Wanderlust Magazine: You've got to applaud Marco Polo's chutzpah to launch 30 new city/island guidebooks into an already pretty crowded market. Aiming to occupy the middle ground between the context-heavy luggage fillers and the context-free thinner volumes, the main USPs of these user-friendly guides are the plentiful 'Insider tips' dotted around each edition, the maps they're packaged with, and the pocket cheering price (£6.99 each). Complete with near-magazine style features, they're certainly a less intimidating proposition than some of the big wedges on offer. --Wanderlust Magazine

I've booked a tour of Scandinavia, so was delighted to be offered this book (plus its bigger version, the 'Travel Handbook') for review.
Bearing in mind that this smaller book is roughly half the cost, and much smaller and lighter, it still seems to contain loads of information and colour photos. A few pages of introduction, a timeline for the history, and some basic facts in the 'In a Nutshell' section (trolls, politics, fishing...) plus (maybe for the younger traveller) a couple of pages of - very interesting - "What's Hot" (staying in a lighthouse, climbing a waterfall...) I was also quite taken with the "Insider Tips" - where can you listen to classical music with seagulls in background, or play golf while watching the midnight sun...
The guide itself takes you round the country region by region (mentioning low-budget option hotels/ things to do).
Afterwards come short sections on possible tours, sports and travel with kids. Plus festivals and relevant computer links, and some basic Norwegian. And it's excellent for maps! - a street map of Oslo, a road atlas and then a full pull-out map of Norway in back pocket (1 inch =36.3 miles).
If you just want a small, light basic travel book, I absolutely can't fault it.

The map in the back was useful but I think they've tried to be all things to all men so individual listings are too brief.Published 12 months ago by R O.
