5.0 out of 5 stars A rough guide
In my opinion Rough Guide is the best English language guide on the market. It gives a more balanced and realistic view point, with a great historical and cultural reference section, and is less prone to hyperbole than Lonely Planet. Having taught English in Peru for over six months and having used several guides I would I definitely recommend this for longer stays in the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very carefully researched
I carried both this Rough Guide and the Footprint guide with me on a recent trip to Peru. In comparison, I found that the Rough Guide contained lots of annoying small editorial errors, e.g. a map printed the wrong way up, and was also often factually a bit out of date. However, the descriptions of the sights are covered in much more detail, as is the background info to...

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful, 7 Feb 2011
This review is from: The Rough Guide to Peru (Paperback)

5.0 out of 5 stars Peru travel guide, 7 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Rough Guide to Peru (Paperback)
I bought this book as a gift for my sister as she is travelling to Peru soon. It seems to be a great book, very informative and attractive to look at, and not too big to fit in the luggage! She is very happy with it so far, but it remains to be seen how useful it is whilst she is over there...

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, well-written guide, 5 Oct 2010
This review is from: The Rough Guide to Peru (Paperback)
I was very happy with this guide: it contained all the necessary information for three weeks of backpacking (in June 2010) across Peru. All the practical details were very adequate; the prices were up-to-date; the info section on Peru was informative; the restaurants suggested were very good. We also had a Eyewitness guide with us, and while that one was more colourful, the Roughguide is much more comprehensive.
