This is the perfect and most comprehensive guide for anyone planning to explore all over the island. This tour combines the 2 most popular touring routes:

1) The Beaches and Volcanoes Tour:
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.

2) The Island Circle Tour:
Famous surfing beaches of the North Shore,
Laie with its Sea Arch and the Polynesian Cultural Center
Chinamans Hat
Byodo-In
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 want to take both of these drives while on Oahu. It’s the best value. There is also bonus commentary to and from 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. If you are not staying in Waikiki - you can join anywhere along the route.

Let GyPSy be your guide as it helps you work out the best places for you to visit by giving you helpful information so you can make good decisions and make the most of the time you have available.

** This app works OFF-LINE while you are touring. There is no need to have a network or wireless connection.

Once downloaded, this tour REQUIRES NO DATA to operate and activate, so you won’t incur roaming or data charges. YOU DO NOT REQUIRE A CELLULAR NETWORK CONNECTION TO TOUR!! You will not incur any data roaming charges to use this tour, even if you are from outside the USA. Works Off-line and with Data Roaming turned OFF.

Professional tour guides have filled the guide with interesting and entertaining stories, loads of tips and advice on what to do and will point out places of interest as you approach them. There are 257 commentary points - it’s just like driving around with a local expert.

Just 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 will block the download because of size - so its important to download over a Wi-Fi network.

This tour is not just a directory but a designed tour to follow, just like how a tour guide would take you. It’s simple and entertaining; just let GyPSy provide commentary automatically as you travel.

GyPSy Guides are Hawaii's favorite drive touring apps.


++ Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life - we strongly recommend taking a car charger.

iPad users - If your iPad is wireless-only model - it will not automatically activate the commentary which requires GPS function - WiFi-only models do not contain GPS hardware. Any iPhone will activate just fine. For automatic commentary activation on an iPad, your model must be a "Wi-Fi + Cellular" model - though connection to a network is not required.
