Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We've always used DK Guides when we travel, but this time it left us disappointed. More than half the guide was Paris, which we weren't going to, but gave less coverage to the regions. Maybe a separate book.
I was very disappointed in the limited travel planning info I could garner from this book. It was so superficial with many pretty photos but so very little useable specifics. Such a waste as I will now have to buy a competitor’s book so I can properly acquaint myself with the country.
As usual, DK travel guides (and all their other products) are great for travellers visiting a place for the first time. In addition to well documented and relevant articles,I love the pictures, graphics and 3D illustration.
3.0 out of 5 starsLots of information, difficult to follow

I tend to have a bit of a love-hate relationship with DK travel guides and this one perhaps illustrates the problem more than most. First and foremost there's lots of content here to help you plan anything from a week to a year in France. The photos are inspiring and from what I can see all attractions detail opening times, addresses, website and transport links.
The problem for me is it's halfway between a narrow coffee table book and a book to travel with which is full of stuff you don't need. Given the shape of each page it doesn't need 3 columns of text, the maps are often really lacking.
On the positive side, the paper is good quality so will last without too much trouble. It's not semi-glossy like the family guide from the same publisher and series.
There's also random tips and top 10s.. I just find it irritating, sorry.
