Description

Just Like Having A Tour Guide In Your Car™ for all of Maui, Hawaii. GyPSy Guide GPS driving tour of Maui is an excellent way to explore the entire island. There are 450+ audio points that play automatically, featuring what to see, stories, tips and advice. All the benefits of a guided tour, the freedom to drive yourself. TOUR GUIDE AS YOU DRIVE AROUND MAUI If you like driving yourself when you go sightseeing, GyPSy Guide™ tour apps allow you to enjoy a guided tour experience to places like the Road to Hana, while remaining totally independent. By driving yourself, you'll be able to get from place to place faster, see more things and not be tied to anyone else's schedule. DON'T MISS OUT ON THE BEST SIGHTS AND STORIES The tour apps use your device’s location abilities to play the commentary AUTOMATICALLY. All you have to do is drive, listen and decide which places you want to stop at. Our tour guides have created an insightful and entertaining tour of Maui. We’ll recommend the best places to experience and some great locations that most visitors will drive by. PLAYS AUTOMATICALLY GyPSy Guide knows where you are and which direction you are heading, and plays commentary automatically about the things you are seeing, plus stories and tips and advice EXPLORE LIKE A LOCAL It’s just like having a local friend to show you around. And that friend just happens to be a professional tour guide. GREAT VALUE The same information you would get on a bus tour or from a guide book, for just a fraction of the price. And you control the itinerary and schedule. WORKS OFFLINE No data, cellular or even wireless network connection needed while touring. Download over Wi-Fi before you tour. Anyone can use them with no need for roaming data – even visiting from another country. DRIVING TOUR ROUTE The tour has commentary everywhere on the island that you will want to explore. There is at least 3-4 days of sightseeing available to enjoy. This tour includes the most popular sightseeing areas, famous drives and much more: 1) The Road to Hana 2) Haleakala - the Volcano Reservations are required to visit for sunrise. 3) West Maui including Lahaina, Ka'anapali, Kapalua and Kahakuloa 4) Kihei, Wailea and Makena 5) Iao Valley 6) and all the routes that connect these amazing places, NOTES Download the app on Wi-Fi from your network at home or use any free Wi-Fi network. Because the app is filled with audio commentary and maps, its larger than "normal" apps. Many phone/data networks may block the download because of size - so its important to download over a Wi-Fi network. ++ Continued use of GPS running in the background increases battery usage - we strongly recommend taking a cigarette style DC outlet car charger. This is much better than simply plugging into the USB port in a vehicle. ** iPad users - please note that WiFi-only iPads will not activate the commentary automatically. Any iPhone or network-capable iPad (WiFi + Cellular - whether you have a network connection or not) will work just fine. ABOUT US GyPSy Guide™ produce award winning audio tours along scenic drives around the world. Enjoyed by travelers who prefer to set their own pace and itinerary on vacation, but enjoy a fun, informative and educational guided experience. Our goal is to provide a great introduction to the region and perhaps inspire you to learn more and return. None of our apps include paid advertising or placements for benefit.

    I found that the guide was spot on and the suggestions really enhanced my trip. A fun thing to note was how many people we met that suggested the gypsy guide 😁 and how many I referred to the app. Now suggested updates would be allow user to move the screen around to see what was coming down the road and put a re-center button when you do look further down the road. The other suggestion would be to put in a destination and suggest a route that takes us onto the tour route. Might be a little tougher but we found ourselves going to a restaurant and wanting to go exploring afterwards. Other than that I really enjoyed the commentary and learned a lot about the islands.

    I hardly ever buy apps but with the possibility of limited cell service and needing to make the most of my short trip to Maui I bought this. I’m really glad we had it. Like the description suggests, it’s like a tour guid in the car. It’s not perfect but it’s really really good. It knows which direction you’re going to let you know what’s ahead. It was so helpful to get clues about where to stop and the history/backstory that’s included.
  • Great App

    This made our trip to Hana, so much more relaxing and fun. My mom and I were in Maui for vacation and we hadn’t planned a lot of things out. We knew for sure that we wanted to do the road to Hana, but hadn’t done a ton of research on the stops and what not. The day before our trip, I came along a blog that highly recommended this app. So, of course I looked into it and it had nothing big great reviews. First off (and super important), there’s cell no service on the road to Hana. The app is able to continue the GPS, even when you don’t have service. Along with the GPS, the narrator (I named him Dave) tells you where you should stop for gas and food, gives you accurate time lines, let’s you know what’s worth stopping for/the must sees, what’s not worth stopping for, etc. In between spots, he tells stories of Maui’s history, which keeps the long drive interesting and entertaining. It’s almost like you have a personal tour guide accompanying you in the car. This app literally did all of the work for us, we didn’t have to plan a thing really. So if you’re on the fence about downloading, don’t be. It is very, very worth it!

    I never buy apps but gypsy canned highly recommended to us when we visited the Big Island so we got this one when we went to Maui and it was equally awesome. Even talked my cheapskate BFF to get it (her family was in a different car) and she was reluctant to spend the money but she also loved it! His voice is great and you learn so much. He also gives suggestions of laces to stop along the way to for hiking, sight seeing or shopping. It’s really awesome. It was the highlight of both of our Hawaiian vacations.
  • Fantastic guided tour of Maui

    This is by far the best app I downloaded this year, and the price is a bargain for what you get in return. The guide is phenomenal and gave great advice along the way, always stirring us to interesting locations and warning us if some sights were okay to skip in order to save time on the road to Hana. We used all three guided tours of Maui and learned so much about the local geography and history that by the end of our trip our teenagers were hooked and wanted to know more about Queens Ka´ahumanu and Liliuokalani. I only wish I could give him a tip!
  • Best travel app ever used

    As everybody said, this is the best app for Maui travel. It narrates the history and all other stuff. I learnt so much while using this app. It tells way before hand where to park, what too see and what not to miss. Nothing can be better than this with $10

    I debated about buying just the Road to Hana one or this one or neither. Decided to go for it and get this one. Best decision ever! It made Road to Hana so easy and made the ride back home more enjoyable. We loved turning this app on every where we went. Works great. Does tend to wear your battery down but we brought a car charger along and had no problems. If in doubt don’t be! Get the app it will be worth it!
  • Great Tour Companion

    This is an awesome app, a must for anyone planning to see all sites in Maui. Highly recommend it. Few reason for 4 Star, here it is: 1. App does not work too well when you are using it on same phone for navigation. App has to be open on screen not in background. 2. Would be better if it is little more smart and able to have different commentaries based on time, weather, and other items. 3. Tie with some common travel app ( google) so as you are traveling you can see where there are comments and pick route with more comments. 4. Have some history that you can listen to before even starting the trip. Together with that, have some ways to help people plan out their plans based on number of days. Great app, it can be improved with some added features.
  • Great App - very useful & informative

    We used Gypsy Guide for The Road to Hana. Well worth the $9.99 price tag
