GyPSy Guide GPS driving tour of the Road to Hana is an excellent way to enjoy a sightseeing trip on Maui’s most famous drive. There are 140+ audio points that play automatically, featuring what to see, stories, tips and advice. All the benefits of a guided tour, the freedom to drive yourself. TOUR GUIDE AS YOU DRIVE THE ROAD TO HANA 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. No cell network signal is needed while driving. All you have to do is drive, listen and decide which places you want to stop at (and those you might decide to skip). Our tour guides have created an insightful and entertaining tour for the Road to Hana on Maui. 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. PLAYS AUTOMATICALLY 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. GREAT VALUE 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. WORKS OFFLINE 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 This tour includes the most popular sightseeing stops and many more: 1) Ho'okipa Beach Park 2) Ke'anae 3) Wai'anapanapa Park 4) Hana 5) Hamoa Beach 6) Wailua Falls 7) Seven Sacred Pools at Kipahulu plus many more great scenic stops. We recommend giving yourself a full day to drive the Road to Hana and start as early as you can. The tour is structured so that we concentrate on sightseeing as we drive towards Hana. Most people want to drive back without stopping, so we have all different commentary and stories for the drive back that will entertain you and pass the time more quickly. Beware of suggestions that recommend going “the back way”. You are most likely going to be in a rental car. All the major rental car companies prohibit their cars being taken on the “back side” of Haleakala. NOTES 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.

  • Such an amazing journey!!!

    The narrator did such a great job and the app was on point for the entire tour!!
  • Great app

    By Pestudoc
    We used this app on the Road to Hāna yesterday. It was fun to use and we loved the information it provided. My son, age 8, really loved the history of the way back (though I am glad he didn’t ask for clarification on some of the adult type information-adultery, prostitution, etc. We would definitely try to seek this app out for other trips.
  • Best Tour App!

    This is the best tour app we’ve ever used!! If you plan on driving to Hana, Gypsy is the way to go! Great commentary from the guide (we dubbed ‘Papa Hana’), useful direction and advice on what to see and timing to visit places to ensure you fit the most from your bucket list.
  • Highly recommend!

    By Update please
    This app was awesome and we would highly recommend. GPS and narration worked without hitch...even when we backtracked. Remember to bring along a charging cable or a battery charger — your device will be hard at work the entire day!
  • Wouldn’t have been the same without it!

    We used this app to drive the road to Hana and I can tell you, we wouldn’t have known half the places to stop and would have wasted so much time doing things that weren’t worth it. Things to see on the road to Hana are not well marked and he throws in fun facts about things in towns and even on private property. The stories alone are worth the money, and we were very entertained and enlightened on the way back. Highly recommend!!!!!

    I have reviews on Kauai and Maui so I won’t go on here, but this is an absolute must have. It made our drive of Hana 10x easier and we learned a lot about Hawai’i itself with the informative commentary. So glad we didn’t book group tours, this app made our trip better, period.
  • Perfect day

  • Best $6 I spent in Maui

    By lizsatt22
    AWESOME app!! The guide told us best places to stop on the road to Hana, as well as stood we could do if time allowed, and have some awesome tips and history into Hawaiian culture. Definitely recommended!
  • Don’t drive Hana without it!

    By littlebookpage
    My husband and I have driven the road to Hana before without Gypsy Guide - never again! Gypsy Guide made the trip as stress free as possible with 620 hairpin turns can. It was fun and entertaining and extreamly accurate! We didn’t miss anything we wanted to see and appreciated the honesty of the guide. What stops were important to see and what were “missable”. Totally worth the $5.99!!!
