1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version is completely useless Dec 30 2011
By therefromhere - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recently got my first kindle and immediately thought it would be the ultimate travel guide replacement. (no more bulky book to carry around!) How wrong I was. The maps are completely illegible. There is no way to zoom and the print is so faint and its blurred beyond reading. I even got a magnifying glass to confirm the resolution is junk. I was also unable to print the maps from my laptop using the kindle cloud reader.

Why is this important? Without the map, the location references are worthless. The translations from Arabic to English are never exact so you can't find street names easily even on google. If you can't find a street then an entire section becomes worthless. I gave up using the guide on the first day in Cairo. This book is great for background info, but as a guide you will be lost. Period.

What is so upsetting is that its easy to see there is fantastic potential for the kindle as a travel eguide. But it's not there yet. Get the paper version for another year or two or three until this medium matures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Egypt: Rough Guide April 17 2011
By Jon Kear-Colwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In my long experience of international travelling Rough Guides are the standard to be met, and this 2010 edition of the Egypt guide lives up to that standard. It is not totally comprehensive, but what guide book can be if it is not to be 1,000 plus pages long. It does an excellent workmanship like job, and is more than useful in the field. Thank you to rough guides.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Travel Companion Feb. 8 2011

I read this book prior to traveling to Egypt and we had it with us on our trip. I used it as a reference nearly everyday, primarily for the sites. At night, I read what we would see the next day. Also, this was a very good reference when it came time to label my photos.
4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect companion for our Egypt trip Feb. 10 2013
By S. Goulding - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was the only guidebook I took with us on our two-week trip to Egypt, which included Cairo, Luxor, Aswan, Abu Simbel, and Hurghada on the Red Sea. I especially liked the descriptions and history of the many Temples and Tombs we visited -- the book helped me keep them straight! I also like the realistic and casual conversational style throughout the book. One issue I had though, was with the small language section of the guide -- some of the basic phrases did not match the ones provided in the companion "Egyptian Arabic" phrasebook I also purchased.
