There are 200+ audio points that play automatically along the scenic drive, featuring the best things to see and do, stories, tips and driving directions. Professional tour guides share advice on how to prioritize your time at recommended “not to be missed” viewpoints, suggested side-trips and places of interest. Tours work offline, using free GPS signal and location services, so no data roaming, network, or wifi is required while touring. It’s Just Like Having a Tour Guide in Your Car™ WHAT TO EXPECT: The Road to Hana is one of the world’s most scenic drives and a popular sightseeing activity to see Maui’s spectacular waterfalls, black sand beaches, bamboo forests, lava rock formations and amazing ocean views as you wind your way through 620 curves and 59 bridges. If you prefer travelling independently, at your own pace, GyPSy Guide provides the best Road to Hana tour experience, along with the freedom to choose what you enjoy; squishing the black sand between your toes at Wai’anapanapa, hiking the Pipiwai Bamboo Trail, or maybe time to enjoy an extra slice of banana bread. You can’t help but cheer on the world class windsurfers at Ho’okipa. And you won’t need to worry about photoshopping the Rainbow Eucalyptus at the Ke’anae Arboretum or the stunning contrast between blue water and black lava rock at Ke’anae Peninsular. Take a moment to cool off with a quick swim at the pristine Hamoa Beach and see where Haleakala National Park descends from the summit to the sea and the “Seven Sacred Pools” of Oheo at the end of the drive. With such a long day of exploring (expect 8-12 hours), it’s important to know the 5 “not to be missed” stops, and the many more suggestions if you have time. Part of the secret to enjoying the journey is knowing how not to waste your time, and we have tips for that as well. On the return drive from Hana, we’ll point out the not to be missed stops again as well as tell you stories about Hawaii’s fascinating history and rich culture. Please note Highway #31 ‘backside route’ is not recommended for driving. Rental car insurance void. Road can be closed for repairs, mudslides and flash floods. WHAT YOU’LL SEE: Some of the highlights along the route include; • Ho’okipa Beach Park • Paia • Ke’anae Peninsular • Wai’anapanapa Park, Black Sand Beach • Hana • Hamoa Beach • Wailua Falls • Twin Falls • Upper Waikanai Falls (3 Bears) • Pools of O’heo (Seven Sacred Pools) • Pipiwai Bamboo Trail **Reservations to visit Wai'anapanapa State Park and black sand beach are now mandatory** BATTERY USAGE: ++ Continued use of GPS/Location Services in the background increases battery usage. We strongly recommend taking a cigarette style (DC outlet) car charger. Avoid using a direct connection to the USB port of a rental vehicle. IPADS: ** iPad models must include a GPS chip. Please note that Apple only install these on the iPad Wifi + Cellular models. Wifi only iPad models have limited location service capabilities and are unable to play commentary automatically. DOWNLOADING: The apps are larger in size in order to work offline. You must be on wifi to download as the store may block the download over cellular networks.

    This app was a must for the road to Hana! Best tour app ever! We couldn’t have done it without it! The narrator was informative, funny, & entertaining. Its directions were very precise too!
  • Amazing

    By JGagliardo
    A friend recommended this app and it did not disappoint! We learned so much on our journey to Hana!
  • Over the top

    At first we thought, why pay for an app when the Road to Hana is free. We changed our mind as soon as we hit start. This app is an excellent resource for the trip as well as learning about Hawaiian history in a brief, entertaining way. The stories between stops pull you in. The Road to Hana is not complete without it.
  • Road to Hana made easy

    By OklahomaMiss
    Our trip was enjoyable on the way and back. All the history was an added plus! This is better than having a personal tour guide.
  • Best Travel Guide Ever!

    I was skeptical but after reading reviews, decided to buy it. Best $14.99 spent! I missed his name so I started calling him Gary because he sounded like a Gary to me. Anyway, we stopped at most of his recommendations especially memorable was Aunty Sandy’s. Must stop and get at least one loaf! Hearing about some of Hawaii’s history was very enlightening! Well done!

    Everyone was fully entertained-even the driver! We were tempted to try some of the “non-suggested”stops just to hear the narrators response-very interactive and easy to use-totally worth the $14.99

    This works much much better than I had anticipated. The history nerd in me appreciated the extra history information on the drive back after we completed our tour. Also, it keeps flawless track of where you are on the road to Hana despite having no cell service. It was like having a real life private tour guide in the car with us.

    There’s no cell service much of the way, and I don’t know what we would have done without this guide! My first plan was to follow along with my phone, which wouldn’t have worked at all. The guide was excellent. Entertaining, educational, and extremely helpful. We hit all of the highlights.
  • Awesome

    By bagarner
    This was the best! Key information given along the way. You don’t have to know anything about where you’re going, he tells you all you need to know.
