DRIVING TOUR ROUTE
Start the tour from either Williams or Flagstaff, Arizona. Or if you are already in the Park, you can join anywhere along the route. If you are arriving from north, on Highway 89, you can join the tour at Cameron, Az.
The tour includes the most popular sightseeing locations and much more:
1) Grand Canyon Village
2) Mather and Yaki Point
3) Desert View Drive
4) Desert View Watchtower
5) Little Colorado River
6) Routes driving towards and away from the park
The tour is designed that if you are accessing the Park from Williams, Flagstaff or Cameron, you will hear stories and tips and advice about what to see and do as you drive towards the Park. The tour tells you about the best places to visit while inside the Park. As you leave, the commentary continues with lots of entertaining stories as you drive back to Williams and Flagstaff.
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. It's 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
Extremely well done app with great content
Everything about this app went well beyond our expectations. We visited the Grand Canyon from Sedona via Williams today. The audio had our group of 3 adults and 2 children captivated and looking forward to each new clip. My 4 and 7 year old were engaged throughout the drive and asked to turn it back on on the drive back. The content was polished and interesting to all ages, and the narrator was perfect. Our kids didn’t ask for their iPads the entire trip and learned a ton of cool facts! We were so delighted to see the audio content matching up with our surroundings - it almost felt like we had a tour guide with us in our car. I was skeptical, but the app worked without a hiccup throughout our entire trip. The interface is very well done, simple, friendly, and intuitive. After the trip, everyone wanted to know what other tours were available, and we look forward to trying them when we get the chance!
Developer Response ,
Thanks hoverboarder. Always happy to hear we can capture the attention of kids. Hope to be touring with you in some of our new destinations soon too. #gypsyguide
Our family really enjoyed this guide. It was informative, taught us so much that we would have never have known. We had visited this area before without Gypsy guide and feel we missed so much . This gps guide was right on target so you never missed a turn or an opportunity to explore.
Nice tour , actually told us to look out for Elk at one point and I’ll be if there wasn’t one outside our window, timing was spot on entire tour, voice was lively, corny jokes but non the less lively, map wasn’t the best in that I had to manually zoom or it would have been 5 stars
