I love this guide. Nice quality, great extra map (very sturdy), lots of informations in it, but not confusing. I love it when you get tips& hints on what to do in a compact way. Pictures, maps and lots of infos....if you need a book guide...take this one. Great! We bought two of those, one for Toronto and one for Montreal....This will be the first one I will look for if I need another Tour/Travelguide book again.

As a whole, I would say this book was O.K. Can not say great as there were several errors, which in turn caused us wasted time. Wasted time is the enemy when touring in a limited time frame. We still enjoyed Montreal very much using this book as a basic guide.

I find Frommer's Day-By-Day guides to be a bit hit or miss. Their central gimmick - presenting different itineraries for you to choose from for a short trip - can be alternatively helpful or maddening, depending on how they're set up. However, I'm happy to report that the Montreal guide was easy to use, well written, and a very good friend to have for my day and a half in the city.

The first thing to say about a city guide is whether or not it helps you get around the city. No matter how good the information it possesses, a guide that does not, well, guide you is sure to frustrate. In this crucial regard, Frommer's DBD Montreal is a success. It has a large city map in the back, a metro map in the front, and a lot of smaller maps scattered throughout to accompany the various itineraries. Thanks to the guide, I always knew where I was and where I was going, and that's high praise.

The other standard by which a guide should be judged is, of course, how good its information is and how well the information is presented. As I mentioned above, sometimes these DBD guides can be poor in this capacity, but this one was not at all. I easily cobbled together my 1.5 day itinerary from their "Best in 1 Day" and "Best in 2 Day" tours, through in a few others scattered throughout, and had a whale of a time. The material is clearly outlined and the writing brisk and helpful. I have no complaints about the guide at all, other than the fact that it will soon be a bit dated without an updating (published 2010).

I love guidebooks and I like writing critical reviews of them because so many people just write "Great Guide! Five Stars!" and leave it at that. Basically, if I had anything negative to say about this book, I would. But it really helped me maximize my time in Montreal, and it will no doubt help you too.
