Pros

Rick steves books are my favorite travel guides. Have never been steered wrong by arick steves guidebook.

Great way to find all the little gems when traveling. Thank you, rick, for making travel so accessible for so many.



Cons

Steves has a grudge against valencia and by not acknowledging it's existence he is getting back at it. Do yourself a favor and get fodor's or a lonely planet guide to spain. This guide is woefully incomplete.

    However, for entertainment and dining, i felt the book missed out many places.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Some of the prices and hours are a little off in the sevilla and santiago de compostela chapters.

    And have very rarely ever noted the food or accommodations recommended to be worthwhile.

    Had to buy another book for that one.

    I was constantly flipping back and forth between the different versions of maps he has.

    I feel like lonely planet does a better job with their maps.

    Handy and tore it apart as suggested while in spain

    Unfortunately i found the info pretty light on southern spain and the costa del sol so i had to get the lonely planet book on andalucia to really cover all of spain.
