Ideal for those who want to explore.,
This review is from: The Rough Guide to Crete (Rough Guide Travel Guides) (Paperback)
We travelled to Western Crete twice last year ('08) and bought a few guide books before the first trip, however, this one was the only one to make the second trip (and will be with us again this year when we visit Central Crete). This edition was published in 2007 and we did find a few inaccuracies such as a recommended taverna that was no longer in business. I suspect that these were recent changes, but generally the guidance is accurate. We certainly visited places that we would never have found without this guide.
As with all Rough Guides, there are relatively few colour photographs, but it is the detailed and descriptive "local knowledge" that really stands out. Recommended for those who want to explore Crete. If you are happy to sit by the hotel pool, walk to the nearest beach and go on guided tours you probably wont get much use from this guide.
