By Adam Rosenbaum on July 23, 2005
Format: Paperback
I have been travelling regularly to South America since 1994, and from 1996 to 1997 I lived in Lima, Peru. Of all the travel guides I've used over the years, this one beyond any doubt is the most comprehesive single volume of all countries in South America.

I have found the information to be highly reliable. Restaurants and hotels are categorized into the correct price categories, addresses and phone numbers are as up-to-date as can reasonably be expected, and other important information such as bus route numbers, time tables, museum and park hours, holidays, etc. are generally accurate.

The book also does a good job in its descriptions of the sections of cities as well as highlighting the most popular and the off-the-beaten path destinations within the various regions of each country. The maps provided are also very nicely displayed.

If you are planning a trip to South America, particularly if you plan to visit more than one country, use this guide to organize your itinerary, and then bring it with you to make your trip more enjoyable.

We spent 2 and half months in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Peru. You begin to trust it as you go along and towards the end of our trip we swore by it and started helping other travellers with suggestions from the book.You don't have to think twice when a place is recommended.

The best part of the book is the way is structured. Once you get a feel for it you will love it.

You might need a detailed guide for larger cities like Buenos Aires and Rio.

Hope this helps.
