Einleitungssatz
Put Steven Spielberg, Charles Darwin and Claude Monet in a room with six bottles of vodka and a party pack of recreational drugs and combined, they could not come close to the concept of New Zealand. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

5.0 von 5 Sternen Die Anschaffung lohnt sich 25. Februar 2006
Von Astrid TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
Sicher ist der Lonely Planet "der" Reiseführer, den man sich anschafft, wenn man fremde Lande erkunden will. Aber ich muss ehrlich sagen, dass ich bei meinem letzten Neuseelandurlaub mit ihm nicht wirklich zufrieden war.
Da nun der zweite Aufenthalt in Neuseeland ansteht, bin ich wieder auf die Suche nach guten Reiseführern gegangen und habe die Footprint-Reihe entdeckt.
Ausführliches Kartenmaterial ist hier selbstverständlich. Darüber hinaus ist er (meiner Meinung nach) wesentlich übersichtlicher, als der Lonely Planet. Da eine Neuseelandreise gut geplant sein will, lohnt sich die Anschaffung eines zweiten ausführlichen Reiseführers auf jeden Fall - und da kann ich nur empfehlen: Zugreifen!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Look elsewhere for guidance on New Zealand 20. März 2002
Von Paul Lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I purchased this guide as a break from the Lonely Planet guide I used the last time visiting New Zealand three years ago. With that guide, I encountered the same travelers again and again. This was my second trip--the first was two weeks touring by motorcycle, this second trip was for 6 weeks engaged in a variety of activities on both the North and South islands.
Unfortunately, while Mr. Donald provides a refreshing tone to the book, the inaccuracies and lack of critical information made the book useless to me. As my trip continued, I became increasingly annoyed by minor and major issues, and eventually stopped using the book by week 4.
A glaring example is a lack of useful information (and index reference) regarding Milford Sound itself. Perhaps it was just an editorial oversight with a section cut mistakenly, but this is one of the most desirable places to visit in New Zealand. There is a description of the road to Milford, but as I approached the area looking for lodging and activity information, I could find none and had to turn to the internet for useful information. As a popular, yet remote destination, it is critical to have information about boat trips, kayaking, flights, lodging, fuel, bookings and other transportation options. I can't see how this could have been omitted deliberately--but it's just not there (although it is pictured on the cover and not referenced in the photo).
A second example is the dearth of useful maps to help get orientation. The book mentions a lot of towns, but doesn't provide map guidance to show you where they are. The primary maps seem to be the ones that show 3-6 major cities at the head of each of the 15 sections that discuss potential destinations. There a few local maps, but not nearly enough as other guides. A travelers problem that resulted: The listed bus went close to Invercargill, but not through--couldn't find out how far Gore or Balfour are from Invercargill (pretty far).
There are several small instances of a lack of clarity which could be editorial overight, but for travelers, some small omissions could end up as larger problems. I.e., the transportation section for Whitianga discusses a 5 minute ferry crossing--in the graphic it says "passenger ferry" but in the text discusses it as an option for gaining access to the sights on the other side. Unfortunately, there are few transportation options once you get across without a vehicle--or you'll need to backtrack 40km in your car if you don't want to take a tour.
There are numerous minor editorial mistakes (mis-spellings, innacuracies, businesses and activities that no longer exist) which you expect with any guide book. These are easy to bypass initially, but after finding a pretty shallow look at the rest of the country, they leave you feeling more and more annoyed than patient.
Overall, one would do far better by joining the local auto club, where you can get a guide to lodging, maps, and guides to activities that are actually up to date (which I ended up doing). The Lonely Planet guide was the only other one I used, which as better, but still mediocre (3 stars) Originally, I purchased the book as a change. I got that--a fresh tone, but I also received too much empty space and won't look to Footprint again for now.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Perfect Travel Companion 22. Oktober 2002
Von Rebecca Robinson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I was amazed to read the current review surrounding the Footprint New Zealand Handbook and would like to rally to its support!
I am a journalist based in London and do a great deal of traveling in the South Pacific. I always carry a guidebook and until recently relied on Lonely Planet or Rough Guide. This time however, on a recent two-month trip around New Zealand, tired of these major players (which always seem to rely more on their brand name rather than quality) I decided to try Footprint and the work of sole author Darroch Donald.
I can say without a shadow of a doubt the book was a valuable companion and the best and most entertaining guidebook I have ever come across.
The style was so refreshing and at times most amusing which was a nice change from the usual stuffy historic ramblings and bland descriptions.
Over all, compared to other guides I have used and regarding New Zealand in particular, I felt it was very well researched, accurate and up to date. The fact that the same author (who obviously loves the place) wrote and researched the entire book was also a major asset.
Of course there are a few spelling errors and I did come across the odd company or restaurant no longer in existence, but that is to be expected of any travel guide.
I was also interested to read about the omission of Milford Sound. In the book I purchased Milford Sound was included in the text so I presume this was just an error in editing with the first print run.
So in summary don't hesitate-I thoroughly recommended the Footprint New Zealand Handbook and now travel as a true convert to the company. I see Donald also contributed to the first edition of Australia and if New Zealand is anything to go by that book will be equally as much fun.
