For backpackers, cost-conscious families, first-time or seasoned travellers, these guides, updated annually, contain listings covering both cities and countryside, plus information on culture, history and people. Features include rail, city and regional maps, advice on work, study, hiking and biking, nightlife and even shopping tips. The researchers are all Harvard-Radcliffe students. They have to "make it on their own" - they have no expense accounts, no free hotel rooms and they travel on budgets as limited as do the people the books are aimed at.

Harvard Student Agencies, headquartered in Cambridge, MA, is the largest student-run company in the world. Every summer since 1960, HSA has dispatched Harvard's sharpest, most tenacious students to Europe to get their candid takes and irreverent commentary on seeing the world.
Conquering the great continent of Europe is no easy task. Many have tried from Julius Caesar to Napoleon and all have failed. That’s why you’ve come to us. We’ve been criss-crossing the continent for 57 years, smelling out the sightliest sights and the homiest hostels, and now, dear reader, we will pass on all of our knowledge to you. Let’s get this show on the road with the travel coverage chapters the meat of any Let’s Go book.
We’ll start off with Austria, where you can embark on your own Alpine adventure, a la The Sound of Music. From there, we trek on over to feast on frites in Belgium, enjoy Adriatic views in Croatia, and take in the old-world magic of the Czech Republic. Get a little closer to The Little Mermaid and its author, Hans Christian Anderson, in Denmark. Trek to France to explore fine art and finer dining, and meet Beethoven and Berliners in Germany. We cross the Channel to get our fill of Beefeaters and double-decker buses in Britain, make a pit stop at the Parthenon in Greece, and head north to Hungary’s thermal baths before returning to the Emerald Isle to drink Guinness over Joyce. Get the lowdown on Italy’s artistic treasures. Learn how to navigate canals in the Netherlands. Become a viking (well, at least try to) in Norway. Give props to pierogies in Poland. We’ll show you where to find Portugal’s finest port and take a cruise on Slovenia’s Lake Bled. Then, complete your grand tour on the sun-drenched beaches of Spain and the Baltic coast of Sweden.
