4.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas for our trip to Amsterdam Feb. 16 2011
By Jocat
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little tool May 3 2010

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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This was the one in my pocket April 4 2013
By Cathy C. S. - Published on Amazon.com

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.

This guide while in Amsterdam was very useful. Great maps and great tips on all the nooks and crannies of a great city. I liked that it was small enough to carry around and had a pull of map that was useful.
