"This was a total waste of money! Please don't be fooled about this being a good Hawaiian DVD! This was filmed by someone with only amateur filming experience. The music is repeated, the camera is shaky, and the subjects are boring! This is nothing more than a family trip put on a DVD with a fancy cover. It was painful to watch. Would make a great gag gift if you want to blow twenty bucks!"

"While the one review states that 'A Trip to Hawaii's Big Island' is nothing more than a family vacation put to video with repeating music, I must say I enjoyed it. I found it to be refreshing knowing that I was viewing a time of relaxation and enjoyment with the Thompson family and their trip to the big island. It is so easy to get sucked into promotional videos and tourist type activities only meant to make money for the tourist businesses. Being from Colorado and being snowed in for the fourth straight week of frigid cold, I found this video making me desire a trip to Hawaii."

"This documentary provided excellent footage of the big island of Hawaii. It really gives the viewer a sense of being on location in Hawaii. The scenery was breathtaking. The music was set perfectly to the movement of the video. A must-see for anyone wishing to visit Hawaii."
