"Guidebooks" Personal experiences & helpfull hints Tip by Dabs

Favorite thing: I got the Frommer's Buenos Aires guide and I really enjoyed the guided walks they put together as they focused primarily on architecture and led you into buildings you probably wouldn't have otherwise discovered.

My husband was a little frustrated with the placement of sights on the maps but they do a good job with giving cross streets so you can just use the maps as a general guide. Some of the information on times and costs were incorrect but I suspect that's a problem with any of the guidebooks. The restaurant recommendations were pretty solid and I like their "Take a Break" boxes.

What I didn't like was that there wasn't even the briefest section on language, it would have been nice to have something to reference for food, days of the week and a few other small things.

    I do like the walks Frommers recommend. All (maybe most) available on their website (free)now for those not wishing to buy the full guide.
