The information you need is in this book, but the layout of the information is not so user friendly. For instance, using the day by day itineraries, you are given the suggestions of what to see, but then referred back to the chapters to see the full details. I would have appreciated less page turning and searching, but did have good info. The attractions are given stars to indicate must see, which is helpful.
