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.




  • Big island circle tour

    Great facts as you go around the island. Lots of places to stop and make side trips if you just need a break from the car. This is a great way to take a self paced tour of the island by rental car and not pay for an overpriced tour guide that limits your destinations.
  • Well worth the money!

    By Techtonicks
    Surprisingly well done. Great way to see the island!
  • A must have for first time visitors!

    Came across this app browsing info for my first visit to the Big Island. Best $10 I spent. We had a car rental for the week and we love getting out to explore on our own. The app is very informative of Hawaiian culture & legends with spot on directions. Even drops a few local tasty treat options.
  • Not for me

    By cribbage pete
    Boring and not helpful. I relied on Yelp, travel books and Google maps.
  • Best app I have purchased

    By iampatmann
    The quality of this app and the narration is amazing. Best purchase I have ever made for touring and maybe for all apps.
  • This app is a must have!

    By momfooj
    This app made all the difference during our recent trip to the Big Island. We took a lot of day trips during our vacation. The app kept us informed of upcoming points of interest as well as the history of the area. We liked the app so much, we’ve recommended it to other vacationers that we ran into, as well as, friends of ours who were headed to the Big Island. The only trouble I had was initially getting my phone connected to the sound system in the rental car. But, that problem had more to do with the rental car and my phone, not the app.
  • Its worth the money, however a chance to improve

    By Best self guided tour
    After the Road to Hana App, we are impressed and bought this as well. Good part is guided well through the volcano national park and history explanaiton is awesome. One negative part, App assumes trip starts from Kona, but we started our trip from Hilo and skips the locations and just talk about history during our drive from Hilo to Kona costal drive via Volcanic park. How ever still this is one of the best App we purchased.
  • Big Island

    By JKS2045
    We used this app during a two month stay of the big island. It was better than a private guide as it provided insight on sights and the Hawaiian people. They provided instant live telephone support on a Saturday when I mistakenly touched a wrong option. I definitely would buy their guides for other areas I visit.
  • Great value

    Well worth the money spent, nice to have and service was great.
  • Love, love, love

    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!
