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.

This was really fun and at the same time terrifying. Get ready to have your photo taken dozens of times, be challenged to race, and just generally be stared at. Don't do it alone as there is a lot to think about with all the hand controls. Found myself frequently in the wrong lane and risking my life to get to the correct one. All in all it was really fun though. It took quite a bit to get used to the car so you tend to miss a lot of the sights along the way. Took the one hour rental but probably should have taken a 2 hour drive so I could make a few photo stops. You might want to bring a pillow because I think shocks were non-existant.
