5.0 von 5 Sternen Guter Begleiter 15. Juli 2013
Von angi6284
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich kaufe mir immer den Lonely Planet. Dieser Reiseführer ist einfach am besten geeignet, wenn man mit dem Rucksack reist und sich die Unterkünfte und Fortbewegungsmittel selber organisieren muss.

Es wird auch jede noch so kleine Stadt kurz beschrieben, dann findet man einen Stadtplan vom Zentrum, danach Unterkünfte (kurz beschrieben, Preisinformation, W-lan usw), empfohlene Restaurants, Cafes, Touristeninformationen, Bus- und Bahnshöfe ...

Immer wieder gerne.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A Poor Guidebook for Visitors to Peru 5. Juli 2013
Von Laura - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I recently returned from a 16-day trip to Peru. Before I left, I was delighted to see that Lonely Planet had a new edition of their Peru guidebook, as I frequently use their guides for my travel. This one was strongly disappointing. Although there were some good tips, much of the information was inaccurate or misleading at best.

My trip involved travel to a rural area of the North Coast (not covered in the guidebook, which was completely expected and understandable; I was visiting my sister who volunteers there), Trujillo/Huanchaco, Lima, and Cusco/Sacred Valley. The overviews and basic information about each region were helpful. I enjoyed the self-guided tour of Lima's historical center, information about the Ollantaytambo ruins, and rough guidelines about taxi/transportation fares. Some of the most glaring inaccuracies and disappointments are as follows:

1) The book says tickets to Machu Picchu cannot be purchased online and must be done through a separate travel agency. Our entire travel group of nine people purchased tickets online before we left. The website is in Spanish, but it's easy to follow. As Machu Picchu is a must-see for many travelers, this erroneous information is highly surprising.
2) Buses to Machu Picchu from Aguas Calientes have nearly doubled from what was written in the guidebook. For a supposedly "updated" guidebook, I find it hard to believe that they weren't at least in a rough ballpark on this figure.
3) The Lima Cathedral is not free as mentioned in the guidebook (which says only the museum costs money). It costs 10 soles for entrance and has for a while, according to the worker I asked.
4) Numerous prices for entrance tickets, meals, etc. have changed drastically from what is listed in the guidebook. Some price fluctuation is understandable, but many of the prices were unbelievably different than listed.
5) The guidebook recommends procuring a guide for the Cusco Cathedral. However, a comprehensive audioguide is available for free with an entrance ticket. At least mentioning this would be helpful for budget travelers.
6) The Spanish phrasebook at the end is very skimpy. I would expand this section somewhat to include more relevant phrases for travelers. And I certainly recommend that non-Spanish speakers bring a separate Spanish-English phrase book or dictionary; this is not going to get you very far.
7) The restaurant recommendations were heavily skewed toward non-Peruvian cuisine in establishments run by expats. I understand that after traveling for a while, you might get a hankering for some Chinese food or Italian cuisine. However, the restaurant recommendations (sections for Cusco, Lima, and Huanchaco were especially guilty of this) had just a few Peruvian options scattered among American-style cafes, Chinese joints, and pizzerias. Perhaps this is my own personal prejudice, but I didn't travel to Peru for a "concoct-your-own-pizza" experience (Huanchaco) or "huevos rancheros to target the gringo palate" (Ollantaytambo). Tell me where to get some fantastic ceviche or the best aji de gallina. I found the Moon Peru (Moon Handbooks) book to be much more helpful with restaurant recommendations.
8) I found the accommodations recommendations to be almost completely unhelpful. Lonely Planet seems to have lost its roots as a budget-minded travel guide in this regard. I ended up using TripAdviser and HostelWorld reviews for all of my accommodations bookings.

I should also note that I do not envy anyone who writes guidebooks for South American countries, as prices, hours, and regulations change regularly. I understand how difficult it must be to keep this type of guidebook up-to-date. However, the gross inaccuracies for a supposedly "new" guidebook were unacceptable. From reviews I have read, past editions have been disappointing as well. Lonely Planet needs to start from scratch and completely rehaul this guide.

Overall, the Lonely Planet Peru guidebook is disappointing and full of inaccuracies. However, I didn't find any alternative guidebooks that completely met my needs. Combined with Moon Peru (Moon Handbooks), this was adequate for my trip. My brother and sister-in-law, who also traveled with us, had some success with The Rough Guide to Peru but also found it inaccurate in many ways. Unfortunately, you'll probably have to cobble together information from two or three books (plus other online sources) to get the information you need for a fantastic trip to Peru.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Very Disappointing 28. Oktober 2013
Von astaplet82 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Maybe we've been spoiled by traveling using Rick Steves so much in Europe, but we've tried other Lonely Planet books in the past and at least thought they were acceptable. This book was terrible. A few of the things that made me feel the need to review it (my first ever guidebook review, even though I have about 30 on the bookshelf):

1. Someone else mentioned this, but the restaurants are heavily skewed to international fare. Peru, and specifically Lima, is supposed to have the best cuisine in world, so why is LP suggesting so many pizza and Asian food places?
2. The number of hotels listed is outrageous. I don't remember the exact number, but I just remember there being a daunting task while we planned of trying to find a place to stay, especially in Lima. We had already decided on either Barranco or Miraflores, but had to go through and pare down the list to about 15 and then go check pricing and availability.
3. Others have said this but its worth repeating that the pricing in the book is way off base in some cases. I expect some differences, but in some cases the price of admission to sites was nearly double the price listed in the book.
4. We were trying to take a bus from Cusco to Puno, and the book focuses on the tourist buses ($60), whereas we wanted an overnight bus ($12). It mentioned a few companies, but we couldn't find any details about these companies online, and ended up having to wait until we arrived to book the seats, which was annoying.
5. There is really no way rating between sites. There might be 20 things listed in an area that you can see/do, but the book has no way of distinguishing between what is #1 and what is #20. For example in Cusco it says that Qorikancha is "the one site you must see in Cusco" but that description is buried about 6 pages into the Cusco section, well after other minor sites. This also popped up in central Lima where there were about 10 different churches listed.
6. We wanted to go to the Larco Museum in Lima, one of the top rated sites in the city and mentioned a couple of times in the book, including the section on what to do there in 2 days. The directions to the museum say to get on a bus in Miraflores "marked for Bolivar, and get off in the 1500 block of Bolivar street." What it doesn't say is that this is a 30 min or longer bus ride on a pretty scary public bus that takes about 17 turns and the only way you know you're on Bolivar is by watching the street signs. And you need to watch close to get off at the right spot. Needless to say we took a cab to get back from the museum. It is crazy that the book doesn't mention more about these logistics. Luckily I'd looked at a map and knew it was kinda far, but I could see someone thinking after 20 minutes and 10 turns and never seeing Bolivar that they were in the wrong place and just hopping off.
7. One of the highlights of Lima is supposed to be "walking around the gardens of Barranco." This was the only mention of gardens in Barranco that we found in the book - the Barranco section didn't say anything about gardens at all.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not on par with the Lonely Planet Standard we have come to know 18. Juni 2013
Von Saurabh Pradhan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Terrible ! just returned from Peru where I "tried" to use this book as a guide. Here are some low
lights : The book says Macchu Picchu and Huwyna Picchu tickets cannot be bought online ...wrong !!!
I bought both at the official website ( you may need a very basic knowledge of spanish )

Other low lights include .. non existent restaurants, shops, wrong timings, wrong phone numbers ... now some of these things could be forgiven had this not been the latest edition. We began our travel only 5 days after the book was released.

I am a lonely planet fan but this one is the worst I have seen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good travel companion for my trip to Peru 6. Juni 2013
Von Discerning consumer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I visited Lima and the Cusco area last month. This guide was up-to-date (just came out earlier this year) with a number of good restaurant recommendations and information on various attractions. Quite sufficient to meet my needs.

Separately, this was my first time buying a travel guide as an e-book. Although the maps were not as convenient to use as in the print version, I found it super convenient to be able to search for specific terms as well as to be able to browse on both my iPad and iPhone.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Worst Lonely Planet 21. Juli 2013
Von Joyce Chang - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have been a huge fan of the lonely planet, and have purchased about 20 books through the years.
This one stood out as being the worst.
I hate to generalize, but I think most people who go to Peru, head to Macchu Picchu.
The section for Macchu Picchu was too confusing.
I think the person who wrote this section did not research the area very well.
I found Aguas Caliente to be very charming and beautiful - right on the river , and the train goes right into the town. I'm so glad I did not listen to the author. We stayed in Aguas Caliente for 2 nights and was able to see Macchu Picchu early in the morning.
I hope this is not an example of how Lonely Planet plans on structuring it's future books.
