I have bought Rick Steves books before and found them quite helpful. For my trip that included Denmark, Norway and Sweden I wanted a more rural / back road / small town experience. This book seemed to focus more on bigger cities. This book was not helpful for my trip. Will still buy Steve’s books in the future. Just This one didn’t do me much good.

Everything Rick Steves releases is beneficial to anyone planning to travel on their own. Using his books even allows those who want to go on tours to see what SHOULD be seen on a tour. Simply a great source of info for all travelers!

Is it just me, or are Rick Steves wonderful books losing a little. I swear there was a time when he gave precise directions for getting to, in, through, and out of airline terminals, railroad stations, etc. And to have committed more ink to getting into and out of the related urban centers. My latest round of these books all seem to have dispensed with that information -- and it was useful.

Rick Steves comes through again. His travel guides are always helpful, and stay up to date. Easy references for must-do's and tour ideas. We have used UK, Spain, Bavaria, and others over the years. This one is no different.

This book is as solid as the standard Rick Steves guide books are. He offers reliable descriptions of country information, resources and general travel guidance. I have numerous travel books by him and always have found them to be an excellent resource, especially for any hotels or shops that he recommends.

Love his details and the ability to access his updates but wish I had done this as a Kindle download rather than in print Much more practical for the traveler on the move

It is not local enough. Just breezing through the main tourist spots. Good for a general read, may be just as a starting point. Need more research

Loved the book. We now have our plane and boat tickets booked. Rick gives great details that we could not find in other books. Highly recommend this if you are going to travel in that direction.

The book was most helpful for its walking tours, museum visits and ratings of tourist sites in each location. It is less helpful on restaurants.
