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!

Feeling the wind in your face, smelling the smells, hearing the birds, the sea lions and the city is a nice way to travel. The Narration and directions are actually quite good... read more

This was a great way to see the city, and a lot of fun. The directions and travelogue are well done, but keep it slow or you'll miss important directions. People on the street smile when they see the cute little cars. However... our car had hard seats, a hard suspension, and a very rough engine. I had to stop... More

I booked the 3-hour tour for 1:15 out of the Fisherman's Wharf location. I have to say that I was so, SO excited to do it! We got there at 1:00 per our confirmation email, signed all the waivers, watched the safety video and got our quick overview of how the cars worked. My husband was driving, and I was... More

Feeling the wind in your face, smelling the smells, hearing the birds, the sea lions and the city is a nice way to travel. The Narration and directions are actually quite good and not annoying. Sometimes the speakers are not loud enough to overpower, city noises right next to you. The narration is pretty fast and the 2 hour tour... More

This tour was so much fun. We got it for the whole day and it was worth every penny. I wasn't sure how it would work out with the GPS guide, but it was great. Very easy to understand and follow. We are both bigger people and we fit just fine in it. We did get the 150cc car, which... More

This will put a smile on your face and let you see and learn a whole lot more about SF. I would recommend the 3 or 4 hour tour as the time flies by. The team that rent the vehicle are professional and enthustiastic and the car itself is a doddle to drive. One note is to wear warmer clothing... More

This was a a fantastically fun tour! My mom and her friend had gone a few months back and did nothing but giggle so we had to try it out. The staff is great. We had a gentleman named Scott that helped us get acquainted with the car. He was enthusiastic and really cared that we had a great time.... More

Great way to explore San Fran on wheels. We took the 3 hour GPS guided tour from Fisherman's Wharf & did not feel rushed, allowing us to stop at several locations to take in the views. Induction was very good & carts were easy to drive. So much fun!

My family and I were in San Francisco over this past MLK weekend and ended up doing the tour as a bit of a lark not realizing it would be come the highlight of the trip. We had never heard of the Go Car Tours before and it was our 7 year old daughter who spied them on our first... More

We absolutely loved our GoCar trip today! Had perfect weather. Which gave us a very clear GPS navigation (wouldn't recommend going on a cloudy day, as we first tried). The tour guide (GPS) made the trip. The car was super easy and fun to ride. Staff were very helpful. Must do!
