Owner description: 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!

We really enjoyed the guided tour aspect and the zippy cars. It is a great way to see the city. There were a few mechanical hiccups on one of the machines that we were using and Peter (he works at the downtown location, Irish accent) was EXTREMELY helpful. He took care of any and all issues professionally and he made... More

GoCar tours are a really fun way to get around San Francisco. The GPS guided tour is informative and easy to follow taking you to the perfect vantage point for the Golden Gate bridge and other popular attractions. At the booking office Esther is super knowledgeable and friendly so definitely go visit her and book a tour, you won't regret... More

My daughter (who lives in the City) and I took a 2-hour GoCar trip during a recent visit. I've done Segways, Duck Tours, Big Buses, etc. Nothing compares to the GoCar experience. San Francisco is a highly tourable City due to its compact size. Thus, in 2-3 hours, you can see a lot of what San Francisco has to offer.... More

I have been to SF a few times before, but never like this. This was the absolute best way to see the City. My boyfriend and I wanted a fun way to see the city, and boy am I glad that we did the GoCar. It was a self-paced GPS guided tour, and boy was our "tour guide" funny and... More

This is only our second trip to this amazing city and this time we wanted to see the city with better transportation than our feet but certainly did not want to try and drive a real car. the GoCar was the perfect solution, and we...

We were first timers to San Fran and wanted to get an idea of what San Fran had to offer without the crowds often experienced on the more conventional bus tours; what a great decision!! We effectively conducted a self-paced, GPS guided tour of the majority of San Francisco’s main attractions with our personal tour guide providing audio descriptions of... More

We did not feel safe in the middle of busy traffic at San Francisco. My wife and I rented a GoCar for a tour of SanFrancisco. After a quick introductory video, we were at the wheels of a larger GoCar. The GPS was NOT very proactive in providing guidance among the tall buildings in San Francisco. In addition, given the...

We took a Go-car tour after I talked the wife into it by explaining it was a great way to see the city in a short time. These little three wheeled Hi-Viz yellow trikes are GPS guided and the instructions are fairly easy to follow even for a middle aged Brit abroad. We took the larger engined version to keep... More

As first-timers in SF, before we did our GoCar tour, we really had no idea how much this city had to offer in the way of attractions. On a warm day, this tour is so much fun! If you're confident in driving the car around amongst traffic, it's a fun way to explore San Francisco, without the annoyances that come... More
