Description

GyPSy Guide’s narrated driving tour for the Road to Hana, Maui is an excellent way to enjoy all the benefits of a guided tour while you explore at your own pace. 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 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.

Road to Hana is CLOSED!! 6/16/2020

Before we head to Hana, I purchased the app based on good reviews but it was useless app since the road to Hana is closed. I called the 800 number for refund but just answering machine. I called next day again but still answering machine. I feel like I am ripped off. You shouldn’t sell the app if the road is closed!

Road to Hana was great using this app. Knowing where to stop, what was coming up, the must see locations and best viewing areas Best day - thank you many pictures of the beautiful journey 🤙🏻

Great app!

I don’t usually write reviews for most of the apps I have but I had to make one for this app to say how great it was! It was a wonderful app, lots of tips and great advice for where to stop and things to see on the road to Hana. The drive and the trip up would not have been the same without this app. The stories about Maui going back from Hana were also great. My only comment would be that maybe it would be nice to have some background or lull music while the commentary is not going. Sometimes it would be quiet for a while and the voice would come back which can be a little surpassing at times, especially if the volume is turned up. Some very light, and quiet background music would be welcomed in those parts I think. But otherwise, the app is well worth it and it felt like I was on a more expensive paid tour for only 6.99!

Loved this!

The Road to Hana is beautiful, full of interesting things but we would have missed half of it without this guide! It is so well done that you feel totally comfortable driving the crazy road knowing what is coming up, where to turn, what to skip, where to pull over...it’s brilliant! We thoroughly enjoyed the instructions, commentary and the history on our return journey. That was a complete surprise! I just assumed the guide only guided you down to Hana but we got to learn some very interesting history on our return journey too! Overall this was such a helpful to tool and totally made the days excursion!

Worth it!!

This app made all the difference in our trip. The narration is interesting and sometimes humorous. I recommended the app to other friends and they were just as impressed. So lucky we found this app.

Must download

5
Excellent app which guided us through the entire trip. Every bit of the narration is so well aligned with the location, you will never feel like you are lost when it comes to parking etc., The best part is the stories that are narrated on the way back which gave a complete history of Hawaii. I’m glad I learnt the history and culture through this app in this visit. The app is worth every penny

This app was AMAZING!! There’s should be an app like this for every must-see place. It made the drive so easy and enjoyable and I didn’t have to worry about navigating without cell service.

Excellent commentary

Made the long beautiful trip easier and more interesting. Learned about new places too. Highly recommend.
By OctoberFox

For the App creators consideration.

I am very excited to use this app! I do, although, think that perhaps the makers should consider a different name. The term “Gypsy” is a perforative term referring the a group of Roma who migrated from India centuries ago. Thank you for your consideration! And thank you for creating this content.
