This is a poorly produced, often unhelpful guide. I could forgive an occasional inaccuracy in editing (45km from Hania to the far west via Elafonissi?), and I would never blame a guidebook for a business disappearing, changing its opening hours or its name. But there is too much in here which is wrong. The indexing is sloppy and there's little of the essential logistical detail which makes a guidebook a trusted friend (translate "the road worsens" into "it's passable in a 4 wheel drive if you don't mind driving round hairpin bends on unstable stony tracks for an hour or more"). It's repetitive, inconsistent and undiscriminating. The layout is irritating and unhelpful. I'm a lifelong Rough Guides fan and only bought this because it's a 2012 edition. I wish I hadn't bothered. It is reliable on eating recommendations however.

I bought this as I had a trip to Crete planned and it was a new edition. I have several other guides to Crete and would rate this as a middling one. It is small and light enough to take in luggage but I felt it does not have enough detail, especially about the out of the way, little known places, which, let's face it, is why you buy a lonely planet guide! If it is your first trip to Crete and you just want to use this to make sure you don't miss the main sights I would recommend it but if you want to go off the beaten track and see the lesser known places I would say buy something else.

We bought this to help us get to see the major attractions of western Crete. It was not much help. It was not easy to use and, although it was the latest edition, seemed out of date. Even though we shall be returning to the island, we left it in our villa. A ten year old AA guide was more useful. I shall not buy another Lonely Planet Guide.

Format: Paperback
Waste of money and out of date.

The maps etc could be found in other guides or online.

Can't forgive out of date info, numerous inaccuracies etc (eg opening times, distances, prices, even locations).

Crete is a fantastic destination, but this guide is in need of an update.

The lonely planet guides are excellent. We used this on holiday and it helped in a multitude of ways from understanding the local culture to snippets about villages/towns we went through. Would recommend.

We took this book along with The Rough Guide to Crete when we visited in July 2012. This book has some good information but we found that the The Rough Guide was more to our liking and contained much more detail on the areas we wanted to go and check out. We eventually used this book only as a back up, it contains better maps - however we found that there were plenty of free maps available from towns and shops. If we visit again we would definitely take the Rough Guide. We may still take this along for belts and braces.

Great little guide book for our first visit to Crete. Referred to lots of pages before and during our visit and hoping to return to the island as there's lots more we want to do!
