Good,but not heavily detailed maps. Good,though brief history coverage.Irritating $$ signs instead of real prices.Mailboat info. Not complete coverage on cheap hotels. Lists sites but nothing off the beaten track. Plenty of detailed trip planning info, could get by with just this one book if not traveling on a tight budget. For those who research prior to trips, this is worth the addition to your library, but you'll need other books to complement it for in-depth research.
