"1 day in city and Go Car gave us the grand tour!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 17, 2019
We were limited on time and decided to rent since it was the warmest day of the year last week. Also the cable cars were down for maintenance and boy am I glad they were. It was so much fun riding around the city and listening to the guided tour inside the car. We would have never experienced all of this by foot or bus. Our tour was mod day so traffic was not bad. We did a little over 3 hours and it was under $200. It would have been more for a private tour and the go car was perfect. Do this, you will not regret. Staff was awesome as well!!

We saw these little 3 wheelers rinning around near pier 39. We thought they would be cool to do but had already made plans so did not use.

You know how everyone always says, "We should rent those GoCars someday". Well, my wife and I rented one on my birthday and had a great time. We were fortunate to have a warm sunny in day in San Francisco. We cruised all over SF enjoying the audio tour of various places in the City. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Wow! Wow! Wow! This is definitely the best way to travel around the city and see all of the attractions that you could possibly want to see! We absolutely loved the experience of driving in the cool yellow cab and we had the iPad version which was amazing in helping us get around the city and also acts as a tour guide with all of the useful information! Do the red route for a truly great trip! We will be looking to do this in a different city know as we had so much fun!
