GyPSy Guide’s narrated driving tour for the Road to Hana, Maui is an excellent way to enjoy all the benefits of a guided tour while you explore at your own pace. There are 140+ 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. Visit for route maps, sample audio, tips and advice and what to know before you go. 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 BATTERY USAGE: ++ Continued use of GPS/Location Services in the background increases battery usage.

    i don’t think we would have seen everything we saw on the road to Hana if we didn’t have this app. it is very precise in what it tells you to do. tells you about the best places to stop and about the places which are more obscure. it gives exact directions to get to each place and his commentary is very interesting. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!!

    I purchased this app several years ago on a trip to Maui with my family. We thoroughly enjoyed the app on our drive to Hana and back. I planned a 2nd trip to Maui with my mom this month, who has never been to Maui. I was able to use the app a 2nd time and enjoyed it as much as the first on our drive to Hana during this trip. Best travel app ever! Looking forward to searching for more Gypsy apps for other locations. The app tracks your location using GPS and automatically points out points of interest as you drive, makes suggestions for food, etc. all spoken in a calm soothing voice. They’ve thought of everything.

    This app was amazing! We had been on the road before 19 years ago but we wanted to retrace our steps. However, the Road to Hana has always been know to be dangerous and unpredictable (just like life). So we saw the ad and looked at reviews. They all seemed good and for $7 seemed like a fair price especially when tours can go up to $120 per person! So we went on the tour and it was amazing! I had read that the app goes on low power mode when it hasn’t been used in a while so when we stopped I exited the app to save battery and turned it back on when we were off again, it would restart the sound check and it would take a bit to track the current location. I could see how that’s annoying but I honestly it wasn’t a bother to us. There are various stops they suggest and on the return the guide tells you history about the Hawaiian islands which was really cool. We were driving back at night so it was nice. One detail that would have been nice is if it was narrated by a native Hawaiian.

    Great app for the Road to Hana. He lead us through every step and told us what to skip and what was most important. I learned s lot of history on the way back. Looking forward to my next gypsy tour.
  • Best app ever

    By AndyandCathy
    This was the greatest app. We named our guide Keith’s. Without this we would have wasted time and missed a lot. Truely the best app I’ve ever used.
  • GPS & auto play never worked

    By 
    Never got the auto play to work. Tried all the suggestions under the troubleshooting FAQs. Listened manually but missed most of the stops because it was too hard to match points to the where we were on the road. I did like listening to the guide and the history. Would’ve been an amazing trip if I could’ve gotten the program to work.

    Absolutely a perfect guide. Informative and entertaining. Made the drive to Hana much more meaningful than doing it on our own. Definitely worth the price. Great suggestions for eating as well as sightseeing. A great bargain compared to tourist providers. Even paid attention to safety and courtesy on the drive. Highly recommended.
  • “The Road”

    By BarLPB
    The app was easy load easy use. The narrator and the narrative was clear, interesting and useful. The technology (using GPS) worked well at first, but when we stopped the car to look at a point of interest, the narration did not restart even though we left the phone on. To get it to restart we had to reboot the phone. This became tedious and we ended up missing a few stops because of it. On the way back, starting at about the half way point, the narration would stop mid sentence and we missed hearing the rest of the stories and histories. A great concept that started off great but ended with frustration.
