5) Upheaval Dome
6) Aztec Butte

You can join the tour from Moab or anywhere along the route from campgrounds and RV parks.

## This tour does not include the Needles section, which is located 60 miles to the south.


Because the app is filled with audio commentary and maps, its larger than "normal" apps. If you have a limited data plan, its recommended to download over a WiFi 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.

Enjoyed by travelers who prefer to set their own pace and itinerary on vacation, but enjoy a fun, informative and educational guided experience.

Well worth it.

This was great. We had no idea what to expect in the park. We were very happy with the way it was all put together. The only problem was we
Couldn’t tell if it was running when we got back in the car till we hit a audio point. Just made sure app was open after we got back into the car. Wish everyone knew about the app that was in the park. I could hear people asking/talking about things in the park that we knew the answers because of the app.

Really enjoyable audio tour

Ran across this app in a local paper while we were figuring out things to do in Moab. This was a really enjoyable audio tour and the narration is excellent. You usually get monotone narrators with audio tours, but this was very well read. The tour follows your location and is perfectly timed. The tour also includes very interesting facts about the area and local legends. I would definitely recommend using these for all national parks tours (or at least the ones that are available).

Awesome app

Tours were too expensive, terribly time limited and at the mercy of the leader’s personality style. GyPSy Guide solves all those problems with affordability, perfect timing and a delightful, vetted, well informed guide. The app led me to the right places, told me what to expect at each stop and fed me wonderful, compelling historical and geological facts. I LOVE this app and can’t wait until all the national parks are available online. I am a grandmother making the trek alone. This is the way to travel.
