Description

GyPSy Guide’s narrated driving tour for Yosemite National Park is an excellent way to enjoy all the benefits of a guided tour while you explore at your own pace. There are 200+ audio points that play automatically along a tour route, 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: Yosemite just might be the iconic US National Park. A land of giants, massive granite cliffs and domes providing the setting for dramatic waterfalls to tumble thousands of feet over. Our tour begins as you approach each entrance, listen to an overview of the geological features you’ll be viewing and how time and the elements have shaped the valley, as well as a plan for exploring the Park. While in Yosemite Valley, with stops at Yosemite and Bridalveil Falls we’ll show where to spot for rock climbers on the sheer granite El Capitan. Considered mecca for climbers from all over the world, you’ll hear about their feats, while new records may be set for you to see. As we climb to the spectacular Glacier Point for views down into the valley, you’ll learn how important Presidential visits shaped the future for National Parks and hear how the legendary Buffalo Soldiers became guardians of the National Park. Travel to a hidden corner of Yosemite National Park, the Hetch Hetchy Valley and feel rather insignificant as you stand under the towering Giant Sequoias in Mariposa Grove. The tour officially starts and ends close to each entrance of the Park; Big Oak Flat, El Portal, Fish Camp Wawona or Lee Vining Tioga Pass entrances. Or you can join and pick up the commentary anywhere along the route. Narration will automatically trigger at the next commentary point. WHAT YOU’LL SEE: Highlights along the tour route include • Mariposa Grove • Bridalveil Falls • El Capitan • Yosemite Valley • Glacier Point • Hetch Hetchy • Tioga Pass • Yosemite Falls • Half & Sentinel Domes • Wawona Covered Bridge • Olmsted Point • Tuolumne Grove Don't miss out on the best stops and stories. Enhance your Yosemite National Park experience with our audio driving tours. 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.

  • Don’t go on a trip without it!!

    While planning our trip to Yosemite National Park, I read about this app somewhere and thought ok, I’d risk the few bucks!! I am sooooo glad I did! We didn’t miss a thing while riding through Yosemite, and decided to ride to Hetch Hetchy as well! It’s like having your own personal tour guide! I happened to have bought a portable battery charger for this trip, so I never had a problem with a dying battery. If you’re planning on spending money to go on vacation, then spend the extra on this app and the battery charger. You won’t regret it! Now I can’t wait to go on more Gypsy Guide tours!

    This audio driving tour was absolutely perfect for our first visit to Yosemite. So helpful and informative. I thoroughly enjoyed this app and will definitely be using other gypsy guide apps for other parks! In my opinion, this app is a must have for your first visit.

    This app was surprisingly good. I just spent two days in Yosemite, and this app worked beautifully. This is an audio guide. You start the app while you’re driving and it gives you information as you drive, based on knowing your location and which direction you’re traveling. The script is quite rich, and the person who recorded the audio was quite skilled at it. It was like having a tour guide riding in the car with us. In addition to information about stops and scenery, it also give navigation information that is very well timed to help you get into the right lane at the right time for wherever you want to go. It was absolutely worth the several dollars I paid for it. Keep in mind, though, that this is just an audio guide, and while it was great, I was initially surprised that it didn’t have any text-based info in it. That is, it doesn’t have anything in it that you can read in advance of your trip, to research what sites to see or to plan your itinerary. Just get a different app for that and plan on launching this one as you approach the entrance to Yosemite National Park, and keep it running whenever you’re in the car.
  • Great GPS Guided Tour of Yosemite

    I've been to Yosemite several times, but my husband of 72 years had last been here with his family when he was a child. I found this app to give him an audible experience along with our drive through. It's wonderful! Many helpful directives some of the iconic places in the park and entertaining historic tidbits between stops. The only thing is the narrators self promoting discussions of his publications - but you can't blame the guy for shameless plugs on his own app! 😏 Having said that, we thoroughly appreciated this app and will definitely use it again for another destination!

    I downloaded this app at the end of our first day in the park. Man did this tour change our trip. He is so knowledgeable and helps even in guiding through traffic. Everyone in our family love him and we will definitely buy another app wherever they are available.

    LOVED IT!! It was very informative about what was in the park to see, the driving instructions were spot on! Loved that it told us what lane to in, all the different options on how to get to where we wanted to go. Especially loved the commentary, the history of the area and the men and women who played a part, the stories were entertaining. Will be using again and again, would highly recommend to everyone!
  • The PERFECT App!

    We have been to Yosemite a number of times but this guide completely changed our experience. It helps point you towards things you must see and others that you may not have realized existed. It gives you real time approach (through GPS) to parking so that you don't miss a parking lot and gives you direct pointers on where to spot iconic landmarks. Great for pictures! It also gives you amazing hiking tips including what to expect for experience levels. In between guided points, he provides fillers with Yosemite history tidbits. Unquestionably the best app I have ever had for guided travel! Thank you!

    This was our families first time to Yosemite, and we only had one day to spend in the park. We looked through numerous articles, blogs, and YouTube videos to find awesome places to explore, but none were as insightful as this fun gps car tour guide. The voice is perfect, and not annoying. Highly recommend. He is with you as you drive throughout the park and is definitely worth the small price.
  • Amazing App - Won’t travel without it!

    GyPSy made sure we saw all the amazing parts of Yosemite, and eve recommend the less important parts we could skip. We used it all three days in the park and would highly recommend for anyone coming for their first or second visit. So much better and convenient than the tours offered inside and outside the park. Will plan our next vacation only around parks with GyPSy guides!
