I used the most recent guide on our five-day trip to Amsterdam this summer, and it was immensely helpful. It gave us information on how to get back and forth to the airport, navigating around the city, and taking walking tours throughout the city. Thanks to this guide, I didn't have that "did we miss anything?" feeling that I often get at the end of a vacation.

Rick Steves is the travelin' MAN. He brought me to a working class one pot/dish cafeteria style kitchen in Haarlam that was absolutely amazing. Had I not brought this guidebook, there is no way I would have found it. Rick Steves is geared towards all sorts of travelers so this is a great round about reference. Highly recommend!

Great advice on things to see while in Amsterdam etc. His recommendations are good for those looking for main-stream and off-the-beaten-path experiences. If you go to Bruges, check out the little hole in the wall pub recommended by Steves- it really is perfect.

Once again, this book had all the tips to make our trip through Amsterdam, Brussels, and Bruges wonderful. Some of my favorite tips that he recommended were renting bikes in Bruges to ride to the nearby town of Damm and a small brewery tour in Bruges.

Great guidebook. His restaurant recommendation's were especially good. Jon couldn't keep Rick Steve's name straight and kept referring to "Rick James" recommendations, as in "Rick James said this place was good."

The edition I have from the public library was published in 2011. As before I didn't read all or even much of these guides, but I find them valuable and worthwhile.

Rick Steves is a master at travel! His travel guides are informative, but at the same time quirky and humorous. You can't go wrong with this travel expert.

Rick Steves has taken me on more good vacations... hope this leads to one more. Good stuff and reference that I'll bring to Belgium.

I am very excited to see how accurate this book is to the places he has suggested and to try another of his walking/biking tours.
