Description

There are 140+ audio points that play automatically along the scenic drive, featuring the best things to see and do, stories, tips and driving directions. Professional tour guides share advice on how to prioritize your time at recommended “not to be missed” viewpoints, suggested side-trips and places of interest. Tours work offline, using free GPS signal and location services, so no data roaming, network, or wifi is required while touring. Visit www.gypsyguide.com for route maps, sample audio, tips and advice and what to know before you go. It’s Just Like Having a Tour Guide in Your Car™ WHAT TO EXPECT: The Road to Hana is one of the world’s most scenic drives and a popular sightseeing activity to see Maui’s spectacular waterfalls, black sand beaches, bamboo forests, lava rock formations and amazing ocean views as you wind your way through 620 curves and 59 bridges. If you prefer travelling independently, at your own pace, GyPSy Guide provides the best Road to Hana tour experience, along with the freedom to choose what you enjoy; squishing the black sand between your toes at Wai’anapanapa, hiking the Pipiwai Bamboo Trail, or maybe time to enjoy an extra slice of banana bread. You can’t help but cheer on the world class windsurfers at Ho’okipa. And you won’t need to worry about photoshopping the Rainbow Eucalyptus at the Ke’anae Arboretum or the stunning contrast between blue water and black lava rock at Ke’anae Peninsular. Take a moment to cool off with a quick swim at the pristine Hamoa Beach and see where Haleakala National Park descends from the summit to the sea and the “Seven Sacred Pools” of Oheo at the end of the drive. With such a long day of exploring (expect 8-12 hours), it’s important to know the 5 “not to be missed” stops, and the many more suggestions if you have time. Part of the secret to enjoying the journey is knowing how not to waste your time, and we have tips for that as well. On the return drive from Hana, we’ll point out the not to be missed stops again as well as tell you stories about Hawaii’s fascinating history and rich culture. Please note Highway #31 ‘backside route’ is not recommended for driving. Rental car insurance void. Road can be closed for repairs, mudslides and flash floods. WHAT YOU’LL SEE: Some of the highlights along the route include; • Ho’okipa Beach Park • Paia • Ke’anae Peninsular • Wai’anapanapa Park, Black Sand Beach • Hana • Hamoa Beach • Wailua Falls • Twin Falls • Upper Waikanai Falls (3 Bears) • Pools of O’heo (Seven Sacred Pools) • Pipiwai Bamboo Trail **Reservations to visit Wai'anapanapa State Park and black sand beach are now mandatory** BATTERY USAGE: ++ Continued use of GPS/Location Services in the background increases battery usage. We strongly recommend taking a cigarette style (DC outlet) car charger. Avoid using a direct connection to the USB port of a rental vehicle. IPADS: ** iPad models must include a GPS chip. Please note that Apple only install these on the iPad Wifi + Cellular models. Wifi only iPad models have limited location service capabilities and are unable to play commentary automatically. DOWNLOADING: The apps are larger in size in order to work offline. You must be on wifi to download as the store may block the download over cellular networks.

Easier experience

This app made our Road to Hana experience smoother. We were overwhelmed with trying not to miss important sights or stops and couldn’t find a good map or picture on the internet. We decided to purchase this and it is worth the 10 dollars. The history lessons along the way back made the experience even better. Definitely recommend.

No need for paid guided tour

This app for road to Hana was awesome. You probably get more info from this than a paid tour. He answered questions right after I was thinking them. The ride was awesome using the app. There is no better way to ride to Hana than without using this tool. Well worth the 10 dollars. I would of paid $50 dollars knowing what I know now.

Must have for road to Hana!

The map was a necessary as there is no service for most of the journey, the guide gave exacting directions on where to pull off, turn and direct your gaze throughout the tour. The little tidbits of Hawaiian history also made the drive more interesting. Highly recommend!!

The guide to Road to Hana

5
Well first of all…….. The narrator was ABSOLUTELY AWWWEESOME! The man had a very soothing voice as well as the most on point informative aspect of the entire trip. I actually wanted to seek him out and be his real life friend. Lol. But seriously he didn’t miss a beat. Every single pin point was exact and if my wife and child had not had him on our journey it wouldn’t have been nearly anything we had expected. Literally within 30 seconds on the point of every stop or what to do on the road was almost exact! Oh and he had jokes too! That alone with his wisdom of the island made the trip absolutely spectacular! I would have never expected it to be like it was. This trip was a trip of a lifetime and he definitely was a huge part of the entire experience! We learned SO much about the history of Maui and Hawaii itself! Even on the way back we learned so many things we did not know. I will say this. I’m glad I was never a king of Hawaii because the life expectancy was very short. The road to Hana was superb to say the least. The memories my wife and child and i had will be engrained in us forever and the guide will always be a part of that. The views, the food and the people as well. Can’t say enough about Gypsy guide and like the person that recommended it to me before we came here I will pay it forward for many more people to do the same. LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!! Much love! And thank you!

Absolutely essential and worth every penny!

We had heard from friends that this app would be extremely helpful with our tour. We were blown away by attention to detail the app provides! The narrator does an amazing job at pointing out which stops are a “must see” and how long to expect to spend at each stop. He pointed out photo ops and where the best parking would be. On the way home you get an in-depth history of Hawaii and it’s culture. We didn’t know who the narrator was so we called him Gary and he was a member of our family for our trip!!

Up there with the best apps I’ve ever used. If you’re taking the road to Hana trip I consider this app an absolute must. It followed along perfectly to guide you to interesting or must see attractions. Also very interesting historical facts about the island. I can’t recommend this highly enough. Worth every cent.
