Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I can't trust this book. I first used it for Drive 13 near Grenoble and loved it. Thoroughly enjoyed the places the book helped us discover. This year we followed the instructions for Drive 5, Haute-Normandie, and discovered numerous flaws that caused us delays and frustrating times where we drove in circles. The order of sites was incorrect, and it was absolutely impossible to follow the instructions to find the starting point for the walk in the Forêt d'Eu and we drove in circles for long enough that we no longer had time for the walk. I had looked forward to trying drives other years but don't want to drive in circles.
