Disappointing and not up to date,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Insight Pocket Guide: Dubrovnik (Insight Pocket Guides) (Paperback)
Slightly bulky for a pocket guide we found the contents disappointing. "Follow the city walls clockwise" - it's one way anti clockwise so you have to read the walk guide back to front! Whilst I don't expect a basic guide to double as a dictionary, it's nice to at least be able to greet people and say please and thank you to them in their own language, but you won't even find that in this guide. There is a cable car to the top of the neighbouring hill with a marvellous view over the city and the moving homeland war museum in the old fort at the top. This is something the locals impressed on us we should see - not even mentioned in the guide, so no info on times, prices, location of base station - not even a mention of its existence.
I saw it advertised as a 2012 guide. Please note that it is the 2010 guide reprinted, but not updated, in 2012 so prices etc are well out of date. I'll stick to Berlitz and Top Ten guides in future!

A slight apology to the guide, I have subsequently found a mention in the text of the homeland war museum and the "future" cable car - but neither mentioned in the index.
I still rate it 2 star! Alastair.
