“Absolute Blast”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

This was a really fun way to see Miami though probably not a good choice for those who get rattled by things not going exactly as expected. The GPS cut out several times (probably due to the cloudy/rainy day) and we got lost several times. At one point, we ended up on a way too busy street for the little car, which was a bit of an interesting thrill moment. We got back on track fairly quickly each time with the map they provided. Once, we had to go back to the GoCar place to have the GPS reset. Even with the hilarious GPS issues, and rain, we had a great time and enjoyed the tour. We also had some trouble with the reservation. My friend who had arranged the rental said she tried to call the local office several times and only got a ringing phone. They were able to give us a car when we got there though so all went fine.

“Great fun! And learned a lot about South Beach!!!”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

We just got back from our GoCar tour of South Beach - and we had a blast! Joseph was terrific, and really helpful getting us ready for our ride. The car is a lot of fun to drive. And we can't imagine anyplace better for a GoCar tour than South Beach. We did the 1-hour tour, but were finished in 30 minutes. So we went a second time around! Learned a lot about some of the more colorful and well-known spots - especially on Ocean Drive. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! (Note: we are residents of Broward County and very familiar with South Beach. Still this was worth every penny!) Thanks, Joseph!

“Here I Come!”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

We booked a one hour tour, wished it had been longer. It was delightful having tourists watch as we rode by. I perfected the royal wave to acknowledge the interesting stares. Whenever we saw others taking the trip, we relived our delight.

“Most exhilarating, fun, history snipets tour we enjoyed buzzing around in this bright Yellow tri-wheeled GO Car!”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

Go Car was such a fun way to tour all over Miami... Johnny was very friendly and very good to give us super easy operating instructions...The Go Car turn by turn directions accompanied by spinets of history and interesting facts as we passed each point of interest, surpassed our expectations. The volume and clarity of the self-guided tour is exemplary - very good over road noise. Our 3hr ride went by all too fast...we even had time to park and take in the Jewish Memorial Museum as suggested in the tour. We saw a variety of neighborhoods and shopping areas... we blew our horn... we waved ...and turned other tourists heads! Loved seeing the Jackie Gleason Theatre and Lincoln Rd shopping and dining hot spots.

“Terrible customer service!”
Reviewed 1 January 2012

Make sure you make reservations directly with the franchaise owner. We made reservation with GoCar headquarters in San Francisco and when we arrived for our full day GoCar tour they said they did not have our reservations but could accomodate us the next day. The next day we arrived and the cars were not there. We had to wait for an hour for them to arrive. When they did arrive one did not have oil in it and the other did not have a GPS that worked. They told us to wait for them to come fix it. It took the technician 1/2 hour to get to us. This is a fun tour but they only have a few cars and they are in terrible condition. Make sure to check that everything works before you get in. If there is any lights on or if the GPS is slow to start make sure they fix it before you leave their store.
