    When a good guide book becomes too successful

    0 4/5 HeatherR - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hawaii The Big Island Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook (Paperback) The book is a wonderfully written guide to exploring the ins and outs of the Big Island. I used it in 2007, 2008 and most recently the new edition in 2014. I gave it four stars instead of five simply because I have seen the impact that revealing the local secrets has had on some of the ecosystems. For example, while there were destructive 4-wheel drive paths all over landscape from South Point to the olivine sand beach in 2007, there were very few people on those paths and at the beach. In 2014 the place was packed. Few people were walking to the beach (it's not THAT far or rigorous for that matter) and many were paying locals to take them to and from the olivine beach. What was once a tranquil place, a reward for walking to it, was more like a mini-resort. The walk was no longer lovely because you were watching out for smelly vehicles. Shouldn't some things be explored on foot? There are enough attractions to which one can drive. Perhaps some places should be left for locals to enjoy. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 15, 2014

    0 5/5 STEPHANIE B. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hawaii The Big Island Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook (Paperback) My husband and I traveled to the Big Island at the end of January 2014. It was our second trip to the island so even though we were familiar with it, this book was a huge help in finding what to do, where to dine, and directions on how to get there. A must have if you are traveling to the Big Island! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 9, 2014

    Great book!! Check out the app for iPhone and Android first though.

    0 5/5 Matt Clark - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hawaii The Big Island Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook (Kindle Edition) The book is about as good as guide books get. Personally I used the Kindle version of the book on my iPad and then downloaded the app to my phone for $7-8, which we used constantly on the road. I would say you could easily get away with JUST THE APP, but the book has far more info. I would also say, spring for the app whether you buy the book or not because it has GPS maps whether you have an internet connection or not and we constantly needed to look at exactly where we were when trying to find remote beaches and such. Seriously, buy the freaking app. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 12, 2014

    Title says it

    0 4/5 penorman - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hawaii the Big Island Trailblazer: Where to Hike, Snorkel, Surf, Bike, Drive (Paperback) A great resource for planning outdoor activities. Not for finding restaurants and lodging -- that's not mainly what it's about. One drawback is that it has very limited maps, so you have to try to figure out exactly where things are from the text mostly. But I have all the other guides and this is probably the best for outdoor stuff. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 21, 2014

    A trusty companion

    0 4/5 NoVAReader (Northern Virginia, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Lonely Planet Discover Hawaii the Big Island (Travel Guide) (Kindle Edition) We used this travel guide every day during our trip to the Big Island. It proved to be an indispensable companion. The tips on everything from sights to restaurants were extremely helpful. We visited several "off the beaten path" gems thanks to this book. The only downside of the book is that it is organized by region. At times this made it a little difficult to search the book while on the road. We used the Kindle edition, so it may be a little easier to use in paperback. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 9, 2012

    Great tips

    0 5/5 SouthTexasEvo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Lonely Planet Discover Hawaii the Big Island (Travel Guide) (Paperback) I've gone through the entire book and have found it to be a valuable resource for activities and hotels. I plan on using it for tips on food when we actually take our trip in January but it directed me to some resources that I wasn't even aware of for accomodations and the accomodations we've booked look to be better and cheaper than the hotels in the areas.We are going with a 2 year old and because of that it eliminates a lot of activities, I found the book was very useful in identifying some additional activities that we could do with young children. I'm looking forward to our trip and will be using this book as a guide throughout the entire time. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 9, 2011

    Always Spot-on with recommendations, but poorly organized

    The plusses:Just about every place that this book recommended, and that I've tried, has been spot on. Perhaps more importantly, it's also spot-on with respect to its recommendations of tour companies (e.g. snorkeling tours, van tours). Not one restaurant, attraction, tour company, or hotel recommended by this book has disappointed, and it recommends a lot -- you could spend a month on the Big Island and not go through half of what's in this book. For the most part, the maps are clear and helpful, and the book gives contact information as needed.The minuses:The information presented is very poorly organized. Largely speaking, this book breaks down into Sights, Activities, Adventures, and Dining/Lodging, and within each section, the listings are broken by geographic region. The problem with this approach is that, in order to see everything there is to do within a particular geographic area, you have to flip to each section. It would be far more convenient... 4/5 V.

    The best travel books

    0 5/5 mlj - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hawaii The Big Island Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook (Paperback) My husband and I travel a lot and have looked at and used many types of travel guidebooks. We have found the 'Revealed' guidebooks to be, without a doubt, the best. The authors/editors don't ever hold back when they feel that a hotel, restuarant or attraction doesn't live up to its reputation or is over-priced. You can count on these guidebooks for the truth, not just a glowing report that someone has paid to have printed in a guidebook. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 1, 2011

    Great resource for exploring the Big Island

    0 4/5 NC Family - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hawaii The Big Island Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook (Paperback) We just used this book to help us navigate the Big Island for a family vacation. The maps were fantastic and the descriptions very helpful. Hawaii tries to hide it's national treasures and signage is almost invisible. This book gave mile marker references and visual landmarks to help you find where you needed to go. The amount of information was a bit overwhelming, but it was great to keep in the car for quick reference as you were trying to decide what to do next. We found the information to be extremely accurate except for restaurant suggestions - some were correct, but rely on your hotel concierge first. We would highly recommend this book if this is your first trip to the Big Island or you are adults traveling alone and a bit more on the adventurous side (lots of hiking and rough terrain not suitable for little legs). 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 15, 2011

    Big Island planning guide

    0 4/5 Bill Potts - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Moon Big Island of Hawai'i: Including Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park (Moon Handbooks) (Kindle Edition) The Moon guide is a good resource for planning a trip to the big island. I ordered it for my Kindle so that I could have it available on our upcoming trip. In the past I've always taken the book itself on trips and found them too heavy to deal with. Unfortunately, going back and forth on the Kindle in the planning stage is somewhat frustrating. I found that I used the Big Island pages of a Hawaii guide more than the Kindle even though the Moon guide was probably a much better guide. I think the Kindle edition will be very useful though, once we get to the Big Island. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 3, 2012

    Best maps for Hawaii

    0 5/5 Hawaii guy (Big Island) - See all my reviews This review is from: Reference Maps of the Islands of Hawai'i (Map) The James Bier maps of the Hawaii Islands are the best reference for your travels. We've been using these maps for getting around the islands for over 20 years. The detailed geographic information and relief shading to show land details and lava flows are great. The close-up maps of developed areas and special features such as Hawaii Volcano National park cover just about everything you'll need.The only other map we use is the book (Ready Map Book of East (or West) Hawaii) of street maps that helps us find specific streets in the various subdivisions. We only need that on rare occasions. Usually the James Bier map is enough. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 8, 2012
