What Readers Have to Say

“Your books are the best. We visited Kauai & the Big Island and had a wonderful time. The restaurant guide was right on and we tried many of the local places that we would have missed (Lihue BBQ Inn was delicous). The “Sights” sections were great too as helped us break down the islands into easy days.

Thanks again for publishing such wonderful books.”
