On the way back explore the boutique shopping districts of Chestnut and Union Street and fill the trunk with the latest fashions or stop for a bite to eat.

This was by far the best choice we made. We were exposed to so many different parts of SF that I’m sure we would not have found on our own exploring. Amazing guided tour. The staff were also super friendly and awesome. We headed back to not go over our time and when we returned they allowed us to go back down Lombard street without any additional charges. The cars are super cute and easy to maneuver around. The GPS even Cracked jokes while giving details of the surroundings. I would definitely recommend to a first timer.

Absolutely, without a doubt, the best thing we did in SFO!
We booked online pretty much spur of the moment online, having seen this pop up in a Google search.

We turned up, checked in, which was pretty painless and sat through a safety video, which didn't take to long all.

The cars were all out on view, and right by the video room was a really cool looking electric go car, which the wife and I both thought looked amazing. The staff member said he thought it wad great that we both liked it, and said that it had only been taken out once before, but that he would see if we could take it.

When we came out of the briefing, he showed us through the electric car, and we were free to go!

The car was amazing - could handle steep hills, and had a reverse gear - something the normal cars don't!

The tour was great - took in some great sights and gave plenty of en-route options. Be careful of these though - late charges are steep at $1 per minute and if you take all of the options, you are likely to be late back. Go to twin peaks though - whatever you do, don't miss that!

A great three hours that we will always remember - it makes the open top tour bus look pretty lame!

Great Way to See San Francisco
Our family did the early bird tour and loved it. The cars were easy to drive. They do not go in reverse but were easy to push if you needed to back up for any reason. We rented from the location near Fisherman's Wharf. Friendly staff. GPS tells you exactly where to go and gives you lots of info about what you are seeing. We were only in town for the weekend with no car so this was a fantastic way to cover a lot of ground and see the city in a short amount of time. Loved that you can stop and get out of the vehicle to take pictures and tour at your leisure. Grab a coffee at the Golden Gate Visitor Center (it's so good and I don't even drink coffee). Driving down Lombard Street was awesome! Super fun tour.

DO NOT MISS THIS! BEST TOUR EVER!
We walked by the shop and debated on it, and I'm SO glad we went! I wanted to see just a few places but didn't want to go in a large crowd and didn't want to pay the price for a private tour. This was PERFECT! We got to see so much- all the sites! The GPS Navi made it great and was so full of information. We even drove down Lombard! Staff was so friendly and very helpful.
