GoCar, the World’s First Storytelling CarFold up the map – put away the guidebook – and prepare for a city adventure you won’t soon forget! These clever yellow talking convertibles navigate for you, point out the sights, and tell you about the city’s culture and history. But that’s not all – your GoCar mobile tour guide has a personality and a human voice – it cracks jokes, recommends the good restaurants, and tells you the stories that bring the city to life. It’s like having a “local” give you a private guided tour.GoCar gives clear driving directions using GPS satellite technology. Just follow the friendly audio directions and relax!

A friend and I along with our 2 college age daughters rented 2 cars from the Fisherman's Wharf location. We did the Golden Gate Bridge and Parks tours and we started out first thing in the morning 9-10 a.m. I highly recommend this tour and time mostly due to less traffic along the route with more open roadways. I will... More

GoCars was a fun experience for my husband and I on our recent trip to San Francisco. We got the faster car (highly recommend) and had a blast going through the city. We were able to go places the tour buses cannot go. We could stop any where we wanted and check out the scenery. We learned a lot on... More

Last Sunday, I rented a Gocar and I had a blast. My sister rented one with her boyfriend, and I rented one with my cousin. We drove around the city, and I cannot wait to rent again. The staff was so friendly. Scott and Ray explained the whole process to us, and they were super nice and caring. They explained... More

My wife and I were kinda iffy about the idea originally cause we like to do the non-touristy things and kinda not stick out like "hey thats a tourist there". So we booked this tour kinda with that in mind. We did a 9am tour which was perfect due to the SF traffic can hectic at times and the tour... More

We wanted a way to see the city without being trapped in a large group or bus. I was recommended this by a friend and it was a blast! We upgraded to the 150cc which I would recommend because I couldn't imagine having anything lass powerful out there! The first car we took the GPS didn't turn on correctly so... More

We came to San Fran on the whim. Saw one of these GoCar's swing around the corner and instantly talked to the tour shop on the corner. They assisted us in getting an instant reservation. When we got there, we were greeted by Dennis and Jamoria. They were the greatest guys ever. They explained everything in detail and warned us... More

Fun to drive, easy to navigate, and yet another way to fall in love with the city. The staff were helpful and friendly. Request the faster car! We enjoyed the speaker, which guides you through the city and gives info about landmarks - Unfortunately, the speaker went out during the trip. If we would have been smart, we would have... More

This was great fun! The staff gave quick and clear instructions and we were off for our three-hour GPS guided tour. Next time we will hire one for a day so that we can visit other sites not on the scheduled tour, and spend more time exploring.

These cars are great, I agree that you need the 150cc model, hills are steep! I was a bit worried to begin with, but soon got the hang of the vehicle and training video and staff were helpful. Only did the hour tour which was great to see marine area and to drive down Lombard, quite an experience! Overall a... More

This is a fun and informative adventure BUT they have 2 models of cars, make sure you get the 150cc model. We did not know this and they stuck us in the 50cc model which was not capable of making up the hills on the route. I had to get out and push! The GPS is only ok but maybe... More
