Gut für den schnellen Einstieg. Am besten ergänzt man die Infos noch mit Hinweisen aus dem Internet (z.B. zum CityPass). Schön ist, dass die einzelnen Stadtteile dargestellt und Routen ("Neighborhood Walks") vorgeschlagen werden.Praktisch ist die heraustrennbare Karte - wie bei allen (?) Lonely Planet Guides.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not perfect, but very good 1. Juni 2014
Von dephal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I live about 100 miles from San Francisco. So while I'm not quite a local, I know the city better than most tourists. And in general, I found this book very useful. I like the organization--by neighborhood--and the sections of information about SF in the back. I found most of the recommendations very consistent with my own experiences. I think most visitors will find this book very useful.

I've heard that SF has more restaurants per capita than any other US city. I don't know if that's true, but there certainly are a lot. This book barely skims the sruface, but the places it does mention are excellent choices.

I think the day trip sections could probably be omitted. They don't really offer enough information to be all that useful.

And I did find a few factual errors. For instance, the mural in Caffe Trieste is not of a Sicilian town. In fact, it's ostensibly Trieste, which is in the far NE corner of Italy (but it has been asserted to me with some credibility that the mural actually depicts the nearby Croatian city of Rovinj). And nobody in SF ever, ever, ever refers to their city as Frisco.

Finally, judging by the number of shivering tourists I always see in the city during the summer, I think more prominent warnings about SF climate might be appropriate.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good starting point for trip planning 13. August 2014
Von S.E. Poza - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Since some of the reviews are for a digital version and some for the print version, I should clarify that I'm working with the print version.

I actually have very little experience with travel guides because I'm more of a "pick a district and explore it" type of person. I lived in Tokyo for 23 years and this style served me well. Upon returning to the U.S., I have found that this serves me far less well and that it is better to have some guidance. The main reason for this is that it is much harder to get around in the U.S. (lack of intricate public transit) and much more time consuming. It was one thing to hop a train to an area of Tokyo and wander around and find there was nothing really of special interest. It's quite another to drive 90 minutes to San Francisco, pay $12 or more for parking, and then walk around and find there is little of value. The time commitment is higher in terms of round trip travel and the expense higher. Also, since the population density in most U.S. areas is lower, the number of potential "attractions" in a given area is lower. Because I have had the experiences that I've had, my reaction to a guide like this are likely different than those with other experiences. This is why I mention this background before I talk about the guide.

After several trips to San Francisco on my own (using web resources after targeting an area), and finding that I miss spots of interest or simply choose poorly, I find myself grateful for a guide that offers an overview of many options as well as organizes areas and events in such a way as to focus my attention. In particular, I liked the way the guide talked about events by month, areas by type of interest in several different ways (LGBT, food, kids, etc.) as well as discussed geographic areas and what is available to see in them. I view this guide as a starting point for honing in on where to go in general. Once I'm there, I can explore more intricately if I have the time and energy, but at least I'm not choosing based on vague information and internet searches and finding that a small area with little more than one high-interest spot is most of what is on offer.

I'm certainly with all of the other reviewers who value little known less "touristy" areas and how it is good to find information on those. However, I think those aren't necessarily what most people are going to be looking for on a first trip or what most people in general want to spend limited vacation time on. I was always looking for those hidden jewels in Tokyo, but I've found that you need to locate those after you've explored the bigger, better known spaces, not at the very beginning. If you want those hidden jewels, this isn't likely going to make you happy, but if you want to plan a trip around your general interests, I think this is immensely helpful and small enough to take along with you in a bag or backpack.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Competent, but still below Eyewitness Travel & Baedeker Guides 29. August 2014
Von Reluctant Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
The world of travel guides is dominated by two giants: classic, illustrated in color, very detailed Baedeker (since 1839), and more exclusive, profusely illustrated in color, detailed Eyewitness Travel Guides. The new improved Lonely Planet is almost like Baedeker, but Baedeker is better published and handier, has clearer layout and better maps, and its plastic wallet cover holds the guide and map protected in all weather.

The content of approx. 69 pages of the book is shown by the Amazon.com's "LOOK INSIDE!" function. What cannot be seen is that the LP basic series including this ISBN 1742207340 San Francisco has covers laminated only outside, its text is detailed comparably to the Eyewitness, however not as profusely illustrated and mostly only in 4 colors: black, blue, red, and beige, except a few dozens of pages with photos in full color printed on low quality paper.

Though the LP Discover series is in full color, it is less detailed than this improved LP basic series, has fewer illustrations than, and is not as good as, Eyewitness, which is 1 inch longer and thus less handy, but has the excellent flexible vinyl bindings, greater number of details, superior layout, graphics, clarity, and - in general - the quality of being a souvenir\memento.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Difficult to navigate; Good content 3. Juni 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a huge lonely planet fan, I carry these things around all the time for holidays. The information in the book is good. However, I have difficultly navigating it in the Kindle form. I bought two kindle books at the same time. It's hard to get to certain places in the book and I find myself just looking for advice on the net for things. I don't think I'll be buying these kindle additions in the future. I'll stick with the paper. I hope that helps. (this is the same review I wrote for the Canada one). I would recommend this book in the book form.
Update: I stand corrected. On a Tablet it's better to navigate the book than on the computer. I'll still give it a 3 stars but if after my holiday I have found it easier to use, I'll upgrade my mark. 04/06/14

4.0 von 5 Sternen Could use more 'off the beaten path' sections 29. Mai 2014
Von Michael S. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Lonely Planet travel books usually have a few surprises and give some interesting travel destinations for people who want just a bit more out of their vacation. Of course, in the Lonely Planet San Francisco book, the usual tips are there about sights, food, nightlife, shopping, entertainment and other activities. Organized by color coded page markers, the book is easy to use and includes a large map as well as detailed small maps of specific areas. Information is concise, but complete and the colorful book is easy to carry around.

San Francisco can be divided into various neighborhoods. Most of those covered in the book are in the north half of the seven by seven mile peninsula. The ideas for this half are numerous, the details specific, and the top tips invaluable. However, there are other neighborhoods in SF that are totally ignored and some have interesting parks, viewpoints, restaurants and shops. Some of those, such as Twin Peaks or Dogpatch, could at least have been mentioned for those who want to experience the hills, views, and some other "real" neighborhoods of SF. There are also many piers, other than the traditional Pier 39, which could be explored, but are not mentioned in this book.

For the tourist who wants to see the traditional SF sites, this book does a great job, but for those who might want to see out of the way spots, there is little information. There is a section on day trips, which is good, but for those who just want to explore all of the peninsula, more could be added. Still there are so many things to see and places to go for the traveler who has limited time and this book does a great job on that.
