Editorial Reviews

Review

“Wizard continues to produce information, maps and photographs that are all first-rate, and—even better!” Honolulu Star Bulletin

Book Description

Most travel titles are put together in a few weeks by visiting travel writers. Wizard guidebooks take over a year to compile and the writers are residents who personally and anonymously review every facet of the island. Their maps are the best you'll find. From restaurants to helicopter companies to scuba to beaches to trails. They see it all and show you the best the island has to offer. They also reveal who's the worst and who to stay away from. All told in a frank, humorous way that keeps the reading fun.

We purchased this book because we were quite pleased with the Kauai and Maui books, but weren't as impressed with this book. This may be because our Oahu trip was our first to Hawaii with children, and these books aren't especially tailored to a family vacation. More descriptions of family-friendly events, more restaurant and hotel reviews and less really-off-the-beaten-path sites would have been preferred for our family vacation. However, if you are looking for a book that tells you more about the hidden Oahu, this is probably for you. As with the other books, the author is candid and fair.

I took several travel guides to Oahu but this is the one we kept coming back to. We went to Oahu with another family and they kept borrowing the book because they liked it better than the guidebooks they brought. I agreed with most of the evaluations and the maps included with the book were very useful. I purchased the prior edition used and it was worth every cent. I would use this series of guide books for other areas we plan to visit if available.

I read this book cover to cover. It is so informative and entertaining. The author is obviously familiar with Oahu. I have lived here for six months and through this book I have learned of so many places that I had never even heard of. I love that the book is funny...I didn't expect that. If you are coming to Oahu I recommend you buy this book...sit down with a paper and pen and read the book. Write down the names of all the places that interest you and the page you found it on and you are all set!! Aloha!

My husband and I bought this book to help us plan a short trip to Oahu and we're so glad we did. The author's reviews are candid and often funny, making this informative and easy to read at the same time. It helped us plan meals, day trips, and transportation -- it also helped us budget our money well. The only thing we felt this book was missing was a more detailed street map that we could remove from the book and take with us when we went out (so we didn't have to tote around the entire book)...that's the only thing that kept me from giving a 5-star rating.

Overall, I highly recommend this book for those who haven't traveled to Oahu and want details on must-dos for tourists (and also want tips on some local gems).

In preparation to our first trip and one month visit to Waikiki I have basically purchased all Travel Guides on the market.......If I'd had known about Oahu Revealed initially than I wouldn't have wasted my money on the other guides.......very well written and covers everything you need to know....also the Editor is entertaining and funny and the maps and pictures are first rate

I love to travel, but had never visited any of the islands of our 50th state....that is, until last summer. A friend and I decided one crummy Wisconsin winter day to plan a trip to Oahu. Our objective was to experience it more like locals than tourists, though we did do some of the touristy things. For those touristy things we did choose to do, this guide was invaluable in helping us make our best choices, both in venue and in approach to places such as Diamond Head or Pearl Harbor. Detailed information about best times to visit are really helpful in maximizing your time. What to bring and pack lists were helpful, even for the somewhat seasoned traveler.

As budget conscious travelers, the ratings based on cost were really helpful as well. The guide does assume that you'll be staying at Waikiki, which we did not, but still gave fair coverage and reviews of places outside that small part of the island, which is where we spent most of our time. For those trying to make lodging choices, the aerial photos that show the hotels in site would be helpful. If a hotel says "beach view," you can get an idea of just what that actually means by studying these photos.

The reviews and descriptions of the beaches were really nice and helped locate some hidden gems along our way. Also helpful for us were the descriptions of hiking trails, letting us know how much time we might need and the conditions we might encounter on those trails. Honest reviews of the best place to rent kayaks and where to paddle were also key to an enjoyable adventure. The photos included were great inspiration for our own photo adventures, and I appreciated that they were done by the author, not a paid professional photographer.

Format: Paperback
I bought three guide books to take with us on our 12 day trip to Oahu. My husband was home from Iraq and we were ready to see as much as we could. I read all the books before we left, but found this one an easier read, well organized, and full of useful tips. For the most part we found every review pretty much on the money. The off the beaten path type hikes was just what we were looking for. I wish they had included more on Koko Crater, because that was a great hike! Because of the way the book was organized by areas, we were able to travel and stop along the way at each thing mentioned in the book. It was nice having a pretty large selection of reviewed restaurants to choose from and my husband kept asking "What would Andrew do?" throughout the trip as I directed us to our next adventure. I wish he had books out for all the other trips we have planned!
