Most people have their favourite print guide, app or blog when visiting a city. I certainly have mine and usually use a mixture of all of the above. Of course a good hotel concierge is also worth their weight in gold.
It's important to have good local tips that are up to date, there's nothing worse than trying to book a restaurant only to find it no longer exists. I'll hold my hand up here, this happened to me recently in Miami. Most city breaks are short and you want to ensure all recommendations are top notch. Enter Porter & Sail.

I have yet to try this for myself but hopefully will check it out in the near future. I love the idea of having current recommendations that you can trust without having to spend hours researching beforehand. Watch this space!
