  • Of course it is still a great book but it is not in my pedestal of a perfect book of other years.
    I was a LP follower but I’m disapointed and started to think that it has some suspicious info. For example it recommends with a color frame a specific place in Segovia to try a dessert “ponche segoviano”, I was happy to find it and find out that the dessert was not great for my taste. Locals told me that there are several better places to try the real one, and in general told that the recommendadtion was not ok to be mentioned with such an emphasis. I did so, ordered it in another restaurant, and found out a great dessert experience.
    The way the Barcelona maps are divided by zones may not the best distribution, good try in a complicated issue.
    Best values to improove or to dedícate more lines:
    The self walk tours routes are the best and a good value to avoid the big mess of information on the webb.
    Dedicate more lines for the 1-2-3, etc. day recommendations.
    Mention more info on things that may make you loose time or give more “warnings”.
    Some times the recommendation is not clear, looks like the author wants to be Ok with every body and does not have freedom to write his recommendations to avoid resentful parties.
  • I am currently studying abroad in Spain and this book has dozens of recommendations for things to see and do at all price ranges. For larger cities, it prioritizes things to do as well. The only thing I don’t like are the restaurant recommendations, as a college student, I cannot afford many of the expensive restaurants they typically suggest.
  • This is an incredibly thorough and well thought out guide. It covers information/ suggestions from a wide variety of areas of interest- sports, food, history for example. Great touring suggestions for short or long term trips, too. I highly recommend it.
