3.0 out of 5 stars Not as helpful as I would have liked June 16 2011

I ordered Frommer's Montreal and Quebec City 2011 guide prior to going to Montreal for a 2 week vacation.
I read some of the entries, I did not read the complete book. The information I found useful was how to get to the city from the airport by public transportation. Otherwise we have not gotten much use out of the guide. Our medium size hotel Le Nouvel is very nice, but it is not listed, so we had to ask for help in finding it. We ate once at one of the recommended restaurants: Eggspectations, and although it was good, it was not in any way special.
I was very disappointed with the pull out laminated map. It is small and very general. We replaced it quickly with the free official tourist Map of Montreal which is much more detailed. I wish I could find a better transportation map, the one that has metro and buses. Public transportation in Montreal is very good and with a 7 day Opus pass amazingly affordable. ($22/7 day unlimited rides on Metro and buses, there is a one time $6 charge for the Opus card)The free official guide to Montreal is a much more helpful publication.
There is a major music festival going on right now "Francofollies" it goes on for 10 days with numerous daily free performances on more than 4 stages, it was not listed in the guide.
Overall, we are having a great time in Montreal, it is a beautiful city and very tourist friendly. And I see now that I did not need the expensive guide at all.

Very Good. All one needs to plan a one-week vacation to Montreal. Strolls appear especially well thought out. Restaurants? Suggest supplementing this Book with on-line reference to Trip Advisor which is more comprehensive.

No tables of contents for kindle! Some thought about the platform in hotlinks to network resources, but the maps are poorly adapted to screens -and you have to leave the book to get decent but poorly named PDF. Unimpressive presentation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful but far from thorough Aug. 22 2011
By Joshua Cahan - Published on Amazon.com

We bought this for our vacation to Quebec City. It had good information about many of the basic sights, but we found that when we wanted to do anything beyond the most typical stuff the guide ceased to be helpful. This is a good basic guide but doesn't lead you to any of the great but lesser known or harder to find places that makes some guidebooks so great.

This book was a great help to us during our week long trip to Montreal. The restaurants recommended by the book were delicious--and the book was right about what places would be crowded at certain times. The family sightseeing reviews were accurate as well. The many maps in the book were also extremely helpful. This book really helped us plan and enjoy our trip!
