    This book is all you'll need

    We bought this book based on it's good reviews on Amazon. I read it practically cover-to-cover before we left on our trip which I highly recommend doing. There is SO MUCH information here, from the hiking descriptions we were looking for to snorkeling and surfing info (snorkeling: next visit!) to getting around (drive times: longer than you'd expect unless you read them here first), a glossary (where the language came from, what common words mean and how to pronounce them) and even some history, which we don't usually find too interesting but here, it was.We're the type that likes to be prepared when we go somewhere new, finding Big Island info online was overwhelming - where to start and what to believe? After reading this one book, we felt prepared. After visiting and finding our way around the whole island with ease, we felt this book was worth it's weight in Macadamia Nuts.Recommendation: Buy it and if you can't read the whole thing at least browse it before you go so... 5/5 Mrs. Magpie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Best maps

    0 5/5 aloha "Leilani" (Aurora, IL) - See all my reviews This review is from: Map of Hawaii: The Big Island (Map) All of the James Bier maps are the best of every island. Don't waste your money on others and don't try to find off the beaten path places with rental car maps. These maps show the locacations and name of every waterfall and the date of every lava flow. A must for those interested in the real Hawaii. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 16, 2011

    Best maps for Hawaii

    0 5/5 Hawaii guy (Big Island) - See all my reviews This review is from: Map of Hawaii: The Big Island (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

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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
