    This review is from: Rick Steves’ Europe Through the Back Door 2013: The Travel Skills Handbook (Paperback)

    I am a well-seasoned traveler with international experience but will be visiting Paris for the first time this spring…as always I extensively “review” the ins n’ outs of visiting any new place and have been reading several travelguides and other literature on the City of Lights. I stumbled across Rick Steve’s book and, always hating not to be ‘in the know’, ordered the book and have just completed it over the holiday. Excellent!! Spot on and filled with valuable information and insights – especially useful for the unseasoned traveler although even for a well-honed visiter to far afields I found some great nuggets of valuable info. One difference is that although I love a bargain I prefer a bit more ‘up scale’ accomodations and ease than the target audience for Rick but am, like the individuals he is writing for, someone who prefers to go off the travel group grid and plunge into other cultures and places and peoples. The book is especially useful to shed off the Ugly American Tourist practices that all too many traveling folks from the USA bring along on board with their checked baggage (I’ve seen the UATs myself and it ain’t purdy). I would make this mandatory reading for those delving into travel abroad if I could!

    I’m so glad I purchased this handbook…..I’ve been reading several books on
    travelling in Europe and they all have given me a greater understanding of
    what to expect……but Rick’s book really puts the icing on the travel cake…
    Thanks for sharing your wisdom…..can’t wait to go!
