We were on a cruise around the Canary Ialands and this book worked pretty well for the holiday.
The first 39 pages in general information about the islands - history, geology, geography, flora, etc.
The next 100 pages then looks at each of the 7 islands. Each section starts with a map then describes each of the major towns, always beginning with the capital (which always has the most text).
The rest of the book is then practical stuff - shopping, eating, staying, etc.
We visited the capitals and did not explore the rest of the islands. For us the summary style of the book worked well and gave us ideas about what to visit in the limited tim that we were on shore.
Nothing is covered in much detail but that is the style of the book.

if you are going there - buy the book and read it before. it'll do the trick and make you want to go places - photos are quite appealing. One thing is missing though - practicalities, f.i. how to get from A to B. Some hints and tricks fro tourists could be useful too

Worthwhile if you have never visited any of the islands, but still needed to buy more in-depth guides for the one we visited. Great for general sightseeing and also good for tips on the idiosyncrasies of driving on Tenerife. However one important point missed was the use of low-powered cars on very steep hills - they can't cope! Also stick to the main routes, and don't rely on SatNavs - ours kept trying to take us up impossible roads for the car we had :(

Overall this is a good little guide. More tips on bus and ferry travel would have been helpful. I coul not easily find the ferry terminal in Las Palmas for Santa Cruz, but I suspect this was changed after the guide was published.

This Travel Guide arrived very quickly and in perfect condition. The book provides a great introduction to all aspects of the Canaries with a reasonable amount of context and excellently illustrated guides to the key attractions. Highly recommended.

This guide is ideal for a quick trip when you are visiting several islands. I was on a cruise, and this guide gave me basic info what to see on each island. Would have preferred town street plans for the main ports.

If you want to know about every church in ever hamlet on the Canaries, then this is the guide for you. However, for those of us with more secular interests, I would suggest looking for an alternative. Seriously, if you like historic buildings, I am sure this is a useful guide, but if you want to walk or see sights outside the towns the coverage is pretty poor. I would suggest a more specific guide to the island you are visiting.

Great book. Really useful for our trip to Lanzarote and taught us about all the great places to explore on the island, learn more about it and leave feeling we had seen everything. Although everything is quite well sign posted in the canaries, the Map was also really useful whilst we were out on the road.
Not sure how useful for the other islands as we didn't travel to them so can't really comment but am sure it would be just as useful.
