The books mentioned above are all good I'm a huge fan of the Rough Guide however since they cover Egypt in its entirety they can't quite be classed as pocket guides, and I don't think they are quite what Sreeve is really looking for. For something more compact and specific, I highly recommend a series of pocket guides written by Alberto Siliotti, an Italian journalist who specializes in Egypt.
- Sydney Renovations Builders Essential Guide!
- Tips and Tricks for iMovie: The How-To Guide!
- St George: Knight, Martyr, Patron Saint and Dragonslayer (Pocket Essential series).
He has written a whole slew of books on Egypt's best known sites and monuments, but his piece de resistance in my opinion is his excellent series of pocket guides. These are slim, compact, full colour glossy booklets of between 40 and 50 pages, yet containing all the essential info you need on the subject matter, including scads of excellent photos, 3D plans, schematics, etc.
I have the whole series, 9 in all, and use them all the time when touring. The series comprises the following titles and subjects:. Sreeve, you'll find those last two will meet your needs perfectly, as between them they cover all the major east bank and west bank sites.
See: aucpress. They are available from many outlets here in Egypt, e. I've even found them in certain supermarkets!

See: amazon. I'm with Karen on this - her suggestion is better than mine! At Amazon's price it could work out a bit dear to get the Luxor set, but they are in the Aboudi bookshop near the New Winter Palace, for around the list price. I agree with the previous posters - the Silliotti books are excellent. I saw them on sale in quite a few places in Egypt but Aboudy has everything!
It also sells the Kent Weeks book which is brilliant but it's quite heavy glossy paper and not one I'd take to carry around with me. It's good for pre-holiday reading or to leave in the hotel room and read in the evenings.
Piran In Your Pocket city guide
The Egypt guide has a large section on Luxor and if you are planning to tour the temples and tombs you'll find it's like having a personal guide with you, with maps and plans that are well-labelled to help you make sense of what you see. Lonely Planet is similar in this respect. Guide books are very personal. It might be worth you browsing in a bookshop that sells a variety of guidebooks and seeing what you like the look of. Although they do deal with the whole of Egypt , their Luxor sections are quite substantial and in any case visitors to Luxor often go to Cairo , Aswan etc, so the other sections could come in handy.
I think the Siliotti set is great, but each one sticks quite closely to its subject. The temples one includes an out of date section on Luxor museum but neither of the Siliotti Luxor guides deal with lots of things that are in the Rough Guide, Lonely Planet or DK books. Just buying the two Siliotti guides would leave quite a lot uncovered. Skip to main content Giles Morgan.
