Frommer's Buenos Aires March 26 2006
By L. Matl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I actually liked this guide book best of all of them. We also purchased Lonely Planet and I thought it was awful! This one was the most complete and the most accurate. We found it extremely helpful. Also, the restaurant suggestions were right on! This is the guidebook to have!

Buenos Aires Helper March 16 2006
By Constant Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has a great deal of very helpful information on the sights to see. As the value of the Argentine peso has improved, the prices are somewhat higher but still excellent value. The least helpful part of the book was the dining section. We found a number of the restaurants were no longer there. However, for those that were still around, the reviews were very accurate.

A comprehensive guide to a beautiful city Feb. 12 2006
By Andrew Parodi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is really a beautifully put together book. A must for anyone about to visit the city of good airs. The book follows the standard format of a travel guide, pictures, maps, etc., but along the way Michael Luongo shares well written morsel-sized bits of Argentine and Buenos Aires history. What results is a more comprehensive guide than most, an up-to-date guide that gives a real sense of the city you are about to visit.

It's been over a decade since I visited Buenos Aires, and this book made me want to go back. As Mr. Luongo notes in his preface, now is the perfect time to visit Argentina because virtually everything is relatively inexpensive for the US traveler. Previous to the economic crash of 2001, Buenos Aires was a notoriously expensive city, comparable to New York City. When I visited Buenos Aires in 1993, the US dollar and the Argentine peso were equal and often exchangeable. Taxis, restaurants, etc., accepted dollars and pesos as though they were the same currency. Those days, apparently, are long gone.

Of course, the sections of the book I enjoyed most related to Evita. Michael Luongo provides a brief biography of Evita, and he reviews the "Museo Evita," or "Evita Museum," which is headquartered in Buenos Aires and headed by Evita's great niece. If there were one thing in Buenos Aires I would love to see, it is this museum! Some day, hopefully....

One of the Best Guide Books for Buenos Aires March 8 2007
By S. Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Frommer's Buenos Aires is one of the best guide books for Buenos Aires. The hotel and restaurant recommendations are pretty much on the mark. The walking tours are the best I've found for any guide book to Buenos Aires.

Very nice guide July 25 2006
By Igor Novgorodtsev - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very concise, but most recommendations are right on the mark and everything that really matters is well covered.

I wish it would devote a bit less material to hotel reviews and add better (bigger) maps...
