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. Will not play automatically on Wifi-only iPads. ++ 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.




  • Very Accurate and Not Overhyped

    By Hridoydoctor
    This is truly like having a guide sitting next to you. All the turns are accurate and the descriptions are not hyped up ( unlike the well known driving guide to Hana in Maui). The descriptions are down to earth and the historical snippets are quite interesting. If I did not have this guide, I would have to do a lot of research on my own, but who has the time before coming on vacation. So if you are laid back and did not do much research, download this app using WiFi and you won’t miss a thing. Strongly recommend this app.
  • Guided us to a great adventure

    By BebeHart
    We loved being guided around the island so we didn’t miss anything. This app provided Tips and recommend stops we Never would have known about. We enjoyed the history lessons too!! We highly recommend this app. Recommend you ensure it can be connected to you Car speakers as the volume is a little low on your phone. Make sure to download the app before you venture out as the file is too large without WiFi !!
  • The Big Island

    By The Peacocks
    Our family got to The Big Island a week ago and I downloaded this app! It was fantastic to have our personal guide around the Island! This was our second trip to the Island and we missed out on so much not knowing the best way to see the Island was just a few clicks away! Going on adventures and excursions can cost a lot of money. Using this app I was able to cruise around in airplane mode conserving battery and using my phone as a camera! When I travel to other Hawaiian Islands I will be downloading those as well!
  • Great App! Well worth the $

    By Bryanj86
    Use this on our trip, was great! Took us to all the spots mentioned by the other tours and quite a few others. Narration is entertaining and informative. Worked quite well! We took out time and spent 3 days using the app and we’re never disappointed.

  • Awesome Guide

    By Gdog 2015
    First time in the Big Island with my family and we all enjoyed the tidbits, stories and information the “guide” provided. Your app was right on point!
  • Best App to have on the Big Island

    By Jen dittoe
    Hands down the best $10 we spent on our vacation. He went off the map and gave us the best history and facts while we drove. Didn’t matter if we didn’t have the internet on the drive, works no matter what! Highly highly recommend!!
  • Perfect companion to a big island trip

    By Sugaku
    We are in the middle of our Big Island trip and this app is incredible: we get so much color as we drive around, know the significance, know the history, or just have the confidence that if there is a good viewing area or interesting spot around then the narrator will tell us about it.
  • So Glad We Found This App!

    By vsness
    On a whim, we checked out if there any self driving tours while visiting The Big Island in Hawaii. We rented a car for two days, spent $160, plus $10 for the app. I think we had a better experience on her own using this app then if we would’ve spent $200 per person for tours to the various places we got to visit. The narrative was wonderful. Very informative and kept us entertained. Next time I go someplace I’m going to check if there’s an app again for a self driving tour!
  • Big island circle tour

    By VolcanoChild
    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.
