Footprint's South American Handbook, the longest-running guidebook in the English language, celebrates its 80th anniversary this year. As the Minneapolis Star Tribune declared, it is "amazingly detailed, updated every year, and has good city maps. It has set the standard since 1924." The same could be said for Footprint's 80 other travel guides as well. Covering more than 120 of the world's most exciting destinations, Footprint guides offer everything discerning travelers need to get the most out of their trip.
