It’s Just Like Having a Tour Guide in Your Car™
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Rocky Mountain National Park boasts the very best of what Colorado and the Rocky Mountains has to offer: unbelievably scenic mountains, awesome hiking and superb wildlife viewing. But perhaps the most memorable aspect of the Park is that it was created with the driving visitor in mind.
Nowhere else in the country can you drive a scenic route that brings you above the treeline and into the alpine tundra for 11 miles, peaking at altitudes over 12,000 feet.
Or you may want to follow the historic route that the earliest visitors drove in their Stanley Steamer or Model T’s on the Old Fall River Road. There are many scenic viewpoints including Rainbow Curve Outlook and Mushroom Rocks Overlook along the driving route, and easy, accessible trails at Sprague and Bear Lakes.
Hear all about the “Father of Rocky Mountain National Park” and the other influential characters who fought and invested heavily to preserve this area.
But many visitors are drawn by the excellent wildlife watching opportunities. Especially during the Fall rut when male bull elk and moose are fending off rivals, vocally and physically. We’ll point out the best locations to keep watch and increase your chances.
This is a truly unique experience that has thrilled drivers and passengers since the 1920s.
The tour officially starts and ends close to each entrance of the Park; Beaver Meadows and Fall River from Estes Park, and Grand Lake from the West. Or you can join and pick up the commentary anywhere along the route. Narration will automatically trigger at the next commentary point.

Fantastic and worth the money!
This was my first trip to Colorado and to the National Park. I loved that the app automatically narrated as we approached each notable area. I also appreciated that as we drove to Bear Lake then back out that same way, the narration told us different info at the same points of interest. It does that through the entire park. So if you drive from one end to the other, then back that way again, you get even more information! The narrator’s voice is perfect as well as the humor. Entirely family friendly.
We had a GoPro camera attached to the windshield and recording our entire drive through the park. It was so cool to watch our video and clearly hear the narration once we got home.
This is not only a great accompaniment while in the park but helped us create a wonderful keepsake for years to come.
We will definitely use this app for future tours! Great job!
Worth every cent
I’ve had an iPhone since their release and this is the first review I’ve feeler compelled to write. A friend recommended the app and I was a bit doubtful at first due to the number of free apps out there. Wow, was this app amazing. It was like having a personal tour guide! Not only did it run off of GPS when there was no reception, gave us directions before turns with options on which way went where, but also had all sorts of insightful information along the trip. To top it off it was a very calming voice while driving around precarious roads, and the sense of humor was appreciated. Well done and looking forward to more adventures with Gypse
Great tour guide
This was well worth the money! It was like having our own personal tour guide! We enjoyed the points of interest that were told to us as we drove through the park. We were given options when we would get to a turn in the road. He has a nice soothing voice. We couldn’t get it to go through our car usb on the iPhone so just listen with the speaker on the phone. My battery kept getting low so would have to plug in while he wasn’t talking. Was sad when the tour came to an end but will diffidently use gypsy guide when going through other National Parks. We will tell all our friends! Thanks!
