TOUR GUIDE FOR SCENIC DRIVES ON HAWAII'S BIG ISLAND If you like driving yourself when you go sightseeing, GyPSy Guide™ tour apps allow you to enjoy a guided tour experience 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 the Big Island of Hawaii. 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 Its 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. WORKS OFFLINE No data, cellular or even wireless network connection needed while touring. Download over wifi before you tour. Anyone can use them with no need for roaming data – even visiting from another country. DRIVING TOUR ROUTES Volcanoes National Park Tour Our tour takes you from resort areas in Kona and the Kohala Coast to Volcanoes National Park, that includes a comprehensive tour inside Volcanoes National Park. Listen to different stories on the drive back to Kona. OR, you can drive clockwise from Kona and Hilo towards the park with full tour commentary as well. Island Circle Route Being an island, you will want to drive all the way around. You can drive our Full Circle Tour around the island in either direction and includes Volcanoes National Park, Hilo, Hamakua Coast, Waipio Valley, Waimea, Punalu'u Black Sand Beach and the Kona Coast. Kohala Coast Scenic Drive Recommended half day drive following the spectacular northern coast of the island including the historic sugar towns of Hawi and Kapaau, the superb views from above the Pololu Valley and then drive over the Kohala Mountains to Waimea cowboy town before returning to the coast. Kona Coast Sightseeing Another half day tour to see Kona's best beaches, the islands best snorkeling and many fascinating cultural and historically significant sites including Kealakekua Bay and the Place of Refuge. Plus many great viewpoints as we tour through the coffee plantation areas. 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. 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.

    We used this app during our recent trip on the Big Island. It was a hit, and a memorable part of our trip. We loved the narrator... we named him Bob! His commentary was interesting and funny! How that we’re back home, we use the browse option, and just listen to Bob every once in a while!
  • Best $8 spent in Big Island

    We had used this app before in Maui on road to Hana five years ago and loved it and decided to try it again at Big Island. It’s just as awesome here. We visited so many spots that weren’t on our plan but made our visit more memorable. The voice is soothing and he has a nice sense of humor and seems to understand the pace at which a tourist will want to spend time and offers options that suits everyone’s needs. Highly recommended! If at all there is anything to improve it I’d say making the app aware of time of day and providing a day planner would be highly useful.
  • Love this app!

    We bought The Big Island and Maui apps and loved them both. They made driving both islands easier and more enjoyable-- interesting information and humor along the way. The Big Island Circle Drive and Maui Road to Hana would not have been the same without them. Especially appreciated prioritizing the stops on the road to Hana. We used the cigarette lighter the whole time to keep the phone charged as recommended and didn't have any problems. A great tour guide!

    This is the first time we have used a tour app and we love it. The information was interesting and very useful. It told us what kind of weather to expect and how much time it would take. I only wish it would let me listen to other places than the ones I was near to be able to plan better.
  • Very enjoyable! Great way to tour the island

    By Techtonicks

  • Wanted more

    By Mrs HB Verde
    Yes this app guides you where to go and contains a few informative snippets as you drive along but there was so much more information that was missing we were disappointed.
  • Get this App!!!
