I use it For information about travelling in Portugal .

The descriptions of the accommodation and the cities in portugal are well written and concise.Also the writers give their opinions and explain why they feel that way and it is very helpful because it enables me decide if I would agree.The details of requirements of travel in Portugal are well explained .It is very comprehensive and detailed .
The size of the print is just a little too small.My eyesight isn't what it was, but it is not that bad.They are obviously trying to fit as much as they can in the book.
