Lonely Planet Egypt (Country Travel Guide) Reviews
I have used Lonely Planet guides I don't know how many times. I have always loved them....but this one stinks.
Loved this as with all Lonely Planet travel books.
I'm fond of Lonely Planet Guides and the text of this one is useful, but they have not done a good job of translating the book to Kindle. There are too many places where there should be a link (that is, the text suggests there's a link) but there is no link. I haven't actually compared the Kindle version to the actual book, but it appears that pieces are just missing. I'd stay away until LP or Amazon gets this under control.
I gave it a low rating because I made the mistake of getting the kindle version. It's just too difficult to flip through. The paperback versions of Lonely Planet I have always loved. Guess I will either have to upgrade to the Kindle Fire or just get the paperback versions for when I'm traveling.
Used it in travel. It's heavy but comes in handy. The book has a lot of information including some of the history.
I downloaded this to my IPad and there seems to be something wrong with it. By the time I realized what a problem it was, I missed the seven day deadline for returning it. On the table of contents for Cairo, there are several items that do not take you to the portion indicated, but instead produce a pop-up window that says "8 other people highlighted this part of the book." That is really annoying. But the worst thing is that the maps, which are so important in a book like this, are completely unreadable. When I try to zoom in, the words become totally blurred, and at regular magnification, it is too small to see anything at all. They should fix these problems and update the copies of those of us who bought this thinking it was a real Lonely Planet guide!
We just returned from Egypt and normally I love Lonely Planet books, and actually bought 2 copies of this one (left the first one at home) but i recommend you look for other options. Several times we found the information in the book to be outdated or unhelpful.
I am planning a trip to Egypt in October, and studied Egyptology in college. I am actually still in the process of reading this travel guide cover to cover and I'm about half way through. I can say it had provided amazing tips and advice. I have yet to test it out and see it's accuracy, but there are no lengthy articles, very easy to reference, plenty of helpful suggestions and insider views. Highly recommend this.
