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.

We used the guide for Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper and Canmore in Canada and Yellowstone in the US. Originally had trouble connecting with blue tooth but called the help number and started using it with a cord. The apps are absolutely wonderful! We felt like we had a tour guide in the car. So much wonderful information about the areas,... More

This guide was fabulous for Yellowstone National Park. It knew exactly where we were at offered suggestions on things to do that we would probably never have known about. Must download the app prior to going into the park, since it requires the internet. Well worth the $4.99 cost!

Downloaded theses Canadian Rockies guides on advice of a previous traveller - they were brilliant - so much we would have missed without them - great advice on must sees and advice on how long stop would take along with interesting stories and good humour along the way - my teenagers loved these guides and we missed them on trip...

Made a long trip entertaining and informative. My 3 teen kids were tickled by the humour and whimsy of the narrator and decided to give him a 'AI name'....D.A.V.I.D. 'Deliberately Amusing Very Informative Director' for Gypsy. By the end of the trip they were quite punchy and giggly which is music to a parent's ears by the end of a... More

What a fantastic app. Lots of great tips and facts. We would have missed lots of scenic views had it not been for this guide. Hope they get more destinations soon. If you are doing a road trip anywhere, check this app out first. Can't go wrong.

From a review, I purchased the four GyPSy Guide tours for the Canadian Rockies. I didn't have time to prep for our car trip. We felt we had a well informed local expert in our car telling us about the history, geology, wildlife, and so much more. The advice of when a view was a must see was right on.... More

I read the reviews and decided to wait to see if rental car had Bluetooth first, it did and I bought and downloaded the Rockies bundle, you need to download over wifi so plan accordingly. I was very impressed as the narrator chimed in at key times to announce what we were looking at or advising us of upcoming stops,... More

We used 3 of these guides on our self drive tour of the Canadian Rockies and all of us found the guides informative and entertaining. As the driver ai found they made the miles fly by. Great value for money.

We had the App for Yellowstone. It was amazing to follow. There was information, direction, and science informing us of the area we were in. Best purchase ever. Wish there were more places the GyPSy guide offered. Hopefully in the future the guide will expand its locations!!!
