About the Author
Steve Smith manages tour planning for Rick Steves' Europe Through the Back Door and has been researching guidebooks with Rick for two decades. Fluent in French, he's lived in France on several occasions, starting when he was seven, and has traveled there annually since 1986. Steve's wife, who is an expert on French cuisine and wine, provides invaluable contributions to his books, as do his two children.
Gene Openshaw is a writer, composer, tour guide, and lecturer on art and history. Specializing in writing walking tours of Europe's cultural sights, Gene has coauthored 10 of Rick's books and contributes to Rick's public television series. As a composer, Gene has written a full-length opera (Matter), a violin sonata, and dozens of songs. He lives near Seattle with his daughter, and roots for the Mariners in good times and bad.

This Paris guide is no different. Again he has great comprehensive information about a variety of areas, covering multiple interests and budgets. His guidebooks tend to be more informative rather than just a seeming telephone book of hotels and restaurants with phone numbers and times (though he does have a good list of those for each area). He has a lot of self-guided walks through Paris as well, which I found to be really helpful the last time I was there (and way cheaper than taking an expensive tour!). Overall, I'm very pleased with the quality and detail of his books and am very much looking forward to my next trip to Paris this winter!
I have used metro pass and the museum pass in the past and the book does tell you it is more cost effective to by the book of carnets for the metro and if you are concentrating on one or two museums, it does not pay to buy the pass.. It is true. The tips in the book helped me save money. The money I saved more than paid for the book.
I would recommend the book for travelers to Paris. When I came home I donated it to my local library so other may use the book.
