5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Walking Guide 24 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Contains accurate descriptions and excellent maps of a wide variety of walks. Long, circular, strenuous, less strenuous (no walk on La Gomera is easy!). All couched in a marvelously dry wit.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dramatic and unspoilt haven for walkers 30 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
I'm familiar with several other Charles Davis books in the Walk! series from Discovery Walking Guides so I knew this would be accurate, factuall and entertaining. I was not disappointed. If you are planning on visiting this amazing Canary Island - only a quick ferry trip from Tenerife - take this book (and the companion La Gomera Tour & Trail Map. A few pounds very well spent!

1.0 out of 5 stars Take a good map instead! 27 July 2013
Verified Purchase
This book purports to be an update. However, from the three walks we tried the author has not walked them for some long time! e.g views now obscured by vegetation for which you have made a detour.After three we dared try no more.
The walk numbers do not tie in with map that one can buy to accompany it.Nor do they tie with half of the GPS waypoints.
The Charles Davis map shows one path that appears no longer to exist, unless you want to scramble down near vertical scree. The alternative is a long walk down the main road into San Sebastien- no fun!
Despite saying that the book includes GPS waypoints, the 2013 edition does not! To get these you have to download and then run them through a program that most people are unlikely to have and also spend a lot of time.
For us this was a very bad purchase, produced in an amateurish manner. A real disappointment!
By contrast, someone had left a copy of Paddy Dillon's book of walks in the apartment. His walk numbers matched the official trail markers. We will take that next time.
In the event there are Canary trails, which are well marked now, but maybe this post dated Mr Davis last visit? Can I have my money back?

2.0 out of 5 stars sloppy and cavalier 3 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
The author is sloppy regarding the details of some of the walks and is cavalier in his attitude regarding the challenges of others.
