I had the previous edition out of the library planning our trip to Egypt and bought the latest issue for the trip itself. It is excellent although I did have nagging thoughts that the previous edition seemed more comprehensive somehow. I have not put both issues together to make a comparison so it is probably just the updated format; maybe one or two maps are on a single page whereas they were on two before ? Either way if there are any differences they are minimal and the book is SUPERB. Others use Lonely Planet but to me they fall short of the depth of the RG. We travelled to Cairo, Aswan, cruised to Luxor - all the places we visited, temples, tombs - everything - were covered - with helpful suggestions along the way.

One suggestion I might add myself is if you are planning to visit the Valley of The Kings, most tours go early in the morning (as we did with our formal tour) so the place is crowded. We revisited under our own steam a few days later at at 3 pm and it was virtually deserted plus we had nice evening shadows giving great atmosphere. We also visited Howard Carter's house on the way - it is well worth the visit.

I haven't been to Egypt since 2007 and a lot has happened in the world since and in Egypt in particular. I am entranced by the remnants of Ancient Egypt and we decided that it was about time we went back and we should get a new guide book.

We were based in Luxor and didn't travel very far - to the temples and Luxor Museum and across to the West Bank by public ferry. We found the Rough Guide to Egypt was relevant and up to date. We tried the restaurants it recommended and we enjoyed them. The maps were good, we walked from the Winter Palace to the Sheraton via Television Street and other key local shopping streets and the maps were correct (better at the moment than Google maps - which did give a warning that they might not be completely accurate). It was easy to find information. Everything you would want from a guide book

all the info is on there, and its good, but they really haven't sorted out the way people use guide - flipping from map to page, earmarking pages for future use, searching for info in different places - still about 10 times quicker in the book this means you drain battery life from the device you are using. At present would still pay twice the price for the book rather than the download.

as always this is the book to take to Egypt - We never travel there without it - best site maps - and lots of information.
Have been using this guide book to Egypt for over 20 years - updating as soon as new addition is published.
In my opinion don't waste your cash with any other book.
