The Penguin NZ Travel Guide North island by Diana and Jeremy Pope (Penguin)

Neil's picture

This is the 2009 revised version of what was originally the Mobil Guide, published in 1973. It was, and is, a deserved classic. The historical sections are terrific - clear, concise, interesting and colourful. The facts and figures are helpful, and the recommendations of sights worth visiting are spot on. This book should be in every car glovebox, it certainly makes any road trip around the North Island even more interesting!
