Other tours in the series include: * The Icefields Parkway * Jasper National Park * Banff Townsite and Area For BEST VALUE, you may prefer to download the Canadian Rockies GyPSy Guide which includes all of these too. 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.

Happened to pick up a brochure on Gypsy guided GPS tours just minutes before we headed down the Icefields Parkway from Jasper to Banff. That day driving was so fantastic not only because of the natural beauty, but by the addition of this guided tour. It’s like having a super nice and informed friend in the backseat. Based on that experience we purchased the Lake Louise and Yoho National Park tour and had an equally wonderful day. The tips and history... and the driving directions are wonderful.
As others have said, this is a MUST have app while in the Canadian Rockies. It would have been a different trip without it. Not sure where to suggest to the developer, but if you could put an image with good weather. We just had a rainy drive in the 1st week of July. We heard to see “that mountain and at times could not see anything due to the weather. It would be a 10 star app to see some of them for the unlucky travelers like us. Again, fantastic job with your app. Amazing history, must do hikes/stops, and just enough talk to not take away from the trip. Great job!!!
Amazing Loved It !! Used in Banff
New best buddy when traveling. Now let’s develop one for rural towns in Georgia!
We cruised the road from Banff to Lake Louise listening to the informative tour guide. He has an enthusiastic voice that is deep and easy to listen to. We were in our car slowly cruising alongside a black bear when our narrator was telling us to be on the lookout for wildlife. Perfect! This app is worth it.
We started listening toGyPSy Guide during our trip to Maui and loved it. We were so pleased to find the Guide was also available for our trip to Banff 2 months later. The narrator is so easy on the ears. We just can’t wait to cross to the next gps narration point and learn something new, things we otherwise would never know. We learn things like not only a mountain’s name but a brief history behind it’s discovery. When the narrator comes through our car speakers all conversations stop. His suggestions for places to pull over or to not bother to stop are spot on. Thanks for helping to make a great trip even better. Hope you all keep up the good job. I almost feel like waiting to see what tours you put up next before planning my next trip just so we can have your insights.
Book your travel and accommodation tickets to Banff.. download the apps based on how much time you have. Just done waste your time planning like I did.. you can never get it close to what they have done with these apps. I tried both Lake Louise and Jasper.. Sit back and enjoy the blissful ride with the help of this tour. Looking forward to more tours across the world with Gypsy..!!!
Best App!!!! Worth every single $!! Commentary was very informative and entertaining. Excellent listening as we drove around. I will look this app up for any of my trips and see if available for that area. A must buy!!!
I purchased the 4 pack of tours in Banff, Jasper, the Ice Fields Pkwy, and Lake Louise. Our family enjoyed the commentary and directions. We also named you "Bobert". Bobert, you were like a wise member of the family in the car. But then suddenly Bobert left us and Gary started narrating once we arrived in Banff. We are worried. We got kind of attached! Improvements...We wish you had a wildlife tracker feature with the app. Maybe a heat sensor? Work on that. Haha. Otherwise, the app is perfect and we highly recommend!!
I wish we had known about this sooner! What an incredible app to learn and experience beautiful places. The commentary is so interesting and informative. We would highly recommend it and will be telling everyone we know to get it.
