What Readers Have to Say

“My fiancee and I have purchased both your Kauai and Maui books. In comparison to other travel guides (e.g., Frommers), they are much more dynamic, colourful, and most importantly, brutally honest. When planning an important trip on a budget, frank advice is difficult to attain. Scanning the internet can be mind-boggling and going with the cheapest price can often leave you feeling unsettled – have I sacrificed quality for cost? Your guides have been marvelous. I feel confident about the decisions I have made and I can visualize what my experience will be like.”
