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.

What a lot of fun! A little scary driving in major traffic and the gps voice was not in sync with where you were at. But many laughs.

We did not really enjoy this experience. The car feels very vulnerable, was very bumpy and the fumes made both of us feel sick. We did the 9:00 a.m. one hour tour so there was very little traffic which helped but neither of us would do it again.

The Go-car orientation is way too brief and simple. The GPS is misleading and one can too easily end up taking the wrong routes as they are only indicated as 'options'. I would recommend the GPS to be set on only one of the 3 possible route options to prevent further confusion. One also has no idea how much time you can spend where to stay within your paid time limit. I recommend a route that is not only in map format but also listed destinations with time frames in order to plan your journey better. In the end this was a very stressful experience as one really drive in the city centre traffic.
