Giveaway! DK Canada: Eyewitness Travel Guides Canada


Winner: Congratulations to tinkarooroo@hotmail.com for winning this fantastic Eyewitness Guides 4 book set from DK Canada's Travel Boutique! It sounds like these books are going to be perfect for her and we're so happy - congrats again!!

Update: Giveaway is now closed - thank you everyone for commenting - I've loved reading all your responses.  The winner is being contacted now and will be announced when Canadian Address confirmed.

Did you know Canada.. I have been reading THE perfect book for me the last few days - Eyewitness Travel Guides Canada by DK Canada. Right now there is 20% off all Eyewitness Travel Guides in their Travel Boutique!

It is a beautiful introduction to Canada through it's history, events, National Parks, shopping locations, wildlife and more. The photos are just breathtaking which make you want to jump on a plane in a second to visit so many places in our beautiful country.

Not to be outdone by the photos, the information is spot on with up-to-date maps with all the right details.  It also gives you just what you want to know about events and locations with phone numbers, hours and a great short description so you can decide if it's right for you without having to do secondary research by phone or internet.

The traveler's needs section on Where to Eat and Where to Stay is a fantastic colour coded section that's easy on the eyes while reading through great descriptions on locations that include pricing details, outside tables information for restaurants (how cool is that), noted exceptional wine list selection and more.

There's also a fantastic section at the back of the book called the Survival Guide that includes practical information for any traveller with details on time zones, border information, a conversion chart, phone directories, and banking information just to name a few sections.

I plan to take this book with us on every trip in our beautiful country - the information in this book can't be beat, with all the phone numbers you need, local information on museums, events and restaurants along with maps and local history - it would take you hours on the phone or internet to gather all this information for even one location.

According to DK Canada's website: Launched in 1993, Eyewitness Travel Guide continue to be a mainstay of the DK Publishing list with over 15 million copies sold worldwide.

Visit DK Canada's Travel Boutique to view more information about the Eyewitness Travel Guides Canada and find out more about the entire Eyewitness Travel Guides Series with 150+ titles.

  5. I would love to go to Montreal for pleasure (been there on a business trip - in and out in a single day). Considering it's just an 8-hour drive from me, there's really no excuse for me to have never spent quality time there before!!

  20. Having grown up in Calgary and vacationed all over Western Canada, I can certainly vouch for the diversity and beauty of this country! But I haven't been too many places out east... So I would love to visit Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, and the Maritime Provinces. Please accept this as my entry. Thank you!
