This book was so helpful when we traveled through Egypt. I particularly remember it guided us to a couple of amazing restaurants and after a particularly bustled day, a shop with an uncharacteristically quiet shopkeeper, which was a relief after being yelled at by people in the market! Egypt is an incredible country and I'd love to return... when I go, I'll be taking this book with me again!

Bought this for my last vist to Eygpt,last year. The information was very good and pointed me in the right directions to help me enjoy my stay.
My rating being low is more because while in Luxor it was nearly impossible to walk in the streets and enjoy the sights without being plagued by sellers every few yards.
I will purchase other country guides in the future from the lonely planet range but will probably not return to Eygpt.

Great lonely planet book and really helped us plan our Egypt trip. It was invaluable whilst there as were the maps

I like Lonely Planet guides and this was no exception. I spend a lot of time before trips going through these guides to maximise the time I am there. Sorting out what excursions are must do and which are not is best done at home with plenty of time rather than under the pressure of a tourist/sales guide.

liked : generally good guide
disliked: not detailed enough. Should be more on how to find entrances &c (the perimeter of a site can be miles) details about getting boats ferries & cruises (where & how much) and why don't they tell you the airport prices & what the duty free is like?

Valuable pre-holiday reading

Very in-depth, but a lot of it wasn't used during my holiday. Great history and background, which makes good reading, nonetheless.

A very good guide book. We used several recommendations from the book and they proved to be spot on. We always use the Lonely Planet guides when going on holiday.
