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.

  • Must have app

    We have used Gypsy Guide in other parks before Yosemite. Didn’t disappoint. This guide is easy to use, has so much info!! It stayed with us no matter where we were in the park and allows visitors to really enjoy Yosemite without worries of missing something or getting lost. INVALUABLE!
  • Ended up having a friend in the car

    Researching, I ran across the Gypsy Guide for Yosemite National Park. For $5+ what’s to loose. We were so pleased at the points he pointed out that we would have missed. Also he helps navigate at turns and major routes. After Yosemite we went to the hotel and downloaded the Big Sur tour, just as informative plus 7 have to ding dongs, so you don’t miss out. This tour was $9+, but worth it. Highly recommend this app
  • Gypsy Made The Trip So Much Better!

    By Hetch Hetch 9-12-19
    My wife and I learned about the app on the Yosemite Facebook page and also saw it in a Yosemite magazine. We decided to try it and were so glad that we did! We learned so much driving from place to place and all of the recommendations were spot on. It is also very helpful with where to turn, etc. We came away from the trip with so much more history and knowledge than we would have got by just doing it ourselves. Really cool and highly recommended.
  • Highly recommend!!!

    So glad we used this app. Not only did it point out interesting places along our drive, it helped so much in knowing where to park and what to anticipate along the way.
  • Yosemite and Grand Tetons

    This app is incredible. Well worth the money. The guide sounds like someone I would love to meet! Personable, funny, articulate and so informative! Around every turn seems something new and enjoyable to hear about! Such great information and just interesting to listen to. Have just purchased the guide to Zion and Bryce Canyon trips and can’t wait to use it again . Thank u for this fantastic app!
  • Best App Ever Made for Yosemite

    By iRichi3
    This made my Yosemite trip 1000x better. We drove into the park in the South Gate and I remembered to turn this app on. I was blown away at how you basically have a knowledgeable tour guide in the car with you! He recommended we stop at Glacier Point, then showed us the Yosemite Valley! Just buy this app if you are going to Yosemite, even if you have been there before this will tell you about facts and stories you didn’t know! BUY BUY BUY!!!
  • Amazing technology!

    By Monanna8
    Whoa! This app absolutely made the trip to Yosemite perfect for us! We named him Papa and he guided us through every part of this national treasure. Plenty of advance notice when there was a decision on a turn to take or a picture opportunity...without him we would have been lost both geographically and educationally! Although they give you a map when you enter, just save that for when you get back home! Papa gave us so much history and information on each feature that we may not have taken the time to research...real time and real eyes on the park feature as he described it. Use this app ...period! You will love it!
  • Must-have app for your visit!

    I am so glad I heard about this app before taking a family trip to Yosemite! This app is absolutely perfect - it works flawlessly (even without cell service), the narrator is well-spoken and pleasant to listen to, and it is full of great facts and recommendations. We just started the tour, put the phone down, and listened to all the great info as we navigated the park. You don’t need to ever touch your phone. All of the information is automatically triggered by your GPS location. It warns you of upcoming points of interest, where to turn off, and gives hints about best parking options. This frees you up to just enjoy the views! It’s really like having a tour guide with you in your car. Absolutely worth the money! I will definitely purchase their other apps if we visit other locations they cover.
  • Worth it

    By Candy Applez

  • Amazing

    This app is absolutely amazing and worth the money. It was like we had our own personal tour guide in our car. I would highly recommend it for everyone. Even my 20 and 18 yo loved it. Best app purchase ever!!
