More importantly, though, I found that the practical information and advice on where to go, what to see, how to get there, and how to deal with the sometimes tough travel conditions was really outstanding. Crucially, it's very up to date compared to its main rivals -- most of the phone numbers I tried were correct, which simply wasn't the case in other guidebooks.
If you go to Bolivia, you'll find most travellers go with the long-established Lonely Planet Guide to the country. I started out the same way, but found it meant I was always travelling in a crowd round a limited number of destinations, almost as if we had been railroaded!
This changed when another traveller gave me a copy of this book. I found it really expanded my horizons and made for far more imaginative and adventurous trip.
It manages to give excellent travel information without portraying Bolivia as a theme park that exists simply for the enjoyment of tourists. I recommend it to anyone looking to get to know the real Bolivia, and not just tramp around the same old Gringo trail.
For instance not much information is available should you want to visit the Uyuni Salar or venture further south west IN YOUR OWN 4x4, much more detail is needed for this.
Saying that if you are more than happy to do all trips with tour guides and travel agencies, you cant ask for a better travel guide.
Enjoy your trip xx
