4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for a short visit 30 May 2011
By nyonya
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently visited the Netherlands, and wanted to spend a day in Amsterdam. As this was my second visit to the city, I used the guide for making a rough plan, aiming for the slightly less well known sights. The book was perfect: it had just the right amount of detail and background. It is true that the map provided is a little small, but even so, it was adequate for my needs.

I would highly recommend this to anyone on a short visit to Amsterdam.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best guide ever! 13 Feb 2012

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love DK Witness Travel guides, and this is the first time I had a Top 10 edition - which was absolutely marvelous!
A lot of information, great clear maps, all condensed into a small lightweight pocket size book you can take away anywhere!
Since buying this one I bought 2 more of Top 10 city guides, and would recommend them to to anyone going to a new city!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the touristy side of Amsterdam. 15 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback
I bought this guide because I wanted to go and see the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh museum and the Anne Frank House, and obviously these are featured in the Top 10 museums section. The book gives you a lot of useful information on things like ticket prices and suggests buying tickets online for some things to save queueing time (which I did!). It also gives you background to each museum and a bit of information on the main exhibits, for example there is a page on Rembrandt's Night Watch in the Rijksmuseum section.
It also has top ten restaurants and things, but these were all quite expensive so I didn't use it much for that. One thing that was very useful was in giving information about various markets such as the days in which they operate and the kind of stuff they sell. I didn't use the map at all, it was ok but I had the Rough Guide one which is much better.
This is great for touristy stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Covers the basics, which is all you need! 23 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback
Top 10 Guides are a brief introduction to the country, region or city in question. The point of a holiday or a break is to immerse yourself in the area and the culture, and to be honest, the locals (be it the concierge or people in the street) will give you a great insight in where to visit. If you plan everything to the last detail from your living room, you can miss out on so much.

So yes, other guides are more thorough and if you are staying for an extended period of time, I can see their appeal, but for the last few years, I've only used the Top 10 guides.

For a business traveller with limited leisure time, these are essential reading. For everyone else, they cover off all the important stuff in a readily accessible format.

The content of the book was good, I have used the other books in the same series and found them helpful in getting around a foreign city. A paper book is easier to flick through and to find information when in the street. would not buy a guidebook in this format again.
