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! « less

Three years ago my husband and I did a GoCars tour on our honeymoon and it was a fantastic experience, this time with 6 of our friends, unfortunately it wasn't. We pre-booked 4 GoCars from the Beach Street branch and picked up our cars absolutely fine. We were offered some more powerful GoCars, but as we had done it before... More

after the car flipped over, roll bar collapsed and I suffered a broken neck. I would never suggest anyone rent one. Severely underpowered. At least 10 times my son had to jump out to push the car to get started after stopping on a road with a little incline. Dangerous when turning. It rolled over while traveling less than 10... More

We had a gift certificate and had been looking forward to this tour after our daughter had recommended it. We made reservations at Fisherman's Wharf. We declined the upgrade of the bigger motor at 20 more per hour. Paperwork and a short safety video had us with seat belts and helmets on. We had a map of the area and... More

We walked off the street and met a girl behind the counter. She could not have been less friendly if she tried. We knew we wanted to do the tour. If we weren't too interested then the Girl (Esther) would have put us off. The tour itself was fab. Great way to see the city. The gps guidance is very... More

We were a bit apprehensive in hiring these first as neither one of us had driven in the States before. However, once we got going, we found other vehicles were really patient with us. The GPS system was really easy to follow and we found the cars were easy to use. We got the 'sport' car which has a top... More

This is a really nice way to see the city. We booked the 3-hour tour, saw the golden gate bridge, the painted ladies, the croockedest street and many other features of San Francisco. All with great support of the GPS guided tour. You can do it all on your own speed, there are several choices on extra detours or cut... More

This is our second time using gocar, this time was quiet a bad experience: First of all, we are local from near SF. We are very familiar with the city and we just wanted to have a fun day using the gocar again! We reserved our go car 50cc (faster version) to be picked up from union square and returned... More

If I had done this first I would not have spent money on the hop on hop off bus. We got the larger engine car and kept it for 3 hrs so it was pricey but some of the most fun I have had touring a city and we travel a good deal. From to Warf to the Bridge to... More

My wife and I did a whole day trip. We spent 6-7 hours on the tour. We did everything except the twin towers. We stopped several times during the tour. It was entertaining and fun. The car wasn't perfect and neither was the guide but close enough to be enjoyable.

We rented 2-150cc cars during our visit on 8/16/14 and had a blast touring the city. We saw so much of the city that we would not have had time to tour because we were only in SF for 3 days. I had read the reviews beforehand so we were a little skeptical. I have to agree the staff at... More
