5.0 out of 5 stars Rick Steves Does it again Aug. 19 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Rick Steves reads more like a narrative than other guide books I have seen. I found this a very handy aid in preparing for my trip. Rick weaves humour into his writing and focuses on the important sights. He tends to cater to a more mature audience. This may not be ideal for those on "lads trips", but overall this is a great guide book for lovers of history and art.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written with a couple of exceptions. April 21 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Generally the book was written well, except the suggestions for visiting Terezin. Rick said to take the bus from Prague and walk between the small fortress and the rest of town - there is no way a middle aged couple (like us) could walk that distance and tour the sites, much less so for someone older.

Also, restaurant suggestions for Old Prague were too general and difficult to understand properly, as there are probably 100 traditional Czech restaurants around, and they all seem to serve the same stuff (mainly roast pork with dumplings).

Excellent guide. Très peu d'illustrations mais il comporte de nombreux renseignements pratiques qu'on ne trouve pas ailleurs. À utiliser en complément avec un autre guide plus détaillé (Voir ou Vert)

5.0 out of 5 stars We used this one the most, by far July 10 2009
By Leonard Koscianski - Published on Amazon.com
Of the three books we took - Rick Steve's Prague, Fodors, and DK this was the most useful. The book is easy to use and easy to read beforehand. I felt prepared when we stepped off the plane. His tours of the major sights are well organized with very good info. His maps are helpful, I referred to them constantly. He himself recommends buying a city map to supplement the book, so do I. We also took his advice when we visited nearby Kutna Hora, the book was very good there as well. Fodors was a little better with food, so bring that one too. When it comes to travel we are do-it-yourselfers. His book was just what we needed. Read the fine print, he even covers details like car rental, money exchange, and telephone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not up to normal Rick standards June 1 2012
By DfwTraveler - Published on Amazon.com
I am normally a huge Rick fan. My friends and I followed Rick's Italy book so closely that we took pictures with the book and were thrilled when we met him at one of his recommended restaurants. That being said- I am not a fan of this book. I have the March 2012 edition. It is not up to his normal standards. It doesn't have the normal detailed walking/museum tours that I have come to rely on. It also doesn't have the guidance about how long to expect a location or area to take. Then this evening I realized that the index in the back doesn't include all the restaurants and cafes that he includes. I am using his Budapest book at the same time and it is vastly superior. I hate to say it but I really would pass on this Rick book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Praguelover Oct. 20 2009
By Margaret Horn - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book provides an excellent overview of the city by sections that include maps, restaurants and hotels, places of interest, and transportation. I liked his helpful comments on money exchange - best to use your ATM card and be sure to let your bank know the country where you will be using it before you leave - (with the exchange rate in the back of the book)and tips on everything from tipping to enjoying a picnic lunch. You can tell he is familiar with the city. His advice to eat at local restaurants is good and one doesn't have to go far to stumble upon one. Whether walking or taking public transportation, Prague is an easy city to get around in and it's reputed beauty doesn't disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to Prague Sept. 2 2008
By Lynn Michelsohn - Published on Amazon.com
Reading this book has helped me understand why Prague has become a top tourist destination. Now I, too, want to explore the architecture, music, food, and history of what sounds like an amazing city. With this book I feel comfortable planning a visit, even without knowing a word of the language. Having used other of Rick Steves' books in the past, I trust him to steer me to enjoyable, safe, and affordable experiences.

As in all of his books, Steves states his approach to travel clearly: he doesn't cover everything, just the "best" places, the best according to him, of course. My tastes and orientation align with his (interesting, moderately priced travel, including as much local immersion as is reasonable), so I rely on his books to provide the wonderful backbones of great trips. For visiting places other than his "best" I use a more comprehensive guide book, like Lonely Planet, in addition to (rather than instead of) his.

5.0 out of 5 stars Abundant useful information on sightseeing, transportation, lodge/eating, and entertainment Sept. 25 2012
By GreenbeltMD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Similar to other Rick Steves' books, this book contains abundant information on sightseeing, transportation, lodge/eating, and entertainment. I booked one of the recommended hotels in the old town and, sure enough, received the discount as stated in the book. The information about musical hall is very helpful as there are so many performances and you have to choose one of the best. Notice that there may be different halls in one musical center. Make sure to buy tickets for the two recommended halls if you can. The recommended walking tours and the tram #22 route capture the very best of the scenery sites. The information on airport to old town transportation is very accurate and useful. You don't have to use airport taxi if your hotel is in/near the old town, just follow the shuttle or bus instructions and you'll get to your hotel not too much slower than using a taxi.
