Purchased this book in readiness for our trip to Oahu in October. The book is well laid out, very comprehensive on all subjects relating to Oahu. Glad I bought it. Will be taking it with us for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and useful 8 May 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As with all of these Wizard guides to the Hawaiian islands, they are informative and include good maps which take the place of the fact I couldn't buy island road maps.Sections on restaurants, accommodation, activities and things to see and do, they are also written with insider knowledge. ONO recommendations and real gems help to narrow down the best if time is limited. There are no better, up to date guides on Hawaii.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great travel guide 12 April 2011
The Lonely Guide and the Rough Planet should take a good look at Oahu Revealed as this guide lets you know pretty much everything you'll need to know about the island in an informative and amusing fashion. It's just a shame that these guys don't write guides for elsewhere as I'm off to Florida this year and could do with a similar approach!

5.0 out of 5 stars very helpful guidebook 2 Jan 2011
By alf1509
I thought I would try this guidebook as it had good reviews and for a change from the usual brand of guidebooks i get. i like the fact that the text is broken up with nice pictures of the island. The reviews are honest, telling you when some staff have been quite rude, where theft is a problem in certain car parks etc. Good reviews of the hotels, restraunts and beaches. Lots of information on hikes around the island and activities. I would recomend this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dining recommendations for Cheesecake Factory and Dave & Buster's when you're in Oahu? No thanks. 22 Jan 2013
By lan811 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my upcoming trip to Oahu. Having purchased Maui Revealed a few years ago, I should have realized what a mistake I was making. I looked at the reviews and thought to myself, "Well, maybe this version is better."

Note on format: I prefer Frommers and Lonely Planet guidebooks. A lot of people who travel to Oahu are there for a limited amount of time. Both LP and Frommers have a section that outlines what you should see and do if you have 2 days, a week or more. This book doesn't offer that guidance. There are definitely more pictures in this book, which is a plus, but there's something disorganized about this book. For example, what is the difference between "Sights" and "Attractions"? Why is the "Attractions" section not listed by geographic zones like in the "Sights" section? What is the difference between "Activities" and "Adventures"? The organization of the book is just very confusing. So, if you hate Frommers and Lonely Planet, then you may not like my review.

My biggest complaint about this book is the Dining section. The author notes certain restaurants that "stand out" with a little "ono" symbol. In addition to an "ono" designation, the author highly recommends the Cheesecake Factory. I am not a food snob, and I have nothing against the Cheesecake Factory. I like the Cheesecake Factory, but when I go to Oahu, I don't want to go to the Cheesecake Factory. The entry for the Cheesecake Factory is longer than the entry for Alan Wong's. That just doesn't seem right to me. There is also an "ono' recommendation for Dave & Buster's. If you understand my disappointment at these recommendations, then you will understand my suspicion for other recommendations in this book. If you know what a Cheesecake Factory or Dave & Buster's is and you would go to such places when vacationing in Oahu, then you should ignore this review.

The Dining section would have been really helpful if it had a section that said, "These are the restaurants you definitely need to hit on your trip from high end to low end."

After reading through the Dining section, I feel like I need to get a second opinion on everything else recommended in the book. So, it will be useful for the contact information, but I don't trust this author for anything else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rick Steves of Hawaii 19 May 2011
By Maralyn Reid - Published on Amazon.com
This book was available to us where we stayed. We thought it was fabulous. We enjoyed the commentary and history that went along with the places to visit. Because of this book, we were able to see some very out-of-the way places where we were the only tourists. It truly made our Hawaiian vacation more enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book! 15 Aug 2011
By Mrs. Ashley H. Wyatt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have lived in Oahu for a year and a half and there are things on this island that are very popular to visit. I found 6 things in the first 70 pages that I had no idea about! That doesn't sound like a lot but the book is over 300 pages including the index. Not only does it tell you about all the popular places but throughout the book it has little gems notating the especially awesome less know attractions. I have tons of stuff planned now and I'm very happy that I got this book. Must have if you are visiting or even if you have been on island for a little while.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Star Guide 18 Jan 2011
By D. Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
We recently moved to Oahu and I love this book. I am so happy that we purchased it. Everywhere I go I am saying my book says this or my book says that. I picked this particular one out of all the travel guide books because I enjoy the history background it gives. The other books had more tourist information, but since we are living on Oahu I wanted more history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource 4 Jun 2010
By E. Hoff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is easy to read, very informative, and candid. There's even a little humor sprinkled throughout. I feel like it's prepared me very well to make the most of my time on Oahu. The only drawback, is that the book is a bit heavy and bulky to lug to Hawaii, but it wouldn't be useful if it was any smaller.
