Rick's candid, humorous advice will guide you to good-value hotels and restaurants. You'll learn how to find the right bus in Rome, an inexpensive crêpe in Paris, and which museums and sights are worth your time and money. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves guidebook is a tour guide in your pocket.You'll find a healthy mix of big cities, small towns, and exciting regions, including:London, Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, Prague, and BarcelonaRothenberg, Siena, Toledo, Hallstatt, and GimmelwaldProvence, the French Riviera, the Romantic Road, the Berner Oberland, and the Cinque Terre

Tons of useful and interesting information that you would have to search online in several places to find the same information. It's a heavy book so not one you would want to pack on your trip and carry during the day. But an ideal book for planning ahead of time or taking a pictures of pages you want to remember on your trip.
This is apparently not in depth enough for some people, but I found it detailed enough to help us plan and take our trip to Europe. Rick’s tips saved us from a lot of waiting around. And one tip actually helped us avoid a three-hour wait at the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. And his suggestion to pack light allowed us to haul around a lot less stuff. Worth every penny.
I love how Rick includes a lot of cultural info in his books. This one focuses on some of the major cities and sights in Europe, and he breaks each one down into 3-day itinerary plans to help you get ideas for how to plan your trip. I bought the Kindle version of this book to aid me on my long-term Europe trip, rather than buy each one of his country- or city-specific guides individually. I like the fact that I can highlight certain places in order to quickly find them again when I'm on my trip. His accommodation listings are mostly hotels, upwards of $100 per night, but he does mention alternative options in some cities. I mainly just love his books for the inspiration and the skip-the-line/avoid-the-crowds information.
This book is heavy! Not sure why they recommend it when RS Tours are all about packing as light as possible. They should’ve just made this into an ebook/pdf for download (and ease of updates).
You can't go wrong with a Rick Steves travel guide. I bought this for my son who is getting ready to do a "I just graduated from college and I deserve a break" trip to Europe. I found some things I didn't even think I would need: information on travel insurance, what to do is your passport is lost/stolen. This is a book I will keep and use again and again. And next time its MY turn for a trip to Europe!
If Rick Steves has a book for your destination(s), then do yourself a favor - buy it. You do not need any other guide for your trip. We've just returned from a trip through much of western Europe (London, Paris, Milan, Florence, Venice, Rome, Madrid, Barcelona and Brugge) and this guide was indispensable.

We avoided long lines to visit museums in Venice and Florence, lived in great local hotels and dined in non-touristy and cheap restaurants serving amazing local food. We also had Frommer's with us at the beginning of the trip but we threw it half way through the trip - it was too bulky and did not add any value to our experience.

Rick Steve's conversational style is non-intimidating and makes for a much more interesting read compared to the cut-and-dry, facts only style of other guides. All guides will have some out of date information but this guide is very current. In fact, a tour-guide with a company in Rome that is recommended by Rick Steves' told us that while other publishers just call them every year to verify that they are still in business, only Rick Steves' company actually sends someone to take part in the tours to make sure that the experience is still consistent with the description in the book.

This book is a must have for your Europe trip.
Let me start by stating something that should be obvious: if for whatever reason you do not like Rick Steves, you will not enjoy reading through this guidebook. Although Rick is not the only contributor, it is very much written in his style of speaking. Personally, I think it makes his guidebooks more approachable, especially for people with little travel experience.

This book is more for people who don't really know where in Europe they would like to go, or for those planning a multi-nation trip and would rather not buy an armful of books on each country. That being said, do not limit your trip research to only this book or you will miss other Rick Steves favorite locales that didn't make it into this book. Rick's website (along with his shows and radio/podcasts) has a wealth of information.

Take a look at this book's Table of Contents to see what places are included. Rick includes information on traveling from one place to another (mainly by rail and air), sights (description, costs, hours, websites, phone #s, and his rating), recommended hotels in a variety of price ranges, places to eat, when to see sights in order to avoid long tourist lines, important tips (like which sights you should get reservations for), self-guided walking tours, regular tours, how long you need in each locale, etc.
Seems like a wonderful resource however it doesn’t have Belgium or Luxembourg.
