This book is very well organized. I have read it from cover to cover planning my trip. I also bought a similar book from Lonely Planet and the Frommers book is much better.

The key feature of Frommer's guides is their "what to do if" pages. While I was on a tour which took us to certain attractions, there was sufficient free time to explore others. Having someone to guide you to the most worthwhile attractions depending on how much time you have available is helpful when visiting for the first time. I took some of their suggestions, but also found others just as interesting. The guide book is targeted for the mainstream adult audience rather than youth or those on a frugal budget. The pages of need to know items as well as items such as where to find bookstores and other make it very handy. The pages concerning accommodations and restaurants are as current as can be.

I highly recommend it for its target audience

Nice concise descriptions and good details of places to see, visit, and things to do. Easy to follow format and the index was surprisingly good. Good tips for hiking in the Canadian Rockies. Nice small size made it easy to keep this resource in a backpack pocket.

Disappointed that it is a 2008 edition. I hope that the information is not too out of date for a planned trip this summer. It's list price was $12.99 and I paid $27 which is rather inflated I think.

We went on a 10 day trip to the Rockies & let me tell you, I was inseparable with this book. It covered everything from A-Z. Especially helpfull for choosing hikes, camp sites, and had tons of information on different places in the towns. I could always find an address, phone #, operation hours, etc.

When researching on which guide book was the best for me to take on this trip, I came across this one & another guide book (a more recent publication). But when I read the reviews about the other guide book, people were saying that it was mainly concentrating on hikes, and I knew that I wanted a little bit of everything. Plus when it comes to doing hikes, you can always find more detailed information on that at the parks' info centers.

The only con of this book is that it is an older publication, therefore expect prices to be higher!

But overall, I am very glad that I chose to take this guide book on our trip. It definitely gave me reassurance that we were getting the most out of our time spent there.

The book itself seemed fine enough but I didn't get why it cost $62.00 for a small paperback that in 2008 only cost $12.99.
There is no indication it is out of print or some incredibly valuable book to command that type of price.

My wife ordered this book in preparation of an upcoming vacation. We are using it as a travel guide for a fly by the seat of your pants trip.
No schedule, no groups, no time table.
