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. ABOUT US 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.

  • Worth the money

    By TishReese
    Initially I felt this was expensive for an app that I would only use once but it was very informative and entertaining. I highly recommend it to anyone who drives the road to Hana.
  • Gypsy Hana app worth the money- must buy

    By lostinmaui
    Heard about app from friend. Thought guide books were enough. No way. Gypsy’s narration was timely thoughtful and helpful. Told us where to turn and what stops to make and avoid. Invaluable. By the end the narrator felt like a family member and I know way more about Hawaiian history than I thought possible. We waited for our goodbye sign off sadly. Only note- Maui stables sign not on road by Lindbergh grave.
  • Totally Worth It

    By HokeSara
    Made the road to Hana an amazing and informative experience. The narrator is a hoot. Very laidback but full of great tips and trivia.
  • EXCELLENT !!!!

    By Jollyroger1665
    This app was awesome!!! I couldn’t imagine driving the Road to Hana without this app. It was very entertaining and super informative. His commentary and suggestions matched with where we were on the road perfectly. I learned a lot about the history of Hawaii’s kings and queens and how they ended up being our 50th state. Well done!!!
  • Highly recommend this app

    By spterrell
    We had heard great comments from other hotel guests so glad we listened loved the tips going and the great history of the island coming back was most enjoyable. We recommend the app to other guests
  • Fantastic App!!!

    By joffrey0808
    This app is perfect for first time Road to Hana travelers or those who have made the trek before. The prompts are informative but not destructing. They tell you all the best places to stop and where is a waste of time. I felt like I didn’t waste any precious daylight at places that weren’t worth the walk or hassle of parking. So glad to have found this app!!! Great purchase for a good price.
  • Thank you!

    By VespaJP
    I forgot my guidebook at home and met a random stranger who recommended it our family use this app while traveling the road to Hana. We all enjoyed the commentary and appreciated all of the recommended stops. Thank you so much for this brilliant app!
  • Best $6 you’ll spend on Maui

    By brandont6
    If you don’t mind driving yourself there, DO NOT pay $100+ per person to have some van tour drive you out there. This app is everything you need. Awesome to have four drive out to Hana.
  • Best app for Hana!!

    By dontforgetmegan
    So many things to say. First, I am impressed at the fact I lost cell service but this app knew exactly where I was and continued to work. You can tell there was a lot of hard work put into this app. I don’t know who voices it, but my boyfriend and I decided to call him “Fred”. We decided to listen to all of Fred’s suggestions, like getting of Keane and stopping for banana bread, and those were some of the best parts of the trip! It felt great to turn the music off in the car and just wait for fun facts about Maui from Fred as we were driving. I also appreciate how on the way Fred goes into the history of Maui, and he didn’t sugarcoat anything. We did the road to Hana our first day into our trip, so we felt very acquainted with the history of it by the time we hit a Luau or saw historical markers. I recommend this app to everyone!! Good job Fred!! Thanks for being our friend on the road to Hana!!!

    A must have in the Road to Hana! The guide was helpful and informative without bring preachy. Helped us make decisions not only about where to stop but more importantly where NOT to stop. Had a few minor glitches where it skipped a few narratives but overall the content was just perfect.
