GyPSy Guide GPS driving tour from Waikiki to Pearl Harbor is an excellent way to enjoy a sightseeing trip to visit to important USS Arizona Monument. There are 35+ 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.

This tour is FREE! So why not try GyPSy Guide and then you will want it for other sightseeing drives on Oahu!


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 app uses 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 to take you to Pearl Harbor. We’ll provide an excellent introduction to visiting the site with tips and advice. We'll talk about special Hawaiian things as we guide you back


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.


For this tour, we take the fastest route from Waikiki to Pearl Harbor - the H1 Freeway. After visiting the site, we'll guide you back to Waikiki and have all different stories for the return journey.

We do not recommend trying to visit Pearl Harbor, and do a full circle around the island in one day. Visiting Pearly Harbor takes a few hours and you most likely will run out of daylight if you try to do a drive all the way around the island on the same trip. Do that Island Circle drive on its own day so you have lots of time to stop and enjoy all the sights.


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

++ 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.
