Our dream honeymoon to Oahu was made perfect thanks to this guide that we researched way before saying "I do". With it we customized our two week itinerary, fun things to do around every corner. It made it so easy to drive around and see all the famous sights. We chalked up many extraordinary hikes and liked the way the book incorporated the island's history and pointed the way to offbeat jewels. We were surprised to find beaches that were better than Waikiki: more sand, less people. This guide is way better than the standard guides mainly because it is organized according to where you are on a given day. If we were in a town we knew where to go snorkeling, which trailheads were nearby and what was interesting to see. To sum it up: it's fantastic and worth buying especially if it's your first visit.
