App Description

GyPSy Guide GPS driving tour For Vancouver to Whistler and return is an excellent way to enjoy a sightseeing trip on the famous Sea to Sky Highway. There are 110+ audio points that play automatically, featuring what to see, stories, tips and advice. All the benefits of a guided tour, the freedom to drive yourself.

Visit www.gypsyguide.com for route maps, sample audio, tips and advice and what to know before you go.


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.


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 an insightful and entertaining tour along the Sea to Sky Highway. We’ll recommend the best places to experience and some great locations that most visitors will drive by.


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.


It’s just like having a local friend to show you around. And that friend just happens to be a professional tour guide.


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.


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.


This tour has commentary between Vancouver and Whistler in both directions along Highway 99, including the most popular sightseeing stops and much more:

1) Lions Gate Bridge
2) Howe Sound
3) Shannon Falls
4) The Chief
5) Squamish
6) Brandywine Falls
7) Whistler Blackcomb

Start from Vancouver or Whistler. This tour fits your itinerary if you are driving from Vancouver to the Rockies via Whistler and also if you are driving from the Rockies and BC Interior to Vancouver through Whistler.

Day tripping from Vancouver? Much of the commentary is different on the return journey, so its perfect for a day trip or weekend away.

Vancouver and Whistler co-hosted the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, but Whistler has long been considered Canada's premier alpine resort and mountain playground during summer and winter. On this tour we follow Highway 99 as it firstly hugs the shoreline of Howe Sound and then snakes through the valleys of the Coast Mountains to Whistler.


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.

++ 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.


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.
