About us  







Focus Guides is run by the award-winning British travel writer and author Andrew Sanger, together with his partner Gerry Dunham. Andrew writes and edits the site, while Gerry deals with day to day administration.

Our story

Focus Guides was created by Andrew Sanger in 1994 as an online travel bookstore, selling guidebooks at reduced prices, with free postage. He later added the WebSight pages, a searchable directory of thousands of travel websites.

With the growing success of major online bookseller Amazon.com, and subsequently Amazon.co.uk, who were offering larger discounts and faster delivery, it was no longer viable for Focus Guides to sell guidebooks, and with the rise of Google enabling quick searches of the entire internet, an online travel directory was no longer useful.

In October 2009, Focus Guides relaunched with a focused range of one-page travel guides to destinations personally visited, researched  and updated several times a year by Andrew Sanger.

All our guides are free to use or print. More may be added at a leisurely pace. Our income comes from Google and other advertisers and links to guidebooks purchased from Amazon.
