A Excellent Guide with clear diagrams and maps which were easy to use. Very useful information which covered everything you need to see in the city. I have always been a fan of the eye witness guides and this one was excellent, would recomend.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Budapest unveiled before arrival 17 Mar 2010

As always with this series one is firstly beguiled by all the pictures and layouts. Only when one has trudged around for a bit can one tell how good or how irritating this particular guide has become! (I have not got there yet). It is possible, of course, that all the museum times have been changed since publication but this is unlikely (it would be impossible to blame the publishers for this) . . . Otherwise it appears magnificently informative and the street maps are excellent.
