Reviews - What do customers think about The Edinburgh Visitor Guide?

Nice overview  Jul 15, 2007
This is a pretty good book - very visually appealing, has some gorgeous pics. It summarizes most of the major tourist attractions and does give some very useful info, but is in no way comprehensive. If you're needing restaurant or accommodation info, this isn't what you're looking for.
Excellent book!  May 19, 2007
This book is great! It talks about all the attractions in Edinburgh, and has some nice pictures! I'm going to Edinburgh in 4 months, and I will be taking this book along with me. There seems to few books on Edinburgh only, and this is a great resource!
Medieval contrasting with Modern  May 31, 2006
"Edinburgh Castle, the capital's most famous landmark, contains a wealth of interest. It houses the Stone of Destiny, the Scottish Crown Jewels (Honours of Scotland), Mons Meg, the One O'clock Gun and the National War Museum of Scotland." ~ pg. 27

The medieval Old Town contrasts with the Georgian New Town as historic and modern buildings stand side by side. The Edinburgh Castle stands above all the structures in all its splendor . The Edinburgh visitors guide is organized alphabetically and there are listings for many attractions including festivals, events, castles, historic houses, ancient monuments, museums, galleries, gardens, religious buildings and outdoor activities. All the entries include information on websites, opening times and admission.

Each entry is accompanied by symbols to indicate say, whether there is a tea room. When you see a coffee/tea cup there is a Tearoom/Café. Is there a picnic area for lunch or a restaurant nearby? These types of symbols are helpful to address many issues from whether there will be a nice view to "where can we park the car?"

The authors have made sure this book is visually entertaining as well as intellectually fulfilling. Full-color pictures from many angles and places make this book a tour all on its own. You can truly get a sense of a place you want to visit through viewing the photographs and by reading about all the attractions you may want to see.

~The Rebecca Review
A travel guide which blends tradition and innovation  Jul 9, 2004
Enhanced with 66 four-color photographs, maps, and indexes, The Edinburgh Visitor Guide is an impressive travel guide which blends tradition and innovation as it showcases Edinburgh's medieval Old Town confusion of stone and spires with her Georgian New Town's ordered symmetry. The side-by-side contrasts of magnificent historic buildings with striking modern structures offers the visitor novel array of architectural delights. Additionally, The Edinburgh Visitor Guide provides a wealth of city history ranging from Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, along with great museums, quaint shops, centuries-old pubs, and contemporary restaurants. If you are planning a trip that will include Edinburgh, Scotland, then be sure to take along your own personal copy of The Edinburgh Visitor Guide!
