Aug 21, 20191/2: My go-to for guidebooks to European citiesâ€”- Rick focuses on the best sites, offering historical context, efficient routes, and time and money-saving tips. His personality comes through in the pages, so it feels like heâ€™s along for the ride. Even the best guidebook, however, can never keep abreast of all changes, but Rick and his crew â€œkeep on travellinâ€™â€ for his programs, podcasts, and FB posts.

Jul 16, 2019Thanks rick and team!
Dec 18, 2015Checked this book out from the library in preparation for a month long trip this coming summer, planning on just reading the sections on the cities we were already planning on going to and ended up reading it cover to cover like a novel. Beautifully constructed, well written, and compiled with an eye for genuine experiences over fancy cultivated ones.
Oct 08, 2016I just got back from a Rick Steves tour through Portugal for two weeks and used his book to see things in my off time that were not part of the tour. The book was informative as well as accurate! I was able to use his directions and maps in the book to navigate around the cities of Portugal fairly easily. His insights and ratings of city highlights were on point and his restaurant recommendations never failed! I will always travel around Europe with a RS book in my hand!
Apr 14, 2015Usually Rick Steves is my go-to guy for travel books, but this one didn't meet my needs. He does such a thorough job of explaining economical and easy ways to sightsee his favorite sites, but he skips over those he doesn't like--and three of the towns we're visiting in Portugal he doesn't like. So it wasn't as helpful as it could have been, but if we were going to Lisbon and Spain it would have been great.
Jul 06, 2016If travelling to Portugal excellent book to get you going. However do your own research. For instance beautiful Pineche near Obidos is not covered. There is a bias towards Lisbon and Algarve however Porto and Duoro Valley which is covered is a must see.
Apr 13, 2018Excellent guide and very useful in all the regions we visited (Algarve, Evora, Lisbon/Belem and Sintra); lots of ideas for food places, walks, sights and one superb find the Quinta Regaleiros in Sintra which is really worth the visit ahead of most places there
Mar 21, 2018Disappointing. We have five days in be in Lisbon, and I had hoped for better recommendations. He pushes his own services, TV, tours, etc. That is not wny we bought the book.
Mar 05, 2017As with all of his books, a great introduction to Portugal ahead of our trip there later this year.
Feb 02, 2018Always my go-to tour guide books for all my travels. Love his simple and easy narratives for key sites, culture, history and general local useful info. Can't wait to see Portugal.
Sep 27, 2013I'm going to Lisbon for less than three days and he still managed to get me to read the whole book. Am I a superfan?
Sep 26, 2019Rick Steves walks you through sites (sometimes even literally takes you on historical walks!), accommodations, eateries, and all important details you may need to know about Portugal. He goes into much detail about Portuguese history, which is fascinating, and even includes two pages of Survival Portuguese to help get by in the country.
Dec 01, 2019Excellent source for planning my trip to Portugal. Using his tips I traveled in Cascais, Evora, and Lisbon. I bought the supplement book for the Azores with the intention of visiting again someday.
