Cairo is not a Pharaonic city though the presence of the Pyramids leads many to be otherwise. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
This book is extremely useful as a guide or indroduction to modern Cairo. The author's enthusiasm for this ancient and somewhat surrealistic city is infectious. Apart from practical information, history and culture are neatly summarized. I would recommend this book to anyone who plans to visit Cairo, or has any interest in it as a city.

Nothing more than a chapter from Lonely Planet Egypt 24 Feb. 2000
By "coldethyl2" - Published on
Format: Paperback
Just returned from Egypt. Took the Lonely Planet Egypt and Cairo. Every word in this book is in the Egypt text, which is far more thorough and informative. Don't waste your money on this older book when the newest Egypt has all of this plus the rest of country updated.

Good to have, but not as your only guide 9 May 2000
By Michael McDaniel - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
During our recent trip to Egypt, we found this guide to be extremely helpful. Its information on lodgings, restaurants, and sights is unmatched by other guides. We found it had slightly more information than Lonely Planet Egypt, but we could easily have gotten by with the latter. It *is* nice to have the smaller volume to carry around in Cario, though.
If you get only one guide, make it the Lonely Planet Egypt (unless your plans only include Cairo). If you are spending significant time in Cairo, it's probably worth springing for the smaller volume, too.

Don't Leave Home Without It 3 May 2001
By Rami Ashhab - Published on
Format: Paperback
We had five travel books going into a one week trip to Cairo last month. After one day we realized the quality of this guide and tossed the others back in the bag. We stayed in the heart of Islamic Cairo, so the detailed information on that part of the city was especially helpful. There are even several walking paths that the author maps out to help you make the most out of your sight seeing. Other guides might have a lot of colorful pictures, but the quality of information is not even comparable. Several pages started falling out of the guide by the end of our trip because of overuse!
p.s. I think we had the 2nd edition.

This is the best travel guide I have ever used. 9 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This guide is the most accurate and well-written travel book that I have ever purchased. I took it everywhere. It honestly told me what to expect - good and bad. I am certain that my positive travelling experience would have been different without it. Please buy this book over its rivals it is indispensible!

Great guide 5 Jan. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This guide is excellent. I lived in Cairo for a year and this book gives you a lot of "inside" information for anyone who wants to thoroughly explore the city.
