Reviews - What do customers think about Ecuador & Galapagos, 6th (Footprint - Travel Guides)?

Perfect for our 7 weeks in Ecuador  Aug 3, 2008
I had a difficult time deciding between Footprint's guidebook and Lonely Planet's because we've used both brands in the past. Ultimately, I chose Footprint for our 7-week Ecuador trip becasue it was published more recently; I am completely satisfied. This guidebook was accurate in its descriptions and prices. EVERY place we visited lived up to its reputation from the book. Although most tourists usually only visit Quito, Otavalo, and the Galapagos, the book had plenty of detailed information on many other magical places across Ecuador. The only changes we noted were that train service to Cotopaxi was discontinued and the Devil's Nose train ride no longer allowed riders on top. With assistance from Footprint, we were enchanted by Ecuador and will certainly bring Footprint the next place we explore.
Super inclusive, for all budgets  Jul 14, 2008
Footprint guides are, bless them, practicaly encyclopedic. Some people find the wealth of detail overwhelming, but the advantage is that one can pinch pennies on one part of the trip and splurge on a worthwhile luxury at another time, without having to consult different guides. Also, they include more places, letting you know whether there's something of interest in a place (or not), rather than leaving a place out and leaving you to wonder. They include tour organizer information too, should you want to leave some or all of your planning to someone else.

Granted, there is some shortand involved to get all that information in. The print can be small, the pages, thin. But, for example, if I see something marked as "recommended" in Footprint, I consider it a solid gold endorsement, because it's not given out often and reflects the comments of thousands of readers.

"Footprint Ecuador" shares these qualities. Ecuador is a tiny country just bursting with wildlife, architecture, and people worth spending time with, and Footprint's details on things like how long a bus trip will take and how much it will cost allow one to plan confidently how to spend one's limited time there. And once in a while there is a wry, dry comment that will make you laugh.

I visited a jungle lodge 3 1/2 hours by canoe from the nearest town, hiked on a volcano, visited native markets, lazed on a beach, explored colonial cities, saw blue footed boobies (without going to Galapagos, which was outside my budget), and talked, talked, talked with Ecuadorans.
This book helped me everywhere and has given me a hundred reasons to want to go back and explore some more.
