New to our guides?
Footprint Focus guides are smaller, soft cover guidebooks which focus on specific destinations such as São Paulo in Brazil, or classic itineraries such as Zanzibar & Pemba in Tanzania. Rather than cover an entire country, Focus guides are tightly defined by destination, providing all the info you need and none of the stuff you don't! Like our Handbooks, these guides are reliable, up-to-date, and provide many opportunities to get off the beaten track. Unlike most guidebooks however these lightweight guides are slim enough to fit in your pocket - so they will help you get the most out of your destination without weighing you down.

With up-to-date comprehensive information covering specific regions, these eBooks are perfect for a weekend away - or to add to your library for year backpacking the world. Priced from just £2.99 our Focus Guide eBooks contain accurate information, maps and hyperlinks so you have easy access to additional information on hotels, eateries and attractions.
