What Readers Have to Say

“First, I will tell you that I feel a little guilty having used your book EVERY DAY of our vacation and through the planning process because it is a library copy, and, at this point, we totally owe you at least the price of the book or app. We have had a fantastic Maui vacation this last week, and much of it is thanks to you… Without your guidebook, we would have been like all the other Rubes passing right on by the most memorable views and moments on the island. Thank you for your exhaustive inventory of all that is Maui, allowing us to enjoy it as if we’d had a native to guide us…. Hopefully, we get to explore some of the other islands with you in our pocket some day”
