    The only travel guide dedicated to Lisbon and Porto alone, this book is well written and informative showing that the author, Louise Pole-Baker, has done her research well.As well as listing what to see in each of the cities of Porto and Lisbon, including suggestions for plenty of walks,drives and excursions, it provides the reader with succinct but useful background information on their history, culture and festivals. There is also a directory covering entertainment, accommodation, shopping, sport and leisure and even a section on occupying the children. The last two pages contain a few basic phrases but one would definitely need to invest in a larger dictionary rather than relying on this. The book is packed throughout with beautiful and often enticing photographs.Having sung the wonders of the book, I'm sorry to say that the same cannot be said for the mini CD-ROM which accompanies the book, and which was not written by the author listed above, but by "Laburnum Technologies PVT Ltd". This has not been as thoroughly researched or edited one of the websites included is actually about Lisbon in IOWA (USA)! That doesnt mean it is a terrible CD-ROM - but its a pity that the errors contained in it detract from what is otherwise a good publication.

    A friend of mine gave me this before I visited Lisbon recently, and I found it one of the most accessible and interesting guides I have read to date. It's more than a guide, and certainly not dull. There are walks to go on, things to see, with a bit of history along the way, places to go, eat, recommendations, etc. On the strength of this book, I decided to visit Porto too (the author careful avoids the patronising "Oporto"), and I was not disappointed. Porto is an amazing town, but not one I would have thought of visiting before, and if it hadn't been for this guide book, I would have certainly have missed out on its greatest attractions. I found the book carefully and wittily written, refreshingly honest and, above all, accurate and interesting. I'll look out for more guides by this authoress.

    There are not many up to date guides to Porto. I bought this one as I also hope to visit Lisbon in the future.However, it is definitely out of date. It did not give much information and although Porto is not really a tourist destination, it could be more informative and have better maps.
