how little info is actually available, though they promise you five times as much in the preview. Buy a Kindle city guide for $5.99. DON'T BUY ANY OF THEM! Wish I could get my money back.
