We are pleased to partner with DK Eyewitness Travel Guides, and will be reviewing many of their travel guides for our Wandering Educators.


DK Eyewitness Travel’s full-color guidebooks to hundreds of destinations around the world truly show you what others only tell you. They have become renowned for their visual excellence, which includes unparalleled photography, 3-D mapping and specially commissioned cutaway illustrations. DK Eyewitness Travel Guides are the only guides that work equally well for inspiration, as a planning tool, a practical resource while traveling and a keepsake following any trip.

DK Eyewitness Travel Guides are full color guides that show you what others only tell you.  Beautifully designed, these guides work well to inspire travelers to visit the places they see in the book and can function like all-in-one souvenir at the end of a trip.

Started in the 1990s, Dorling Kindersley’s addition to travel guide oeuvre has redefined the full-color travel guide.

"In just 15 years DK Eyewitness Travel has become the world's biggest guidebook publisher. Every day, more people consult an Eyewitness or Top 10 Travel Guide than any other guidebook brand.  I think that's because our books are useful and beautiful in equal proportion.  Our editors and designers do their best to provide the information travellers need in a form which is simply a joy to use - information is clearly and consistently structured, and the gorgeou illustrations bring the destination to life. People don't just like our books - they absolutely love them." Douglas Amrine, DK Travel Publisher
