TOUR GUIDE AS YOU DRIVE THE ROCKIES
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. All you have to do is drive, listen and decide which places you want to stop at. Our tour guides have created insightful and entertaining tours of the Rockies. We’ll recommend the best places to see and some great locations that most visitors don't get to see.
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.

CANADIAN ROCKIES APP BUNDLE
This tour is a part of a set of tour apps by GyPSy Guide to explore the Canadian Rockies National Parks. Other tours in the series include:
* Banff Townsite Tour
* Banff Lake Louise Yolo
* Icefields Parkway
* And Calgary to Banff (Free)
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.
* Updated tour content.
* Tour will now keep playing in the background even if you use other apps.
* Tour will also keep playing if you turn the screen off (not shut down of course!) and will help save battery if you do not have a cigarette lighter-style of car charger with you.
* You can play your own music in the background and the tour commentary will decease music volume to play audio commentary.
Ratings and Reviews
The best Apps I’ve ever purchased!
My wife and I recently took a road trip to the Tetons, Glacier, Banff, the Icefields and Glacier. My wife meticulously documents what she wants to see when we’re traveling and I try to accommodate her but sometimes fail. These GyPSy guides not only covered everything she wanted to see but often took us to places she had no idea she wanted see but loved after we visited. The tours around Banff and along the Icefields Parkway were especially informative and interesting and I highly recommend you download the apps for these areas if you’re planning on visiting these areas.

Hi Damnfingers We love hearing when we've enhanced someone's vacation, so thanks for the review. Looks like we'll have to keep adding new locations for your next set of travels! #gypsyguide
We used the Banff and Icefields guide and we enjoyed them more than Jasper. This narrator wasn't as personal and sounded like he was reading from a script. That being said, we are glad we used it anyway to know the best places to stop along the route.
Uodate: glad to hear that you updated tour guide for Jasper.....now the app is PERFECT!!!

Hi Ronvalen, thanks for your feedback. The Jasper tour has now been updated (this summer) with new content and our favourite narrator. GG
GyPSy was fantastic in learning about the areas we drove through and destinations we went to. Makes the drives more entertaining and educational while guiding you to some of the prettiest places on the planet.
