GyPSy Guide’s narrated driving tour for Grand Canyon South National Park is an excellent way to enjoy all the benefits of a guided tour while you explore at your own pace. There are 190+ audio points that play automatically along the tour route, 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 commentary and tips & advice. It’s Just Like Having a Tour Guide in Your Car™ WHAT TO EXPECT: On the 1 – 1.5hr drive towards the Grand Canyon South Rim, listen to fascinating stories and a plan for exploring the Park. We’ll make a quick geology recap interesting, share the achievements of a woman who shined in the male dominated field of architecture, tell you about some of the local wildlife, recount the drama of some unscrupulous entrepreneurs and direct you to where you can learn more about local Native American tribes. Once inside the Park, we tour straight to the best viewpoints of Mather and Yavapai on a loop around Grand Canyon Village. Then our drive extends along Desert View Drive, to the many recommended viewpoints including Grandview, Lipan, Duck Rock, culminating with a visit to Desert View Watchtower. The tour officially starts and ends at Williams, Flagstaff or Cameron. Or you can join and pick up the commentary anywhere along the route. Narration will automatically trigger at the next commentary point. WHAT YOU’LL SEE: Highlights along the tour route include • Grand Canyon South Village • Mather Point • Lipan Point • Desert View Drive • Yavapai Point • Duck Rock • Grandview Point • Tusayan Ruins & Museum • Desert View Watchtower • Route 66 Town of Williams • San Francisco Peaks • Little Colorado River Gorge • Chapel of the Holy Dove Don't miss out on the best stops and stories. Enhance your National Park experience with our audio driving tours. 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 app

    By TMStanek
    I first used this app while in Maui. It’s like having a very well traveled friend in the car with you. This time I was at the Grand Canyon. It works perfectly with or without cell service. It would be great if there was one for every National Park. Look forward to using it any chance I get. I wish all apps worked this well. Thanks again for a great guide on my trip.
  • Superb! Nice work GyPSy Guides!

    By Wparkin
    Just used the Grand Canyon guide yesterday, and LOVED it! We have previously used the Arches and Canyonlands National Parks guides, and found all of them FANTASTIC! We stayed at an RV Park in Flagstaff, and loved how the tour started and ended right in town! It’s like having our own tour guide sitting in the back seat! Besides the tips on where to stop, and what to look at, we really enjoyed the geology and history stories included in the narration. We’re on the road full time (2 years now), so will be sure to use GyPSy guides again in the future! Five stars!! 👍
  • Great Entertainment

    By Travelin' buddies
    Our narrator-who we named Bob-did fantastic job of entertaining us on an otherwise uneventful drive from Flagstaff to the park and back. The drive through the park itself was like having a forest ranger in the back seat announcing points of interest and history that would have otherwise been missed. Highly recommend!
  • Second time we have used gypsy ..

    By Teeupdown
    And there will be more- we first used your app when we climbed Haleakala and we just used it again during our visit to the Grand Canyon.. what can I say besides these guides added so much to our visits?! - we have 2 sons ( 10 & 12) and we all got so much out of the perfectly timed / well-researched insights, information, tidbits, and stories. Without gypsy, we would have missed so much along the way and we would not have known the significance of certain places, topography, geography, geology, vistas, etc. seriously, I can’t say enough - if this easy-to-use App is available on your specific trip, you’d be crazy not to use it !!!
  • Best $ we ever spent on a tour!

    By Jrhugh50
    This was by far the best money we ever spent on a tour. There are excellent descriptions of the sites and good directions for arrival and leaving each of the areas. Highly recommended.
  • So great!

    By Heywhattyaknow
    My only suggestion is that we have a way to go back and hit dots we missed. We joined late and would have liked to get the commentary we missed. Very interesting!
  • Great app!

    By Ratkiller78
    Your own personal tour guide with lots of extra information about things you’re seeing. Really worth having and because we liked it so much, we used the app for other parks we are visiting in our 2 week “out west” vacay. Kids liked it too!
  • Incredible

    By Robbie R31
    Incredible incredible incredible!!!! We used this app on our drive from Flagstaff to the south rim of the Grand Canyon! The app picked up our location immediately and provided entertainment and info all the way to, during our time in the park, and all the way back from the Grand Canyon! I would love to see them expand to many other trips (including driving Route 66). Hands down the best app I’ve ever purchased!!!!
  • We Love Gypsy Guide!!!

    By kamperdad71
    My family has now used Gypsy Guide for Yellowstone, Tetons, Zion, Bryce, and Grand Canyon. We always enjoy listening to the stories and educational facts that are shared. We have also found some great hidden gems thanks to the app. We always Hate when he signs off and we must drive on without his commentary. (I type as we leave Grand Canyon and head eastbound on Route 66). Route 66 would be an awesome addition to the collection!
  • Well worth the cost!

    By thehords
    Extremely helpful to first time visitors to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon! It helped us get familiar with surroundings more quickly, be more prepared for waits, find parking, and nice tips for what to see before we left. Great history on the hour long drives to and from the Canyon, too. Thanks!
