    Good solid guide for Hawaii

This review is from: Hawaii the Big Island Trailblazer: Where to Hike, Snorkel, Surf, Bike, Drive (Paperback) We made up our itinerary on the go with our Trailblazer, always kept within reach while driving.

    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

    0 5/5 Ava L. - See all my reviews This review is from: Hawaii the Big Island Trailblazer: Where to Hike, Snorkel, Surf, Bike, Drive (Paperback) The Trailblazer pulls out all the stops. We used the previous version on past vacations and bought the new one for Christmas time there. Inside there are loads of action adventure options with spot on directions. It shrinks the Big Island into manageable bites. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 10, 2014

    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

    packed with great "must-do's"

    0 5/5 Angelia Kirkpatrick - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Big Island Brief : Quickly Master What You Need to See and Do on Hawaii's Big Island (Vacation Briefs Book 3) (Kindle Edition) We have been to Hawaii four times, two of those trips were to the Big Island. We have combed through many other travel books, but this one gets right to the point and is filled with lots of ways to enjoy the island that I didn't run across in the more lengthy travel guides I read before my other trips. I plan to try some of those new ideas on my next trip. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 16, 2014

    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

    Great Guide to Acting Local.

    0 5/5 IncaKing - See all my reviews This review is from: Moon Big Island of Hawai'i: Including Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park (Moon Handbooks) (Paperback) This book made me feel more like a resident of the Big Island, rather than just a tourist. I didn't feel like a visitor, Bree's insight into the hidden gems of the Island made me feel...kama'aina. Look it up and become kama'aina on one of the best islands in the world.

    Useful guidebook

    0 5/5 Sacramento Reader (Sacramento) - 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) (Paperback) Plenty of good info here. We went to a couple of places (including the waterfall on the cover) based solely on the book's description of them, and we were very glad we did. Moon books seem to be among the best guidebooks out there. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 20, 2013
