It’s Just Like Having a Tour Guide in Your Car™ WHAT TO EXPECT: America’s first National Park – Yellowstone, continues to awe visitors with amazing geothermal features; geysers, boiling mud, fumaroles and hot springs are abundant throughout the park, as well as spectacular mountains, lakes, canyons and rivers. It is also home to a diverse range of wildlife including grizzly bears, bison, wolves, elk and pronghorn. Grand Teton National Park serene beauty is a fantastic contrast to the volatility of Yellowstone. With perhaps even better wildlife spotting opportunities and fewer visitors vying for that perfect image. As we drive the Grand Loop Drive, you’ll appreciate the geology 101 recap to better understand the popular geothermal wonders like Old Faithful in the Upper Geyser Basin and Grand Prismatic Spring in the Midway Geyser Basin, while we reveal some lessor visited areas, that are equally stunning. See why it’s considered a megafauna location with the largest concentration of mammals in the lower 48 and uncover the story behind how a tiny Yellowstone bacterium helps solves crimes. And visit the historical remnants of the pioneering settlers on their forge West and the visit the location of one of the most popular images help to promote the Park.

While visiting Yellowstone we noticed that they are lacking in signs and information pretty much throughout the whole park. This app had been recommended on a blog we had read. We used it through our week long trip and throughout the Tetons. I highly recommend
A friend told us about this app one week before we went to Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Wow! This app is the best! It truly was like having a private tour guide in our backseat. “Chuck” was amazing. He knew exactly where we were and told us about upcoming sites and places of interest. Along the way he gave us very interesting facts on history, flora and fauna, the ecosystem, etc. Every one of “Chuck’s” suggestions were absolutely right on. In fact we were coming up to Great Fountain Geyser, which we would have never known to stop at, and “Chuck” very enthusiastically told us to pull in and that if we were lucky, and the timing was just right, we would get to see this geyser which only goes off once every 12 hours. Well once again “Chuck” was absolutely right and we got to the geyser 10 minutes before it blew. It was very exciting and I’m still impressed that somehow the app knew the timing was just right. I absolutely recommend that you buy this app. It will be the best $10 you ever spent. I don’t think a real human tour guide would have been any better. One tip that the app doesn’t tell you is if your car has CarPlay, you can plug it into the USB port and play it through the speakers. This was a much more enjoyable experience than plugging it into the 12V and listening through the iPhone speaker.
I would like to preface this by saying I never pay for apps-not even $0.99. This app cost $9.99 and is the best 10 bucks I ever spent! Worked perfectly-and there is almost NO cell service in the park(s). I had no technical issues, and they tell you how to reach customer support in case you do. The app works great, you learn things and it’s funny at times. He tells you about little side attractions we would not have otherwise know about. Yes I had the NPS apps but without cell service they don’t do much. Having this guide was like having our own personal tour guide. So glad we had this app to make the most of our trip and help us navigate these parks. Now I want to go where there are GyPsy apps for!!!
We enjoyed the app very much! The commentary was extremely helpful and we loved the history and nature stories he gave throughout the drive. Also a bit of humor added in! We were directed to points of interest that we would not have known about otherwise. Our group commented several times that we were so happy we downloaded this app and didn’t know what we’d do without it! Highly recommended!!
This app really surprised us. The technology was amazing and gave us so much information as we toured Yellowstone and The Grand Tetons. We saw much more and learned so much about the parks by using this app! The commentator was very engaging! Our only recommendation was restarting after each stop was hard. We Would like to see a resume button.
Some friends told us about Gypsy Guide, and we were so thankful that we invested a small amount of money on the combined app (we toured Yellowstone in 3 days, then on to the Tetons for 2 more.) This app was well worth the investment!! Thank You, Gypsy Guide! We heard information relative to where we were in the Park, with different information for the direction we took (if we drove East, we heard one commentary, if we drove West, it was completely different. So cool! This is the app you’ll appreciate as you drive throughout these National Parks!
Loved having our own personal tour guide. If you have an IPhone don’t use The Bluetooth in your car as your music off your phone will take over.
This app was one of the highlights of our trip to Yellowstone. It perfectly guided us throughout the park and provided a slew of very informative commentary about the park and its wildlife. A must for first time visitors. Well worth the money. A true hit.
We named the voice “Gary the Gypsy Guide” while we listened to it. This was an amazing resource while we were touring the park. It gave us history, science facts, geology background, etc. We felt like we had our own tour guide while we were in the park. It always knew where we were and would start up and tell us about what was coming up in perfect time. I highly recommend it!
At first I was hesitant about purchasing this when there are plenty of free apps. However, this is possibly the best money we spent on the trip! It was so easy to use, and incredibly informative! We learned so much more from the commentary than we ever would have known on our own. From now on, we will always use a GyPSy guide on our trips! Be sure to read the directions and download the content before you get there, and the app takes care of the rest! Highly recommend!
