  We've received a great many inquiries asking where our brand-new, freshly-researched Easy Guides and Day by Day Guides can be bought.  Well, unless they're already sold out--and we're shipping additional supplies each week--they are found in all the major bookstores--both Barnes and Noble, Books a Million, and independent stores--and also on the internet sites that mail the books to...

       In language whose sincerity is so strong as to overcome fears of a commercial pitch, reader Jenny Hederstrom has written to Frommers.com about her recent experience in traveling to India to attend a school teaching Agama Yoga.  We are reprinting it here, in its entirety, and would be grateful for comments.  "My name is Jenny Hederstrom and I am from Sweden.  I would really l...

Introducing Wanderu, the Site that Streamlines the Search for the Cheap Shuttle Bus Services

By Jason Cochran

Posted on 11/21/2013, 7:00 PM

It had to happen: Kayak for cheapie shuttle buses. New website Wanderu stops budget travelers from having to hunt through multiple sites for cheap bus fares. It grabs search results from a multitude of other sites—the back-end technology is a lot more complicated than you'd think—to bring bus options, including Megabus, Bolt Bus, Go Bus, DC2NY, and other modern shuttles, to a single s...

New Hotel Bidding Site Stayful.com Cuts Out the Chains and Slashes Rates on the Boutiques

By Jason Cochran

Posted on 11/20/2013, 5:45 PM

Although the big Web hotel reservations booking engines are undoubtedly helpful and convenient, they also tend to favor the same old corporate chains. But a newly launched booker aims to tap into consumer restlessness and cut those cookie-cutter Sheratons and Marriotts out of the running, giving boutique properties a leg up in pitching for last-minute business. It’s called Stayful.com...

An Oversupply of Luxury Hotel Rooms in Prague is Rewarding Tourists with Major Bargains

By Jason Cochran

Posted on 11/18/2013, 11:30 PM

Prague seems to have gotten a little ahead of itself, at least where luxury hotels are concerned. In the summertime, its nicest four- and five-star properties are fairly full, but in winter, the tourist trade contracts. What's more, one of Prague's most reliable markets, tourists from Germany, often treats Prague as a quick getaway of a night or two. Hoteliers are left eager to extend barg...

By Arthur Frommer

Posted on 11/17/2013, 4:45 AM

     Earlier in the year, we chronicled the adventure known as "The Re-Launch of the Frommer Travel Guides"--a project occupying the lives of my daughter and myself on a seven-day-a-week, dawn-to-midnight basis, throughout those months.       As you may have heard, we re-acquired these books, and have now worked together with the best of our authors--almost always persons living in the cit...

In a Step that May Lead to Many More Delightful Offerings, the Free-of-Charge Walking Tour Has Come to America (And Most Recently to New Orleans)

By Arthur Frommer

Posted on 11/15/2013, 6:15 PM

     Starting now, visitors to New Orleans may enjoy a free-of-charge, two-hiour walking tour of the city's highlights, conducted by an historian of that town's exotic history.  Instead of introducing you to what are probably inaccurate and untrue tales of ghosts and vampires, New Orleans' new walking tour is a serious but highly entertaining exploration of the actual events that resulted in t...

Though the D.O.J. Claims that Cheap Airlines Will be Helped by the American Airlines/U.S. Airways Merger, We've Heard That Song Before

By Arthur Frommer

Posted on 11/15/2013, 4:00 PM

In a sad development for the traveling American, the Department of Justice has dropped its opposition to the merger between American Airlines and U.S. Airways, settled the lawsuit it had brought against that combination, and announced it would permit this further monopolization of our skies.  When that same proposal was first announced several months ago, it seemed inconceivable that the two c...

A Study Suggests That the Benefits of Educational Travel Are Far More Far-Reaching Than Most Realize

By Pauline Frommer

Posted on 11/14/2013, 5:15 PM

In 2000, Reid Bramblett, a writer and long-time scout leader in Pennsylvania, took 9 members of his Boy Scout troop to Europe for nearly a month (along with two other adults). One of the participants was a 16-year-old who suffered from dyslexia, never had done well in school, and worked part-time a gas station. His goal was to go to a technical school after high school and become a mechanic. ...
