GyPSy Guide GPS driving tour of the Road to Hana is an excellent way to enjoy a sightseeing trip on Maui’s most famous drive. There are 140+ audio points that play automatically, featuring what to see, stories, tips and advice. All the benefits of a guided tour, the freedom to drive yourself. TOUR GUIDE AS YOU DRIVE THE ROAD TO HANA If you like driving yourself when you go sightseeing, GyPSy Guide™ tour apps allow you to enjoy a guided tour experience while remaining totally independent. By driving yourself, you'll be able to get from place to place faster, see more things and not be tied to anyone else's schedule. DON'T MISS OUT ON THE BEST SIGHTS AND STORIES The tour apps use your device’s location abilities to play the commentary AUTOMATICALLY. No cell network signal is needed while driving. All you have to do is drive, listen and decide which places you want to stop at (and those you might decide to skip). Our tour guides have created an insightful and entertaining tour for the Road to Hana on Maui. We’ll recommend the best places to experience along the way and some great locations that most visitors will drive by. There’s so much to see and do, GyPSy will help you prioritize what suits you best and make sure you don’t miss a thing. PLAYS AUTOMATICALLY GyPSy Guide knows where you are and which direction you are heading, and plays commentary automatically about the things you are seeing, plus stories and tips and advice. EXPLORE LIKE A LOCAL It’s just like having a local friend to show you around. And that friend just happens to be a professional tour guide. GREAT VALUE The same information you would get on a bus tour or from a guide book, for just a fraction of the price. And you control the itinerary and schedule. WORKS OFFLINE No data, cellular or even wireless network connection needed while touring. Download over Wi-Fi before you tour. Anyone can use them with no need for roaming data – even visiting from another country. DRIVING TOUR ROUTE This tour includes the most popular sightseeing stops and many more: 1) Ho'okipa Beach Park 2) Ke'anae 3) Wai'anapanapa Park 4) Hana 5) Hamoa Beach 6) Wailua Falls 7) Seven Sacred Pools at Kipahulu plus many more great scenic stops. We recommend giving yourself a full day to drive the Road to Hana and start as early as you can. The tour is structured so that we concentrate on sightseeing as we drive towards Hana. Most people want to drive back without stopping, so we have all different commentary and stories for the drive back that will entertain you and pass the time more quickly. Beware of suggestions that recommend going “the back way”. You are most likely going to be in a rental car. All the major rental car companies prohibit their cars being taken on the “back side” of Haleakala. NOTES Download the app on Wi-Fi from your network at home or use any free Wi-Fi network. Because the app is filled with audio commentary and maps, its larger than "normal" apps. Many phone/data networks may block the download because of size - so its important to download over a Wi-Fi network. ++ Continued use of GPS running in the background increases battery usage - we strongly recommend taking a cigarette style (DC outlet) car charger. This is much better than simply plugging into the USB port in a vehicle. ** iPad users - please note that WiFi-only iPads will not activate the commentary automatically. Any iPhone or network-capable iPad (WiFi + Cellular - whether you have a network connection or not) will work just fine.

  • Best Tour App

    By Mimi Bevington
    I am a frequent traveler and have used many different apps. The Gypsy Tour App is by far my favorite!
  • Concept works but execution failed

    By eskibear
    Love the concept. Texted the app before we started the route. Everything was going great until the first stop where I unplugged the phone and took it with me when we ventured out. Then when I come back, the GPS was still tracking me but the audio never played when we hit the next audio market. It was very frustrating. Tried to call customer service and there was no phone signal. Reboot the phone completely and it worked again. That seems to be the fix but then that means I had to keep doing that each time I come back to the car from each stop. Another major problem is that the guide’s opinion is highly biased toward the last stop beyond Hana. Basically it will tell you that everything is not worth it to see. I rather have a more objective narrator to tell me what will I see at each landmark, what level of efforts it takes to hike or walk there, ease of parking, and let the users decide base on their interest and physical abilities (traveling with kids, etc). For example, one of the gem I found was the restroom stop at mile 22. It was a small waterfall that took very little efforts to get to. Perfect for people with young kids but was NOT recommended by the guide. Good thing I read an article about this because it was the highlight for my elementary school age kids. On and all, if I had to do it again, I would have purchased another app because of the constant reboot required (very frustrating and missed out on numerous audio markers) and the lack of objective information.
  • Incredible Road to Hana tour

    By Mr. HauiMaui
    Commentary is detailed and accurate, very entertaining too. We were very impressed with the detailed knowledge of all the stops, and the history of Hawaii on the way back. Would recommend this to anyone who is looking to take the road to Hana, there’s no way you could go wrong with this app.
  • Must have for the drive

    By Lcurry5
    I don’t write reviews, but when I do, it’s this one. A+ all around. Really it’s that good, the developers have made a masterpiece. Kudos to the team!
  • Excellent App!

    By Tangoesq
    I love the accuracy of this app and how it’s like having a tour guide in your car. I especially loved the History of Hawaii content on your drive back down the reload to Hana. I recommend this app to all my friends who visit Maui. Will definitely check out the other apps for other drives in the future.
  • Amazing Guidance With Interesting History

    By ColtonMary
    Loved this app. So easy to use and made our journey entertaining and stress free. I like how he gives you every option of places to stop but also let’s you know of the must-sees, especially if you are only going for one day. Road back was great and we enjoyed learning the history driving back. We loved going back the way we came as it was super easy.
  • The best!

    By Nettie1259
    This was so great-starts out a little cheesy but was the absolute best to have to manage them for the day and enjoy the highlights of the drive without thinking. I cannot imagine making this drive trying to look at a book and mileage on the odometer- this made the drive so easy and enjoyable.
  • Great way to spend the day

    By Dr. Tye
    We really enjoyed this tour. It went at a very comfortable pace while we were driving and kept us engaged. For only $7, I HIGHLY recommend this tour!!!!
  • Amazing App

    This app was definitely worth the purchase. Prior to purchasing we wrote down everything we wanted to do on the road to Hana. We would’ve undoubtedly missed some key stops and turns without this app. The history was an added bonus! Super easy to use and guide us along. Great job!
