GPS Triggered Commentary Tours. Listen to stories, tips and advice for what to see and do on scenic drives throughout Western Canada, Maui and Las Vegas. GyPSy Guide is a small device that you rent by the day and it automatically plays commentary on the best things to see and do as they come into view, through your vehicle stereo. A team of professional tour guides has filled GyPSy Guide with stories about past explorers, where to watch for wildlife and locals advice so you don’t miss any of the best attractions and sightseeing. The audio is recorded by real people and plays as you drive, just like listening to the radio.

Our friend introduced us the GyPsy guides for our trip to Banff and Jasper National Parks. We used it for our drive from Calgary to Banff, and Jasper. We were surprised how easy to use it and all the detailed information the guide provided us. We're looking forward to using it for other destinations. We highly recommend this GPS guides.

Have done the Oahu, Hawaii, and kamloops to banff +sea to sky highway. Highly recommend- would have missed great views, sights and knowledge without it. The narrator is easy to listen to, not too much information, has some wit - a must have on any road trip. F a n t a s t i c.

Just used this app on our week's tour of Yellowstone. Really missed not having it available as we moved South into Grand Tetons. (Tetons Next!!?) We found the info to be right on target, very accurate, and useful. Worked flawlessly even when there was zero connectivity, which is most of the park. Other apps were useless. Very highly recommended, wish... More

We discovered this app by chance just before we left Lake Louise for Jasper on the Icefields Parkway. What a wonderful discovery! The guide uses GPS and downloaded material so it does not matter that for 150 miles there is not cell phone coverage. The guide was well scripted, very useful in sorting out what you NEED to see and... More

Interesting information and points out highlights not to be missed. I traveled with my 11 year old son and my father. The information about each site and point... More

Excellent- it's like having a knowledgeable friend by your side. We called him "Bill" and we really missed Bill on our trip from Jasper to Kamloops.

My son and I just returned from a trip to the Canadian Rockies, and we purchased the 4 apps bundle for $14.99. Plus, we listened to the free guide from Calgary to Banff. The tours increased the enjoyment of our trip 10-fold. There is no question that our trip would not have been as enjoyable without them. They saved us... More

Download the guide via app store before you get into the park - no reliable wifi in the park. The guide runs off GPS which is available in the park. There is so much to see, the guide helps you decide which turn offs you want to take. The narration explains what is coming up as you drive the loop... More
