  • Exact prices listed for every establishment and activity--no other guides offer such detailed, candid reviews of hotels and restaurants. We include the very best, but also emphasize moderately priced choices for real people.

Review: Frommer's Maui 2013 (Frommer's Color Complete)

User Review  - Juliana - Goodreads

Although I could have got by with just my Waze app, Trip Advisor and a few others-- it was still comforting to have my printed Frommers along for the ride. I referenced it a number of times to verify a few things and at one point needed to use the included map when Waze failed me. Read full review
