Overview

If you wish to experience the San Francisco most visitors never see, fold up your map, put away the guidebook and jump into a GoCar! Zip around the city while this little yellow car takes you on a GPS-guided tour of San Francisco. Your clever talking car navigates and shows you the way, taking you to places that are not accessible by a tour bus. To top it all, this exciting riding excursion takes place at your pace.

The GoCar is controlled with a motorcycle-style handle, throttle, and hand brakes. The car seats two and has a lockable trunk for your things. The small size of the car enables easy parking. There will be a full tank of gas at start of tour, which is good for 3-4 hours of constant driving. Before starting the tour, an English-speaking guide will orient you on how to drive a GoCar. As you enjoy the drive, it takes you to the best of sites and shares interesting stories that bring the city to life. You can stop for photos, take detours, grab a coffee or break for lunch.
