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!

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!

What could have been a fun afternoon was marred by technical difficulties. We only made it a couple of blocks before we realized the sound system in our car had a short. The speakers were cutting in and out making it impossible to hear the directions or commentary. We went back to the office, where it took some time to... More

Wow, wow, wow! This was a blast!! We are on our first ever trip to San Francisco and decided to try the GoCar, GPS guided tour. It was incredible. Patrick and Ray at the Union Square rental location were very helpful. The GPS tour includes interesting information about different parts of the tour, but it wasn't over the top, as... More

There's so much fun to be had zipping around in these zesty little yellow cars. Safe, fun, exciting in one little car!

Hands down the best way to see San Francisco. We had so much fun and saw way more than we could do any other way. We plan on doing it again on our next trip here. Heads up though, if you go when it's cold, take a blanket. Ray, at the Union Square location, was very helpful when we picked... More

Not to be missed experience! Absolutely great fun, we opted for a two hour hire which in one way was too short, but then again the seats are not so comfortable for a longer period. It's takes a little time to get set up, with the paperwork and intro video, so allow 15/20 mins or so. I'd recommend you book... More

We were in SF on vacation with 2 teenage boys, so we reserved 2 of the upgraded GoCars. They have some older models that go slower, and the newer ones with more horsepower. We arrived about 20 minutes early, which was perfect, because you need to fill out forms, watch a video, get fitted for helmets and go over everything... More
