    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 In any guidebook there are obviously things that are out of date, and that's especially true in a guide this compendious.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?)

    (4.7/5)
    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. This book, along with the others in their "Your Ideal..." series is a valuable tool, easy to... 5/5 hammock at honl's - See all my reviews This review is from: Your Ideal Hawaii Island Vacation: A Guide for Visiting the Big Island of Hawaii (Paperback) The Big Island is not like the other islands in the Hawaiian Chain.

    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

    The Real Deal on Sights and Sites

    WHAT THE BOOK IS ABOUT: Seeking a guidebook which covers all the districts of the Big Island, combines gotta-see highlights with intriguing out-of-the-way places, history and lore, and is appropriate for visitors who are active but not ready to climb Everest or do the Ironman? One focusing not on eating, sleeping, and shopping but on interesting places & events? This is it!The Merciers offer ten chapters including Kona (60 pages), Kohala (15 pages), Hilo (40 pages), Volcanoes National Park (13 pages), Kau (16 pages), Puna (15 pages), North Kohala (16 pages) and Waimea (8 pages). Each chapter has visitor-useful maps with landmarks where the signage for turns is obscure and, a big plus, details on events and festivals throughout the year for each location.For myself, I want a guide book packed with ideas, stories, information, and unusual as well as usual places. Where to drink, shop, party-hearty, and sleep are for me less urgent in book form.

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.
