4.0 out of 5 stars money well spent, 15 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We took it to Israel for the time we spent there. It was useful as a brief guide to most places and also gave a little history.
The Section on Massada was particularly good as an overview. I would buy a Brief Guide as opposed to other guides which might be better known.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview for touring, 8 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Insight Guides: Israel (Paperback)
The guide gave some good background information and was well put together in terms of the chapters selected and the scope of the material. The maps themselves could have been better for anyone wanting to drive. Not enough of the lesser roads were shown and it seemed that some of the older cities e.g. in the Negev, that have been granted World Heritage Site status were not really well covered. What about an estimate of the time taken to undertake a reasonable 'visit'? This is a bit subjective but could be useful.
We stayed in Kibbutz rooms but I do not remember much about that aspect either (but could be mistaken as the book is not to hand at the moment). We also found quite a lot of other places researching the web that were not covered in the guide e.g. Scorpion Trail.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great first step toward the Holy Land., 14 Feb. 2015

This review is from: Insight Guides: Israel (Paperback)
Well presented and very helpful. Photography is excellent and articles on political history are very informative. I would have liked a bit more detail on historical sights, architecture, archaeology etc. However a great starting point for a planned tour.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wrong Cover, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a lovely guide book but I was surprised to find when I opened it, that the cover is the title page for the guide to Australia!
If you click to open it you will see what I mean!
