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. 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.

Great experience! Made the Road to Hana easy and enjoyable!

Download this app! At the recommendation of multiple people we downloaded this for our drive. It made the trip on the Road to Hana easy, fun, educational, & overall a great experience. We also appreciated the Hawaiian history that was shared on the return trip and helped add to our appreciation of the trip and the Hawaiian islands.

Was well worth it! So pleased!!

Gave us detailed point by point information about stops on road to Hana. I think it must use satellite or gps because most of the time we didn’t have cell service. Have historical and cultural information and data on the places. Gave the top recommendations of places to go and was so beautiful! It was like have our own personal tour guide! If you are going to do the drive - start early - before sun up and try to hit the points at the end of the road to Hana earlier like say late morning and then work your way back. Be patient and expect delays as there are several parts of the road that are just narrow one lane portions. Was just an awesome day. Try to plan on a day that is not already forecast for rain

We thoroughly enjoyed listening to “Uncle Talkie” take us through Hana. This saved me from having my nose in a book the entire ride. Lots a great information & history. The road to Hana is a stunning experience & this made it all the better!

Road to Hana

Amazing & accurate app! It always knew where we were to pickup the narrative where it left off. Very informational commentary. We’ll work $9.99.

Best app ever!

Heard about this from a co worker and thought it wasn’t something I needed for my drive but decided last minute “what the heck why not” I had no clue what I would we would have done without it. Told us all the great spots and when exactly to turn! Also on the turn around back from the trip it gave us a whole story on what happen on the areas and a story of Hawaiian history. Perfection.

$200 tour for the price of $10

We had a rental car so skipped the guided Hana tour option, which would have been $200 per person (and we had 5 people). This app absolutely told us everything we needed to know. The guide was hilarious. The stops were breathtaking. The tips were helpful. Absolutely get this if you’re doing Hana without a professional guide

Do not miss - personal guide

We loved our guide and we gave him a name. So much history and stories.

Fabulous App

Four of us took the Hana Highway. When I paid $9.99 for the app my fellow travelers were skeptical. Within minutes they were convinced of the value. The narrator was great. We also learned some of Hawaii’s history and the sad story of how Hawaii was annexed by the US. The best line was when the narrator said “I just an app. I just suggesting places to stop.”
