It's two thousand miles or more from the UK and Ireland to the Greek islands, so for most visitors flying is the only viable option. Read the first page

Having just returned from 2 weeks in the Cyclades we realised after our second island hop that the Rough Guide to the Greek Island was out of touch with our wants and needs. The guide appears to be suited to the impoverished backpacker who would rather be discovering untrodden paths in a far flung part of the Indonesian archipelago rather than in a well developed EU member state. The authors were either not allowed to sample good food or accomodation, or were just in a rush to get something on the book shelves ahead of Lonely Planet. We tried several of the recommended restaurants and found them to be no more than average, the good hotels gave little to no detail apart from price. The places recommended to visit appeared to be based upon how untouched by tourism they were rather than on their beauty or interest. Frequently the most beautiful parts of the island were dismissed as 'best be avoided in season' by the authors in a manner that would suggest visitors to England would be best to avoid Bath, Oxford and Cambridge and seek out unspoilt towns such as Rochdale, Rotherham and Huddersfield which are less affected by crowds. Overall, this is the most disappointing of the Rough Guides I have sampled and 'best to be avoided'

This is very disappointing as there are only a few very basic maps- no town maps at all.The info is very out of date. We have a paperback copy of the Rough Guide to the Dodocanese but didn't want to take the weight of it backpacking round the Greek Islands. We thought this would be a more up to date version too(although we only bought the paperback at the end of 2010 it's dated 2005)but it isn't.

Having dug out my old Rough Guide to the Greek Islands I realised it was time to get hold of the updated version ahead of our forthcoming family holiday. I am so pleased I did as these books just get better and better. The descriptions are so informative and the photo's are stunning. We cannot wait to go now having read all about where we are staying, where we are planning to go on day trips and where we intend to chill out over dinner each night. I really can't imagine going on a trip without one of these trusted guides.

Not really enough detail on each island. Better than the "whole-of-Greece" books though I would like to see a section on Athens added. Even though Athens is not an island (obviously) almost everyone has to pass through it to get to the islands at some point so a short section would be a useful addition.

Woof !
