This review is from: Moon Alberta (Moon Handbooks) (Paperback)
We used this guide for Calgary, Banff and Jasper National Parks. Very well laid out, easy to use guide (prefer these to the lonely planet guides). It's informative without going into too much detail. The main places and activities it points you to are the best ones available.
It has a variety of useful maps for each place and useful details to know about the area. It has sections on history, the main sights to see, Hiking, other activities, nightlife, festivals/events, shopping, accommodation, food, getting there/around. Each section was very useful and up to date. It includes great details about sights and activities and provides an opinion without being pushy.
We used it a lot while we were away, it's not too heavy to carry around though maybe a little bulky. Overall it's a fantastic aide to any trip and I highly reccommend it.
