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

It's worth every penny. We rented it for the day and we had so much fun. You get to see everything, take it all in and get some interesting information you would not on your own.

Although there were a few issues, we had a very enjoyable 3 hours. The previous reviews are correct, there is no way to finish in the allotted amount of time unless you do not stop or take a few short-cuts. The experience is very fun, driving a sardine can in the open air and seeing the city from a different... More

The car itself is cool. It's like a go cart/scooter cross. The only issue is that the GPS is to quiet when you accelerate and you miss what the car is saying. I did it alone and I think this would be better done with 2 people.

My son and I took a gocar tour, and overall it was great. The only two things I'd warn about is, it's pretty expensive and the GPS isn't programmed to detour around construction sites, so we got a little turned around and took longer to bring the car back because, basically, we were lost. However, the staff was great about... More

We did the two hour loop which is impossible, we parked and got out of the go cars once on our trip, which still meant we were 15 minds late for getting back. As another reviewer says you are encouraged to take the bigger go cars of 150cc which is probably a good thing, but at an extra cost. basically... More

Wish we had gone to check these out sooner! We had seen a few of these Go Cars riding through the streets while we were sightseeing during our 3 days in SF. Unfortunately it wasn't until our last day that we walked by the actual location and decided to go in and check it out. The Go Cars have GPS... More

Great way to see the city. Tough to navigate the traffic at times but the GPS keeps you going in the right direction with great commentary on the city.

Potentially an excellent experience but 'dodgy' in actual practice. We thought we were getting a 150cc vehicle, but just prior to boarding it was mentioned that it was 50cc: but for an extra $10 an hour we could have the vehicle we were anticipating ( difficult to conceive just how a 50 cc vehicle can transport two large adults up...

The service is terrible and staff could not care less about your experience!!! Our GPS broke twice wasting hours of our tour and all they could say was 'well technology breaks' I have complained and they are not interested in helping up! We did not get what we paid for and on that basis I would highly recommend saving your... More

This is a great way to see and experience the city. Do bring sunglasses and sunscreen. We had a blast. There isn't a reverse on the cars, so prepare to "push" backwards. Bring a jacket and dress in layers. We got the car with the bigger engine for the hills. The cars are not allowed on bridges or highways, but... More
