Description

GyPSy Guide GPS driving tour of the Big Island of Hawaii is an excellent way to enjoy a sightseeing trip to explore the entire island. There are 460+ 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 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.

    This app was super helpful in navigating the Big Island! We enjoyed the stories and commentary and even humor along the way! The only suggestion we had was to include some Hawaiian music during the times the tour guide wasn't speaking, as it could be rather boring at those times, or to have it as an option to play Hawaiian music. I was able to play my own, but having it within the app would be wonderful. Overall I would definitely use this app again for other tours in Hawaii!
  • Wonderful

    Imagine you're driving the Big Island with a local who knows everything about the island's important sights, history, and geology AND is a great storyteller who knows when to be quiet. That's GPS guy. Like a smarter, friendlier, and funnier cousin of Siri, GPS Guy is full of timely and appreciated facts about Hawai'i, with tips and info when you need them, where you need them. Especially on the big island, which requires lots of driving to see it all, he makes the miles go by quickly.
  • Great for all types of travelers

    We are off the beaten path types of adventure travelers, and while we don't want to go where everyone else goes or do all of the typical stuff, we found this happen to be still super helpful in telling us a bunch of stuff we never would've learned otherwise. Also, the narrations are just the right length just the right quantity and also done by a guy with a soothing and unintrusive voice. Highly recommended especially for this price.
