5.0 out of 5 stars COLUMBIA TRAVEL Sept. 3 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We are planning a trip to Colombia and purchased the Michelin Green Guide Columbia. It was exactly what we were looking for plus it arrived much sooner than was advertised. More than satisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Aug. 10 2012
By Cc979
You do not buy the Michelin Green Guide for its listings of hotels and restaurants, that's not what this book is about, you buy it for the in depth history and cultural facets which it brings to life. So, with this in mind, it is an excellent guide to Colombia.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well presented guidebook July 23 2011
By James R. Anstey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I selected this guidebook as a change from the weary Lonely Planet formula. I must say I am very happy with my choice and it served me well throughout my trip. Of particular help is its style throughout where different places are ranked on a scale of interest; I found these recommendations to be pretty much spot-on. (Although it does offer accommodation and restaurant suggestions, I did not use these much, prefering to use TripAdvisor and to talk to locals, respectively.) Overall, a very good guidebook- lightweight, well-presented, good photos, and presented in a readable style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding travel guide May 26 2011
By M. Hogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This guide is the best I've seen for any city and was used for my 10 days in Bogota with day trips to Girardot, Melgar, and Facatativa (May 2011).

Overall, the information presented on the city was accurate especially the recommended sights and walking tours (with maps) as well as tips on using taxis, buses, Transmilenio, and renting cell phones on the streets.

There could have been more detail on restaurants and hotels but what was provided is a good start for a first trip to Bogota and the surrounding area.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good info but not for backpackers Sept. 5 2012
By Skip Hunt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This guidebook had good general information in a compact format. Easy to find location information. However, I can't really recommend this to backpackers. It only had minimal info about budget rooms and had almost none of the essential information regarding travel infrastructure... ie. where the freakin' bus station is, etc.

Good general brochure of the country. Not for backpackers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough practical info Aug. 6 2012
By Ell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book does a decent job of presenting and recommending attractions, but the lack of practical info is a little appalling. The maps almost NEVER suffice, and don't even include the restaurants/accommodations in the book. Michelin only lists about one hotel per price point - what if you want to stay in a different part of the city? One of the best (worst?) examples of the need for practical info is in their section on Tayrona. They list it as one of the most important things to see in Colombia, but only give you like nine sentences about the whole park. And none of them tells you the most important information, namely the logistical info about where to stay, how much things cost, what to bring, etc. For example, we didn't know that everyone usually shows up around 2PM to claim hammocks and that if you get there much later you will not have a place to sleep. Instead, we only knew the names of the different beaches, and the fact that there is a nude beach somewhere (who cares?).

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty comprehensive and easy to carry June 22 2012
By Book Maven - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently went to Bogota for the first time, and this guide was great! I was on a very strict budget ($23.00 a day, not including lodging), and although this guide is not geared to the budget traveler, I was able to find tons of free and cheap things to do in the guide. It also provides a bit of the country's history. As I was only in Bogota (and a day trip to Zipaquira), I can only speak for the section on Bogota. One thing is that I wish there were more comprehensive maps. There was a very good map of downtown, and fortunately, I was staying there (in La Candelaria). However, once you leave downtown, there is only a general map of the city without streets.

The construction of the book is very durable. It's fairly slim (about 1/2" thick) and easily fits in a normal-sized purse. The cover is slick, thick, and resists bending.
