FOOTPRINT HANDBOOKS

Published in Britain and typically British, Footprint Handbooks are a tremendous source of information for serious, and experienced, travellers. Not known for hand-holding, the guides provide little guidance for first-time travellers. Instead, the books are no-nonsense, succinct and authoritative guides to history, cultural and the practicalities of travel. The flagship book, the South American Footprint Handbook has been published annually for 90 years and is considered the Bible for travellers to South America.

These guides are as complete as they get. They cover all the major sites in great detail yet also provide excellent coverage about what is just round the corner off the standard route. No town or village seems to be omitted. Satisfying a wide range of budgets and tending toward the higher end, these guides also provide decent coverage of hotels and restaurants.

Among the special features of Footprint Handbooks are:

  Highlights section so you know what not to miss.
  Practical information on how to get to each country and around, plus suggested itineraries to help you plan your trip, whether you are travelling for a week or a month.
  Well researched cultural and historical background sections available as an online resource.
  Tips for travelling with your kids.
  Each country and region has an overview map which includes 'Don't miss' destinations, local information on how to get around and detailed street maps where relevant.
  A full-color section and a color mini-atlas.
  Detailed listings on where to sleep, eat and relax are provided for every destination within each country, enabling you to have an even better travel experience.
