As we plan our trip to Amsterdam and the Netherlands we wanted a book that would give us a guide to walking tours and ways to see the sights of the city. We have used the series before (Paris, LA) and found them helpful. It seems to be just what we wanted and is small enough to carry with us on our tours.

HASH(0xa96d5408) out of 5 stars Great little tool May 3 2010
By Larry M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ended up being stuck in Amsterdam for almost 2 weeks as a result of the volcano. This little book fit right into my pocket and went everywhere with me. I ended up going just about everywhere it recommended and then some. I also had another book, a little larger, that supplemented for trips outside of Amsterdam. There was no doubt that I had perfect coverage and in fact will be lending my books to some friends who will be heading over later and, hopefully will not get stuck in town.

HASH(0xa96d5654) out of 5 stars Very Handy Sept. 24 2009

The book is logical. The font is read-able. It fits in a jacket pocket or purse. It does not have a pushy viewpoint. The fold out map was clear.

HASH(0xa96d5618) out of 5 stars This was the one in my pocket April 4 2013
By Cathy C. S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
On a week's trip to Amsterdam after not having been there for years, I purchased both Rick Steves and Frommers Day by Day. I expected Rick to be the go-to guy as far as carrying the guide with me. Not So! Frommers has an excellent fold-out tram map in the front and a "detailed enough" city map handy in a back pocket. This was the one I carried and used the whole week while Rick sat in the hotel room and was referred to in the evenings. I used it not only to plan tram trips, but to assist other travellers trying to tram around town (they all wanted my book). My recommendation, spring for both, because Rick gives more detail and more reviews, while the Frommers maps were the best. With Trip Advisor on my phone and Frommers in my hand we saw massive amounts of Amsterdam quickly and efficiently. Okay, there was that one time when I thought North was South, but.....

With Frommer's it's hard to go wrong. Book is concise, accurate, and easy to use. Buy ahead of time and peruse. Definitely learn about day trips from the city and choose one or two. Great compact size.

HASH(0xa96d596c) out of 5 stars Frommer's Amsterdam Day by Day Sept. 1 2011
By Chris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just received the book and have not used it in Amsterdam yet but just reading through it I am impressed--the size will make it easy to carry at about 4 by 7 inches--the information concise and complete--the fold out map on the front cover is very convenient and the larger map in the back pocket has all the detail you could want--the maps in the individual sections of the book for things to see and do give a clear reference and again the corresponding descriptions provide sufficent detail--great too that it covers thing like emergencies from medical, dental, to the embassy addresses and phone numbers. Overall very impressed and I have to believe that it will make take a lot of the stress out of our visit.
