TOUR GUIDE FOR SCENIC DRIVES ON KAUAI
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 an insightful and entertaining tour of Kauai. We’ll recommend the best places to experience and some great locations that most visitors will drive by.
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.
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.
DRIVING TOUR ROUTE
The tour has commentary everywhere on the island that you will want to explore. We recommend dividing the island into at least 2 driving days.
1) North and Eastern Kauai. This half of the island tours through the famous northern beach and resort areas of Hanalei and Princeville. The tour continues all the way to the end of the road at Ke’e Beach. Between Princeville and Lihue we’ll explore many fine beaches and the vibrant town of Kapa’a.
2) South and Western Kauai. The resort area of Poipu is home to south shore's best beaches and the island’s most famous blowhole. Drive further for the artsy town of Hanapepe. From historic Waimea, we travel up Kauai’s volcanic mountains to the superb Waimea Canyon and continue to the awe-inspiring viewpoints of Koke’e Park perched above the Na Pali Cost.
There’s much more to see as we drive and GyPSy will be you very own tour guide all the way.
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.

Ratings and Reviews
This was a real find and worth every penny. The positioning worked perfectly with information coming on at the right time, every time. History and background information was wonderful, and we often turned on "Mr. Kauai" even though we had been on the same road before. If you are touring Kauai, get this app. You won't be disappointed.
As already noted, there were two places where there was an echo (a double transmission on top of each other), but that was a minor flaw, and we could still understand what was being said. If we go to the other islands, this app will be downloaded before we go. Very useful.
I don’t usually take the time to write reviews, but I have to say that buying this app was one of the best decisions I made in Kauai. When you drive around, the app detects where you are and gives expert advice and entertainment. It tells about the sites, and about the history of the islands in general and Kauai in particular. We saw many things and learned a great deal more than we would have otherwise. It added to our enjoyment of a wonderful vacation. The narrator is pleasant and engaging. Everyone who drives in Kauai should buy this app.

Mahalo Marty. Glad we were able to enhance your visit to Kauai and you learnt a little more beyond how beautiful the islands are. Love to see you back again in Hawaii, relaxing, exploring & learning! #gypsyguide
Informative, entertaining, and accurate directions
Glad we found this app recommendation in one of the many brochures we picked up on Kaua‘i when we arrived. Accurate directions to all of the major sights while we were driving around the island along with information about the sights, history of the island, some dining and foods to try at different locations as you approached different areas, and some entertainment jokes and quotes. Very well and easy to use app that made our stay on Kauai and getting around much easier.
