GyPSy Guide GPS driving tour of Yellowstone is an excellent way to enjoy a sightseeing trip to explore the national park. There are 300+ 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 Yellowstone. We’ll recommend the best places to experience 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


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 includes the most popular sightseeing stops and many more:

1) Old Faithful and the incredible Geyser Basin Areas
2) The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone Area
3) Mammoth Hot Springs
4) West Thumb and the Lake area
5) Tower Fall and Roosevelt area
6) Many wildlife spotting opportunities

You can join the tour from any of the 5 park entrances or anywhere along the route. Whichever entrance you use, commentary will begin 10-15 minutes before you reach the Grand Loop Drive - the main road that circles the park.


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.


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.

My friend and I went to Yellowstone for the first time on a girls trip and because of COVID... we were nervous the trip was going to be cancelled and Yellowstone shut down so we were hesitant to do too much research before, and ended up leaving way less prepared than we should have been.

After reading the reviews, we downloaded this app and were so happy we did! It was like we were road tripping with our favorite uncle (you know, not the creepy one, the one that is actually funny and has relevant stories). The GPS worked perfectly and all of the “coming up next” warnings gave plenty of time to make sure you didn’t miss any turns. We starting calling him Uncle Buck (his voice reminded me a little of John Candy, yeah... not so much when I go back and compare side by side, but it had already stuck). It’s really well done and the info and stories are interesting and just the right amount of into without getting boring. I highly recommend the app, I’ll definitely road trip with Uncle Buck again!

A YellowStone Must!

Just getting back from my first time to YellowStone (late September) & this app really enhanced the experience. Since most of the park doesn’t have wi-fi this gps based app is freekin genius! I really enjoyed the “can’t miss stops”, as they 100% were! Also loved how well the app explained why each stop was recommended & where certain trail heads were. The guy narrating had a perfect mixture of humor & really interesting facts about the park & it’s history as well as the wild life. The beauty of this app is that it’s perfect for everyone, I went with some life long buddies & we’re in our late 30’s, would be perfect for a family, couple or literally anyone! Don’t let the price scare you, it’s the best $10 I’ve spent on iTunes period.

Best Tour Guide App!

Honestly, the only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 was because there were some sights we were directed to that were closed. It would be helpful if there was a way to keep updated on closures. Otherwise, it really made the experience so much better than it would have been on our own. There were so many places away from the crowds at the “big name” places that he directed us to that were amazing and I’m sure we would have gone by without stopping. Interesting facts and background information on the park in general was great to listen to during stretches going from one sight to another. I am so glad I found this app! I only wish I had known about it when we were at Arches and Canyonlands! The fact that it works off GPS and not cell service is key because there is virtually no cell service in the park!
