4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Guide
A very good comprehensive guide to a wonderful city. This guidebook is really good for exploring Amsterdam and contains very decent and up to date information. The pictures and photographs are very good and the maps easy to follow. The only slight drawback is the size. It's too big to fit into most pockets but if you have a bag with you then you can keep it in that. I'd...

Comprehensive but the layout is muddled, descriptions are simplistically written and the mass of visual information is often confusing. The best feature is the detachable map which could then be used with a better written guide.

This review is from: DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Amsterdam (Paperback)
We used this and others in the series on a family trip to Europe. The hardest thing about Amsterdam is working out how to buy and use the public transport - compared to other cities (Vienna, Prague, Berlin) the system here is over complex and officious. Beware - if you use a park and ride and go to collect tickets in and out of the centre take the whole family and queue with them - the clerk will only hand out tickets for people he can see! Wasted at least an hour in the wrong queues before worked out where to get the days pass for the trams - clue - its not inside the station! Once up and running the guide was invaluable.

I really like the photographs and the highlighted sights. However the book layout can be a bit confusing at first. You may need an ordinary map on your travels as well as this guide.

Amsterdam is a very visitor friendly city, and this guide made finding my way round easy. We did the Canal walks which helped bring the city to life.

This review is from: DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Amsterdam (Paperback)
There was a lot of useful detail in the guide. Museums were well described with useful information on which trams to catch. I would have given it 5 stars if there had been a little more information on bars and restaurants a little further out.
