With every passing European trip (I've now had the pleasure of touring London, Paris, the Dordogne valley, Switzerland and Sicily), I'm realizing that my travel skills are becoming sharper as is my ability to judge the merits of the dizzying array of choices of travel guides available for the travelling public.

My first choice continues to be the Eyewitness series in their TOP 10 format ... in this case, "Top 10 Budapest". I would suggest that it be complemented by the somewhat more comprehensive "Budapest".

The Top 10 format is entirely self-explanatory, a list of Top 10 sights that are must-sees for any first time tourist in a given city or country. Depending on the destination, the Top 10 lists become increasingly more detailed and may include, for example, top 10 churches, museums, children's attractions, festivals, events, restaurants, cafés, pubs, parks and so on. In the second half of each book, the information is effectively repeated but organized by neighbourhood, so the prospective tourist might make the most effective use of limited time touring a given area in a city or country without missing anything of interest.

The information is all linked to beautiful photographs and allows a potential traveler to make sensible choices in advance according to his or her personal tastes. Most telling is the fact that each Top 10 title makes no attempt to be comprehensive. It is absolutely, positively aimed at the first time tourist attempting to do a one shot overview of a city or country. If that is your objective, there is little question that the DK Eyewitness Top 10 series is the hands down winner against all the competition - Blue Guide, Green Guide, Rough Guide, National Geographic, Frommer or Michelin.

I bought this book and Rick Steve's Budapest for my trip since they were the top rated books on Amazon for Budapest(This to carry around and Rick Steve's to read at the hotel). This book basically tells you the touristy places and lacks any insight into Budapest besides the superficial ones you can gain in less than a week. For instance, it says Vaci Utca is the heart and souls of the city. After visiting it, I was surprised it was so shallow and uninteresting. Rick Steve's, however, correctly says this is a waste of time Tourist trap that the locals never go to. Locals actually hang out in other areas (Liszt Frenc Square, Opera, etc.) which are much more visit worthy. Same was true about other advice in the book (There is no shuttle between the airport terminals, etc. etc.). Basically the "Top 10" places are not really the top 10 places if the guide had spent more than a week in Budapest. Budapest is a great city I need to visit again but I wish I knew this book was useless for its advice so I could have utilized my time more efficiently by just following Rick Steve's (even though it is harder to carry around).

I purchased these for my daughter and friends upon their request. They found these books to be extremely well done and helpful. They said the maps and additional info for the country made getting around and sightseeing a breeze. As a matter of fact, they enjoyed them so much that they will not allow me to post and resell them! They are going to keep them for perhaps a future trip! Money well spent!

Super handy, great to keep in my back pocket when walking the streets of Budapest. I've lent it to friends for their next trip. Oh, the little pocket map was awesome for when I didn't want to carry the book.

I was in Budapest for only two and a half days, singing a concert in the Matthias Church in the center of the Castle district. By reading this book, I was alerted to a great restaurant, and in my very brief visit, I managed to have one of the best meals of my life. Its recommendations are succinct and spot on.

This is a great series!

I really like this series of books. With all of the pictures and information it makes planning an itinerary very easy. After the trip these books are also great to put on the coffee table.

I would suggest these to anyone starting to research a place to visit.
