About this book

This new title from avid traveller Tim Tranchilla marks the launch of an innovative-format guide designed to deliver in-destination, you-focused experiences. Israel, Jordan, Palestine and the Egyptian Sinai are covered, with a unique system ranking sights and presenting them in multiple formats according to interest and region, to help you plan a trip in the sort of detail that might normally be left to a travel agent – at a fraction of the cost.
Around 100 unique and interesting itineraries are included, along with a new itinerary-planning tool – The Itinerator – to help you create more from scratch. There are also more than two dozen walking tours, with information on stops, maps and suggested routes. Sights are categorised into a range of 15 themes, helping you to identify easily those of most interest, and extensive information on local food, wine, beaches, bars and shopping is also included.
With lots of pre-departure planning tips, localized driving and city tours and thoroughly researched information on what to eat and drink, where to shop and go out, how to navigate the many beaches, and where to get off the beaten track, this unique guide is crafted with all the attention needed to help you have the trip of a lifetime.
