5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect guidebook companion - awesome for iPhone Kindle reader!, February 12, 2010

This review is from: Rick Steves' Snapshot Madrid & Toledo (Rick Steves Snapshot) (Kindle Edition)
GET THIS E-BOOK!!! I debated whether it would be worth the money before I took a big month-long trip to Spain this past October/November 2009. Rick Steves just does not disappoint! The most useful feature (there are tons) in the Snapshot city guide e-books are the self-guided tours. There are crowd-beating tips, updated cost, hours, locations, phone numbers, maps, self-guided walking tours in the city...For so little money, you can save yourself a world full of headaches. He also points out cool things to see in the Madrid that aren't in other tour books (like rowing a boat in the lake in Parque de Retiro), and he gives invaluable tips of the good places to go for everything (food, entertainment, museums, neighborhoods, etc). Also, the local free tourist maps they give you are usually anemic by way of detailed, accurate information. Having this little tool as a backup is critical when you may not have time to hunt down bigger books and maps. It also gives you info about surrounding cities you may like to visit, as well as tips on language, money, phoning...Plus, it fits in your pocket (I used it on my iPhone with the Kindle reader). You don't look like a tourist dork reading your iPhone, like you do lugging around maps and books. You look way cooler...
I loved this e-book bc it also included Toledo. There is a tourist info office in the main square area in Toledo (Zocodover Square), but it won't boil down the city for a day trip like Rick Steves does. No one makes a city come alive like Rick Steves!!!
