Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

It’s not every day that you have a convertible yellow talking car at your disposal. As you drive, the GoCar 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

GPS-guided Talking Tour Cars San Diego

Venture into parts of San Diego that tour buses cannot go! Your self-drive tour by GoCar can take anywhere from one hour to a full day, depending on which option you select on booking. Explore San Diego sights on your own schedule — just pick up a GoCar, see what you want and bring the vehicle back when your time is up.

Each 3-wheeled car seats two and has a lockable trunk for your belongings. The small size makes parking a breeze, and in San Diego that's a major bonus. You can even squeeze the tiny vehicle into motorcycle parking. No experience is necessary, and you will receive helmets and a briefing on how to operate the car before you head out.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2013

It was a lot more than I expected. Would recommend to everyone

4 star rating: Recommended August 2012

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.
