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!

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!

My 21 year old daughter and I went to San Francisco and Monterrey for her Spring Break. When we travel, we love to do fun excursions and are very active and adventurous. We started with the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours and that is a MUST! Our second day, we rented a Go Car. Our highlight of the whole trip!... More

We had such fun in this little car. Was a great way to see the sights. I would say for your first drive stay to the park and bridge tour way as there is less of the major traffic streets. Information was informative and was just a great way to spend two hours. We got it as a gift and... More

My cousin suggested this and I was hesitant. I am a thrill seeker but this seemed just crazy, running around the city in a yellow egg just waiting to be clobbered by a Prius or worse. Luckily, I agreed to join them and we had a blast, the cars are super easy to drive, everbody not only saw us but... More

This is a terrific way to see the city, at your own pace and in an incredibly unique way. The only time we were stressed out was when we took a wrong turn and found ourselves in bumper to bumper traffic amidst large trucks, buses and cars. Otherwise it was a real hoot and we'd recommend it to anyone looking... More

My family and I had a great time. We booked for 2 hours and didn't think we would be able to fill all that time, but we wished we had done it for longer. Make sure you arrive 10-15 minutes before your reservation. You really want to have a reservation. They get slammed and are not always staffed properly, but... More

The tour starts off in a very busy and populated area by the water, which is stressful when you are trying to figure out how to navigate around traffic and other types of tour vehicles (segways, bikers, etc.). We were given a car that frequently stalled and had extreme difficulty making it up even slightly steep hills. Several times, I... More
