5.0 out of 5 stars By far the best guide to Tunisia 13 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I took a number of guides for my month long trip around Tunisia but found the Footprint guide to be by far the best and most informative guide. The author of this guide has clearly spent a long time in Tunisia and his obvious affection and indepth knowledge of the country makes interesting and entertaining reading. For my next trip to Morocco, I'll definitely just take the Footprint Guide and not bother with the rest.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit like the curates egg... 20 Jun 2012
By ESW
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've used Footprint guides in the past and have liked them as they cover areas ignored or skimmed over by Lonely Planet and Rough Guide. I have very mixed views about this one. Parts were excellent but other areas superficial. Maps let it down. Town plans are not as clear as those in Rough Guide or Lonely Planet, although some of the small detailed maps of parts of the Roman remains are good. I bought a cheap second hand copy and am glad I didn't pay full price for this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Footprint Tunisia 20 Jun 2000
By Thomas H. Amos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Footprint Tunisia is without question the best travel book I've ever used. It's information was accurate to the letter in every case. Background history of the country and it's ancient colonizers was exhaustive compared to the standards of most guide books. Perhaps most impressive is the pertinence of the information to every type of traveller, budget to luxe. The clever and pointed opinions were always on target. The writer did not hesitate to give sly negative reviews where applicable. "Lonely Planet" and "Let's Go" both offer good information but have target readers and leave out the needs of many of us as well as frequently providing only rudimentary information. With Footprint you can throw out all the other guidebooks or just avoid buying them entirely, that's how exhaustive I found the Tunisia entries to be. I've used many guide books, Eyewitness, Access (awesome in the original versions, especially for walking tours and architectural sites,food and shops)and Fodor's but these all pale in comparison to Footprint. Where have they been hiding? I've yet to see them on the shelves of those big bookstores in my neighborhood. Bravo to Amazon for carrying them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Footprint Tunisia Handbook-Fantastic Book 18 Nov 2002
By Vaughn Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
You can't imagine how much detail and information there is in this book. It must have taken this gentleman several lifetimes to actually visit all of the places about which he so accurately describes. This is far better than the Lonely Planet book on Tunisia in my opinion, especially for people who hope to travel to this progressive nation that is very "American friendly" and quite a bargain in most ways.
