About NG Traveler

The award-winning National Geographic Traveler has been enhanced with engaging new features and a contemporary redesign. Each guide begins with an introduction that enables you to sample a bit of the culture, history, and attractions before you go and plan the trip based on your own interests and length of stay.

Immerse yourself in active, in-country "Experiences" and "Off-the-Beaten-Path Excursions" you won't find anywhere else.

Other new features, such as "Insider Tips" from National Geographic photographers, writers, and experts, and "Not-To-Be-Missed" lists ensure that each visit will be memorable.

The guides' design has been simplified, opened up, and enhanced with easy-to-read tinted sections. Gorgeous color photographs, high-quality maps, and the popular walking and driving tours are still highlights of our crisp, new look.

Comments about Peru:

Until I ordered my first NG travel guide, I was partial to the durable format and excellent color photos of some other travel books. Then I received my National Geographic Traveler guide on Peru. I was overjoyed when it arrived at not only the features superior to the other guides, but the outstanding and reliable information that I have always relied upon from National Geographic. I have systematically ordered and read all the travel guides I could afford on Mexico, Central, and South America. Initially, the purpose was research for retirement in Latin America. That research developed a mind of its own, and I now have an insatiable appetite for everything I can learn, not only about Latin America, but also the southwestern United States. That is how I found the NG guide to Nevada and discovered their guides. Traveling to any area I have never been would be unthinkable without a comprehensive guide such as this Thank you.
