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 had no problems negotiating our way around in these. We left from city area and went to the bay. We did the whole trip and ended back in the city area. Keep watch on time as it goes quickly. We had the discount code from online and this covered the optional insurances. They get around quite zippy just the... More

This is a great way to see all the sites in a timely manner! We didn't have to wait in line, sit on a tour bus, or listen to some boring voice guided tour! We hopped in and cruised the city seeing points of interest like the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park, Alcatraz, And Fisherman's Wharf. The GoCars are... More

I brought the girlfriend on the trip and it was perfect. The only thing I wish I could have done differently was to order the 3 hour tour instead of two. Would definitely recommend this for a couple!

The customer service is very bad. Like truly a putty. I was appalled by the lack of customer care. I went to return the car and no one knew how to close the trip. The person working there said that she wasn't trained to close the end of the ride. I just don't understand how an establishment cannot train their... More

I've been to San Francisco a few times and have seen these cars running around. I came down this time with my dad and he has some respiratory issues. He had seen the cars go by a few times and mentioned how cool he thought they were so I decided to book a trip. Best decision I made all weekend!!!... More

It was kind of small since I am a big guy, but my wife and I had soooo much fun and the guided tour was very informative. We took our time and enjoyed every minute of it! The people in the office were very nice. We had booked for 10 am and a storm blew in. They rescheduled with us... More

This is the second time my wife and I had taken the gocar tour, and this time we brought the kids (7 & 9 yrs). They enjoyed it as much as we did. Great views of the city are achievable on the 3-hour loop. We chose to visit twin peaks and the view was fantastic. See the city and get... More

The only reason this is not 5 stars was due to the long wait to actually get into the little car. The staff was mostly helpful, but could be a little more friendly. We took the red line tour that took you by the Golden Gate Bridge and down Lombard Street. It was so much fun and a unique way... More
