We only had 1.5 days in Yellowstone. This app worked flawlessly (even having little to no cellular service) and allowed us to really maximize our time in the park. Our virtual tour guide told us of spots coming up on the road, which ones were must sees, and which ones we were ok to miss on short time. His recommendations never disappointed! We appreciated the facts shared on the drives between destinations as well since Yellowstone is such a huge park. Even the teens thought it was interesting with just enough humor thrown in to keep them listening. This was the best investment we made on the whole trip and even if we would have paid 3x more, we still would say the same!
Honestly, the only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 was because there were some sights we were directed to that were closed. It would be helpful if there was a way to keep updated on closures. Otherwise, it really made the experience so much better than it would have been on our own. There were so many places away from the crowds at the “big name” places that he directed us to that were amazing and I’m sure we would have gone by without stopping. Interesting facts and background information on the park in general was great to listen to during stretches going from one sight to another. I am so glad I found this app! I only wish I had known about it when we were at Arches and Canyonlands! The fact that it works off GPS and not cell service is key because there is virtually no cell service in the park!
I traveled to Big Sky MT met up with some relatives who were there on business. I then started my Solo trip into West Yellowstone and stayed 3 nights in Gardiner/North Yellowstone. The Gypsy Guide was my new traveling buddy, I could not have done this 3 day journey without it! It guided me through everything, from scenic photo ops to little hikes to long hikes. It told me what areas were a must see and some areas not , depending on your time. It advised me when I was entered and exited the park. Gypsy told me about the fabulous history and was also very informative about the animals in park. I loved this APP and really could not have this journey without. It’s a must for any future parks! Thank You Gypsy Guide 👍👍👍👍👍
This app is awesome! I would recommend everyone download it if traveling in Yellowstone. It gives you informative information and facts about the park. The best thing is that it works with GPS to track your location and tailor information to your location. It tells you the “must see” sites and also gives you other stops to make if you have time. There are a few things we would’ve driven by without this app because we didn’t know it was worth seeing! If I go anywhere else that this is offered, I am 100% downloading this app. And the price is cheap! Don’t debate; just download it!
“Ranger Rick” (we nicknamed the narrator) gave great advice about the turnoffs at Yellowstone. He alerted us before approaching a turnoff what was ahead and if it was a must-see or the hike was long or strenuous, and how long to expect to stay there. He also gave history about some spots. In between spots, he talked about the wildlife and what to look for. I feel we saw everything we needed to see in 3 days in Yellowstone, because “Rick” told us where to turn in and what to expect. It is especially great because you can use this app with no cellular service, which you do no get in Yellowstone. It really IS like having a tour guide in your car.

DRIVING TOUR ROUTE
The tour includes the most popular sightseeing stops and many more:
1) Old Faithful and the incredible Geyser Basin Areas
2) The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone Area
3) Mammoth Hot Springs
4) West Thumb and the Lake area
5) Tower Fall and Roosevelt area
6) Many wildlife spotting opportunities
You can join the tour from any of the 5 park entrances or anywhere along the route. Whichever entrance you use, commentary will begin 10-15 minutes before you reach the Grand Loop Drive - the main road that circles the park.
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.
