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.


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.


It’s just like having a local friend to show you around. And that friend just happens to be a professional tour guide.


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.


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.


This tour includes the most popular sightseeing stops and many more:

1) Pukalani
2) Makawao
3) Hosmer's Grove
4) Kalahaku Lookout
5) Haleakala Summit and Crater
6) Plus many more scenic viewpoints

We recommend giving yourself at least a 1/2 day to drive the Haleakala Tour.

If you are planning to visit for sunrise, a reservation with the national park is required and visitor numbers are controlled. At other times of the day, no reservation is required but there is a fee to enter the national park.

If you drive to the end of the Road to Hana, the national park pass is good for entrance to both the summit and the Kipahulu section of the park.


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.


GyPSy Guide™ produce award winning audio tours along scenic drives around the world. Enjoyed by travelers who prefer to set their own pace and itinerary on vacation, but enjoy a fun, informative and educational guided experience. Our goal is to provide a great introduction to the region and perhaps inspire you to learn more and return. None of our apps include paid advertising or placements for benefit.

Like having a personal tour guide


This app is absolutely incredible. The family and I took road trips to Hana and Haleakala and decided to download these apps. The step-by-step Tour guiding, complete with GPS tracking was absolutely amazing. The accuracy is unbelievable, as the narrator continually gives information on where to stop that we otherwise would never have known. You don't have to look at a map, as even with no cell service it knew exactly where we were. The added cultural and historical information really enriched the drives. Better than the CD's sold around the island, this is well worth the price. I would give it six stars if I could.

Good guide


I found this app useful. Made the trip to the top of the mountain much more enjoyable and relaxing. I bought it after we used the counterpart app on the road to Hana (which was indispensable) the guides voice on Road to Hana was very friendly. By the end of the trip he was like a pal. I was looking forward to another trip with my virtual bud but this one is narrated by a woman who was ok. One criticism is the app should include some "before you go" tips. No sense getting on the road and then learning you need a sweatshirt. If I go back to Maui I would def use the rest of these tours.

Excellent app!


This app is a must if you are visiting Haleakala. We read about it online last night and purchased in preparation for our journey today with our 2 kids. It was sooo worth it. We liked the narrator who gave good info with a sense a humor without being corny. The gps tracking feature was awesome. It was like having a tour guide in the car with us! Just get it!
