This guide is lacking too many things for me to perceive it useful. First, the pricing is not accurate. Even though it's claimed to be published this year, the prices for the hotels and restaurants were as much as 2 times off the values we encountered during the trip in June. Second, it has very little "cultural" component. The description of the cities is mostly devoted to the hotels and restaurants, which I find to be much easier to inquire about in the internet (plus, it's not very accurate, even forgetting about the weird prices, I mentioned earlier). Information on history and peculiarities of such the cities as Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto is presented on 2 pages and is quite boring and incomplete, compared to wikitravel, e.g.. Overall, even though it's written in a fine style and is pleasant in outlook, the book turned out to be completely useless during the travel and we couldn't avoid reading wikitravel + googling for hotels.

We used the Frommer's Guide (an older copy) on some past trips we had to Canada. We found the guide helpful. My mother planned a special mother-daughter trip, several years ago, for us to check out Toronto together. She had been there before but was excited to show me around. It wasn't a long drive from where she lived just north of Pittsburgh, PA at the time. It was actually a really beautiful time of year for the drive. The leaves were all changing colors and were very colorful. We made it to Toronto. She had read about the Pantages Theater in Toronto and discovered they were selling tickets for "Phantom of the Opera". Like I said, that was a while ago. We had a wonderful time there. The next day, since we had limited time, we didn't want to spend our whole day inside buildings so we decided to go on a very long walking tour of the city. My mother loves walking as much as I do so neither one of us tired the other out. We stopped along the way at a Gelato shop ---SO GOOD! The Frommer's Guide gave us plenty of recommendations for things to check out on our extended walking tour. It was wonderful to really be able to see so much of the city and the guide book gave good recommendations. We have also made many trips to Ontario area. This is a very short drive from PA. The Niagara Falls are beautiful and it's fun to check out the U.S. side and go over to Canada too. Our recommendation is to not go in the Winter because this area can get a crazy amount of snow (a cousin that lives in Buffalo gets feet of snow at a time, forget about inches) that might hinder what you can really be able to see easily in other seasons. My husband's family lives near Seattle so trips to Vancouver are easy from there. As most people are probably already aware, the area is perfect for whale watching.Read more ›

I have used Frommers in the past and been very pleased with the amount of information. This book is lacking in detail for the various regions/provinces. It could be that there is just not that much detail to be had but I was disappointed in the information I received.

I am impressed with the information and layout in this book. I bought a Rick Steves book for a recent trip to Norway and was disappointed he left out important basic information. So I really appreciate this book.

The book arrived in good condition, and comprehensive review of all Canadian cities and vacation areas. Since it covered total country was not as specific with restaurants and attractions as I might want.
