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 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.

Worth every penny

We came to really like our tour guide. Learned a ton and the kids loved it too. Well worth it!

Y’all, seriously, you have to get this app. There was a big group of us from 9-80 years old in 3 different vehicles. This app was so incredible. It kept the drivers calm, led us right to where we needed to go and even where we didn’t need to waste time. We took the whole Hana loop and absolutely loved the humor, advice, and history. And, as the driver, I liked the drink my passengers treated me too when we got back to the resort (great suggestion GyPsy). You will NOT regret this small purchase!!!!!!!

Great app for the road to Hana

We enjoyed this app and all of the extra historical info about Hawai’i
By Mom of five babes


This app was recommended by a friend that visited Hawaii. This app is a must have on the road to Hana. It gives detailed directions and information about the key stops to make in order to see the key attractions along to road. It was amazing to me that the virtual tour guide seemed to know exactly where we were EVEN THOUGH we had NO cell service!!! The tour guide gave us A LOT of history about Hawaii and how things have been developed on the islands since before they were discovered by the Europeans. I would suggest that perhaps the stops and highlights be pointed out when people make the journey from the rougher side of the mountain. My group did this intending to stop at some spots that we had missed the previous day journeying to Hana up the narrated side but missed them because they were not mentioned when traveling the road in reverse. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS APP if you want to get a REAL HAWAII experience!!! It is WELL WORTH whatever fee they are charging for it.

Great Road Trip Guide

Someone tipped us off to this app. It was the best way to drive the Road to Hana. Everything was perfect from telling about the courtesy at the single-lane bridges, to the not-to-miss stops, to the tip to eat at the Fish Market in Paia- the best meal we had in Maui. The history on the return trip was very interesting too.

A Great Experience

Amazing audio guide on the way up. Awesome that it was tied to our location literally made it feel like he was in the car with us. The narrative on the history of Hawaii on the way back was the cherry on top. It kept the 6 people in our car super engaged. Will recommend to everyone I know.

So Entertaining!

We love Gypsy Guide! Anytime we travel we always check to see if there is an audio tour available. It’s accuracy and the ease of its use is so appealing. We can’t recommend it enough!

So good for the first timer!

Loved this app, found it so resourceful. Only recommended detail is for the tour guide to say “here”, we missed many turnoffs.

Great tour app!!

Such interesting information, practical advice as we drove the road to Hana. So glad we took the advice of a random fellow traveler who had been here before!!

Must Have to travel to Hana

This is a wonderful guide that gives great highlights and information about the Road to Hana. Very innovative as it tracks your location by GPS and alerts you to viewpoints, waterfalls, parks and safe parking locations. Narrator has a great voice. Be sure to listen on the way home and learn more about the history of Hana and Hawaii. So we glad used this app even though we have made this trip multiple times.
