The best packing tip I ever got:
After packing your your bag, take out half the amount of clothes in it. Add twice the amount of money to your budget.

*Frommer's* never fails me. I've traveled extensively and all those other guides (Lonely Planet, Fodor's, Let's Go, etc.) have always disappointed me in one way or another. Their suggested itineraries are very well thought out. Frommer's suggestions are not for budget travelers, however, you can make work for your budget. For example, my husband and I never stay in their suggested hotels and save, but we do go to their suggested restaurants, and, if you are a foodie, this is the guide for you. Another validation for me: The New York Times travel section usually posts Frommer's suggestions.
*National Geographic* is my runner up. Their maps are accurate. The information on places, monuments, history, neighborhoods, etc. are almost encyclopedic, without being heavy. These guides are beautiful. All the information is accompanied by the gorgeous photography for which National Geographic is know for. A tip for amateur photographers: When you get to the places shown in the guidebook, try to copy their photographs with your own camera. You will get some awesome travel picture trophies and you will impress everyone back home. =)
