GyPSy Guide GPS driving tour of Kauai is an excellent way to enjoy a sightseeing trip to explore the entire island. There are 280+ 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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

Will Not Leave Home Without it!!!

We first heard about GyPSy Guide when we went from Banff to Jasoer. We found it incredibly informative and entertaining. So on our first trip to Hawaii, I got the island package and first used it on Kauai. I really can’t say enough superlative words about the app. It was obvious on the road to Jasper how it worked because there was only one road, but it worked just as beautifully with choices. “Fred” helped us choose where to go, gave us lots of information about the history, culture, geology, and flora/fauna and weather. It tells you what is a must see and what to do or pass up depending on time. He speaks with humor and has a good voice. I like how he reminds of previous stories and continues them at various points. It was great for our 2 days on Oahu and then the 7 days on the Big Island. “Fred” even did a great job of explaining not only what to see in Volcano National Park and how to use our limited time wisely, but also about the important geology, history and biology related to the park.

I seriously will purchase every single one available for every road trip or vacation we do from now on!!!!

We heard about Gypsy on Cruise Critic where it was highly rated. As the driver, I appreciated getting early warnings for turns, stops etc. Also great to have the description of a point-of-interest long enough beforehand to decide whether or not to stop in. Lots of opportunity to partake or pass by and Gypsy adapts to your choices.

Like other reviewers, it greatly enhanced or visit. We saw great waterfalls and other highlights that otherwise would have been overlookeed. We enjoyed the stories in between stops and liked the narrator’s voice and personality.

We had no glitches in using it. I also like that I can play back the stories months later using the preview mode. I would definitely purchase more Gypsy. If I had known it was this good, I would also have gotten the Oahu edition too. Well done devs! I’ll be looking for more locales to try out.

Great app

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.
