2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre LP Guides: A worrying trend continues 16 April 2005
By A Customer
This guide confirms an ongoing pattern: Many modern LP guides are sloppily researched, hastily published and cater increasingly to middle- or upper-class travellers. To somebody like me, who has been using LP guides for almost 20 years, this is annoying. I feel almost "betrayed." Alright, Cyprus is an expensive destination with a dismal public transport system. But why needs LP reinforce this situation by listing very few cheap eats and basically telling readers to shut up and rent a car? The book literally tells you to ignore Nicosia's municipal buses because they only go to the suburbs and are thus (sic!) of no use. Well perhaps you will let me form my own opinion, thank you!? Even better - publish the official bus route map in the book, which costs you half a page of space and gets you 5 stars for making a decent effort to provide information.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Guide 27 Dec 2005
By Stuart
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Unless you are a tree hugging, hippy from Geneva, this guide, as always with the Lonely Planets range (and I have used them extensively), is excellent and covers all areas very well. P.s. Make sure you hire a car in Cyprus as the bus networks are not very reliable and mostly go into the suburbs :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Cyprus described as it should be 18 April 2001
By A Customer
If your travelling to Cyprus and do not leave until you have read this book. It describes Cyprus in so much detail you will never be stuck for that information you require. Maps, 100% detail on the country and much more more. A true guide for the Cyprus Visitor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Guide to visiting Cyprus 6 Oct 2004
An excellent guide providing the reader with essential places to visit in the republic and the north, includes recommendations for places to eat and be entertained.
The book also has a section providing you with background information on Cyprus and is clearly written by someone with a love for the country.
Highly recommended and perfect for planning a trip to this beautiful island.

The book arrived and it was in near perfect condition. What let the purchase down was it was a very old edition and still referred to cyprus pounds. True villages do not change in structure or location but travel information, etc, was out of date.
