Reviews

'We were greatly impressed with the detail, accuracy and comprehensiveness of the guide and with the research that obviously went into it. May I congratulate you on the best guidebook that I have come across. Despite having lived in, and visited, the Lake District over 60 years where there is a surfeit of guidebooks, I have not met your equal.' (Comment from a user who told us that while working in Madeira in the 1950s he had explored the island relying on a pre-war map and his sense of direction; lately he had returned to the island for the first time in 46 years.) For other insights into the book, see the 86 (or perhaps more) reviews of the 11th edition on Amazon.
