Frommer’s books aren’t written by committee, or by travel writers who simply pop in briefly to a destination and then consider the job done. Frommer’s author Nicholas Gill has been covering Peru for over a decade and this book hits all the highlights, from iconic Machu Picchu to Lima's vibrant dining scene. He's checked out all of the country's best hotels and restaurants in person, and offers authoritative, candid reviews that will help you find the choices that suit your tastes and budget, whether you’re a backpacker or on a splashy honeymoon. Most importantly, he’s not shy about telling readers what to see, and what they can skip without regret.
The book includes a fold-out map, plus detailed maps throughout the guide, exact pricing, opening hours, and other important details that will make your trip smoother and less hectic. It features smartly conceived itineraries for travelers of varying types, along with savvy, sometimes sneaky, tips for saving money in ALL price ranges, whether you need to pinch pennies or are able to splash out a bit. This book has it all from budget to luxury and everything in between.
Writer and photographer Nicholas Gill is based in Lima, Peru and Brooklyn, New York. He travels extensively throughout Latin America and his work appears in publications such as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Bon Appétit, Draft, Saveur, New York Magazine, and Roads & Kingdoms.
