Full description
If you want to experience the sites most visitors never see then fold up your map, put away the guidebook and jump into a GoCar. Zip all over town in one of San Francisco's iconic yellow cars with the help of GPS-guided tour technology. Your clever talking car navigates and shows you the way – but that’s not all. As you enjoy the drive, it takes you to all the best sites, recommends restaurants, cracks jokes and tells the stories that bring a destination to life.

The early bird special is a unique offer for those willing to wake up before the crowds begin to congregate. Start your tour at either of the two centrally located offices in Union Square or Fisherman's Wharf, close to most downtown hotels. Your GoCar can be picked up as early as 9:00 AM and allows you the freedom to choose your own route - simply follow one of the provided maps or make your own itinerary as the patented GPS-driven tour guide follows along with your route and keeps pace along the way. 

Wind down the world-renown Lombard Street, the most crooked street on the west coast. Explore the city's most famous parks like the Presidio, Crissy Field, and Golden Gate Park, the site of the famous Summer of Love. Snap incredible photos of the Pacific Ocean along Highway 1 and Ocean Beach. Park underneath the Golden Gate Bridge and cross on foot and navigate away from the crowded tour buses beneath the China Town Gate. See the sites, enjoy the Californian sun and choose your own adventure as you explore the city on your own terms.

Comfortable and fun

The vehicle is small and therefore convenient for getting around and parking in the city. We toured all of San Francisco following the path indicated in the GPS tablet supplied without problems. We had a lot of fun to the point of renoleggollo the same afternoon to make the rest of the route that we had not been able to do in the morning. A little expensive but well worth it !!!

My husband kinda chuckled when he saw these and learned this was what we were doing... it became his FAVORITE thing we did our entire trip! The audio with gps is worth $10... best history of anything we did. We didn’t want to be with the other 4 cars so we got to the front and took off and had a BLAST! We got to see all over San Francisco on our timeline so we stopped to explore more where we wanted to and skipped other areas we didn’t care to have more time.. we even took a detour into China’s town to try Dim Sum from the locals and it was well worth it- we used our gps when we we were close and then to get back on track- it was super easy! We also loved that the lady talking to us could’ve heard at all times without any struggle - the put a lot of thought into creating this experience... if they have these in other countries we Will Defiwntly be doing this again! Worth it! Also, sign up for 9 am so you get the 3 hours for 2 hour price! Worth it 100 PERCENT!

Tour on your own.. perfect option!!!!!

This was our first experience with these go cars. This was our first trip to San Francisco and not knowing all the transit options we choose to venture out to a few locations on our own. This was ideal as you can stop and go as you choose within the time you rent of course. Love the vocal GPS system which highlights points of interests. The only suggestion would be to have a mapping option that you can enter in specific addresses, but you can use your phone's driving directions app as an alternative. Love the experience and will repeat if given the option. Staff at Beach street was GREAT.
