The Go Car tour was fun and the arrangments were easy to book. really need to have two people to pay attention to directions and road signs along the way to stay on the tour route. The streets are busy and road markings are few. GPS screen is hard to see in bright sun. It was a good way to see alot in a short period of time but will need to go back and do a walking tour of the sights we Go Car toured

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.

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.

Really enjoyed this. We had originally reserved our car for the day we got to Barcelona, but it was raining and they were very accommodating to change the dates for us. It is very difficult to brake this vehicle, but the experience was fun. The GPS is not quite like the US where it gives you time to make the turn and warns you, these turns come up fast and if you are in the wrong lane.. good luck. They are also pretty loud.. like a riding lawn mower, but that still wasn't too bad. If they were electric it would be better as you could really listen to the talking GPS without having to turn it up and down in the streets and at stop lights. Got to see a lot of things around Barcelona that we will go back and check out on our next trip. We had the 3 hour tour but there is NO time to stop if you want to get this back on time. Plan on paying more if you plan to stop at any sites. Plan at least 5-6 hours for 3 hour tour. Recommended, but you need to be not weary about driving in Barcelona. There is no such thing as a left turn.. all round abouts.. very different roads.

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.

Nice experience

GPS was confusing, kept returning us to the same places if we didn't turn where it said we should have. Very confusing is you don't know the city. Whoever drives the car MUST know the city and the route before driving, otherwise will end up like us- seeing the same attractions
