This tour has 230+ commentary points
This is the pefect and most comprehensive guide for anyone planning to explore all over the island. This tour combine the 2 most popular touring routes:
The Beaches and Volcanoes Tour that focuses on the south-eastern corner of Oahu with its iconic sites like Hanauma Bay, Diamond Head, Pali Lookout and some of Hawaii's best swimming beaches. You can do this tour in a rushed 1/2 day, but more time is recommended.
The Island Circle Tour which takes us to the famous surfing beaches of the North Shore, around to Laie with its Sea Arch and the Polynesian Cultural Center and to the attractive island of Chinamans Hat. Plus there are some excellent authentic Hawaiian dining and snacking opportunities. This is definitely a full day route.
So download this tour if you know you you want to take both of these drives while on Oahu. It’s the best value. There is also bonus commentary to Ko'Olina where the Disney resort Aulani is located.
Both of the major tour routes begin right in the heart of Waikiki and return back. You will hear instructions of where to turn in Waikiki depending which route you wish to follow.
This app is not just a directory. It provides a guided tour experience. You will feel like a local expert is showing you the best of everything as you drive. GyPSy knows where you are and plays automatically.
Once downloaded, the tour requires no data exchange to operate and activate the commentary points, so you will not have any data costs. Just download the app from your Wi-Fi network at home before you leave or use free Wi-Fi at the airport, your hotel or any other location. We recommend using an auxiliary cable or FM transmitter to make the audio play through the car speakers.
** Important: If you are downloading the tour to an iPad it must be a 3G model or higher. If the iPad is wireless only - it will not automatically activate the commentary which requires GPS function. Any iPhone 3G, 4 or 5 will activate just fine.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
