    This book helped us tremendously to have a great time in Lisbon!

    Rick Steves sometimes seems a bit quirky when I watch him on the travel channel, but this book definitely made me a believer. We followed his advice on a guided walking tour, restaurants, transportation options, "don't miss" museum, etc. and they were all spot on. On our various excursions, we encountered others with Rick's book and they were having a great time also. I'll certainly look for more Rick Steves' books for future travel adventures.
