Format: Paperback
I have a large number of these travel guides. What I like about them is their format - each book gives an overview (rather than lots of detail). It provides a summary of what is on offer. Inside is not just the obvious i.e. the Top 10 sights to see. Also you get things like the Top 10 museums & galleries, Top 10 markets, Top 10 Arts & Crafts, Top 10 events etc. - even the Top 10 things to avoid. That makes them very useful, and a unique approach to travel guides. I use them to decide what to do, and then use another book (or a website) to give me more detail if I need that.

This book covers, for example:
 Golden Gate Bridge
 Cable Cars
 Fisherman's Wharf
 Alcatraz
 Chinatown
 Golden Gate Park
 Grace Cathedral
 San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
 Mission Dolores
 The Wine Country
 Top 10 Moments in History
 Top 10 Historic Sights
 Top 10 Museums
 Top 10 Art Galleries
 Top 10 Churches
 Top 10 Architectural Highlights
 Top 10 Scenic Drives
 Top 10 Restaurants
 Top 10 Cafes
 Top 10 Bars
 Top 10 Gay & Lesbian Venues
 Top 10 Nightlife
 Top 10 Outdoor Activities
 Top 10 Festivals & Parades
 Top 10 Beaches
 Top 10 Day Trips
(This is some, not all)

The book in its physical format is small - just small enough to fit inside a DL envelope (i.e. the standard white envelope, designed to accept a sheet of A4 paper folded twice). It is actually a few centimetres shorter than a DL envelope. This compact size makes it easy to fit into your pocket.

This book can't provide detail - it can provide `the big picture'.

This book was very helpful for us during our few days in San Francisco. The map could have been better, however, all hotels provide a comprehensive local street map so this did not matter. I would be careful about the recommended food and drink costing guide. We visited a restaurant stated as a $$ and it was most definitely a $$$$. The food was lovely so we couldn't complain.
For a small city guide it's fine.

Has loads of useful information but if you use your phone as much as I do, it is much better to have everything on it. The map here is not useful if you use your phone but a good addition if it happens to die!

The good thing about this little book is that is has a lot of interest information in one little book and you dont have to go around looking for things. The itineraries were not as great I thought and if you want to cram a lot of things in 2.5 days like I did the suggested plans are not very useful...

But you can definitely pick up some good ideas from it.

Worth having and the price is good too but would't spend more than that

The dk eyewitness travel books are very informative they have a fold up map on the back page a section of hotels and a short review and restaurants with a price guide if you are traveling I would highly recommend these dk eyewitness books. This san Francisco book is very useful and tells you all the top 10 sights to see and mini walking tours you can do

I have bought several DK books and they are really good . The map is helpful, the sights to visit , the use of public transport all very helpful. However the restaurants the books suggests have been very very disappointing. I have never so far a good meal by following the DK suggestion.
Has anybody really tried ay of the restaurants suggested in the books? I really wonder. I still recommend the books but not the resturants the books suggest.

Really good factual information in this guide. Clear and concise with good maps for reference. Plus the bonus of a pull out map to take in your pocket.

Just returned from stay in San Frabcisco and didn't find this book at all useful. Just lists that refer you to another page, hinting at more information, but then you just find another list! Several maps but all seemed to cover same area with similar scale.

Looking forward to putting this to good use next month - we've already booked our excursion to Alcatraz and can't wait to try out more of this Guide's recommendations. Handy size too.
