An innovative way to enhance your road trip, GyPSy Guide is a small device that you plug into your car or RV stereo and it automatically plays commentary on the best things to see and do as they come into view. A team of professional tour guides has filled GyPSy Guide with stories, facts, tips and advice to make sure you don’t miss any of the best attractions and sightseeing. The audio is recorded by real people and plays as you drive, just like listening to the radio.

Download this guide for a helpful narration when navigating Yosemite Valley. There are interesting stories, facts and points of interest to stop at. This was very helpful on our trip. We also used the Las Vegas Hoover Dam tour which was also very helpful !!
