Fodor's Travel Guides


Founder Eugene Fodor pioneered the concept of the modern guidebook in 1936, when he created a new travel guide that travelers found more inspiring than the existing collections of facts and figures other guidebooks offered. He wrote On the Continent–The Entertaining Travel Annual, a guide to Europe which made three important innovations: it went beyond reporting on the sights and for the first time included information about Europe’s culture and people. Second, Fodor included practical information for the modern traveler, such as what size tip to leave at a Viennese café. Third, On the Continent was an annual guide, so that Fodor’s readers would have the most current information.

Today, the drive to innovate remains as fundamental to Fodor’s as the passion for excellence. We seek to hire local writers who know their destinations better than anyone else. Our worldwide team of over 700 travel writers bring you the latest, most accurate coverage, and like trusted companions, reveal local treasures and everything you need to know before you hit the ground. Both online and in print, Fodor’s readers can count on engagingly written, intelligently and accurately reported, and absolutely indispensable travel guidance.

Covering over 300 destinations worldwide, Fodor’s guidebooks are written for a variety of travelers who have one thing in common–they are seeking the best travel options available within their budget, including the best places to stay, eat, shop, and see. A complete list of Fodor’s travel guides can be found at www.fodors.com, along with up-to-the minute trip planning information, bargains, and advice from the most knowledgeable travel community on the web.
