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!

My wife and I used the GoCars this month, July 2015, and back in 2007. It is ever better now. The staff, Dan and Ray, were very professional and knowledge. They have a standard model and have also added a more powerful sport model which handled the hills in SF better than the last time we were here. The best... More

The most fun ever, my bff and I went and had an absolutely great time. Staff were friendly and helpful. Saw parts of San Francisco that had never seen on previous trips and the narration was great. Got lost once but not a big deal, turned around and off we went again. Try it you won't be dissapointed.

So worth it! We got to see all of the city and that wouldn't be possible without doing this tour! So much fun! I recommended it to a friend who went this past weekend and said she had a blast as well! Will definitely look for something like this in every city I visit

OMG ... GoPro has to be "The Best" way to tour San Francisco. This two seater motor bike is fun, safe and ideal to experience the sights and sounds of the city. It had enough umph to get up and down the hills. We even went down Lombard St. ( The famed Crooked St.). Also the staff at GoPro on... More

The GoCar tour was the best tour and most fun ever! We took the 3 hour tour and saw all of San Francisco! The self paced ability to be able to stop when you wanted to take pictures was great. I highly recommend that you use the Fisherman Wharf location.

My brother, nephew, mother and I rented 2 GoCars to ride around the city with to explore a different way to see San Francisco. We rented the lower powered vehicles. Next time we will try the higher powered models, which I definitely recommend. They were pretty easy to navigate and super fun. We felt like mini-celebrities cruising around the city... More

We just did a one hour tour, but wish we had reserved ahead for a longer time. 3 to 4 hours would be ideal for the longer route. The GPS guidance added some fun facts to the tour that we wouldn't have gotten driving the same route in our car. Worth it to spring for the sportier model for more... More

I was a little nervous booking because of mixed reviews but am really glad we did. Everyone at the Fisherman's Wharf location was excellent, especially Jan who helped us out. My boyfriend and I did the 3 hour tour on a Thursday afternoon and didn't finish our route because there was so much to see. We got a more "powerful"... More
