I have always liked the DK Travel Guides and this is no exception! Loads of great info on the history of the island and also places to visit/eat. The practical info at the back is always very good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Especially Suitable for the Sightseer 24 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback
Item reviewed: 2012 edition (minor revisions being made every two years)

This book is comprised of:

* Introducing Cyprus (incl history), 30 pp (i.e. of a suitable size to be read on the flight over)
* Cyprus Region by Region (West, South, Troodos Mountains, Central, South Nicosia, North), 120 pp
* Travellers' Needs (mostly hotels and restaurants), 34 pp
* Survival Guide (practical info and good index), 28 pp

This is more illustrated than conventional guidebooks such as Lonely Planet. With those guidebooks, when you arrive at a major sight, you have to read or reread an essay of say five hundred words, and at the end may still be confused as to where exactly things are. DK's brilliant innovation is that instead they provide a labelled diagram, a bit like an aerial photograph, that orients you immediately and shows you where to go for the most interesting items. Of course this takes a lot of space so it's only done for major attractions – Kato Paphos, Kourion, Limassol Castle, Kykkos monastery, Salamis, and Kyrenia Castle.

Another DK innovation is the illustrated diagrams of sightseeing walks, which make it much easier to locate the places of interest, and much harder to get lost, than with other guidebooks. Unfortunately in the Cyprus guidebook there is only one recommended walk, in South Nicosia.

The bottom line is this. If you want to spend your time at the poolside, then that is fine but this guide (or any guide) is useless to you. If you want to get out and see the place, without spending a lot of time reading, then this book is ideal.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for a quick holiday guide. 10 July 2014
By MiggyF
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not quite as good as I expected being a DK fan. The southern Cyprus is covered adequately but the northern part is rather spartan and I felt biased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eyewitness Best Guides for Visiting New Places 3 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As always the Eyewitness Guide is best for helping me to plan a holiday in advance. The extensive use of photographs always helps me plan which places are most worth visiting in a short holiday with just enough historical background information to put different sites in context. I like a combination of visiting archeological sites, ralxing and exploring etc and the Eyewitness guides layout helps me plan which things would go well together to make an itinerary. The only failing is the sparse and poor restaurant recommendations- I don't really want an Irish pub when I got to the Mediterranean.

5.0 out of 5 stars This visual guide is useful 7 Oct 2013
By sv_lon
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Reading through loads of words in a travel book is something i enjoyed before but now i do not have much time do so. This guide book is thus a perfect substitution. It has good balance of textual information and photographs.Having seen a photograph of a destination i can easily make up my mind to travel there or not. The Cyprus guide is quite adequate in this regard and served my purpose. We tried lot of tips provided and were pleased with the results
