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 did a 3 hour plus tour of San Francisco in one of these zippy little machines and it was a great way to see the city and surrounding area, especially as we were only there for 2 1/2 days. Being used to driving on the other side of the road in our home country it was... More

Four girl friends have been going on an annual trip for 15 years. This year we went to San Franscico. We Rented Go Cars for 3 hours to see the sites. We had sooooo much fun!! The trip is audio narrated. It is the best way to see SF. We went thru Golden Gate Bridge park, Lombard Street, the water,... More

Took a good 2 hour tour on Saturday May 9th exploring Crissy Field, Golden Gate and other sights of San Francisco. Instructions and help from Moe, Patrick, Ray and Dennis were helpful to get use started. The GPS was right on and the narratives very informative. Navigating the hilly streets was fun and easy. The one thing that we did... More

We had fun! The staff encouraged us to call if we had any issues when we were on our tour. As it turns out, the GPS navigator stopped working for us at Golden Gate Bridge. We did not call, but found out later that it is not uncommon for this to happen. Others complained of the same problem at the... More

We did this tour on a Saturday morning, May 09. The tour overall was ok. We had a problem with the GPS, it would cut in and out so we missed a lot of information. We went back to the station and they told us it was because it was early in the morning and sometimes it was slow?!?!? We... More

This is one of the best ways to see the city! Ray, Scott & Nic were great and were really helpful during our rental. I live in the city and wanted to take visiting friends on a fun tour - this is definitely the way to do it!

This was a fun new way to experience the city. The GPS guided tour was interesting and informative. The little cars attract lots of attention as you zoom around the city. We live in the area and learned things about various parts of the city that we didn't know and points of interest that were interesting. My only complaint was... More

We got the 3-hr tour and it was really cool. It is kind of intimidating when they show you the go-kart and you have to start driving among all the normal cars on the street but you get used to it quickly. We went to a bunch of places and had a chance to stop and take pics (you can... More

My friend and I were a bit hesitant to do GoCar at first. After the re-assurance from Oliver from the counter, we were so glad we did it. Never will we forget driving down the Lombard Crooked Street and hilly streets of San Francisco via GoCar. Fun factor is perfect 10!
