Before planning my trip to Oahu, I figured all I needed to do was just look up a bunch of stuff on the internet and I could determine what the best, fastest, cheapest most efficient way to spend my time. I was wrong. The number of opinions, the astro-turfing by companies themselves, the advertising everywhere you go, it quickly became overwhelming.

I got this book from my local library, along with 2 others (including the Frommer version) and it took about 2 minutes to figure this book was the best and returned the other 2. There are NO advertisements for companies in here, only at the very it has a single page of ads for the other Wizard pub Hawaii books. He gives a frank opinion of all the major sites, and less major sites the island has to offer. Thanks to this book you can safely skip the garbage tourist traps and find some cheap (even free) hidden gems like some fantastic hikes. There are even sites that are completely unadvertised on the island that are almost devoid of tourists. These include a drive to the best view of the island, a beach which almost always has sun bathing sea turtles, and an amazing coastal location with layered volcanic rock being pounded on by the Pacific.

He'll also cover all the possible activities you might want to do including the best and cheapest way to get it with reviews of the major companies that offer them. This includes surfing, Scuba, chopper rides, tons of hikes, horseback riding, etc.

There's also a lengthy section on the best places to eat and for the cheapest price with frank reviews of them all. There was only one restaurant we found subpar based on the review that we were sold. This, plus our ENTERTAINMENT coupon book, and we were able to eat well for cheap on the island.

I went through 3 other Oahu books trying to figure out the best way to plan my trip. The only book of real value was this one. This is the best Oahu book you will find. Stop reading this and buy it - trust me.

We went to Oahu in October, and this was a fantastic resource. We highly recommend it, no hype or nonsense, just excellent information. We will be going to Maui next, and intend to get the book this author has written for that island as well.
