Maybe this book won't meet every traveler's needs, but it meets mine.

I'm a big fan of the Eyewitness travel guides, and this book certainly won't come as a disappointment to those who are familiar with their books.

I am giving this book 5 stars because I think it does an excellent job covering the city of Amsterdam. The illustrations are fantastic, the tips are helpful, all of the major points of interest are covered (and then some) and it is up-to-date. I'm a big fan of the Eyewitness travel guides, and this book certainly won't come as a disappointment to those who are familiar with their books.

However, be warned that this book isn't much more than a subset of "Eyewitness Holland". If you already own their book on Holland, you don't need this because everything that's included in this book is in the Holland book. The pages may be mixed up a bit, but don't be fooled - I went through both books side-by-side and it's pretty much identical. Unless you plan on staying exclusively in Amsterdam (why?), I would suggest going with the 'Holland' book for a few bucks more. But whatever you do, don't buy both as I did!

This book offers worthwhile information to a range of different readers. The first pages, "Four great days," offer itineraries for art lovers, shopping fans, history buffs, or families with kids to please. I don't think anyone will stop there, but I imagine many readers starting with those day-trips and filling in the edges.

The rest of the book presents the city in lush photography, legible maps, and clearly organized descriptions. The part of the book (about two thirds) divides Amsterdam into seven geographical districts. For each, the reader gets a bit of history and general layout, followed by detailed descriptions of many attractions. The remainder of the book talks about out-of-town points of interest and general information about food, culture, and other helpful travel information.

I'm going to Amsterdam soon on business, and have just a little time to enjoy this amazing city. This guide has been very helpful in planning those scraps of free time. Maybe this book won't meet every traveler's needs, but it meets mine.

We are now using the Eyewitness Travel Guides exclusively. We no longer need info about hotels, restaurants, etc., as we log on to Fodor's Travel to get the latest inside info from the Talk site. What we are looking for in a travel guide is inspiration, history and a sense of the country/city we will be visiting--we get all of that from Eyewitness Travel. We are now finishing the plans for our spring trip to Europe. The Amsterdam guide provides just what we need--lovely pictures to inspire us; practical info for visiting the city; history of the city to bring it to life. All this makes this guide just perfect for us.

Great Book. I used it allot when I traveled to Amsterdam last April. It is informative, has plenty of pictures, City history and extra helpful tidbits useful to traveling. The only downside - the print is just a little too small for my older eyes. But I''m still glad I got it.

Great photos of the places you see in person but can't have access to take the picture. There is a series so you can have many cities and countries in your collection. I'm looking forward to trying the ebooks to see how they compare.

Nicely done and well presented, easy to read maps with major destinations clearly marked. Just a bit heavy to carry around, take notes instead.

By far the best guide out there to visit Amsterdam. I've been a fan of eye witness for several years now (used them a lot also) and never found something wrong. Being honest updates to information are not a big deal with european cities but they are always a nice to have.

Includes a nice map and easy to follow instructions to get to a lot of different options. I'm giving 4 stars because there's always room for improvement and I feel that the historical part can be improved a little.

Recommended for first time visitors and also for someone who wants to have a closer look into this impressive city.
