Not familiar with the books yet? Here’s the skinny:

Ever wish you had a best friend in Switzerland? Someone to show you the ropes?

Wish granted.

Filled with 100 interviews with people who live, work, and adventure in Switzerland, this book will give you:

  • Directions to hidden-away trails, waterfalls, castles, and viewpoints
  • Lists of must-try dishes and wines (and where to find them)
  • Unique and interesting day trip suggestions
  • Tips for how to make friends, save money, and fit in with the local culture
  • And so much more

It’s time to experience authentic, local Switzerland—through the eyes of those who have lived there for years.

Still on the fence? Here’s what a few readers had to say about past books:

“I love it. What to eat? Where to meet people? What to see & photograph. All things that matter to most people, especially solo travelers, and are not well addressed in other guidebooks.“ – Rob Philip

“She asks the eternal question of ‘what to do,’ sure. The difference is *who* she asks: clearly, the most delightful, enthusiastically interesting and deeply engaged people she has come across in her singularly extensive travels. They, predictably, have the raddest answers. They are niche answers. They are answers from people who really, really LOVE their particular slicelet of the country. And they are totally captivating. Loved it.” – Netterino on Amazon

“My method for evaluating guidebooks is to read about places I know well. There was a time when I spent a lot of time working in Genoa – I was there a week at a time about every third week for nine months. I got to know a number of locals. I can comfortably say the section on Genoa is absolutely accurate. Unlike a lot of guidebooks, Genoa isn’t over sold. There is excellent advice about how to visit towns in that area (some of these places are packed solid with people in the summer). They also mention towns that aren’t in guidebooks – places that locals go for vacation or the summer; alternatives to the guidebook itineraries.” – Daniel G. Lebryk on Amazon

“I wish every country had a guide like this!” – LouLouFrance on Amazon

[…] capital, Ljubliana, and Lake Bled looks gorgeous from the photos I’ve seen. When our friend Gigi invited us to join her while she’s there in July, of course I said yes. I haven’t done […]

Congrats, Gigi! I been waiting for this book :). I want to get the paperback version and am wondering if it’s print is in color. On the order page it said black & white. Cheers!

Hi Anita,

The cover is full color, but the interior is black and white (unfortunately, with self-publishing the cost of doing color interiors is astronomical). That said, the book really lends itself to black and white, as it doesn’t have photos in the book itself (though there are links to photos and a few maps throughout so you can view full color resources online).
