Owner description: 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 great fun! The staff gave quick and clear instructions and we were off for our three-hour GPS guided tour. Next time we will hire one for a day so that we can visit other sites not on the scheduled tour, and spend more time exploring.

These cars are great, I agree that you need the 150cc model, hills are steep! I was a bit worried to begin with, but soon got the hang of the vehicle and training video and staff were helpful. Only did the hour tour which was great to see marine area and to drive down Lombard, quite an experience! Overall a... More

This is a fun and informative adventure BUT they have 2 models of cars, make sure you get the 150cc model. We did not know this and they stuck us in the 50cc model which was not capable of making up the hills on the route. I had to get out and push! The GPS is only ok but maybe... More

The staff at GoCar are fantastic - we had both Patrick and Dennis help us. Even when our GPS broke down, they took excellent care of us both during and after the experience.

We rented the GoCars for 3 hours and wish we had more time. The cars needed a little TLC. The staff was excellent! Plan on doing it again!

We rented the car for 5 1/2 hours (all day) This is such a fun way to see the city. Being in an open car you see things above you that you would normally miss being in a car and at the slower pace you can enjoy it much better. We had fun of other tourists taking our picture as... More

We took the two hour tour, our time was packed with seeing local sites. The GPS tour was helpful. If we were to do this again would take the more powerful GoCar, the regular ones are a bit slow off the mark. Overall, would definitely recommend.

I have been meaning to write this review for months: 1. GPS navigation is easy to use and informative, I learned so much about my city even though I have lived here for several years. 2. Staff is very helpful and kind! 3. Best and most efficient way to see the city. Tip: Make a reservation in advance. These tours... More

A group of us rented a number of GoCars earlier this month to tour San Francisco. Crazy experience! We took the two hour tour through the Marina District and The Presidio. These things don't go very fast (slower than the other vehicles on the street) but the drivers of San Francisco don't seem to be bothered by them. We have... More
