San Francisco GoCar Adventure

Experience a Thrilling Tour of San Francisco in a GoCar For Two

5 stars rating 5 Reviews
participantsparticipants Price for 2 Participants

Enjoy one of the most exciting San Francisco tours from behind the wheel of a GoCar! The GoCar is the world's first computer-guided storytelling car. The clever talking car navigates for you, but that's not all. As you and your guest drive, it points out the sights and tells you the stories that bring San Francisco to life.

These cars are smart. An on-board computer and a GPS-system do the thinking so you can actually relax and take in the sights. Best of all, the adventure happens at your pace. You and your guest can stop for photos, take detours, grab a coffee or break for lunch. Or you both can blaze your own trail and explore the city streets, neighborhoods and parks on your own.

GoCars and the cell house audio tour are available in several different languages including English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. This experience is a great way to show your out-of-town friends around, learn a bit more about your own city, and if you're a visitor – there is simply no better way to experience San Francisco.

More fun than we thought

 Great fun, something we would do again. Need the bigger engine for anything except the 1 hour tour to the bridge. Our adventure was a gift and a great taster. We would reckoned to visitors.

San Francisco Go Car Adventure 

5 stars

 This was a very fun tour and the GPS and narration was totally coordinated with where we were. The tour gave several options along the way of different ways to turn to do different tours or return to the Start. The only negative was that they could have made the narration a bit more interesting in terms of stories that make history come alive, a little sense of humor, or something along that line. But I would definitely recommend this tour for both locals and tourists.

Go Cars! 

4 stars

 We had a TERRIFIC time touring in the Go Car! We are Bay Area residents, so have seen a lot of SF :-), but the Go Car took us on routes that we had never been on. In essence seeing the City from a different vantage point. Because the Go Car can only go up to 30 (and really 15-20 going up an incline/small hill) the Car cleverly navigates around the City on many perimeter streets, to get you to all of the sights you want to see, GG Bridge, Chrissy Field, GG Park, Haight Ashbury, Richmond District, many Forts, several Beaches (we'd never even heard of East Beach...gorgeous). We paid for 3 hours, but we had the PERFECT Nov. day so we kept the car for 4 hours at a nominal add'l fee. The only drawback, if sound bothers you, and not sure if this was just our car or all, when throttle (basically built on motorcycle) at full speed (most of the time) the sound is VERY loud...almost like a car without a muffler. You get used to it..but the pedestrians (like in Sea Cliff where it is quiet) don't! But they all still smile and wave. Check to see if all cars loud or not. But take this tour...you will LOVE it! We are planning to go again.

Go Cars

 We have an absolutely FANTASTIC time today! I surprised my husband on our anniversary with this awesome gift. My husband is from the Bay Area and he saw lots of site that he'd never seen before. The cars go about 30 mph and is fitted with a talking GPS system that also serves as your tour guide. We did veer off the wrong way (due to construction issues) but the map we were given got us back on track. I paid for 2 1/2 hours and didn't realized that we were gone for 3 1/2 hours we paid an extra $28.00 for that. The car doesn't go in reverse, so you'll have to push it. And be careful of going up some hills. The GoCar can't go up all of them, but if you stick with the GPS tour, you'll be fine.

GoCars are fun

 We had a great time. The GoCars are a blast and we learned a lot about San Francisco. Saw things we never knew were there.

Question: Can a toddler join in on this or is there no back seat for a car seat?

Answer: There is no legal age requirement for passengers. They should be able to sit upright, wear a helmet that is provided (small size) and also wear the lapbelt. Children aged 3-4 years is about right.

Question: Can we take the GoCar over the Golden Gate Bridge?

Answer: No. California classifies the GoCar the same way they do a scooter. You cannot drive on any freeways or roads where the speed limit is over 45 miles per hour.

Question: How many people fit in a GoCar?

Answer: 2 people.

Question: I'm traveling to the US this summer and would like to book the GoCar adventure. Will they let me drive with a foreign driver's license?

Answer: You can drive a GoCAR in California with any foreign driver’s license.

Question: I thought the GoCar adventure would be a great gift for my sister and her friend. Do they need to know how to drive a stick shift?

Answer: No, All GoCars have automatic transmissions.
