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!

Format: Paperback
I have a large number of these travel guides. What I like about them is their format - each book gives an overview (rather than lots of detail). It provides a summary of what is on offer. Inside is not just the obvious i.e. the Top 10 sights to see. Also you get things like the Top 10 museums & galleries, Top 10 markets, Top 10 Arts & Crafts, Top 10 events etc. - even the Top 10 things to avoid. That makes them very useful, and a unique approach to travel guides. I use them to decide what to do, and then use another book (or a website) to give me more detail if I need that.

This book covers, for example:
 Grand Master's Palace, Valletta
 Magar Qim & Mnajdra Temples
 Marsaxlokk
 The Citadel, Ir-Rabat/Victoria, Gozo
 Dwerjra, Gozo
 Comino
 Top 10 Moments in History
 Top 10 Temples & Ancient Sites
 Top 10 Grand Masters
 Top 10 Churches & Cathedrals
 Top 10 Museums & Arts Centres
 Top 10 Areas of Natural Beauty
 Top 10 Walks & Drives
 Top 10 Beaches & Resorts
 Top 10 Outdoor Activities
 Top 10 Children's Activities
 Top 10 Restaurants
(This is some, not all)

The book in its physical format is small - just small enough to fit inside a DL envelope (i.e. the standard white envelope, designed to accept a sheet of A4 paper folded twice). It is actually a few centimetres shorter than a DL envelope. This compact size makes it easy to fit into your pocket.

This book can't provide detail - it can provide `the big picture'. I now normally take two travel guides with me - a DK Top 10 one like this and a detailed travel guide, to get the best of both worlds. If you just have a detailed travel guide, you can miss out on things that you wish you had visited.

It has all the usual features, including excellent maps and articles. There are excellent colour photos breaking up the text columns, so you can see what you are looking for.

A Great general guide to Malta and Gozo. It would be better to have more details on the places in island and more information on the best ways to get to visited the sites. Overall it is a good introduction the the Island of Malta and Gozo and is a handy size to take on holiday as a reference book.

I always get the DK Eye witness travel guides for my holiday adventures if they are available. The introduction of the top 10s is just great. Sometimes there is so much to see and explore that this format makes it easy to pick the parts you want and avoid getting home and realising you missed the best bit. Do get the main guide also though, the top ten is someone elses view and it may not be the same as yours but it does help to set out very simply the best bits. There's a section on the top ten of everything for the whole island, then a top tens for each area of the island covering churches, shopping, best places. A joy to read and useful companion

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.

Format: Paperback
Top 10 Malta and Gozo was an excellent little guide that came everywhere with us on our holiday. Packed with lots of interesting information not usually found in tour guides (such as historical facts) it also covered all of the best sites and attractions on the islands.

The book gives information in lists of top 10, covering all the major attractions with tips on what features to look out for to ensure you got the most out of the visit. Also gave comprehensive information on all the key resorts including restaurants, shopping and places of interest. We particularly liked the itineries which helped us plan our days to fit in as much as possible and even included cafe's and coffee shops to stop and rest at! It did not lead us anywhere we did not find worth a visit and we did not stumble across anywhere spectacular that was not covered in the guide. It also provided lots of helpful tips on travelling around Malta, things to try, local delicacies, moments in history... lots and lots of lists!

The only drawback was the restaurants sections. This was what we wanted most from a guide as we know dining abroad can be very hit and miss. There was not a ton of information and we could not always find the places listed. Obviously restaurants constantly come and go so we can't purely blame the guide. This shouldn't be something to put you off purchasing it, but would recommend the Time Out guide to Malta as a better resource for foodies!
