This DK guide to San Francisco is a colourful and information packed way to find your way around this intriguing city and some of the more popular Northern Californian sights.

As you may expect, this focuses more on the city itself, rather than the additional Californian sights and this has information on the history of San Francisco, the various areas that make up the city (with specific sights and attractions), guided walks around various areas, a couple of pages each on Carmel, Mendocino, Napa, Lake Tahoe and Yosemite. This finishes up with the obligatory travel guide section on safety, transport, maps and other practical information. This also has sections focusing of specific aspects of the city, like a double page spread on the cable cars, or more in-depth information on Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Like other DK books this has plenty of stunning images and `cut away' illustrations to show you exactly what to do and see around the city. This is printed on good quality paper as well, which makes it a clear and enjoyable read. This guide is for those who prefer a more visual way of learning about a city and whilst the information on offer is very good, at times I found the jumbled page design rather annoying to work out and difficult to find information quickly. I think overall I prefer the Lonely Planet guide, which has similar information in more a coherent but, it has to be said, much less attractive format.

This is perfect for those doing a fly-drive tour of San Francisco and the surrounding areas and should ensure you reach your destination fully prepared and ready to enjoy everything this city has to offer. The general maps are excellent and the maps of guided walks through specific areas are a nice touch too.

This Eyewitness guide is well up to the standard of the series in general, with colour photos, maps and illustrations filling every page.

It's more like a combined guidebook, history and architecture guide since it includes so much detail. I particularly liked the descriptions of the Victorian houses which crowd San Francisco's streets.

It also seems to be thoroughly updated every year, as I didn't spot any mistakes whilst using it during my visit. Overall, a very good value companion to this huge city.

Comprehensive guide to San Francisco, more limited for Northern California. Have used these guides before and this one will be going with us when we make our trip.

Good size to fit in your pocket, suitcase, bag. Full of information, pictures and tips. Hopefully will be useful once we get to San Francisco and truly test it out. Other DK Eyewitness books we've had have been great. Looking forward to testing this one!
