Reviews - What do customers think about Berlitz Pocket Guide Iceland (Berlitz Pocket Guides)?
Not worth the money..... Apr 10, 2004
We are enjoying a wondeful week in Iceland and bought the book as useful pocket guice. Not worth the money. Any of the free guides available at the airport or hotels have more accurate info. For example, the guide on p106 mentions an angelica schnapps, Hvannarotar which is not available at any restaurant or liquor shop in the city of Reykjavik.
A much better buy to learn about the country is "Waking Up in Iceland" that weaves < marvelous tale around the music industry while giving tourism advice, history and a good read.
In the future, I will stick with Frommers, Lonely Planet or other better guides.
