However, I think it is a bit limited in terms of choice and offers a very specific type of holiday (Lots of eating and drinking, not too much sight seeing) and its important to note that its setup for people that like to travel at the upper end of the spectrum of cost. Some of the places it recommends to stay / eat at, are not reviewed highly elsewhere either.
For the right sort of traveller, that just wants to be told what to do in a city and is happy following a specific guide, then this book is excellent. For everyone else you'll probably get better value in other books elsewhere.
