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

I would rather give this 3.5 stars than just 3 or 4. It was a fun experience, but I wouldn't do it again. We had 2 GoCars and took our two kids (age 10 and 12). Riding around in the little yellow 3 wheel scooter like thing feels a little silly. We got the more powerful GoCars and were glad... More

Bridget D the manager helped us, very nice and explained everything, we got the upgraded car, more power, great for going up hills, my girlfriend and I had a blast, gps lets you know where to turn to keep you on track, the only downfall was our gps fell out from underneath so we didn't have for about 20 mins...

My husband and I just spent 3 days in San Francisco. I wanted a way to show him as much of the city as possible in a short time. We heard about the GoCars. We LOVED it. They are a hoot! We took the "tour" for all day. The GPS is very good at telling you where to go, what... More

Fun drive around the city. GPS gave you some fun information about different parts of the city. Definitely helps to have a co-navigator with their smart phone GPS out in case you drift off course as the GPS part of the tour is audio only and just stops working of you take a wrong turn! But overall a great adventure... More

Our brakes went out and we almost crashed. The company did not care and when came for vehicle after waiting over an hour showed no intetest. They got the money and do not care about safety of users. Do not take children on this and we say don't use the service.

We rented two of the higher end cars impromptu. We only had two hours to spare which turns out to not have been enough time. After doing all of the paperwork, watching the videos and getting instructions, 30 minutes of our available 2 ours was already gone. Then we found out that we needed to take a short cut back... More

This is a blast. It is a great way to see the city. As with all things, if you step up a bit, you have a MUCH better experience. First, get the better car, its worth it. Second, get enough time, and realize that if you get out every time the GPS narrator suggests to, you won't make it back... More

Picture it: a little yellow 2 seater powered by a 150cc motor bike engine. A mommy and 11 year old in one car, daddy and 7 year in one and sister visiting from another country following behind - who has never driven in the right hand lane, let alone in the USA (AKA scared witless) - riding the streets of...

The concept here is really good but the GPS did not work well enough and the car cannot go off it's pre planned route because the engine is so feeble that it cannot climb the hills. Even before the GPS tried to take me over the Golden Gate Bridge (!) the car got stuck on a hill and my son... More

I went on a GoCar guided tour with my husband. The engines aren't much to speak of in terms of speed, but there was plenty of room for two medium sized people (we're both 5'9). The tour is guided in English by a radio station and you get to see all of the most popular and famous places of San... More
