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!

2 hours sightseeing in San Francisco wasn't enough!! Excellent way to see the city. Amanda Ratcliff dealt with all my queries & questions before we arrived - she was brilliant. We combined the go-cars with Alcatraz - a definite must. Highly recommend this company.

I have driven and ridden around sanfrancisco several times in previous visits. The problem is that you really cannot experience the city from a car due to the big hills. Not so with the GoCar. The open carts give a great 360 degree view. We took the 3 hour tour the included a drive along the harbor, the Golden Gate... More

Very friendly and professional. My car malfunctioned and they picked me up and the car and issued a full refund. I'll be a repeat customer for sure!

We made reservations at a "third party" location, paid $40 for two cars and was directed to the main place at Fisherman s Wharf. Our reservation was for 3:30 but they told us to arrive at 3:00. It was 1:30 so we had to kill two hours. We wandered around, which was fine but we had other parts of the... More

Great vehicles, we took 2 vehicles. It's, to us, a great way to visit the city and the park. The gps works at a lot of places, so you get always historical information!! Must do and very convenient!!

We were walking down the street and saw these cool yellow mini cars. After doing a 35km bike ride the previous day there was still so much to see in the city but we didn't want to ride our bikes. We ended up riding renting the cars and had an absolute blast!!! The cars are equipped with a gps which... More

Highly recommend this experience and company. I rented a GoCar 4 years ago with my daughter (we did the 2 hour), gave my brother a 3 hour rental for his birthday when he visited in Sept 2016 and just rented all day in October with my wife. Get there early and rent all day. If it is not your cup... More

My husband and I visited San Francisco in December 2015 and we pre-booked our GoCar experience. It was one of the best things we did in the area. I have recommended this trip to many other visitors personally since our trip. The Go-Car is basically a motorcycle with a go-cart body on it. We were a very tight fit, but... More

Highly recommend!! I've been going to San Francisco for years but saw parts of the city I've never seen before on this awesome tour. Self guided by GPS so you can go at your leisure. Luckily we went on a beautiful sunny weekday so crowds were minimal. Staff (Storm, James and Scott) were all so friendly and helpful. Can't wait... More
