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!

My nephew and I did this instead of the segway tour (he didn't weigh enough). It was a ton of fun and a great way to see the city. We did the red line tour which does not include the downtown area (thats the blue line and a different tour). Best part was the audio which gave information as you... More

The route we took included both city and coastal areas. We went on a beautiful summer morning, and only brought the lightest of jackets. As it turned out, it was freezing cold by the coast, particularly since we were flying along at 40 MPH in an open vehicle. We actually left the guided coastal route in order to get back... More

My 13 yr old daughter and I have been wanting to do this for months. I live locally in the Bay Area, and have always thought it looked like a fun way to view SF. Indeed, it didn't disappoint. More than ample speed and pickup for traffic (maxes out ~50mph, although 98% of the time you never have to go... More

Let me first say that I am an experienced motorcycle rider and have ridden all sizes of bikes from 50cc to 500cc. If you're not careful or even if you are, these 3 wheeled units can easily go out of control and rollover. Notice that even in their ads they have massive roll bars on them. They are basically 49cc... More

First off, in general get a City Pass of Go San Fransisco card before you come to town. These are a huge value, especially for Canadians as you buy them at Costco online and pay in Canadian dollars. We went for the 1 hot tour (included on our card). This actually won't get you far, one quick stop at beach... More

What a great way to see the sights of San Francisco and a great idea. We had a 2 hour rental with a guide and it was spot on. We saw many sights including the Golden Gate Bridge and we drove down Lombard Street etc. The only reason it's not top marks is because the second half of our group... More

The car itself was great but we wished we had our time. The staff argued over ' who will sort them out'. We were then told be back by 6 or it's a dollar every minute over. We didn't get much time to enjoy as stress to return car. Guy also thought funny the GPS takes you to wrong return... More

It was great. We started off at the Fisherman's Wharf location, all the staff was very friendly - ESPECIALLY Cyp. He went out of his way to help us and it worked out that we got a car when we thought there would be a longer wait or no availability. The tour was wonderful, got to see lots of costumes... More
