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!

We decided to give these a go after seeing numerous yellow cars whizzing around Fisherman's Wharf. We were not disappointed. We hired 2 cars - I drove 1 with my 17 year old daughter as a passenger, and my husband drove the other with our 13 year old son. The cars have a Sat Nav that tells you which route... More

I took my teenage son on this tour (Golden Gate Bridge tour from Fisherman's Wharf location on Beach tt.) last month and we both loved it so much that I cam back on my return trip. My friend from the area joined me with his son (he wouldn't be caught dead in those yellow tourist menaces without his son to... More

Firstly this review would have been higher but for one thing.... The concept is a good idea. They are a great way to see San Francisco. The cars are probably 2 stroke and are definitely underpowered for the hills. The GPS takes you around the streets in ways to try and avoid this issue but the cars certainly do hold... More

We decided to do a city tour with gocar. It's fantastic fun and gps commentary worked perfectly and was very informative. We will be doing gocars in other cities when we get the chance. It's worth noting that in San Francisco 3 hours is a must, you'll miss too much with only 2 hours.... you also want the 150cc cars,... More

An initially daunting idea but an overall fantastic experience and a nice way to feel aquatinted with the city. Definite highlight would be driving down Lombard Street.

I can't even describe how much fun we had driving this little yellow GoCar!!!! The car navigate you through San Francisco, says which turn to take, where to stop, tells about a place you are passing! It's like a tour but just for two of you!

I've never been one to enjoy city tours anywhere, but this was an awesome experience! YOU control where YOU want to go and where you want to detour, and the cars are a lot of fun to drive. Worth every penny. Storm was very friendly and helpful with any questions we had regarding the cars and VERY knowledgeable about the... More

We enjoyed the GoCars so much a couple of years ago that we had to go again. Bright sunny Sunday morning (forgot hat and got sunburn!) was perfect - my top tip is to hire these on Sunday when the traffic is pretty light and relaxed. The cars ran well, gps was spot on and we loved our cruise around... More

We were bought a trip on the GoCars as a Christmas present ahead of our May trip to San Francisco and what a great present it was. We spotted the bright yellow GoCars not long after arriving in San Francisco and could not help but laugh as they do look a little ridiculous and everyone was staring at them. We... More

This was one of the funniest mornings we had in SF lots of laughs!! Next time I rent the cars however I will do a little better planning ahead of time. You need more than 2 hours and you need to bring a jacket, it was really cold!!
