The best out there Aug 25, 2008
This book provides the best information for those traveling to South America. It's content is precise, updated, and unique. Further to this, the structure of the book is extremely useful for those that are not looking for the "standard", "packaged" vacation.
South America - Footprints May 15, 2008
In preparation for a trip to South America, I purchased a number of books on the different countries as well as South America in general. By far, the Footprints offered the best information, maps, and tips for successful navigation through the country. Unfortunately, this is such a thick guide that it will not make the trip with us, but it has helped lay the foundation for efficiently exploring all that South America has to offer.
The Vry Best for Cheap Travel Apr 24, 2008
I have traveled in South America four times with this book. It is fantastic for low-budgeters like me. I am a woman, 52. I travel alone. It gives all the info I needed about even small towns. It's by far the most extensive - and the price is so cheap!!
Good book - arrived fast Mar 21, 2008
Informative for helping me plan my trip to Peru and Chile. Better yet was that it arrived the day after ordering it. Thanks!
Secret import tax Feb 16, 2008
I ordered this product in Peru and paid maximum costs to have it delivered within one working week. A month later the product still hasn't arrived due to importtax of 175% of the price of the book that i have to pay in cash in the capital Lima (while i'm in Puno). this site claims it's not their problem even though they do not at all warn you when ordering the product and promise to have it delivered quickly. Let it be a warning: even though this site says they can deliver anywhere in the world, they cannnot!! It is impossible to order a book in another country without leaving your house and paying a lot extra. It was the last time i ever ordere anything with this site unless they make an explicit warning ( not some little line in the general conditions) when ordering to another country then the US.
