I used this ebook to help plan my trip to Paris. What was useful was the information about the new microchip card that American Express and Visa have to use that is more secure when purchasing items in Europe as eventually here in the US. I was in time to get a new American Express card but not able to get one for my Visa as they are still working on it. I also learned about Wells Fargo has a special debit card to use in Europe so that it's not linked to your checking account but a separate account that you need to set up at the bank. The hotels and the cafes listed were okay but not any of the ones that we decided to choose to either stay or eat at.

Rick Steves let me down this time! I purchased the book because I was headed to northern France for the summer. Unfortunately, if you are going north of Paris, this book is no help at all. Otherwise it seems to be as good as usual, but should not be called "France."

After seven trips to Italy with the RS guide in hand we're branching out to France this May. Steves' approach to travel is refreshing and his tips on travelling light and becoming part of the local culture have made previous trips memorable.

I have bought several Rick Steves books in the past and I have found them very helpful in planning my European trips. He gives great insights about how to save time avoiding lines by buying tickets in other ways than standing in line at the site. His restaurant suggestions are usually very good. This is the first time I bought the kindle edition. I normally like to have the book in hand when traveling, but I love the fact that I can clink on the link in the book and it takes you to the website for the hotel, restaurant or tour.

This book is very informative. We recently visited France starting in Arles going to Paris then to Normandy. The information in this book was a very big help in deciding which historical sites, markets, shopping and museums to visit. It also was one of the keys in helping us decide which areas in France to visit since the only dead set date was meeting up with friends in Paris midway through our trip.
I highly recommend this book to anyone planning on visiting France this year.

This e-book makes planning my trip much easier. I can mark and make notes that are saved. Now I don't have to carry a bulky and heavy book on the trip. While reading I can click on a link and make all the reservations while reading.!!! Super!

I got it on Kindle, so I can easily carry it on my notebook and use it while in France. One of my passengers can even use it while we are driving. Prior to the trip is helps me plan my stays in various cities. I am planning to camp, so the book is no help on where to stay. I like the Kindle version better because it is so easy to find the exact information you need. Printed indexes are awkward to use. I plan to spend about 20 days in France this summer.

Rick Steves is the best!! This book is no exception. I buy his books before I travel. He has a way of explaining things that gives you the confidence to travel like a local.

Rick Steves guidebooks are perfect for those who are a little nervous about new places and need a lot of very explicit how-to's and hand-holding. As very seasoned and intrepid independent travelers and former tour leaders ourselves, we seldom fall into that category. However, next month we're traveling to a number of previously unvisited places in Spain, rural Portugal and France's Dordogne, and I find Rick's detailed, focused info on the areas he considers worthy of attention helpful, since some of them coincide with out own travel objectives this time around. For those areas of France (or other countries in his other guides) he's not fond of, you can forget it -- you're just plain out of luck. Historical/cultural information is skimpy though enthusiastic. I am a 1110% backer of his back-door philosophy of travel and wish fervently that more Americans would adopt it. My husband and I too often find ourselves embarrassed by fellow American travelers who bring a lot of ignorance and a boatload of unrealistic expectations in their oversized luggage!
