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? We’ve suggest dividing Maui into 5 different areas - all are included. ROAD TO HANA • Hooikipa Park • Twin Falls • Keanae Peninsular • Wai’anapanapa Park • Hana • Wailua Falls • 'Sacred' Pools of Ohe’o HALEAKALA • Pukalani • Makawao • Upcountry • Haleakala Crater (National Park) WEST MAUI • Lahaina • 8-mile Lookout • Ka’anapali • Kapalua • DT Fleming Beach Park • Honolua Bay • Nakalele Blowhole SOUTH MAUI • Kihei and beaches • Wailea • Polo Beach Turtle Town • Makena – Big Beach and Little Beach • La Perouse Bay IAO VALLEY • Iao Needle • Kepaniwai Park • Wailuku • Ma’alaea Bay and Aquarium BATTERY USAGE: ++ Continued use of GPS/Location Services in the background increases battery usage.

A must have when exploring Maui!
My friend and I traveled around Maui for 4 days with the help of this app! Our guide who we ended up calling “Uncle Ted” by the end of trip, gave us so many good tips including where to stop to get a view of waterfalls, eat cheap local food along the road to Hana, and more! I def recommend getting this app!
The app was perfect for our sightseeing in Hawaii. Interesting commentary and excellent guidance. The man doing the talking does a great job. Use of GPS in remote areas was flawless. Our first experience with Gypsy was when we toured Arches National Park so we were thrilled to see that there was a Hawaii version as well.
Amazing App!!!!!! I didn’t want to see this beautiful trail with anyone but my hubby. You literally feel like you have a personal guided tour with no one physically there!! We saw everything we wanted to see with expert directions along with info about this historic and beautiful trail! You HAVE to get this if you are on the road to Hana!!!
Definitely worth the $10. We stopped and saw many things that we never even would have known existed and got great stories and commentary driving all over the island. Highly recommend getting the guide for all of Maui and not just the road to Hana.
The GyPSy Maui app has provided us with outstanding direction, informative suggestions, hints and tips all with a touch of humor. The narrations are very well written, excellently timed and delivered with expertise. If you are looking for some help with what to do and curious about the history of Maui then this app is for you.
Loved this guide. Very helpful for my 3rd trip to Maui. Got to see more using the app than On prior trips due to the app. Host is pleasant and fun and not boring. Info was very useful. I would give it 4.5 stars but that was not an option so I picked 4. The half star off was due to one problem with the Ching Pond swimming hole advice. We could not find the path down to the pond despot following his instructions and then finally a local told us that the pond was not safe to swim in so we left disappointed. We used the guide for road to Hana, Haleakala, West Maui and central Maui. The only trip we could not make time for was Iao Valley. Awesome app. Highly recommended!
You would not enjoy the trip without this app. It’s like having a tour guide in your car with you. FANTASTIC!!👍🏻👍🏻
This tour made maui absolutely magical. We saw and learned so much. We are in our early 30s and still loved it. It’s a must.
Great app , loved it , it really was so interesting and learned so much
