Planning a holiday on Gozo I was concerned I'd made a poor decision when I received this book and found that there were only 6 pages dedicated to Gozo out of a total of 117.

Not so.

The book lists Top 10's that include both Malta and Gozo so you'll find Gozo references sprinkled throughout the lists-on history, churches, restaurants, local food, beaches and areas of natural beauty- to name just a few.

The guide is well illustrated in colour throughout, has all the usual DK production qualities and includes maps that you can use separately.

It enabled me to prioritise easily and when I wanted more information provided web site references etc.

One essential list is the `10 things to avoid'. Item 2 `Driving' is spot on. Take it from me!

Only had 6 days in Malta, which was not nearly enough time for all the amazing sites to see, however this book was invaluable. The maps are accurate and the advice sound. Would definitely reccommend it you will not be disappointed.

I have always been a fan of Eyewitness Guides, but this is the first in their Top 10 series that I have used. For each of the headings there is a list of the top 10 sites or things to do. This means there is a lot of repetition as sites are listed under several different headings.

To give two examples:
Hal Saflieni (Hypogeum) is listed under Malta and Gozo highlights, Temples and Ancient Sites, Around Southern Malta and also has a two page spread.
Azure Window is listed under Around Gozo and Comino, Dwejra and Top 10 diving and snorkelling sites.

Very often the information is similar for each of the listings.

There is little information about history and culture of the islands or getting around.

There is a small scale map in the front cover which marks towns and villages and shows main roads. The pull out laminated map in the back is the same scale. This is adequate for planning but is useless for navigating once on the island. It does have a map of Valletta, Senglea and Vittoriosa and part of Sliema. There are a few basic street plans showing the location of the listed sites for some towns.

There are also suggestions how to spend one or two days in each place. There is a brief section at the back with suggestions for accommodation.

I was very disappointed in this book. I felt it is geared at the lazy traveller who wants to be told what the must sees are and what to do. Don't waste your money. There are better books around.

Not as good as other eyewitness guides we've used, and we've used a lot. Prices and times not accurate, and we prefer more cultural and historical information.

The Guide is a condensed version of the normal DK guides, which we normally swear by. The Malta guide is small enough to fit in your pocket, but I did struggle to read the small text. It provides a series of lists of 10 ten items as a 'best of' format.

I also found the information too brief. Also there was a loose map located in a plastic pocket on the back cover, which we soon managed to lose. So, while the guide may be adequate for a superficial, break-neck tour of the archipelago, it wasn't up to the high DK standards we have come to expect.
