Item description for Cairo: The Family Guide, New Revised Edition by Lesley Lababidi & Lisa Sabbahy...

Although there is a wealth of guidebooks to Cairo, this is the first to specifically target the needs of families with children. Cairo: The Family Guide provides all families living in Cairo-expatriate and Egyptian alike-with the resources and information needed to explore the city to the fullest. Organized by geographic area, each section begins with an overview of the area's history and residents. Then the authors take us on a detailed journey to the special treasures of each Cairo
neighborhood, with photographs, line drawings, maps that pinpoint sites of interest, and plans of museums and other places of importance in the area. Each section also includes practical advice on how to get to each location, what to take on visits, opening hours, and much more.
And, as many people know, an enjoyable afternoon means something entirely different to a sixyear-old than to a thirteen-year-old: to this end, suggestions are age-sensitive, and a variety of activities are proposed. Also included are a detailed historical timeline and a recommended
reading list to help children and teens get in the mood for a Cairene adventure.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cairo: The Family Guide, New Revised Edition?

A Must buy for the serious tourist to Cairo !  Sep 18, 2007
The current issue of the Cairo Family Guide is the 4th edition (the first edition was in 2001). It has been revised each time to update the data and make it more current & relevant.

Its one book any person planning to check out the sights of Cairo on their own, or living here for more than a week should most certainly pick up.

The book is categorised location wise and then each place worth a visit in that area is listed out with complete details.

For eg. there are 3 different itineraries for the Egyptian museum depending on a person's interest. It also helps split the museum into manageable trips so as to be able to absorb maximum information.

Special attention has been given to understanding and recommending activities based on a child's age and interests. So the book is especially handy for those visiting with kids.

Maps to the areas, the closest Metro stop, the timings (including changed timings for Ramadan), Entrance fees (for foreigners, residents, students & Egyptians - yes there are multiple rates), Photography and video fees if any, (or whether they are allowed at all), the telephone numbers to that location, facilities available (bathrooms, gift shops, cafeterias) the best place to park (this is a major issue in Cairo), relevant websites if any, activities organised at that location if any, how much to tip and whom. These are just some of the gems of information that she shares about each and every location.

This is a goldmine of information especially given the monumental difficulty of gathering such data in Cairo. This is one of our few books where the book has completely lost its crispness (I don't even like the spine cracking in my books)

The only drawback is that since this is a 2006 edition some of the data has become obsolete especially with the recent adding of a digit to all land-line numbers at some of the telephone exchanges. Some sites have revised their charges (upwards of course) But the changes would hardly be in 5% of the data in this book.

So go ahead and pick up your own copy today. At 70LE it's a steal!
