    One word - useless

    1/5 Mstar - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fodor's Big Island of Hawaii (Full-color Travel Guide) (Paperback) I hated this book once I was on our Big Island vacation. It is worthless and got us actually lost multiple times. It has not been updated for any road changes, such as the changes to Saddle Road completed in 2013. Therefore the mile marker directions were off. Overall the maps included in the book were worthless. The organization of the book makes it so difficult to use. I consistently had to be flipping between sections when visiting one area of the island because top highlights, beaches, shops, food, etc. are all separated than organized by location by rather than location first. The food section recommendations were terrible and price ranges for those recommendation were incorrect. I hated this book so much I tossed it half way through our trip. Even our tour guide recommended the Hawaii Big Island Revealed and recommended just downloading the app. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 23, 2016

    A comprehensive guide to The Big Island

    4/5 Barbara W. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fodor's Big Island of Hawaii (Full-color Travel Guide) (Paperback) Has everything I need to find out about travel to The Big Island. I bought another guide first but it contained lots of opinions and essays about specific locales, when I really just wanted the facts, which Fodor's clearly provides. I like that this guide doesn't just refer you to another source...you can take this along and be reasonably informed without having to use your smartphone or computer. The only thing I didn't find helpful was the sections on Hawaii in general. I wasn't interested in reading about other islands since I purchased a book about the island of Hawaii specifically.

    Buy another book for your BI adventure

    2/5 Tania D. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fodor's Big Island of Hawaii (Full-color Travel Guide) (Paperback) Lacks detail and doesn't have a lot of useful information. Most pages were similar to or the same as information in other Fodor's Hawaii guide books (eg. Oahu edition - which I also bough) so, if you're going to multiple islands, skip this book. It was actually very frustrating to use. I wish I had bought the blue 'revealed' series of books instead.

    Total waste of money!

    1/5 Karen Andreasen - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Best Easy Day Hikes Hawaii: The Big Island (Best Easy Day Hikes Series) (Paperback) Never been this disappointed before. Normally I love the Falcon guides, so I just ordered it without looking inside - biggest mistake ever. I love hiking, but this book was a waste of money, longest "hike" is 2.2 miles - you really call that a hike? Luckily I stayed with a family at the Big Island, and they knew where to do some real hikes. Though hiking is not really what people do the most, on the Big Island, neither the locals or the tourist, there are still a ton of beautiful hikes to do. Both full day, and overnight. It's truly a shame those hikes are not included. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 25, 2016
