I usually go for the Rough Guides series but unfortunately their Toronto title hadn't been updated since 2009. This served my purpose well. It didn't bother me that there were no pictures as it is the information I needed. It was thorough and a constant companion during my 6 night stay. It was always informative and reliable. I wouldn't have wanted to do the trip without it.

This guide contains chapters on hotels, restaurants, sightseeing, shopping, bars/clubs, excursions out of Toronto (including Niagara Falls). The chapters split Toronto into sections and makes it easier when out in a certain part of the city. The history of the city is also mentioned, and helps give a deeper understanding of the area. this book contains a section at the back with all the information you will need when you are out and about in Toronto (things like how tax is not included when buying things, but is only added on at the till. How much tipping is expected, and more useful information tourists will need not to look out of place). There are many maps in this book and the places mentioned are dotted on these maps, making them easy to find.

This book was good, but not as good as the other Frommer's books. 16 April 2013
By Sandra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have purchased a Frommer's book for just about every domestic trip I have taken and they have never disappointed me or pointed me in the wrong direction. I usually only have a day or two in each place, so I need to know what to do and where to go without wasting time. This book was helpful in that regard, but I did not think that it was as well written as the other books in this series. I also thought that the scale of the map was a bit off. Toronto is a much bigger city than I anticipated and things are farther apart than they seem to be on the map. On the plus side, the book offered side trips from Toronto which was helpful as we were driving to Niagra Falls from Toronto, but it failed to mention the best place to stop in between, the Peller Estates Winery, in Niagra-on-the-Lake in Ontario. It is a bit of a drive off of the highway and VERY expensive, but if you can swing it, you will not regret it.
It could have been better. 9 July 2013
By David T. Webb - Published on Amazon.com

I used this book on my recent trip to Toronto and frankly it wasn't the best.

I really don't like that there are no pictures, and the material is very dry. I want a guide that gets me excited about my new destination, and this book seemed pretty ambivalent.

Also, certain things that I did based on the guide were not the best.

The Harbourfront Centre was a pain to get to, and wasn't really worth the trip unless something was going on there.

Their Restaurant tips were fine, but I didn't like how things were divided up into itneraries. To me it made things look like you really shouldn't bother with AGO unless you had a three day trip yet it was a must see for me and much better than the ROM.

I wish Lonely Planet had updated their guide because I really regret buying this.

my summer vacation. Classic Frommer's. I know Toronto from many visits years ago, when I lived in Pittsburgh and it was a convenient long weekend trip, so I needed a new guidebook

Kindle edition hard to use 21 Oct. 2013
By Kenneth P. Fox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was the first time I used a Kindle edition of a Fromer's guide. The problem, as with all Kindle books, is changing pages and going from one place in the book to another. Theere are no page numbers. Also you carry a Frommer's with you all day and consult it constantly. With Kiindle you either have to use it on your phone, which is very unsatisfactory or carry a tablet with you whiich means you need a data plan for your tablet or else you need to go to every Starbucks in existence iin order to get wi-fi. Not fun.
We were also very disappointed in the restaurant coverage. We went to a really excellent Greek restaurant Penelope's which is not covered. Virtually no Chinese coveerage although Toronto has a thriving Chinatown. Then there is the movie theater problem. The Frommer's people seem to think that either their tourists never go to movies or that information on movies is easy to find. IIn fact, Toronto newspapers only publish movie shcedules on Fridays.
This book could have been a lot better.
