Review: Rick Steves' London 2007 (Rick Steves' City and Regional Guides)

User Review  - Loralee - Goodreads

This book was basically my bible when it came to planning our trip to London. I read it cover to cover probably three or four times before we left, and flipped through it almost constantly while we were there. Highly recommend it. Read full review
