    For Dummies

    The best travel book I've read so far!

    Normally, I try to avoid these "Dummies" guides, as I'm just the slightest bit offended by the idea that I'm a "dummy" just because I don't know EVERYTHING. But after flipping through books at the local bookstore looking for a good guidebook for my honeymoon trip to Oahu and Kauai next October, I finally decided on this one. It's got great maps, for one thing, as well as extensive lists of hotels, places to eat, and things to do. Because the descriptions are full of personal anecdotes, I really trust that Leas has seen and done it all herself and she's being straight with me about what she thinks -- traditional travel guides always make me nervous because they're written in the third person. If I'm going to spend ... on a vacation, I really want to know what things I should do and what things I shouldn't! Possibly the greatest feature, though, is the fact that at least 75% of the entries for places and activities have web site URLs.

    A Very Good General Reference

    "Hawaii For Dummies" is a good general reference, especially for first time visitors to Hawaii. I visit Hawaii on business about four times a month, and have found the information in this guide to be generally quite accurate. In any guidebook there are obviously things that are out of date, and that's especially true in a guide this compendious. Most of the inaccuracies are prices that have increased, though in my personal experiences none of the increases I have seen has been ridiculously out of line with inflation. I find that the diagrams are good for general planning, but a dedicated map of the island you are visiting is necessary for navigation.The book has several useful features including the Post-It flags to mark pages of interest (a very useful feature) and a "Quick Concierge" section in the Appendix which is a quick reference to important phone numbers and Internet addresses. The book discusses customs, weather, selecting things to see, and choosing an island. I... 4/5 Robert I. Hedges - See all my reviews, December 22, 2006

    The best travel book I've ever owned

    I have traveled a lot, and own a lot of travel books, but have never felt compelled to write a review of one-- until now.Three years ago, while planning our two-week honeymoon to Maui and Kauai, I bought a LOT of Hawaii books. In the planning stage, I kept finding myself returning to this book. Unlike Fodors and Frommers, the author actually makes JUDGMENTS about places and activities and tells you what the BEST of each category are. Imagine that-- rather than just providing a rote listing of the hotels on an island with a short description (and maybe a star or two), the author actually tells you which hotels to go to if you want serious romance, which are best for families, and which rooms to request (or not). Rather than listing activities, the author actually tells you which are the safest and most reliable helicopter companies, which are the best companies to to take for a private, romantic and uncrowded sailing trip. There are "heart" symbols to denote the most... 5/5 BostonMama (Boston, MA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Your Ideal Hawaii Island Vacation: A Guide for Visiting the Big Island of Hawaii

    Book (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform)

    Rating (12 reviews):
    (4.9/5)
    CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform

    The Big Island is a BIG Island

    The Big Island is not like the other islands in the Hawaiian Chain. A traveller can get a pretty good overview of the other islands with a one-day driving trip but the Big Island is much too large and too diverse to attempt in one day. This book breaks the Island sightseeing down into areas that can each be reasonably explored in one day. If you arrive by cruise ship there are walking tours for each of the cruise ship arrival points. If you are renting a car there are driving tours efficiently laid out to maximize your touring time. Along with the tours there are short historical notes that coincide with the sites and give much depth to the significance of the locations. Chris and Tyler seem to have thoroughly researched and personally visited the locations that they describe and in this book they assess the ease of access to each site for those with limited time or mobility issues.

    The best guidebook for the Big Island

    0 5/5 Elizabeth Cooper - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Your Ideal Hawaii Island Vacation: A Guide for Visiting the Big Island of Hawaii (Paperback) This book is the most user friendly guidebook I have experienced. It is an easy read that takes you to points of interest that are accessible, yet not overly crowded. The tidbits of history, lore and narrative draw you into the experiences transforming you into an active participant rather than a mere observer. A "must read" for the traveler to the Big Island! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 17, 2014

    This book is so Helpful!

    0 5/5 Robert Puschinsky (Seabrook, TX USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Your Ideal Hawaii Island Vacation: A Guide for Visiting the Big Island of Hawaii (Paperback) The authors of this book have my congratulations and gratitude. We, Big Islanders, have needed and desired a book to help us show our Hawaii Island to visiting mainlanders. We have reached a point where we insist visitors rent a car and explore on their own. This book is wonderful at focusing on day trips. It has brief historical information about each site and even the internet site if more knowlege is desired. The book has easy to understand directions and even photos. If a person wants to see a specific site, the index is great. Recent guests went to "Place of Refuge". We advised them to look up "ST.Benedict's Painted Church". The index took them to page 50 -51. They learned the history , when it was built, where it is located, complete with it's physical address. This helpful , well written and well organized book is very user friendly. Both Hawaii residents and visitors will find it useful and informative. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 23, 2014

    Go To Definitive Guide to the Big Island

    I have read most of the Visitors' Guides to the Big Island. This is by far my favorite. It is an extraordinarily rich with detail but still easily read and understood description of our island providing insight to visitors and a deeper appreciation of this sacred place for those of us lucky enough to live here.I have read it through from the first page to the last and enjoyed it all, stopping only to share a discovery of a fact I did not know with my spouse. This is one of the few books I have read where I felt compelled to read passages out loud in sharing some sweet tidbit of history or cultural context.I will provide this book to our frequent guests because it will make their visit to the Big Island so much more meaningful. They can carry it with them as they go from place to place, using it as an easy reference.Sam Cudney has a straight forward writing style.
