Review from Dennis Yotsuya
Best Tour Guide Worth every penny. Had to tap grey textbox START DRIVING TOUR to activate automatic guide. Used car's usb port to keep powered. Very informative and entertaining. Provides alerts to upcoming points of interest, very useful since not a lot of road signs are very obvious. Visited almost all of the suggested sites, had a great time.
As part of our Honeymoon we stayed for a week on the Big Island. The previous week on O'ahu we took several guided tours which was nice but didn't enjoy being stuck with loads of other people all day. This was the perfect solution to that problem and way cheaper! Very informative and humorous! Best money we spent on the whole trip!
I cannot offer a more glowing recommendation. Our "guide" spent three days with us touring the Big Island and the combination of directions, explanation of local sites, history, culture, language, etc. never ceased to be interesting. I was dreading the long 2.5 hour ride back from Volcanoes National Park to Kona until I realized I would learn about the history of Hawaii, from initial settlers through statehood, during the trip. It made the time we spent driving in the dark pass quickly. This app is worth far more than the <$10 it currently costs. There were a couple of glitches where a previous track kept repeating at subsequent way points but that was resolved with a simple restart. I've already downloaded the Kauai version as we're heading there next.
Loved it. The family & I have downloaded a few of the Gypsy tours for Hawaii and have enjoyed them all. Great suggestions for places to stop.
Terrific tours, and easy to use app!
Sorry I spent the $8. This app was useless when I toured the Island in a clockwise direction. It's designed to work for a tour in the counter clockwise direction.
I was skeptical to pay the $7 for this app, but it was worth every penny. Very good information about the Big Island. Was like having our own personal tour guide. Told us good places to stop and it gave excellent historical information.
Major Update. Circle tour now goes both ways, all the way around the island. Updated by popular request!
