    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

    A must have!!

    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

    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

    Information is top notch, cheaper paper gives a downgrade

    When making a selection for a travel book, it is 95% presentation for me. I do not need to buy any books with all of the information on the internet, but when planning a special vacation, I want to be surrounded by information in a manner that adds to the ambiance of the trip preparation. The older travel books had high gloss pages and pictures that knocked your eyes out. This current version of The Big Island is the cheaper version with pages that are low gloss and pictures that seems somewhat washed out. It does nothing to add to the experience and excitement of planning that once in a lifetime vacation.On the positive side the information is excellent. By creating a separate book just for the Big Island, Fodor's has improved their selected locations and even has some day trip plans summarized. The beach descriptions are very well done and leave not much to chance. Out of the way places are now explained in greater detail, especially on the Hilo and South sides of... 4/5 Burgmicester (Pittsburgh) - See all my reviews, November 17, 2012

    About the maps and my tip on the best mac nuts on the island

    This book has lots of good maps and a little bit of everything you need to know for the Big Island. This new Foder's Big Island travel book is going with me on my 2nd trip to the big island and I'm pretty picky about which book goes in my carry on with me. This one foots the bill! It's a perfect size (5"x8") and doesn't take up much space in my bag.This book is packed full of information and really well-done full-color maps throughout the book (along with a full-sized fold-out map*). The maps in the book are very clear to follow with numbered dots that correspond to a list of the location names that are evaluated along the edge of the map. The text pages then describe each of the numbered locations in detail and orange stars for location that are Foder's Choice and black stars for locations that are highly recommended.Hotel and Resaurant prices are categorized from a single dollar sign ($) to four dollar signs ($$$$), yet no specific rates are given, so you're... 5/5 Caliaha "Caliaha" (Oregon United States) - See all my reviews, October 28, 2012

    Don't buy from this company!

    0 1/5 Eridqua (Tustin, CA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Hawaii (The Big Island) Guide Map - Waterproof Map (Map) Please don't buy from Franko's Maps anymore. The company's board of directors maliciously voted Franko out of his own company which he founded and built up starting in the 1990's. Franko's Maps continues to sell Franko's work in his name although he no longer supports or is affiliated with this company. They use his original artwork, his signature, and even his photo to wrongfully endorse their products. Franko is starting over from scratch, creating beautiful maps and fish ID cards under the name Green Planet Maps. I hope that all fans of Franko's work will support him in his new company.

    You don't need this map AND a guide book

    0 3/5 archieparchie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hawaii (The Big Island) Guide Map - Waterproof Map (Map) This map is sooo covered in text that it is almost too difficult to take it all in.I am sure it is waterproof and more durable than paper, but I thought it would be harder and covered with plastic. I guess it is all down to perceptions.If you are buying a guidebook and just looking for a relatively simple map for driving purposes, then this is not for you. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 30, 2013
