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.

  • 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
  • Get this app!

    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
  • Best Guide for Maui

    Definitely worth $10! We named our guide Fred. He not only navigates you throughout the island, but also gives informative details and historical stories. But not in a boring way!
  • Worth it

    Incredibly helpful to have. The guide uses way points based on your location using the free GPS signal. Another good feature is the way there is different than the way back so it’s like 2 for 1. I do wish you could click on a point to have it restart the audio because there were a few times we either closed the app mid talk to take a picture or we forgot to turn it back on. Other than that it was awesome.
  • Pay the $10, you won’t regret it!

    You will buy a hamburger for $16, a cocktail for $10-$20, and $10 for sunscreen! I don’t usually pay for apps but if you knew how great this app was you wouldn’t give it a second thought! We got this for the road to Hana and it made the experience 50x better! We had done it before without the app and their is no comparison. He will teach you the history of Maui with excellent narration (the kids 5 and 7 are still retelling the historical tails to friends and family), along with give you tips on the best spots and strategies for making it the trip the best it can be. My wife, my kids and I all LOVE this app! The best $10 we spent on the entire trip!!!
  • Waste of money

    We really enjoyed this App! Great useful tips and routes! We used the App and went all over Maui and trust me, this is better than any tour. Great commentary and great humor. Make sure to check National Park though, we drove all the way to the sacred pools after Hana, as the app suggested but they were closed.
