4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but not entirely up to date 25 July 2012
By Chezann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I made sure to order the 2012 version of this book before my recent vacation to Turks and Caicos. I found the book to be very useful, and referred to it frequently before and during the trip. However, I am not sure it is really up to date. For example, one night we chose a particular restaurant in Turtle Cove (Banana Boat restaurant) based on the book stating on Tuesday all entrees were 50% off. I happened to mention to a staff memeber at my hotel where we were going and he informed me that restaurant had been closed for 8 or 9 years. Another employee confirmed this fact. Oh well. Just proves you need to check everything out.

Overall the book was very worthwhile though and I am am glad I had it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its Flippin monochrome 22 Jun 2012
By M. Ingram - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
From the illustration you'd think it was the usual slick travel guide, but the only photo is the one on the cover. The text is completely black and white, no photos, 7 maps. I'll take it with me because its small (4 x 7&3/8 - 3/8" thick - it IS portable) and it seems to have good restaurant reviews. Also it seems to be the only up-to-date guide available devoted to these islands. I'm not sorry I bought it and I may upgrade my review after using it on site, but it isn't going to whet your appetite for going.

I'm back from Turks & Caicos and I'm giving this another star. Since you won't get much guidance or advice from the unfriendly people there (the only amiable ones we encountered there were Haitians), you'll need a guide, and this is current, accurate, and reasonably priced. I understand why there aren't pictures. Its not a scenic place away from the landscaped oceanfront. The "Hole In the Wall" is really worth visiting for a meal, but they don't offer any pickup and return service as the guide says.

The diving is great!

3.0 out of 5 stars It was pretty good - Trip Advisor was better 20 Aug 2012

This book was pretty good but Trip Advisor had better and more in depth info. Use both if you like using guide books!
4.0 out of 5 stars Good buy. Nothing exceptional. 8 Nov 2013

Good info. Not detailed enough but I suppose right for the size. Small size is nice for traveling. Easy index and reference. Worth the price.
