It's a weird question because some cities are very tourist friendly in terms of infrastructure that can support making being a tourists easier, but they also have more tourist-related scams at same.

I'd say most irritating = Agra, India.
Easiest = Boquete, Panama

Most of the major European cities are tourist friendly but Prague, Brugges & Edinburgh are a few standouts.

Las Vegas is an obvious choice. The Yucatan peninsula is extremely tourist friendly as well.

less friendly imo would be Paris & Amsterdam. Not because they're difficult to get around but I just didn't find either city a particularly comfortable place to be.

Hard question to answer - I think it also depends to some degree on how friendly the tourist is too. Some of my friends are universal travellers and can easily get advice wherever they go. Others have a harder time, but knowing their personalities...its not a surprise.

Paris and London are my favourite tourist destinations and I can spend months in these cities visiting the iconic attractions. When I think about honeymoon trips, Paris comes in my mind first.

LOL...LA is not all that nice to tourists. However, as the question I get most often from tourists is how to find the home of the celebrity they are looking for, it gets old. And, I am sure we are not nice to the tourists....
