— Midwest Book Review via Amazon.com

...the strength of these guides lies in the colour photography and heavily detailed copy in the Top Attractions, Neighbourhoods, and History sections.

— Globe & Mail

"These are books to keep for reference or to give as presents... they're readable, informative and beautiful. I hope they eventually do one for each province and territory."

— Guardian Patriot

"Canadian-based Formac Publishing does a nice job of presenting the many faces of Toronto. All the most popular attractions are here. ...Local experts in their field discuss their area of expertise. There are also sections on day trips -- in addition to the ubiquitous Niagara Falls, the contributors recommend such lesser-known gems as the charming town of Elora -- and gay Toronto."

— Chicago Tribune
