All of the major travel guide series are good, but Eyewitness books are something else. They are so full of maps and wonderful pictures that after you read them, you really feel as though you have already been to the place in question. All of the books have a similar structure: the inside front cover has a map containing the various color-coded neighborhoods, the back inside cover has a map of the metro system, Introducing Budapest, Budapest Area by Area (with more color-coded maps and detailed info on the attraction in each area), Traveler's Needs (including Getting Around Budapest), and Survival Guide. Trust me, this is money well-spent!

QUICK INFORMATION:

The DK Eyewitness travel guide is firstly what it says it is - A Guide. It is there to help you with advice to resource you with useful information for your forth-coming travels. These travelling guides I found offer visitors a detailed guide for today.

This guide I would suggest are for the following - if you are combining a holiday with a spot of sightseeing, require a history element, maybe taking off and having your own little adventure, wish to par take in travelling in your own style by rented car, train or by bus this is the guide for you. Although this guidebook would work for backpackers travelling in just Budapest for it's history and information this does not work for people travelling off the beaten track. Backpackers may require a bit more in-depth information for example hostels are not listed.

Second quick checkpoint when purchasing an edition of this book, please check that you have the most recent and up to date version. A necessary factor of any travel guide is to require the latest information most editions of these books are usually updated yearly. Unfortunately the DK Edition for Budapest was last updated 2004 the next edition update will not be till 2007. After my own investigation I found that most all book editions on Budapest were only updated every three years. I also studied this book against two other books on Budapest, The Rough Guide and The Lonely Planet but still found this guide to be the more interesting and informative guide for Budapest alone. I feel I should also mention The Top 10 Budapest guide by DK Eyewitness travel guide was released in the UK February 2006 but this 2004 guide still gave you what you need to know already.

I have been using Eyewitness Travel Guides for 8 years now, and find them to be one of the best organized and most helpful travel guides available. Information is organized into logical categories, making any essential information one wants easy to find. Numerous color photographs are especially welcome. I find the walking routes that combine visual and verbal cues extremely helpful, easy to follow, and very much appreciated. Good preparation for a visit enhances one's enjoyment; this guide helps one prepare thoroughly.

I think this guide is wonderful to plan a trip and to know new places, because it has many photos, explains about costums,the life in the city, the culture, museums, palaces, places to stay and eat. There is city map very useful.

There are two things not so good, the guide is heavy to carry all the time ande the hotels indicated are more expensive than the hotels you can find in the Internet.

We just returned from Budapest (and Prague) and got real value from this book. The information on the sights was perfect for us. It helped prioritize our list of things to see, explained the layout of the city, and gave good background information. The book's emphasis on visual communication works better for me than the traditional purely narrative guidebook. The book also contains good street level maps for the central parts of the city.

The information on restaurants, however, was weak. It is out of date. I gather that the same is true of the hotel information but did not use it for that purpose. Rely on the web for up to date restaurant information.
