Top Customer Reviews
I bought this book because my Dutch girlfriend was interested to see what the LP covered in her native land.
I've been using this guide for a few months to give me an idea of what cities and places in the Netherlands I would want to visit. It's a good resource for planning my sight-seeing, but after that I prefer to use HostelWorld.com and the local VVV offices for lodging and maps. The VVV maps are usually more detailed than the LP maps anyway
Another area of disappointment is the print quality of the city map sections. The monochrome renditions are extremely hard to read and find landmarks on and are thus of little practicle value to the average tourist.
Money is better spent on Michelin, Rick Steves or Eyewitness guides.

Not as helpful as I had hoped. We took a trip to the Netherlands and it was a bit cumbersome to use there.Published on December 9, 2013 by mspete1
Planning a future trip, and looking for clues (not many) to my ancestors' lives prior to 1920. But a good read even if you aren't traveling there, just skip the tourist stuff.Published on May 4, 2013 by Marilyn Hoogstraten
It's really a well balance guide. With the important information and travel tips.
I will use it a lot in my next trip.
The (little) chapter on the Dutch language is pretty nonsensical but otherwise it is helpful.
I am not so sure about the advise on bicycles. Read more
An intensive study of Irish life leading up to and during WWII. Especially heavy on the intellectual and artistic areas. Light on the interaction with the British military. Read morePublished on August 1, 2012 by tjgphx
