Lonely Planet has a reputation for quality travel books. We expect to learn things that require more than superficial effort. However, the Egypt book lacks any depth. There is no mention of Cheops, Chephren, and Mycerinus, the Kings who built the Giza pyramids. The book mentions several hotels in Sohag, but tell us that none is really decent. I stayed in El Safa, a large hotel on the Nile, which they do not mention. I found it clean and quite pleasant, rooms have 'memory foam' mattresses, which I personally find very uncomfortable, but they are 'in.' The Tourist Police are heavy-handed in Sohag, but they have good intentions. No one tells, but the Valley of the Kings ticket is good for only three tombs. It is worthwhile to buy several, however, Tut's tomb is extra and a big disapointment, nothing but a hole with a gold sarcophage. See his things in the Cairo Egyptian Museum.
