A Personal Recommendation
To make the most of your trip to the Big Island, a guide book is
always a help. There are many guide books out there and we’ve
bought lots of them. But this one is by far the BEST! It is readable,
enjoyable and trustworthy! This is a great guide book that you will

use and enjoy!
