This book was always with me when I toured around the city. With its included map it's a complete and compact overview on the most interesting sights in BA.
The different chapters on the different parts of town make navigation and planning easier although some of the sections (e.g. shopping) are not quite as organized as the general layout of the book... it's jumping back on forth between the different parts of town instead of sticking to one area.
I also liked the pictures accompanied to the suggested routes so you kinda knew what to expect.
Absolutely worth the money.

This guide covers the essence of Buenos Aires. If you've done some preliminary reading and only need a reminder of what you've read, this is a good book to slip into your carry on. Informative and well-illustrated. Very good value for the money.

This book is very helpful but I know that hotel and restaurant recommendations will change, probably from year to year.

HASH(0x9c73dbc4) out of 5 stars A comprehensive little guide July 16 2010
By Rebecca K. Jarres - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic small guide that does not take up to much space on the go. I loved the pull-out map. We spent a week in Buenos Aires and tried a lot of the "top 10" suggestions - they were great and not necessarily tourist hot spots. A lot of restaurants, bars, cafe's and the Tangueria El Beso seemed very authentic and we felt surrounded by locals rather than tourists. I was skeptical, because I am not a huge fan of top 10 lists, but this guide is extremely well done. I highly recommend it. It was published in 2009 and the information seemed current except for restaurant "Resto" on Montevideo, which even our taxi driver could not find. Everything else was easy to find thanks to the great maps provided.

HASH(0x9c714c00) out of 5 stars Great Little Pocket Guide on Buenos Aires Jan. 2 2010
By Bill A. Belt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great little pocket book that one can take on trips in and around Burnos Aires. It is well written, contains a ton of information, easy to carry and very nice pictures. We could not have done without this guide when we recently visited Buenos Aires.Several city street maps make getting around town and locating attractions easy.

HASH(0x9d0e7db0) out of 5 stars Excellent resource for traveling Feb. 13 2010
By L.Blackwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
You can depend on Eyewitness Travel Guide books to give you the information you need when traveling in distant lands.
The book is compact yet through. We bought the Buesnos Aires and Rio de Janiero versions for a recent trip and were thankful we did.

HASH(0x9c79e534) out of 5 stars Love this book but avoid the Kindle version Dec 29 2011
By Nick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've been a big fan of the DK Eyewitness Top 10 series for years. They're a great series of books that fit into a cargo pants pocket, are bright and colorful and provide excellent maps and lists to help you maximize your time in any given location. I have both the paperback version and bought the Kindle version on a whim to see if this might be the wave of the future.

Sadly, it's not quite there yet.

The same information is there - the very same helpful information that I rely on, but it lacks the well-formatted version that I'm used to in the book. The maps are the same, but I didn't like tapping back and forth.

It's not to say that this book is bad - it just lacks the appeal of the paperback copy of the Top 10 BA guide. The few dollar price difference makes it a no-brainer to stick with the tried and true version of the DK Top 10 paperbacks.

HASH(0x9c6dd6a8) out of 5 stars Perfect Book For my Trip! Oct. 5 2011
By Lisa M. Pignotti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I was in BA, this book was the most helpful! Too bad Rick Steves only writes about Europe, but if you go to a country that Rick Steves does not write about, get this book! So glad I bought it!!!

Happy Travels!
