If you are planning to gaze upon the Pyramids, climb Mount Sinai, sail the Nile or explore the catacombs of Alexandria your first step is to pick up a copy of "Let's Go Egypt". If you go by yourself or better still treat yourself to a package tour complete with a Nile cruise you will find this volume helpful and insightful. The National Museum of Antiquities in Cairo is probably the most famous museum in the world. It has an extensive collection. "Lets Go" breaks down every room and serves as a useful guide. Egypt is a amazing destination and on every trip there I have experienced a warm welcome from the people. While bustling Cairo is what most tourists first see don't miss the smaller towns along the Nile in the "Upper Kingdom" between Aswan and Luxor. The sprawling temple of Karnak and the smaller but still impressive temple of Luxor are situated at Luxor, Egypt. The Temple of the Sun at Abu Simbel is a very short plane ride from Aswan, Egypt. At Aswan don't miss the Temple of Isis on Philae and do return some evening for the Sound and Light show. Let's Go will serve as a detailed companion to these and many other wonders. I was amazed at the level of detail and how up to date the book was. I believe Egypt is still a safe destination and found security for tourists to be a top priority. I do recommend a tour with Nile cruise especially for the first timer and even for seasoned travelers. You get a an excellent package including hotels, some meals (full board on Nile cruises), all outside cabin state-rooms, transportation, escorts that save you lots of hassle, wonderful guides that illuminate the past and usually, new friends to share it with. Following the common sense advice found in Let's Go will ensure a safe, happy and memorable trip. Have a wonderful time! Don't forget "Let Go" and bring candy for the kids!
I've been traveling in Ireland for about five months. At first I was using the Lonely Planet guidebook, but even though I got the most recent edition, the book just didn't have all the information I needed, and what information it did have was normally wrong. I grew to hate the book and adopt the name for it ``Lonely Liar.'' Then I bought the Let's Go 2003 Ireland guidebook. Since I was so used to using Lonely Planet books it took me a bit of time to understand how the Let's Go was laid out, but once I did, I began to love the book. Not only does it have tons of practical information, but unlike Lonely Planet, the information is 'spot on.' The book is also filled with great hidden deals and fun stories to read - if there was one thing i really loved about the book it was the style in which it was written. I felt as though I got to know the authors because it seemed as though their personalities shone right through. All in all, an awesome book. I've been traveling for about four years now and this is the best one I've ever bought. Two huge thumbs up.
Let's Go is a great series for guidebooks, especially for the budget traveler. This book is no exception, although the prices are a bit outdated at this point. The book covers Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, and Israel. If you're going to be travelling in that area, then I highly recommend it -- it's great to have so much information on the region on little book!
