Tour like a Local
On your Yosemite adventure, bring along an entertaining guide in your car: a GyPSy Guide.
A tour app, GyPSy Guide gives you the experience of learning about the areas you drive past without paying top dollar for a real human tour guide. Stories include colorful characters like John Muir, some of the park’s legendary rock climbers, early Native American inhabitants and much more.
"We recognized that travelers preferred to set their own pace and itinerary, but still enjoyed a fun, informative and educational guided experience” says Rick Bulich of GyPSy Guide. "That became our inspiration. How do we recreate that experience for people who want remain independent and self tour in their own vehicle?"
The narrated driving tour app uses your device’s location to automatically play commentary about roadside attractions as you drive. It tells you about upcoming sites, so you have time to make an informed decision as to whether you want to stop. Because the app relies on your phone’s GPS signal, not cell towers, roaming data fees are not an issue.
