During her travels to Malta, an older man tried to give her some advice based on his own experience living on the island since he was a young boy.

She created this book series to give you as a tourist an inside view on the place you are exploring and the ability to learn what locals would like to tell tourists.

I think the series is wonderful and beneficial for tourists to get information before visiting the city.
-Seckin Zumbul, Izmir Turkey
I am a world traveler who has read many trip guides but this one really made a difference for me. I would call it a heartfelt creation of a local guide expert instead of just a guide.
-Susy, Isla Holbox, Mexico
New to an area like me, this is a must-have!
-Joe, Bloomington, USA
This is a good series that gets down to it when looking for things to do at your destination without having to read a novel for just a few ideas.
-Rachel, Monterey, USA
Good information to have to plan my trip to this destination.

Great ideas for a port day.
-Mary Martin USA
Aptly titled, you won’t just be a tourist after reading this book. You’ll be greater than a tourist!
-Alan Warner, Grand Rapids, USA
Even though I only have three days to spend in San Miguel in an upcoming visit, I will use the author’s suggestions to guide some of my time there. An easy read – with chapters named to guide me in directions I want to go.
-Robert Catapano, USA
Great insights from a local perspective! Useful information and a very good value!
This series provides an in-depth experience through the eyes of a local. Reading these series will help you to travel the city in with confidence and it’ll make your journey a unique one.
