    I really like Lonely Planet books. They give a good combo of info on culture, accommodation, entertainment, food and landscape. I found this one middle of the road. It certainly did help me figure out how to spend my time or rather where to go in Portugal. It was mostly reliable.We got some great hotel recommendations Chiado 16 (most beautiful and largest hotel bathroom I have ever seen) and Sea Me--fantastic seafood restaurant with amazing sushi and small plates of seafood with interesting flavors! There were a few let downs regarding some restaurants/towns that just didn't measure up to the description in the book. However, I hated the e-version of this book. It didn't allow me to scan thru it or flip back and forth easily. Sometimes in print is better. Also, the latter parts of the book wouldn't download properly. As a result, I read through a lot of it insteat of just using it as a resource. The maps are also really difficult to read on the online version I had that wouldn't blow up larger. Bah! Annoying. My complaints are more to the format of the book than the content.

    Provided (overall) great information for the cities I visited (Lisbon, Porto, Lagos, and Sintra). Has some nice photos of places to see, a couple of which convinced me to see some things I wouldn't have otherwise (and I'm glad I did!) Minus a star because of some inaccuracies; granted they were relatively minor but given that this edition just came out a few months ago (March 2007), it's hard to overlook. Some of the maps could have been more comprehensive and tended to not display some alleys which got me lost a couple of times. And their "pick" for restaurants more often than not tended to be relatively expensive places...it'd be better if they had a "pick" in each category (budget, moderate, expensive). Having said that, the times I went to their "picks," the food was excellent.

    I think we purchased or checked out every available travel guide for our 3-week Portugal journey this summer. This was the best by far! A lot of variety in places to stay and eat, and the travel itineraries were well-crafted. I feel lucky that we relied on this so much because we ended up making great friends with a group of Italians who were likewise relying on their Italian Lonely Planet Portugal. We ran into them by accident on several occasions and always at wonderful places the book had guided us to...

    Het leuke van het lezen van een Lonely Planet is, naast voorpret voor je vakantie, dat je weer heel veel leert. Dingen waarvan je vindt dat je het eigenlijk had moeten weten. Maar toch wist je het niet! Ik had bijvoorbeeld geen idee dat Portugal een dictator heeft gehad, net als Spanje dus. En dat het kiesrecht voor vrouwen pas in 1975 (!!!) is ingeregeld is al helemaal absurd. Dus; weer wat wijzer geworden, en binnenkort op vakantie. :)

    they really know all the secret spots and their recommendations sound amazing. I love that they are not afraid to voice an opinion - even a negative one. this is my 7th time going to Portugal but now I am excited to discover it all over again.

    A good trip planner book. However, if you are planning to travel by car, you should look to Michelin in order to establish a coherent path, even within each region.

    I think this book was a teaser--Portugal was all and more, the beautiful landscapes, the wonderful wines, the natural resources, such as the cork oak, were amazing discoveries in person. The book is just a warm-up for the experience of being there.

    this helped supplement the description of places to see from the other one i got...if this would have been the only book i would have been most disappointed

    Very informative as usual with Lonely Planet guides, just not many pictures. But I love the maps.

    This is the first travel guide I (almost) read from cover to cover. Even the history part is a good read.
