Not enough detail if you're there for more than a few days
on 5 March 2007
I liked: most of the pictures, the fact it's spiral bound and therefore stays open when you want it to, some of the walks, the attempt at prioritisation of things to do/see, the sections on "do X in Y days" and the fact that it covered the Rockies as well as BC.
I didn't like: the level of detail, which I found poor, the fact that the things to do/places to stay/places to eat sections were landscape while the rest of the book was portrait (and ran over 2 pages which made it confusing to read), the lack of info on routes and driving in Canada. I found my Rough Guide to Canada much more useful and more detailed on BC and the Rockies even though it covered the whole of the country.
Worth getting only if you think "Canada's OK, but not for the WHOLE weekend"...
