Highlights include the hike to Clingmans Dome, driving the historic Cades Cove loop dotted with pioneer churches, cabins and a working mill, plus where to watch for wildlife such as bears, elk, salamanders and fireflies.

"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 service to automatically play entertaining commentary about the behind-the-scenes stories, historical events and notable geologic formations as you drive. In doing so, it tells you about upcoming sights, so you have time to make an informed decision as to whether you want to stop. Because the app relies on your phones GPS signal, not cell towers, no cell, network or WiFi is required while touring.
