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

Jay at the beach st location was great the go car tour was fun we modified our tour the map kept us on track and we rejoined the gps tour on the different city tours. Easy easy to drive felt very safe. This was way better than driving my truck through the streets and way easier to park and take... More

What a fun day today with my friend, Mary Ann. We rented the GoCar for 2 hours and saw so much of SF from a different perspective than any other time through "the City". We laughed, honked at tourists, waved to people and toured through Fisherman's Wharf, the Marina, over to the Golden Gate Bridge and Ft Point, down the... More

We rented these out on 8th October and they are a fabulous way of exploring the city in your own time. The first go car GPS navigation went half way through the tour... luckily my partner is a good navigator and managed to get our way back to the store - we had mostly completed everything we just wanted to...

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

We hired 3 of these for a 3:00 run, and when we got there, they said the cars may or may not be available. The cars aren't in great shape, and the tour GPS fell out of ours about five minutes into the tour. Having said that, we had SUCH a blast ripping around San Francisco in these, trying to... 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
