TOUR GUIDE AS YOU DRIVE THE CANADIAN ROCKIES 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 insightful and entertaining tours of the Rockies. We’ll recommend the best places to see and some great locations that most visitors don't get to see. 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 includes the most popular sightseeing stops and many more: 1) Athabasca Falls 2) Sunwapta Falls 3) Stutfield Glacier 4) Columbia Icefields and Ice Explorer 5) Peyto Lake 6) Bow Lake and Crowfoot Glacier This tour starts at the Highway 1 exit onto 93N (Icefields Parkway) outside of Lake Louise. Join 93N from Jasper by driving south from the town. Its is popular to do this tour as a day trip by driving from Banff or Lake Louise to the Columbia Icefields Centre and back. CANADIAN ROCKIES GyPSy Guide Tours This tour is a part of a set of tour apps by GyPSy Guide to explore the Canadian Rockies National Parks. Other tours in the series include: * Banff, Lake Louise and Yoho National Park * Banff Townsite and area * Jasper National Park For BEST VALUE, you may prefer to download the Canadian Rockies GyPSy Guide which includes all of these too. 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.

    I purchased the Canadian Rockies bundle and it was worth every penny and then some! We called the narrator “Steve” and he became an integral part of our trip. We made many stops at his advice and were so glad we did. On the parts of our trip where he didn’t have a tour, we felt lost and bored! Haha! What a great app.
  • WORTH EVERY PENNY (and more)

    I have never felt that an app was so valuable that it was worth the time spent writing a review... until now. I write this only to strongly encourage anyone visiting the Canadian Rockies to seriously consider purchasing the entire package—Icefields Pkwy, Banff,Jasper, and Lake Louise. My wife and I spent many hours researching and planning our trip to the Rockies and we still would have missed several key stops had it not been for this app. Even the Fairmont concierge’s recommendations were not sufficient. There are so many jaw-dropping stops, that it would be nearly impossible for a first-time visitor to plan a trip that properly balances time and value of each stop. The narrator provides just the right amount of commentary and detail to allow you to make an informed decision about what to see and how long to stay. In addition, the app works in real time with a phone gps, so there is no need to carry a map and count kilometers when you should be enjoying the spectacular views. I keep thinking of all I would have missed on this trip if not for this app. My wife and I are truly grateful.

    This tour was well worth the $5. It made our trip so much better, and there were many things we only saw because of the tour. Definitely download over wifi if possible.

    This was so helpfull and informative and just enough speaking. If you are having a road trip like the one we had best one to get while we had a drive from Calgary to Jasper . Had also downloaded other ones Calgary to jasper, icefeilds, Jasper, Lake louise. This also works offline which was great while we driving through icefeilds pkwy where there was no cellular reception.
  • Absolutely download this App!

    Driving the Icefields parkway with this app running was almost magical! The amount of info was just right and the combination of geological history and stories of human endeavor was excellent. I’ll now always check for gypsy tours wherever I travel!

    The smoke blew in 2 days before the trip we had booked a year in advance. This guided tour saved us. Even though we could see everything due to the smoke we still kept our activists and this guide had the driving tour so much more enjoyable. Thank you for saving our trip.
