It’s Just Like Having a Tour Guide in Your Car™ WHAT TO EXPECT: Though Maui is easily driveable and accessible, you will want to take your time and explore all corners of this diversely beautiful island paradise. It a place like no other where in a day you can be swimming with turtles, or hiking the moonscape at the top of an extinct volcano, or absorb the refreshing mist of a rainforest waterfall. For the easiest possible experience, the entire island has tour commentary. All you have to drive, and the tour will transition automatically as you move from one section of the island to another. You simply drive, listen to the commentary and make decisions the places that interest you the most, just like have a local friend to show you around. Don’t know where to begin?

I can’t give this app enough stars… If there was a 5000*limit I would give it 10,000!I used the gypsy guide for my trip to Hawaii. It was a lifesaver! So accurate in every detail. So informative. So easy to use! Save your money on expensive tours. Rent a car and download the gypsy guide app !
The app did not worked, we could not get connected.
We really enjoyed the app. Excellent information.
Mainly used this app for Road to Hana, Lahaina to Haleakala summit and for parts of Makawao. Made the experience that much better and well worth the $. Do not forget to download this app before visiting Maui!
I am floored by how much fun and interactive this app was on our trip! I want one for my everyday drives now that I am home. I cannot say enough good things about it! (The narration as we drove to the airport gave us a chuckle!) So amazing and such an added value to our vacation!
We saw in another review, the user named the tour guide. Our family named him Toddson Dukelely (yes there is a story behind that). This app was super relevant and when plugged into the Car Play app in the rental car, he just piped in with his stories and instructions as we drove. This app definitely enhanced our trip and was very informative about the entire island and it’s history. Worth purchasing, no doubt!
We just used this app for about 8 hours driving the road to Hana and I have to say this was the best money spent! It was like he was in the car. When we wondered about the furry critters running around, the narrator started talking about the mongooses. Very helpful, very entertaining, very much worth the money! If you don’t get it, you’re loss.
This app was a total game changer. Informative and entertaining. We did the Road to Hana and lost cell service right away. The app connects through your GPS so it worked the entire drive there and back. I would use this app for any drive, well worth the money.
It is like having a wonderful friend in the car with you making the journey better! The advice and tips, along with the history of Maui and Hawaii make this a must have for any trip to Maui!!! Highly recommend!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the commentary. We would have been lost without GyPsy Guide. We loved that the history of Hawaii was included on the way back. Thank you so much for guiding us through our Road to Hanna! Even without internet, we were never lost!!
