It’s Just Like Having a Tour Guide in Your Car™ WHAT TO EXPECT: This tour features 2 of Utah’s most magnificent parks, both Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks. The highlight of each park is their incredible geological formations. In Zion it’s the massive near vertical rock walls that line the canyon carved by the Virgin River. For Bryce, it’s gazing down from the rim of the Amphitheater and trying to absorb the presence of thousands of hoodoo formations. Your tour includes both parks and the 1.5 hour drive using Highway 89 that connects them. The tours begin as you approach either Zion or Bryce Canyon, you can begin at either, or even join the route along the way if you are arriving from Grand Canyon North Rim. The commentary highlights all of the best location of viewpoints and has information on many of the popular hiking trails you may choose to explore. And the region has a rich collection of stories of characters who framed the history, the native Americans who came before them as well as providing background of the amazing natural wonders. Shuttle buses operate in the busiest sections of these parks. You can take this tour with you and continue listening if shuttle bussing is mandatory during your visit. WHAT YOU’LL SEE: Some of the highlights along the route include; • Zion Canyon including all stops on the Canyon's Scenic Drive • Bryce Canyon Amphitheater • Bryce Canyon 18-mile Scenic Drive • Highway 9 switchbacks and Tunnels • East Zion & Checkerboard Mesa • Red Canyon • La Verkin Overlook • Grafton Ghost Town BATTERY USAGE: ++ Continued use of GPS/Location Services in the background increases battery usage.

We have bought this for six different national parks. LOVE IT! We have purchased this app for 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!!
These GyPSy apps are a must if you travel the National Parks, so much to learn and they point out interesting facts along the way.
My wife and I used the SW app for touring Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. This app was outstanding for directions, park priorities and provided wonderful background stories for rack location. It was an amazing supplement to Information provided by the NPS and was very reasonably priced.
Compared to their Yellowstone store this one fell flat and we felt it was a waste of money.
I will never go without this app we used Bryce ,Zion, Grand Canyon and using Yellowstone now!! We would have been lost or paying high dollar for a tour bus or guide!! Everyone in my party praises this app every day !! Thanks for saving our vacation by making it a lot easier!!
This is a great app and very much worth the money. Having your own guide in the car was wonderful. Very informative and told us about spots we probably would have missed. Hope they keep adding more because we don’t want to go anywhere without these apps!!
We used this app while driving from Bryce Canyon to Zion, and again the next day, heading into Zion a different way. We were made aware of a cool ghost town we would otherwise not have known about. Very helpful info on park entrance and parking options, as well as history of the area and fun facts. Highly recommend!
We loved this app. We were able to see everything in the park we wanted to see without consulting maps or paying for an expensive tour. I highly recommend it!
