Greek Islands are too many, and when you want to look for specific info on one of them, the guide only provides 1 page out of the 300 pages! Mykonos, which is a very recognized destination, only contained few pages of info, and basically, not more than what a free map can give you.
the suggested restaurants were nothing more special than any other one to suggest.

Important info such as buses to go to the beach, and timetables, was not there!
I did not use the guide at all...

By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 13 Jun. 2015
Format: Paperback
This 576-page book - the 8th edition of March 2015 - is an interesting and readable guide to the many islands that are scattered around Greece. This is a well-designed and presented guide, with useful maps. This is not a glossy guide with lots of colour pictures, but it is a well-designed and laid out guide, with colour used only sparingly. It is intended to be a helpful guide to things to see and do, and not just a list of things to see and do.

It is broken down into four major sections:

Page 4 - Plan Your Trip:
Introduction to the isles of Greece, what to look out for (Greek Islands Top 16), what you need to know in advance, touristy stuff, etc.

Page 59 - On The Road (“The Guide”):
P060: Athens & around
P126: Saronic Gulf Islands (5 entries)
P153: Cyclades (22)
P248: Crete (9)
P299: Dodecanese (16)
P372: Northeastern Aegean Islands (10)
P437: Evia & the Sporades (2)
P463: Ionian Islands (10)

Page 506 - Understand (local culture):
History, the Islanders, nature & wildlife, arts, cuisine etc.

Page 542 - Survival Guide:
A-Z Directory, transportation, etc.
P557: Language
P566: Index

Very useful and important knowledge is in this book. Loved learning greek, some words like "efharisto" are still with me today.
If you're planning on visiting more than one greek island, get this book. If you're going on a one off holiday to one island, find a book more specific to that island. If you're a map person, I recommend getting a map specific to each island as the maps in Lonely Planet can sometimes be too small or vague.

This is a good guidebook for anybody who wants to visit several Greek islands. It gives details of how to get to and from the islands, where to stay, where to eat and what to see in each main town on each island. If you only want to visit one island I think the Berlitz guides to individual islands are better but this is good for comparison.

Very disappointing book from LP, very scant information all round. I wouldn't bother again personally, we resorted to buying internet for our phones as it also transpires free wifi in Greece is pretty scarce.

Going to the islands this summer. Looking forward to visiting places and knowing a bit before getting there. Lonely Planet do a good job.

It's a good guide only for general information. There are so many islands covered that only limited info is provided on each of them.
