Full of useful information
on 10 September 2013
I always visit Greece for my holidays and have the usual travel guides, but when I spotted this I thought it was ideal, a good size to carry about rather than a rather large book covering all of Greece.
I found the book to be very informative, with descriptions of various towns and villages being filled with just the right amount of information. I wish I had found the book earlier so that I could have read it properly before going away, there were no large heavy going chapters but I think that perhaps I would have planned my holiday a little differently so that I got to see more of the island.
There are small black and white photos in the book and it is stated that the reason for this is to keep down costs, there is a link to a web site in the book where you can access further information and pictures, but I feel personally that the book would have benefited colour photographs, the black and white photos do not do the island justice, it is a beautiful island and this point is lost without colour.
There is also a voucher for 10% off purchase prices from some shops within Thassos Town and beyond, this is a good idea, but I personally didn't use it, as I found the choice of shops accepting this voucher to be limited.
I hope to return to Thassos and I shall be taking my book again for reference.
