GyPSy Guide GPS driving tour of Kauai is an excellent way to enjoy a sightseeing trip to explore the entire island. There are 280+ 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 KAUAI 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 Kauai. 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 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 The tour has commentary everywhere on the island that you will want to explore. We recommend dividing the island into at least 2 driving days. 1) North and Eastern Kauai. This half of the island tours through the famous northern beach and resort areas of Hanalei and Princeville. The tour continues all the way to the end of the road at Ke’e Beach. Between Princeville and Lihue we’ll explore many fine beaches and the vibrant town of Kapa’a. 2) South and Western Kauai. The resort area of Poipu is home to south shore's best beaches and the island’s most famous blowhole. Drive further for the artsy town of Hanapepe. From historic Waimea, we travel up Kauai’s volcanic mountains to the superb Waimea Canyon and continue to the awe-inspiring viewpoints of Koke’e Park perched above the Na Pali Cost. There’s much more to see as we drive and GyPSy will be you very own tour guide all the way. 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. 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.



  • Visiting from Oahu

    By dmike00
    The spouse and I planned a somewhat last minute trip from. Oahu to Kauai. Being the summer months, all the activities we wanted to do were fully booked, (tubing, napali coast, kayaking, etc...). We downloaded this app in a forced effort to do our own thing! This tour did not disappoint, we took several side excursions recommended by the your guide, and with the point outs, spent 2 days touring Kauai doing our own thing, and had a blast!!!! The tour guide is informative,funny, and very knowledgeable on current Kauai, the highlights and directions we’re super accurate. The spouse and I would Highly recommend!!!!
  • Informative

    By rtvp1003
    We used this for our entire self guided tour. I wish I had known about it when we were in Maui - I would have saved on one or two of the expensive tour buses. We appreciated the additional facts and history. We liked the recommendations. Loved the app. Thank you!
  • Made my Vacation to Kuai so much better.

    I can’t say enough about the app. Works with out cell service. It was like having a tour guide go with you through the whole island. I can’t wait to go the other other islands of Hawaii and buy the other apps.
  • Get this app now!

    What a great app! This app helped me to discover places I wouldn’t explore. I had a list of places where I planned to go, but Gypsy made it easier to go where I planned to go and much more!! It’s silly to say that I felt safe with the app knowing where I was going, he gives you warning if you should continue driving or not, also when I didn’t have Signal I know gypsy wouldn’t let me down! 🤣 highly recommended! Don’t listen to the bad reviews! It’s worth it.
  • So worth it!

    Best $7 we spent on this vacation. We saw way more things and learned more about the island’s history than we would have without our trusty guide. The driving directions were spot on and very detailed and helpful such as “make a slight left at the palm tree and hedge,” or “make sure you don’t park on the grass driveway.” We also appreciated how he gave us options for side trips and explained enough in advance that we had time to decide what to do. We also experienced the two glitches, but they resolved by exiting the app and starting again. Our guide was fun to listen to, and made our vacation much more efficient. Great job!
  • Fun app

    By Gras Duibh
    All the Hawaiian Island GypSy apá are great. The directions are great, the stories are fun, the history is interesting. You can spend a lot of money on a tour but this app is like having your own personal guide but you are in control of your destinations. The hints for good and drinks are great as well. One of the best purchases made on our visit to Kaua’i.
  • So worth the $$

    By AFarhang
    Ok, so we stayed in Princeville and wanted to go to Waimea Canyon. This app made the time fly, and the narrator was fun. I know other reviewers said he was annoying- but I found him to be funny and nice to listen to. Kinda reminded us of Jeff Bridges. Anyway! I totally will recommend this app to all my friends and family. It’s probably the best $$ spent on vacation so far! We saw a lot more things because of this app. A swinging bridge, waterfalls, salt ponds, incredible beaches ... plus we learned a lot about the island’s history along the way. I wish there were more locations available, perhaps along the California coast?! *hint hint* 😉
  • Not at all disappointed and loved the tour!

    By Fan of the Gypsy app!
    This app saved us spending $120 a person to sit on a motor coach tour for 8 hours. We hd the freedom to stop and go where we wanted and spend as much time at any site. We could skip what we didn't have time for and the tour just keeps moving to the next highlight. I loved hearing the history of Hawaii and learning that Kaua'i is the oldest island and the last to retain its independence. This is a brilliant idea and I will use this app again when visiting other places. Bravo!!!
  • Ugh

    By marycig
    Not updated to reflect road closures in Kauai. Totally condescending narrator. I wanted some cool info on Kauai spots- and ultimately was not provide with anything helpful.
  • Utterly Disappointed

    By CMac4547
    This app came so highly recommended and I was excited to use it on my recent trip to Kauai. However, the narrator’s voice is annoying and most of the information he provides is “filler”. It feels as though he’s spouting facts for the sake of showing off how much information he knows and he comes off like an annoying tour guide on a giant bus filled with camera toting tourists wearing fishing hats. (You know the kind!) I wanted detailed information about points of interest along my driving route, not a narrated guidebook spewing out so much information that we couldn’t even carry on a conversation or listen to music in the background. Some ideas for future updates: 1) Ability to change narrator’s voice 2) Ability to choose an “expedited” version that only discusses points of interests that you should look at or pull off to see without all the intermediary fluff 3) Ability to “preload” the points of interest that you want to hear about since you are able to see the routes and discussion points prior to driving.
