Book Description

1 Feb 2013 Rough Guide to...

The new full-colour Rough Guide to Egypt is the definitive guide to this amazing country, whose ancient civilization still fascinates today. But there's more to Egypt than just pyramids and temples. The Red Sea offers some of the world's finest diving, a few hours by air from Europe. There are awesome dunes and lush oases to explore in its deserts, and fantastic bazaars and mosques in the capital, Cairo.

Detailed accounts of every attraction, along with crystal-clear maps and plans, make it easy to access anything from remote oases to nightlife that only locals know. You'll find lavish photography and colour maps throughout, along with insider tips on how to get the best out of Luxor's temples or Sinai's beach resorts. At every point, the Rough Guide steers you to the best hotels, cafés, restaurants and shops across every price range, giving you balanced reviews and honest, first-hand opinions.

Make the most of your time with The Rough Guide to Egypt.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Rough Guide Smooths Everything Out 21 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide to Luxor and its surrounds 22 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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

3.0 out of 5 stars good content, poor format 27 Aug 2014
By alan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.
