What Readers Have to Say

“I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!!! I have purchased 3 of your books, Maui, The big Island and Oahu revealed. To find the third one I had to drive to 3 different book stores, but well worth it. You guys are the only writers/locals I will trust. You are so right on with everything!!! Usually when we would go to Hawaii we would never venture off the resort, but because of your books we would eat at the best restaurants(and save money) and visit the best beaches. I also love the fact that you give us so many insider tips, from what to wear, to the time of day to visit something or what roads to take…I only have one suggestion, can you become experts on other places?”
