As ever, another fantastic Lonely Planet publication. My only qualm is that the pull-out map is for Vancouver rather than Toronto, the city which I visited, but there is so much information here, and so many recommendations of places to visit. I will definitely look forward to reading it again on future trips to Canada.

It was a nice guide book - I would have liked one central pull out map or visual aides. I did like the detail of pricing and both famous & lesser known places to visit.

Lonely Planet Guides are the best! I've used them for my own out-of-country travels and thought I'd see what they had to say about my own. The contributors did an excellent job! In fact, they gave a few recommendations that made me inwardly cringe: "Don't tell everyone! Think of the lines!"
I came away with fresh inspiration to explore my own backyard this year.

I did not find that this guide did Canada justice. Maybe due to the fact that I am from Canada and have been fortunate enough to have traveled across the entire country I was hoping for more. Mind you, I did not use this book as a traveler. An Australian friend of mine asked me to look at his copy and tell me whether it was worth while having on his cross-Canada road trip.

i only got this because i needed the section on montreal. although i understand the guide is about canada as a whole and not just montreal or quebec, but it let me down. i still recommend lonely planet guides.

It's new (as I write) and seems an improvement over the last Lonely Planet guide I purchased on Canada back in 1996. I'm not sure about the addition of colour to the product. When I have had a more comprehensive read of the guide I'll let you know how it stacks up. ...more

This is a great companion to take along on a vacation. It provides information on towns and cities right across Canada including popular restaurants, parks, museums, landmarks and hotels.

As usual with Lonely Planet, this guide gives you all the information you need if you want to travel around in Canada. Or if you trying to find the motivation to do so. (DO IT)

When have you read a travel guide?
I planed our summer trip with this one and have the feeling to know everything there is to know. We will see in summer if that is so.

I think I read an earlier version, but this book totally saved my tail when I ventured too far north a few summers ago.

I use this book all the time. Even if you live in Canada it's great when people come visit or if you find yourself in a new city. ...more

Lonely Planet Books are indispensable, I just wish they were better at referencing the map in the text, and the page ref from the map key.

OUR STORY
A beat-up old car, a few dollars in the pocket and a sense of adventure. In 1972 that’s all Tony and Maureen Wheeler needed for the trip of a lifetime – across Europe and Asia overland to Australia. It took several months, and at the end – broke but inspired – they sat at their kitchen table writing and stapling together their first travel guide, Across Asia on the Cheap. Within a week th
