"Wills...offers an armchair world ecotour to the nth degree.... The reader does not need a background in genetics or ecology to appreciate this last lecture-style book...Chock-full of wonderful photographs, this book is strongly recommended for readers seeking insight into their world and the ecological places they visit."
"a stellar new travel book...dense with fascinating knowledge and laugh-out-loud moments...the perfect holiday gift for your globetrotting friends."
"Wills' has written a glorious examination of Earth's lesser known biological fauna and flora, giving this an alien yet welcoming feel."
"The Darwinian Tourist is a great book, which includes engaging discussions of natural history from a very personal point of view. The stories are told effectively in part because of the fantastic photographic work of the author. After reading this volume, one cannot help but wonder what The Voyage of the Beagle would have looked like if Darwin had a digital camera." Jay Odenbaugh, The Quarterly Review of Biology
