Tours work offline, using free GPS signal and location services, so no data roaming, network, or wifi is required while touring. Visit www.gypsyguide.com 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: 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. 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.

  • A MUST HAVE

    This App made all the difference in our trip to Maui. So much information delivered in a humorous way! It felt like we had a personal guide in the vehicle with us. So many places that we would have never seen if not for the app. Thank you to the developers! If you are going to Maui- this is a must have. Put it on your Bluetooth- it makes it nice for others in the car.
  • Pretty Good

    Pretty good app for a person who has never been to Hawaii and wants to drive to Hana on their own. We would have skipped the 3rd of his 5 top choices though. Also, I wish we would’ve know about the cool selection of food trucks or little small businesses that are right pass halfway to Hana. We are there and the food was not great, then we got to the food park and it all smelled and looked so good. I feel like there were some stops that were overlooked too if you are going the whole way and have the time to stop a bunch like we did. Overall it was worth the $10 to spend on it though.

  • Best Deal

    This was indeed the best deal we had on our Hawaii trip. We just drove around every corner of Maui and enjoyed every minute of it with this tour guide app. The directions are very accurate. It was fun listening to his narration at your convenience. It’s a complete guide including history, places to visit & places to eat. Highly recommended!
  • This app is with every penny

    We really enjoyed having our very own tour guide in the car with us! The accuracy of where we were and what we were seeing was amazing. We only wish we’d discovered it sooner. It made us want to stay longer so we could explore places we didn’t have a chance to go so we could hear about it at the same time. Going to look to see if there’s one for Oahu now.
  • Must have app! I would have paid $100 for it!

    This app is amazing. It is like having a close friend and resident expert along for the ride. The commentary is insightful. This was such a great help and genuinely enhanced our tour of the island. I can’t remember the last time I was this excited about an app.
  • Great App!

    I’ve never written a review of an app before, but this one was amazing. I was originally looking for an app to use on the Road to Hana and decided to purchase the whole Maui tour instead (since it was only a few dollars more). It worked beautifully - it lead us to some great locations on the Road to Hana, including a couple of minor detours off of the road that became our favorites. The app was accurate and on your back from the Road to Hana reviewed some interesting history. We used it on other parts of Maui as well and it worked great. We saw a small animal running around and couldn’t figure out what it was - at one point the app even told us that! lol. Well worth the money - glad we purchased it.
  • Highly recommend

    Very informational and fun. Love the automatic GPS location announcements. If you’re a first time visitor, or looking for a bit more history and ‘undiscovered’ recommendations, this app is for you! It does repeat if you drive the same path over and over, for example out of your resort, but we learned to just turn it on when we were approaching a turnoff/start to a trek. This is so great we just purchased it for the big island!
  • Fantastic App- invaluable!!

    For $10, we learned SO MUCH about the Hawai’ian culture. He kept the driving interesting. We drove the entire island and then some, so we hit most of his commentary and it was honestly better than any tour guide. Bonus: no need to tip or deal with waiting for other guests on a bus. Highly recommend.
  • Background Audio Mode?

    By JustinDSN
    The app seems to not play audio when the screen is shut off. I had to keep the app in the foreground and not lock the phone. I would have preferred to lock the phone to let the screen power down, so phones battery and power consumption would be less. Let me know if the app supports this! Justin
