GoCars are easy and fun to drive. They're guided by GPS (Global Positioning System) - which means that the car always knows where you are, even if you don't. As you drive, it tells you where to turn and what you're passing, and it waits patiently if you want to stop. As soon as you turn your GoCar back on, the tour picks up where it left off.
What You Can Expect
Your tour can take anywhere from one hour to a full day. That's the best thing about it... you're on your own schedule, not a tour bus operator's. Just take a car, see what you want and bring it back when you're done. If you find that you're having the time of your life, keep going! After all, it's not often you've got a convertible yellow talking car at your disposal.
The 3-wheeled cars seat two and have a lockable trunk for your things. Their small size makes parking a breeze, and in San Diego, that's a major bonus. They can even be parked in motorcycle parking.
Price is per person, based on 2 passengers per car.
It was a lot more than I expected. Would recommend to everyone
It was great for the most part. There was a delay with the availability of our car, and I felt that since I asked to rent the car for 2 hours, I shouldn't have been given a 3-hour choice as one of the programmed tours-- I ended up taking the latter, not realizing that 1) it would take 3 hours and that I'd be charged accordingly. I do feel that some of the dangers inherent with driving on busy streets w/ SUVs is somewhat under-emphasized.
