    A Functional Travel Guide

    0 4/5 Aaron - See all my reviews This review is from: Fodor's Big Island of Hawaii (Full-color Travel Guide) (Paperback) I enjoyed reading this book.I found it to be informative, comprehensive, and easy to read, with a nice assortment of useful (and beautiful) pictures throughout. In addition to the extensive business and travel listings expected of such a guide, the book also contains a comfortable amount of general facts, historical context, and geographical tidbits about the Island, as well as an educational overview of Hawai'i itself. After reading it, I felt to be not only informed about how to travel the Big Island, but about a wide assortment of topics relevant to the area and its peoples. In a nut, I learned a thing or two.My thanks goes out to this book's authors, subjects, and publisher. I am grateful for your work. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 10, 2015

    A comprehensive guide to The Big Island

    0 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 21, 2015

    0 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 1, 2014

    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?)

    A Mediocre Complement to be Used with Other Travel Resources BEFORE Flying to the Big Island

    Disappointing guidebook, covers well-known sites on the Big Island, doesn't go off-the-beaten path as the name "Trailblazer" implies. Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens, Liliuokalani Gardens, Pu'ukohola Heiau, and Pu'uhonua o Honaunau are presented as hikes, when they're really just a stroll through famous gardens or historic parks. Meandering the grounds of the Mauna Kea Hotel is described as a 0.75 mile hike, while actually summiting the real volcano, Mauna Kea, is barely mentioned -- they don't even give the name of the trail (Humu'ula Trail) or it's length, elevation gain, starting point, or how to register. Similarly, the Muliwai Trail to Waimanu Valley is mentioned, but anyone interested in it needs to do research elsewhere just to get started.The organization is very confusing. The Big Island is divided up into six chapters. One, called Mauna Kea, mostly covers the Hamakua Coast. Another, called Mauna Loa, strangely includes South Point: a 120 mile... 3/5 Steven K (Meredith, NH) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
