This is a review for the 4th edition of the Lonely Planet "Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan".

All-in-all, this is a positive review. To put it in perspective: I have not used the previous editions of this book, or any other travel guides for the region. I travelled all three countries in two weeks, actually using the route (Tbilisi, Baku, Seki, Yerevan, two monasteries, Tbilisi, Kazbegi) suggested by the book for such an endeavor, even if decided independently from the book.

The LP proved to be quite useful, in particular when it comes to the maps and information on transportation (departure sites and times). Of course, some timetables change, so if you tend to plan tightly, try to inquire ahead of time. The map material was generally sufficient, though sometimes slightly inaccurate, which may also be caused by the vicious construction activity particularly in Georgia. A separate map for the Kazbegi area would be helpful. It would be nice to have some information on hiking Debed Canyon in Armenia.
It is almost essential for information on some sights, as occassionally there is no or very sparse information in English at the actual sight. So if you want to read a little about the history of the place you are looking at, the LP provides some. At this point, I would like to make a suggestion for future editions, though: Some of the sights *do* have information in English, sometimes more elaborate than the LP. If the intention is to keep the book at a reasonable travel size, one could leave out information on the sites that do have their own and include some more info on the sights that don't have a lot for people not knowing the languages of the region. The way things are now, the history sections in the LP are quite brief.

We have just returned from a month-long trip through the three countries of the Caucasus and found, sadly, that they (to paraphrase the old Kingston Trio song) don't like each other very much. While Georgia is on good terms with both neighboring Armenia and Azerbaijan, the latter two seem to be on a collision course... reinterpreting history to suit their own current political ends. If you visit Armenia first and travel to occupied Karabagh, forget getting into Azerbaijan. You will even be hassled at the airports of both capitals if your passport contains a visa from the other country.

This whole bit of nastiness between the two even extends to guidebooks a traveler might be carrying upon entering one or the other. If authorities notice in Baku that you have an "Armenia Guidebook" they will confiscate it... and visa versa in Yerevan if you have an "Azerbaijan Guidebook." This, therefore, makes the Lonely Planet Guide that covers all three countries a good choice for a guidebook to be carrying through the region...if for a sad reason. While other guidebook might provide more detail on history and places to see, as usual, this Lonely Planet Guide manages to do a good job covering things in all three countries in one slim volume. Well done, again, Lonely Planet!

The book is more than adequate as a guide to the region, if not quite as thorough as it might be. But it covers three very different countries in a fairly remote part of the world, so that's to be expected. I found no other concise travel guides out there for the Caucasus. I tried to follow one of the walking tours described in the book, and that proved challenging, though eventually I was able to find the landmarks they mentioned. Again, overall it does the job more than adequately.

Ok folks, do you expect this book to cover 5,000 years of history in a single volume? Of course not, but what this wonderful book does in just a few pages, is create in the reader's heart, a desire to perhaps travel and explore just a little more than originally intended. I had my own ideas of what I wanted to see, but was not mindful of the little things I would encounter, e.g., the national voltage, the exchange rate, the best way to travel once you arrive and other helpful tips. Best of all, this book gave me the right words to google for more information. Purchase this book: You'll be glad you did!

This is my least favorite LP by far. I purchased the Kindle version and found it horrible to navigate. My issue was mostly with the layout of the information - instead of presenting the information as three separate countries, it was jumbled together. I had a hard time distinguishing which country the sight was located. Most of the sightseeing focused on Armenia and Georgia. I wish I could recommend a better English guide for Azerbaijan, but this one as lacking as it was, is perhaps unfortunately the best.

I used this book mainly for Georgia with a brief foray into Armenia. Overall it is a great book and lived up to the high Lonely Planet standards. The practical information about traveling, like the list of mini-bus fares and timetables to various locations, was extremely useful. There are thoughtful features like a food glossary and chart of khachapuri (cheese bread) varieties... which you will definitely need, since the food is a highlight of the region! The recommendations for restaurants and bars were mostly spot-on, occasionally a bit perplexing, and once or twice REALLY bad (ahem, Armenian jazz bar) but maybe I just don't share the exact taste of the authors. A few of the places we tried to go were no longer in existence, or seemed like they might have changed since the review a few years ago, so it seems like an update is due. However, I would still recommend this book and will use it again if I go back to this fascinating region!
