TOUR GUIDE AS YOU DRIVE AROUND YOSEMITE
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 Yosemite. 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. Anyone can use them with no need for roaming data – even visiting from another country.
DRIVING TOUR ROUTE
The tour includes the most popular sightseeing stops and many more:
1) Yosemite Falls
2) Glacier Point
3) Giant Sequoia Groves
4) El Capitan
5) Bridalveil Falls
6) Tioga Road
7) Hetch Hetchy
8) Many other viewpoints and park attractions
GyPSy Guide has commentary on every major road in the Park.
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.
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
Tour guide in your pocket
Right from the approach to Yosemite this app started giving us background and information about the formation of Yosemite. Not only does it include information on the park and sites, but driving clues on lane changes and upcoming decisions, what you do and do not want to miss. The information contained was SO HELPFUL for our first time experience. We will definitely look for this app at other locations!!
BE AWARE: This is a car app ONLY ... as we took it on a hike nearby a roadway and it did not pick up on the signals for information. There is no way to kick off information (that we found) but maybe the developers can add this option.
The PERFECT App!
We have been to Yosemite a number of times but this guide completely changed our experience. It helps point you towards things you must see and others that you may not have realized existed. It gives you real time approach (through GPS) to parking so that you don't miss a parking lot and gives you direct pointers on where to spot iconic landmarks. Great for pictures! It also gives you amazing hiking tips including what to expect for experience levels. In between guided points, he provides fillers with Yosemite history tidbits. Unquestionably the best app I have ever had for guided travel! Thank you!
Great GPS Guided Tour of Yosemite
I've been to Yosemite several times, but my husband of 72 years had last been here with his family when he was a child. I found this app to give him an audible experience along with our drive through. It's wonderful! Many helpful directives some of the iconic places in the park and entertaining historic tidbits between stops.
The only thing is the narrators self promoting discussions of his publications - but you can't blame the guy for shameless plugs on his own app! 😏
Having said that, we thoroughly appreciated this app and will definitely use it again for another destination!
Developer Response ,
Glad you enjoyed the tour. Yes, at the end of the tour we do tell our customers about the other tours that we have in the region and in further away destinations. We thought the delivery of that was quite light-hearted - hope you didn't find it too imposing on your enjoyment!
