3.0 out of 5 stars Basic guide came in handy 21 July 2012
By Laura
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book does exactly what it says on the cover and breaks the island into lists of top ten places to go within a category. However it is out of date and Amadores beach is gorgeous after a recent redevelopment. Maspolamas dunes are worth seeing however sadly they are now covered in touts and aggressive time share sellers which ruins the experience. Although the glass bottom boat trip in Puerto Rico was worth every penny. Its always worth doing a little research before a trip however a Spanish phrase book was more useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars DK top 10 books 26 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback
I have bought dozens of travel books through the years and my favourite are these DK eyewitness top 10 ones. I like to use a combination of the Internet and books to figure out what to do in an area. I find that these top 10 books give you a small amount on info but in a very concise manner. This allows you to google a little bit more information and find out if you like the thing mentioned in the book. The books are small and thin enough to fit in a deep pocket which means you don't feel like you are carrying a set of dictionaries on holiday.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't blame the messenger! 12 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It did what it said on the cover by describing the 10 best things to do in Gran Canaria. Unfortunately, GC is not a very exciting place and the main reason to go there is for the wonderful sun, sea and sand throughout the year, which doesn't need a guiide book to tell you about. I cannot blame the book for not having more exciting things to describe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent concise guide 13 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This guide is compact and concise, covering all the main points of interest on the island. An ideal travel companion, as it is lightweight and small in size - important!

Useful overview of the main sights. A lack of detail makes judgement of which site to visit difficult, e.g. the Gaunche cave dwellings, can't really tell which are most extensive and impressive. The book also makes out that to drive all the way round the island is an epic day trip; now with the motorway extended to the Mogan Barranco, the spectacular west coast drive is probably only about 4 hours and the remainder of the motorway drive about 2 hours.

My main criticism is the top 10 theme adopted throughout which seems to excessively restrict the content. For example, attractions often feature in several different top 10 lists, with slightly different information in each entry and cross-references to the other entries. This makes the book difficult to use to maximum advantage. The book also stated that the Columbus museum in Las Palmas had free admission, but when I visited there was an admission charge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good enough 14 May 2013
Format:Paperback
A last minute purchase to give us an idea of things to do and places to go on our holiday. Doesn't provide a great deal of detail but didn't expect it to. A useful easy guide to use. We like lists!

This is a very useful pocket guide, with lots of helpful information. Maps at the end too small to be easily read.

4.0 out of 5 stars It did the job required for a weeks stay on the island
It covered all areas of interest to an adequate level. Those that have specialist interests such as gardens or Architecture may want a more detailed guide.
