5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful Even After Your Trip 14 Jun 2012
By S. Lam - Published on Amazon.com
We had both the Fodor's and Rick Steve's guide books - both are fine but the Fodor's is hands-down the one with the most information. We were on a tour which was pretty fast paced - from Barcelona, the Northern Pyrenees to Madrid. While I found it helpful to read beforehand what we would see, I have found it invaluable to reread the information in the Fodor's as I work with my many photo images.
The map of Spain was very helpful in order to get a sense of the Northern part of Spain.
The Fodor's is a bit on the heavy side compared to Rick Steve's - they really are both good, but I am more impressed with the Fodor's. There are many full colored illustrations which were helpful. Lots of information on Gaudi's work in Barcelona.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spain in Full Color! 5 Jun 2012
By Shira Danielle Levy - Published on Amazon.com
I have used many Fodor's travel guides previously, but the new 2012 format is a big improvement over past issues. Besides the beautiful photos, the guide is well-organized and includes many insightful tidbits in order to navigate any Spanish city with ease. The restaurant recommendations were especially helpful and we stayed at 2 of the recommended hotels with excellent results. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a more comprehensive guide as it was definitely more detailed than the Lonely Planet guide that we also took along on our trip. The only thing that could have been more accruate were museum/attraction hours, but those often change in Spain and it is understandable that they were slightly off. For anyone who travels frequently, Fodor's is the best!

1.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre 30 Dec 2012
By Benjamin M. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We recently visited Spain for the 1st time, on a family vacation. I consulted several travel guides before leaving, and took only 2 of them with us, this one and Rick Steves' book. Left the DK Eyewitness book at home - totally useless. The Fodor was both extremely heavy, and fairly useless. When I tried to use it, or cross reference from RS's book I discovered that the Fodor's book had incorrect information - times, locations - the sort of thing you want right. A couple of times it seemed pretty clear that the authors had pulled some of the info from webpages of the sites in question, but that information did not in fact refer to the site. For example, one museum in Barcelona had as it's opening hours, the hours of the business office, which did not correspond to the museum itself.
Save your money, look elsewhere.

Perfect for a quick and smart trip! I love the colour maps. I'd like to have more information about small towns and villages too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Span travel guide 7 Oct 2012
By Erick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While it may be a bit on the heavy side since it is so long, it is exceptionally thorough and has great pictures, maps, side notes etc. I would suggest you rely on this before travel since it covers so much and is very informative in prepping you for your journey. Even though it says 2012, this version was a little dated on some information - like 2011.
