YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK – GYPSY GUIDE
America’s first National Park – Yellowstone, continues to awe visitors with amazing geothermal features like geysers, boiling mud, fumaroles and hot springs are abundant throughout the park, as well as spectacular mountains, lakes, canyons and rivers.
It is also home to a diverse range of wildlife including grizzly bears, bison, wolves, elk and pronghorn.
All the major attractions are on or near the Grand Loop Drive which circles the Park in a figure 8.
Since there are 5 entrances to the Park we have designed the GyPSy Guide driving tour guide so you can join the tour anywhere along the Grand Loop, and you can drive in either direction.

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK ROUTE MAP
Indicate our suggested start locations, or join the tour anywhere along the route and as you pass through the next point, commentary will trigger automatically.
Where does the tour start?
There are 5 separate entrances to Yellowstone. Our tour focuses on the Grand Loop drive and whichever entrance you use, the first commentary begins approximately 10-15 minutes before reaching the junction where you join the Grand Loop.
West Yellowstone. It takes about 25 minutes to drive from the gate that is beside the town before you reach the Grand Loop. Launch the tour once you have driven approximately 10 minutes inside the park. The small sign for Riverside Drive is a good place to launch the tour.
Gardiner. Launch the tour as you drive through town. The first commentary begins as you approach the Roosevelt Arch.
Silver Gate, North East Entrance. Its a long approach to the Grand Loop through the Lamar Valley. Watch for herds of Bison along the way. Launch the tour once you see the Lamar Ranger Station. First commentary will be about 5 minutes ahead.
Cody. This is a long approach to the Loop. Launch the tour when you see the turn off to the Lake Butte Overlook. You will be starting to get great views of Yellowstone Lake. First commentary is about 1.5 miles past the overlook.
Grand Teton South Entrance. Launch the tour about 10 minutes after entering the park. The first commentary is about 2 minutes past the Lewis Lake Campground.
Is this the same tour as is included in the Yellowstone - Grand Teton Combo?
Yes it is. If you are visiting both Parks, then the Combo Tour is the best value option. That tour also included the transition drive between the 2 Parks.
Sorry, there is not way to upgrade this tour to the Combo Tour.
I've read there is very little cell service in the Park - will that effect the tour?
Absolutely not. Its true that cellular network signal is very limited in the Park. Your GyPSy Guide tour only uses your location while you are driving. This is from the free GPS signal that comes from satellites – it does not come from cell networks. Your location is always available even where there is no cell coverage.
I'm not from the USA - will I need data? Its expensive!
There is no requirement for any data or wifi network connection while you drive. The app only requires the FREE GPS signal to operate. You can leave your Cellular Data function turned off – the tour will still work.
What should I bring?
Its important to keep charging your device as you drive and we recommend using a DC cigarette lighter-style of charger. Plugging directly into the vehicle’s USB port is not recommended.
Fill up your gas tank and bring some food & drinks. Binoculars make wildlife viewing even better.
Water, sunscreen and sturdy shoes if hiking.
Don’t forget your smile and camera.
