There are 460+ 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 FOR SCENIC DRIVES ON HAWAII'S BIG ISLAND 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. 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 the Big Island of Hawaii. We’ll recommend the best places to experience and some great locations that most visitors will drive by. 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 Its 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. WORKS OFFLINE No data, cellular or even wireless network connection needed while touring. Download over wifi before you tour. Anyone can use them with no need for roaming data – even visiting from another country. DRIVING TOUR ROUTES Volcanoes National Park Tour Our tour takes you from resort areas in Kona and the Kohala Coast to Volcanoes National Park, that includes a comprehensive tour inside Volcanoes National Park. Listen to different stories on the drive back to Kona. OR, you can drive clockwise from Kona and Hilo towards the park with full tour commentary as well. Island Circle Route Being an island, you will want to drive all the way around. You can drive our Full Circle Tour around the island in either direction and includes Volcanoes National Park, Hilo, Hamakua Coast, Waipio Valley, Waimea, Punalu'u Black Sand Beach and the Kona Coast. Kohala Coast Scenic Drive Recommended half day drive following the spectacular northern coast of the island including the historic sugar towns of Hawi and Kapaau, the superb views from above the Pololu Valley and then drive over the Kohala Mountains to Waimea cowboy town before returning to the coast. Kona Coast Sightseeing Another half day tour to see Kona's best beaches, the islands best snorkeling and many fascinating cultural and historically significant sites including Kealakekua Bay and the Place of Refuge. Plus many great viewpoints as we tour through the coffee plantation areas. 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. Will not play automatically on Wifi-only iPads. ++ 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. 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. 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.

  • Good but misses few key places

    By Anandapadmanabhan R
    We used this app at Maui and it was great. So when we visited the Big Island, it was obvious to have this and we paid for the app. While the directions were great in most places, this app completely missed Maunakea! Thankfully we checked Google / TripAdvisor and went there. It's a place that you can't miss in Big Island
  • Best money spent

    By Latebrake21
    This is one of the best purchases. Very insightful information about the history of the island up to date information about the 2018 lava flow. Great driving directions with little stops along the way that we wouldn’t of known hadn’t been for this app would highly recommend if traveling to Hawaii also used the Maui app when we visited Maui and loved it.
  • Great driving guide

    By lc10025
    We spent a week looping around the big island and felt this audio guide was well worth the money. We enjoyed the historical background it provided and found the points of interest suggestions helpful and accurate.
  • Gypsy Big Island

    By R Baar
    Awesome app, Not only does it guide you to all points of interest but tells you how long each point of interest takes. Also tells you some Hawaiian folklore and history
  • Second time, just as good!

    By itaysho
    We used it last year in Maui, and now we used it on the big island. Very accurate, great information and many great tips! Best way to travel in my opinion.

  • Big Island Tour

    By Gordo DC
    Used the tours in Maui and Ohoa and got the tour when we arrived in Hawaii and loved it as much as the others.
  • Big Island

    By AnnayBell
    Fabulous app. It was like having a private tour guide in the car with us. Great driving directions, as well as commentary and history of the island. Even reading tour guides before we left it showed us places we would have otherwise missed.
  • Best Trip $ Spent!

    By ScrapperDo
    We just got back from an 8-day trip to the big island and this app was AWESOME! We drove all over the island for hundreds of miles and had our tour guide (we named him Bob) running the whole time. We learned so much, never got lost, and appreciated the informational options in advance so we could make choices that met our needs. We also liked the fact that we got different tidbits of information going different directions on the same road. It was even updated with information on the 2018 lava flow. The only thing that would’ve been better is if some information could be added for the drive over the island on Saddle Road. Other than that, it was perfect and well worth every penny! Don’t leave home without it.
  • Delay your trip significantly

    By NoBigIsland
    We used the app to drive south from Kona to volcano park and north to north coast and Akaka falls. Both trips were delayed by 2hours than it should be. We followed the app and drove the much longer route with not much to see on the way. There are not much to see on big island and for major sites there are road signs telling you where to go or you can just use the google map to get your destination 2 hours earlier. 90% of the volcano park is also closed, but this app hasn’t been updated yet. It is a totally wastes of our time. The road to Hana one is the only app you should use.
