4.0 out of 5 stars WHAT DO YOU WANT 17 Jan 2011
By A. Taylor TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A small book, some 4"x6" and under " thick, it's a nice size for carrying in ones pocket.

The area it covers encompasses both the Rhine and the Mosel Valleys so, as you can imagine, some of the towns, and as far as I have been able to check it mentions just about all of the towns and villages along the Rhine, don't get much space. For example Breisach gets about 2 column inches, but within that space one gets the main points of info, what's worth looking at and some brief background information. There are lots of maps both within the main body and also at the back, there is even a `large' pull-out one covering on one side a relief map of the Rhine area and on the other the distances between the various towns etc., very handy.

The text, which is clearly written and is not to small either, is certainly easily readable, and there are plenty of photographs, though of a necessarily small size. There is also a comprehensive index at the back. One slight annoyance is that occasionally the page numbers are omitted.

Overall, it's a handy little book with a reasonable amount of information on most places. Having said that if you are a keen walker it probably won't contain enough detail, information on trackways and paths is not available within but then that's not it's purpose. Would have liked just a little more on the smaller towns hence only 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Guide 10 Oct 2011
By SPY
Format:Paperback
My husband and I have just returned from a river cruse along the Rhine and Main rivers and the Danube canal. Our three Tour Managers had limited knowledge of the places we visited and this little book certainly made up the deficit with useful maps for finding our way around. It is light and fits easily into a pocket or handbag. An essential purchase for this type of holiday.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Useful 6 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've headed this 'very useful' because that's what this publication is. It is not a fully comprehensive guide to the Rhine and all its tributaries but used, as I did, for basic information to take with me on a cruise on the Rhine it was invaluable. At about 160 pages and 14 x 10cms it is ideal for putting in your pocket for instant use when other material is not available. The fold-out map, while not hugely detailed, shows the surrounding area in enough detail to be useful when on excursions away from the river, as well as locating where you are in relation to the main centres of population not on the river. The town and city maps are another good practical addition. As I said, very useful, especially when used in conjunction with more detailed information of any areas of interest. It could, of course, be used even if you were not river-based but just following its course.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Rhine Comprehensive pocket guide 27 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This guide is pretty comprehensive for someone contemplating a trip down the Rhine and contains a lot of city facts and maps, including a fold out map of the highlights of the tour. It has to be commended as there is little copetition out there!

2.0 out of 5 stars SMALL: Small size, even small detail! 11 Sep 2013
By Sparky
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was such a disappointment. Its only redeeming factor is the size which makes it very easy to carry around, but you probably wont want to bother as the contribution it makes to places along the Rhine is minimal. Its comment on towns and sites is so shallow it doesn't even whet the appetite. If you are looking for a guide book that will tell you the best places and features to see along the Rhine I suggest you look elsewhere. It took just minutes after picking up this book when it had arrived, to realise that it had been a waste of money and more than that, frustrating. It just glances over this huge area with such scant detail that there is no point carrying it. Better to research the areas you are about to visit on your iPad & just carry that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not detailed enough 17 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really only wanted a guide book about the middle section of the Rhine. This covers the entire length and as it is only pocket sized there is not enough detailed information. If you are on a river cruise it may be sufficient but I wanted more in a small package!
