A beautiful book to read Jan 4, 2007
My wife and I retired in Venezuela 2 years ago. The Insight Guide is a very beautiful book, and fun to just read, like a paperback coffee table book. We found the Footprint guide often unorganized. When we really want information, we go to our Bradt Travel Guide.

The book is informative and takes a close look at the culture of the people. The pictures are great. The amount of pictures are well balanced with the reading.
Not a book for the budget traveller Jun 25, 2004
Yes, this book has some great pictures, but is not particularly helpful in terms of practical information. I was also disappointed with the layout of the book. The info regarding hotels, restaurants, etc. was not in the same section as the description of the town.
Very complete and accurate Oct 21, 2001
As a stranger who settled in Venezuela some months ago for labour, I chose this book in order to know more about my ¨new home country¨. I must confess it surprised me in how accurate each and every place of the country is described. Even the traditional little bullring four blocks from my flat is depicted with pretty detail and a touch of history. As I'm becoming more familiar with tourist places -particularly beaches and coasts- I found myself as if I were there already.
Insight Guides- Venezuela - 3rd Jun 11, 2000
As an American married to a Venezuelan and living in Venezuela I also whole heartedly recommend this book since it is extremely up to date. I have been using books of this sort to travel the world for some time now and take most of their information with a grain of salt. They may or may not be accurate. That's not the case with this one. You can just about count on things to be as described or very, very close. At this point in time, it's as close to perfect as guidebooks get.
