What Readers Have to Say

“I have to write this email to you to tell you how absolutely greatful we are for your Ultimate Kauai Guidebook. It completely made our vacation!! I purchased the book in early August after we had booked an eight-day stay on the island and had read it cover to cover before departing for our trip. Throughout our time on the island, I kept the book with me, and not too long into the trip, referred to it as if it were our Bible. I don’t even know where to begin…it was all so helpful. Restauraunt reviews were accurate and reliable… The beaches….being a maniacal beach-bum myself, I was most impressed and pleased with the information that we had regarding beaches… And the hiking!!!! Great views, as you know and great directions… I could go on and on and have so much to be thankful to you for. Your wisdom and knowledge is invaluable and made our vacation in Kauai most memorable, and as we have often referred to it, “the best vacation ever!!!”
