Good Guide Nov. 30 2012
By R. Bradley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I like Frommer's guides. However the hard copy is so much better than the electronic version. Like all electronic books, you can't click on a subject in the index and go directly to that page. Thus, you have to either bookmark pages or skim through the contents to get to a chap[ter you want.

Frommer's Vienna Sept. 11 2012
By Rafael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have always used the printed version of Frommer's travel guides. They are excellent. I can not say the same about the Kindle version. Last year I tried to use the Amsterdam guide and it was awful and this year I tried the Kindle version for Vienna and it was useless. Maps are unreadable, important information about places (restaurants, museums) is missing (what U will take there, what days of the week are closed, etc.)

Vienna April 2 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A typical quality Frommer guide. The only issue is the title is deceptive. There is very little description of the Danube area outsite Vienna.

When reading through the book, I felt like I could rely on it for my coming trip to Vienna which will start from 07/04/13 to 07/06/13. I cannot say how it really helps me until I get there!
