5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

Great experience. We had a blast. There were only a couple of issues. I weigh 180 and my companion 165. In the hillier areas, this can cause issues with the engine size of the car. At one point we were only able to move about 2mph and at another point my passenger had to help push for about 10ft to clear the top of a hill. It wasn't that big of a deal and we had a great adventure. Just wanted to mention the one little caveat.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2013

What a great way to see Barcelona!! I tried the GoCar last week with my brother-in-law. We had booked and paid for an hour, but had so much fun that we chose to stay out for the full day. Driving in Barcelona traffic was much easier than I had expected and the GPS instructions were great, informative and fun. People on the streets were waving to us and taking photos of us in our little funky yellow car :). We stayed and visited several sights like the FC Barcelona soccer stadium and Park Guell (don't miss!). This must be the coolest way to see Barcelona, so much more fun than a traditional tourist bus.
