It’s Just Like Having a Tour Guide in Your Car™ WHAT TO EXPECT: Yosemite just might be the iconic US National Park. A land of giants, massive granite cliffs and domes providing the setting for dramatic waterfalls to tumble thousands of feet over. Our tour begins as you approach each entrance, listen to an overview of the geological features you’ll be viewing and how time and the elements have shaped the valley, as well as a plan for exploring the Park. While in Yosemite Valley, with stops at Yosemite and Bridalveil Falls we’ll show where to spot for rock climbers on the sheer granite El Capitan. Considered mecca for climbers from all over the world, you’ll hear about their feats, while new records may be set for you to see. As we climb to the spectacular Glacier Point for views down into the valley, you’ll learn how important Presidential visits shaped the future for National Parks and hear how the legendary Buffalo Soldiers became guardians of the National Park. Travel to a hidden corner of Yosemite National Park, the Hetch Hetchy Valley and feel rather insignificant as you stand under the towering Giant Sequoias in Mariposa Grove. The tour officially starts and ends close to each entrance of the Park; Big Oak Flat, El Portal, Fish Camp Wawona or Lee Vining Tioga Pass entrances. Or you can join and pick up the commentary anywhere along the route. Narration will automatically trigger at the next commentary point. WHAT YOU’LL SEE: Highlights along the tour route include • Mariposa Grove • Bridalveil Falls • El Capitan • Yosemite Valley • Glacier Point • Hetch Hetchy • Tioga Pass • Yosemite Falls • Half & Sentinel Domes • Wawona Covered Bridge • Olmsted Point • Tuolumne Grove Don't miss out on the best stops and stories.

We were so glad we downloaded this and had Mr. Gypsy take us around Yosemite and tell us stories along the way. My 7 and 10 year old loved it, and even my hard to please hubby. I experienced the best Yosemite had to offer and learned so much, while also being entertained. I will not do another trip without this app!
Must have that application when you going to National Park for first time, please make one for sequoia and kings Canyon NP, with out guide is shutting in dark.
We have purchased this for seven different parks and it is awesome! Bryce & Zion, Yellowstone & Grand Tetons, Rocky Mtn, and Yosemite National Parks. The narrator is fabulous! He alerts you along the way with must-do stops and prioritizes others. In between, he gives short anecdotes about the geology or history of the area. His voice is energetic without being childish and the stories he tells are interesting. Every time we go to a national park, I look in the App Store for the GyPSy Guide for the area...it does not disappoint!!
Loved this app. Will look for it on all my future trips. Had it playing in car and every time it came on my boys got off their phones and shushed everyone so they could hear the interesting commentary. Very helpful info for Yosemite trails.
We have used Gypsy Guide in other parks before Yosemite. Didn’t disappoint. This guide is easy to use, has so much info!! It stayed with us no matter where we were in the park and allows visitors to really enjoy Yosemite without worries of missing something or getting lost. INVALUABLE!
Researching, I ran across the Gypsy Guide for Yosemite National Park. For $5+ what’s to loose. We were so pleased at the points he pointed out that we would have missed. Also he helps navigate at turns and major routes. After Yosemite we went to the hotel and downloaded the Big Sur tour, just as informative plus 7 have to ding dongs, so you don’t miss out. This tour was $9+, but worth it. Highly recommend this app
My wife and I learned about the app on the Yosemite Facebook page and also saw it in a Yosemite magazine. We decided to try it and were so glad that we did! We learned so much driving from place to place and all of the recommendations were spot on. It is also very helpful with where to turn, etc. We came away from the trip with so much more history and knowledge than we would have got by just doing it ourselves. Really cool and highly recommended.
So glad we used this app. Not only did it point out interesting places along our drive, it helped so much in knowing where to park and what to anticipate along the way.
This app is incredible. Well worth the money. The guide sounds like someone I would love to meet! Personable, funny, articulate and so informative! Around every turn seems something new and enjoyable to hear about! Such great information and just interesting to listen to. Have just purchased the guide to Zion and Bryce Canyon trips and can’t wait to use it again . Thank u for this fantastic app!
This made my Yosemite trip 1000x better. We drove into the park in the South Gate and I remembered to turn this app on. I was blown away at how you basically have a knowledgeable tour guide in the car with you! He recommended we stop at Glacier Point, then showed us the Yosemite Valley! Just buy this app if you are going to Yosemite, even if you have been there before this will tell you about facts and stories you didn’t know! BUY BUY BUY!!!
