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 rented the GoCars for 3 hours and wish we had more time. The cars needed a little TLC. The staff was excellent! Plan on doing it again!

We rented the car for 5 1/2 hours (all day) This is such a fun way to see the city. Being in an open car you see things above you that you would normally miss being in a car and at the slower pace you can enjoy it much better. We had fun of other tourists taking our picture as... More

We took the two hour tour, our time was packed with seeing local sites. The GPS tour was helpful. If we were to do this again would take the more powerful GoCar, the regular ones are a bit slow off the mark. Overall, would definitely recommend.

I have been meaning to write this review for months: 1. GPS navigation is easy to use and informative, I learned so much about my city even though I have lived here for several years. 2. Staff is very helpful and kind! 3. Best and most efficient way to see the city. Tip: Make a reservation in advance. These tours... More

A group of us rented a number of GoCars earlier this month to tour San Francisco. Crazy experience! We took the two hour tour through the Marina District and The Presidio. These things don't go very fast (slower than the other vehicles on the street) but the drivers of San Francisco don't seem to be bothered by them. We have... More

Without a doubt, this was the most memorable thing we did on this trip to SF! We are a family of 4 adults (kids are now 21), so we rented two cars from the Mason St location and drove past the Golden Gate bridge, through Golden Gate Park, to Twin Peaks to see the most amazing view of San Francisco....

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

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
