Fodor's v. Frommer's

Jump to last reply

I used to prefer Frommer?s to Fodor?s. The graphic design and layout are superior and the tone more casual. In planning details for an impending trip, however, I?ve discovered that Fodor?s is far better ? despite the poorer graphic quality and very cheap printing. Unlike Frommer?s, which simply lists sights, Fodor?s helpfully organizes them into walks. Also, Fodor?s has up-to-date information on opening times and costs whereas Frommer?s is full of errors.

Of course, neither is near as good as the Spiral guides, which are far and away the best to have in your hand when actually traveling.
