Format: Paperback
being an egyptophile now for some years + amassing nearly all the travel guides on egypt, i can with my hand on my heart say that dan richmond, et alia, have by far the best, informative + succint guide.
if i had to only choose one for a trip to egypt, then the rough guide wins hands down. the information is thorough, measured and as accurate as it possibly can be. the style of writing makes me chorkle as the innate humour could only have come from one who knows egypt, its people + its quirks. so really as u read it u are transported to egypt by the book's very fragrant anecdotes.
this new edition (5th) has improved on its detailing of places to stay ~ my main bug bear with the 4th edition + the reference sections pertaining to music + further reading at the end of the book are superb for the initial toe dip into, what is, one of the most interesting + intriquing countries on the planet.
PLEASE rough guide take out a Cairo city guide ~ this is one hole in the market that is waiting to be filled.

Bloody marvellous!!! Bought a "used " copy on the grounds that a travel guide was going to get battered and worn anyway, O arrival it appeared the guide had never been opened, yet alone read!!
Anyway, a terrific, concise, and easy to follow book, which unusually for a travel guide, was grouped in sections that were historically and geographically banded accurately together , rather than having to flip to and fro from one section to another..
Overall..excellent. A +

......but doesn't cover things like the small coloured canyon which is often suggested as an alternative to the big coloured canyon. The book was useful for my trip though and arrived in good condition/time.

Everyone thinks Egypt is Pyramids and the Sphinx. This book demonstrates that there is far more to the country than that. It's a good read as well.Recommended.
