I own about 40 DK Eyewitness Travel Guides and usually take one on my travels to complement a more thoroughly written guidebook like Rough Guide or Lonely Planet. The photos are always excellent, providing a fine visual overview of places. DK Cyprus, though, was perhaps the least useful DK Travel Guide that I have ever used. The descriptions of places were drier than Cyprus' summer weather, and the photos added little to what was in the more compact, less expensive DK Top 10 Cyprus book. Carrying 4 guidebooks (DK, DK Top 10, Lonely Planet, and Rough Guide) for our travels throughout all regions of the island, I soon realized that I could have been perfectly happy if I had only carried Rough Guide and DK Top 10.

This is an excellent guide.I am from Cyprus,have travelled extensively around the island,and have suggested this book to visiting friends and relatives who have used it and also liked it a lot.The book has the History section right--possibly the best condensed history of Cyprus I have ever read--,divides the island in 5 very useful sections,selects the best sites and puts them clearly on excellent updated maps,it has great photos that help one decide one's itinerary,and,above all,it is very well written.This guide is much better that the Lonely Planet one--that does not even mention St Neophytos Monastery in Pafos,or the Lempa Experimental Village.Cyprus can be explored in around 10 days,and this guide can truly help you plan your itinerary and enrich your travel experience.Buy it!

The book was the only one we carried with us as we toured both the Republic of Cyprus (South) and the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus. There is excellent information on line about the South, but the book was absolutely necessary for the North. It is light weight and tells about the sites. We used the internet to confirm times in the South and found some of the times for the North that way. In the south we used GPS but it doesn't yet exist for the north. This book had helpful informaion that with the maps provided by the TRNC tourism information booths, made it relatively easy to find our way around--remember the days before GPS and internet. In planning the trip I also used a couple of other tour books that I borrowed from the library.

When I travel, I always bring along the LONELY PLANET and EYEWITNESS TRAVEL GUIDE books. The LONELY PLANET books usually have more information on all aspects of travel while the EYEWITNESS TRAVEL GUIDES are full of pictures of the sites of a country so you can plan your trip.
This was the first time I found myself using the EYEWITNESS TRAVEL GUIDE more than the LONELY PLANET book for planning my days in Cyprus. Although Cyprus is a small country, bus service can be limited to out of the way places. I could look at the EYEWITNESS GUIDE and get a clear idea if the site was worth the effort to visit. It was amazingly helpful and I will keep this book as a souvenir of the trip because of the wonderful color pictures.
