Simm Suchak (reader), London, UK: "I lived in France for a year and this book was like my bible. There were so many times I would have got lost without the maps. You even know where the tourist office is before you arrive, and all the information was spot-on. What I found especially useful was the 'classmark sysytem' of the price of hotels and youth hostels. We had most of it booked before we even arrived, which was such a godsend when we arrived there knackered! Fantastic even for a student backpacker." Times Literary Supplement. "Pithy and descriptive ... undoubtedly the backpacker's bible, but invaluable for almost every independent traveller."
