And if you’re like me, and like a city guide handy, then handy is definitely for you;) The city guide comes with reviews, suggestions, itineraries and ‘best of’ lists across attractions, shopping, dining, nightlife and more. Another plus point is that, through handy, you can get discount deals which you can buy through the phone.
