GyPSy Guide GPS driving tour of Kauai is an excellent way to enjoy a sightseeing trip to explore the entire island. There are 280+ 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 KAUAI 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 Kauai. 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 It’s 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 and schedule. WORKS OFFLINE No data, cellular or even wireless network connection needed while touring. Download over Wi-Fi before you tour. Anyone can use them with no need for roaming data – even visiting from another country. DRIVING TOUR ROUTE The tour has commentary everywhere on the island that you will want to explore. We recommend dividing the island into at least 2 driving days. 1) North and Eastern Kauai. This half of the island tours through the famous northern beach and resort areas of Hanalei and Princeville. The tour continues all the way to the end of the road at Ke’e Beach. Between Princeville and Lihue we’ll explore many fine beaches and the vibrant town of Kapa’a. 2) South and Western Kauai. The resort area of Poipu is home to south shore's best beaches and the island’s most famous blowhole. Drive further for the artsy town of Hanapepe. From historic Waimea, we travel up Kauai’s volcanic mountains to the superb Waimea Canyon and continue to the awe-inspiring viewpoints of Koke’e Park perched above the Na Pali Cost. There’s much more to see as we drive and GyPSy will be you very own tour guide all the way. 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. ** iPad users - please note that WiFi-only iPads will not activate the commentary automatically. Any iPhone or network-capable iPad (WiFi + Cellular - whether you have a network connection or not) will work just fine.

We’ve really been enjoying the guide’s advice and personality. We saw things we otherwise would have missed. Highly recommend!!!!!
Thanks Jeff! We had a great time in Kauai with you as our personal tour guide. Will definitely recommend this app and can’t wait to tour with you again.
We heard about Gypsy on Cruise Critic where it was highly rated. As the driver, I appreciated getting early warnings for turns, stops etc. Also great to have the description of a point-of-interest long enough beforehand to decide whether or not to stop in. Lots of opportunity to partake or pass by and Gypsy adapts to your choices. Like other reviewers, it greatly enhanced or visit. We saw great waterfalls and other highlights that otherwise would have been overlookeed. We enjoyed the stories in between stops and liked the narrator’s voice and personality. We had no glitches in using it. I also like that I can play back the stories months later using the preview mode. I would definitely purchase more Gypsy. If I had known it was this good, I would also have gotten the Oahu edition too. Well done devs! I’ll be looking for more locales to try out.
Provided interesting commentary. Geology, history, humor—does it all. Would have liked guidance to the tour starting point, but otherwise a joy to use.
Fabulous tour worth every cent. Very informative and entertaining.
If you are looking to tour Kauai Hawaii or Maui you need these apps! They are so worth the money and you will find places and learn things you would have never known. I will download these tours everywhere I go, wherever offered! A MUST HAVE APP!
We really enjoyed the narrator. He gave so much information and history. Even when we went off path he gave information. I would highly recommend it.
Recycles content from other islands. Several technical issues, including terrible mapping that makes it hard to see where you are and impossible to scale/zoom the map to see a larger area. Audio issues caused narration to be doubled up with a delay.
This took us all around and gave some great information. Definitely worth the money and I will use this every time I travel.
I was so frustrated with the books and pamphlets I had bought for this trip. They were so hard to navigate. Day 2 hubs wishes aloud that there was an app like the CD we had bought for the Road to Hana on Maui. Bingo!! This app saved our sanity! It was so enjoyable and informative! Only wish we had known about it to begin with. We bought the bundle deal as we are headed to the Big Island tomorrow for a week. I will definitely recommend this to my friends who are planning to travel to Hawaii!
