Best Rick Steves' book I have used,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rick Steves' Budapest (Paperback)
I travel a good bit and have used Rick Steves' books for other destinations but this book was by far the best one I have used. The advice was outstanding and spot on (though I didn't go to the public bath which the author loves). I made the cost of the book back on the taxi back to the airport alone. Knowing what the official company prices were (capped at 3990 FT at FOTaxi) I was able to avoid my Hotel's cab (and had them call me the other company that night to pick me up for my AM flight). I did a couple of the walking tours which were outstanding. Description of where the ATMs near my incoming train station was, the hidden Metro platform near the park, etc. etc. were all indispensable. Hope to go to Budapest again and will definitely carry Rick Steves' with me.
