I bought three travel books for Egypt (also Rough Guide and Lonely Planet), and this was my favorite. It is loaded with pictures and 3D layouts of the tourist attractions and cities. It lists the sites not to be missed and gives a great summary of the places and history. The section on practicalities of travel is also complete and helpful. Although the latest Rough Guide to Egypt has more in-depth coverage, the DK book will be going with me to Egypt.

While this book has a lot of pretty pictures, and quite a bit of information, I found the lonely planet guide to have about twice as much information on any given area, and cover more of the obscure places in Egypt.

Not a bad guide, decent overview of all the sites and also cultural aspects of Egypt. My major complaint is that the maps are terrible. There is only one actual map, and it is only of Cairo (East of the Nile). So if you're staying in Giza (Cairo west of the Nile) you are kind of out of luck. Additionally there are loads of restaurants listed, but if they don't happen to be in Cairo then they will be no map of the location. If you're considering eating out, or doing anthing without a guide then you will need an additional guide book.

Purchased this book for our recent trip to Egypt, it's beautiful as they all are, but I don't believe they include enough content as say Frommer's or Rick Steve's books.
I love the pictures, but if I was going somewhere and needed an in depth guide I would not get it.

I love the DK books because of all the pictures. They give you a really good idea what a place looks like before you get there plus gives you brief descriptions of the most interesting and popular places to go. It is not a stand alone book however, because it is not filled with details. For the details, you'll also need a Rough Guide or Lonely Planet. Those books are much more in depth. I always combine a DK book with one of the others and have all the info I need.

I've been to Egypt twice before, and on my third trip I decided to bring this guide with me, and am I ever glad I did. Though I am quite familiar with the bigger sites, the maps in this book are not to be outdone, and I was impressed by the list of smaller sites I had never considered visiting before.

This is a great first book to begin an understanding of Egypt before travel. It covers all major areas in extensive detail; provides suggestions for the best places to visit while in the country; detail pictures of what to look for at various sites;and the last section on travel tips I found invaluable. It is current (2008 ed) and I especially like the size of the book, which can be tucked into a carry-on bag or a back-pack while touring and doesn't weigh a ton. "Don't leave home without it!"

This book is a beauty. The photos are beautiful and the information is well presented and easy to use. I have used these books before and really like them. We have not gone on our trip yet but on other trips these guidebooks have helped us find places and sites that we probably would have missed otherwise. Well worth the price.
