I just came back from a trip to Canada where I toured Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City and Niagara Falls. Before I depart for this trip, I spent a lot of time in bookstore and my friend and I finally settle down with a Insight tour book and this one. We plan on using Insight for Montreal and Quebec, then the rest with DK. As it turns out, my Insight is completely useless. Despite good story telling, it is totally useless when it comes touring around the place, not to mention mistakes everywhere in the book, even in map they messed up a major road. In the end, we used only DK for the entire trip.

In the end, we relied heavily on this book, and find it a great resourse. The colorful pictures gives us an idea of what to expect, and have a feeling of how the city is really like. Also, the descriptions are fairly well-placed, we need not go through the whole book to look for a particular tour site (like the Discovery one). Essential information are listed clearly, and it even contains visiting tour plans.

I just hope that DK can have a book for Quebec province on its own. It is such a beautiful place, I think it deserves a book to itself.

By A Customer on June 28, 2004
Years ago, as a child, I traveled with my family to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. It was one of the best memories I have of my childhood. Flash forward to 30+ years later, I have since learned that my maternal grandfather was born and raised in Nova Scotia while doing my family tree; additionally, I have a distant cousin, whom I used to play with, now married and living in Nova Scotia. This summer I plan to visit Nova Scotia for the first time since my childhood. I bought this particular book over Fromer's and other similar travel book because this series of Eyewitness Travel Guides is THE BEST ever! It is very informative and up-to-date, something that other travel books lag on. Plus the stunningly beautiful photos in this book and detailed diagrams and maps of cultural and historical places really gives you a bird's eye view before you even get there! This book also provides information on the country of Canada as well as NS and PEI. I plan to use this book again and again for future travels to Canada. The best part of the book is the last section you should read first...the Survivor's Guide. It gives you practical information such as entry requirements, cash and currency, driving laws, emergency/medical information should you need it, and much more! DK Eyewitness writers constantly reviews and updates the information in this book! I highly recommend readers buy this book and pass it on to your family and friends! P.S. My NS cousin says this book is right on the money!

I bought this in anticipation of an escorted tour to Toronto, Niagara Falls, Montreal, Quebec City and Ottawa. This little book pointed out all the points we could possibly visit during the free time we would have. Now, it will be used again next year for a trip to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. We won't need anything else!

I have just recently received this book and went through it and of course liked it a lot. I was in Toronto,Montreal, Niagra Falls and it was so nice to go through those places through the book and also checking the other places where I had no chance to go. I like these Eyewitness travel guides how they are build , they give a nice overview on a country or city and of course the lovely photoes and drawings those help a lot.

This is my 32.nd book from this travel guide series and I was not disappointed by buying this one also.
