4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview, but lacks detail 30 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this knowing that it wouldn't exactly fit my needs. However, it seemed to be the best general guide to the region. Ideally, I would prefer more detailed information about the history and culture of the various countries and less on eating and shopping. As we were visiting 6 countries in 12 days, and couldn't take individual guides, it was an acceptable compromise.

3.0 out of 5 stars Should be twice the size 9 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What's there is quite good but for such a large area this book should have much more detail. Too much focus on the capitals and large cities - it's not that I want less of this, just more about the more rural parts and smaller places. Almost completely ignores campers too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great companion 6 Jun 2012
By Sam
My brother bought me this book as a present before I went travelling across Norway, Sweden and Denmark. It was particularly useful in helping to: 1) Find my bearings when I got to a place, and 2) Identify the best things to do once I'd got settled.

The best thing about this guide is its accessibility; it's obviously been written by travellers for travellers, and continously refined to ensure you can quickly and painlessly identify the information you require.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Useful Data 27 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Buying a book covering multiple countries always has some limitations, however as we were visiting both Denmark and Sweden we needed info for both. Covered both countries with enough useful details and helpful hints.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 20 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Adverts to download the (paid for) app for the most up to date info and advice such as you can buy ferry tickets from ferry companies at the port without listing the names of the companies or links to their websites is just lazy and poor.
