Fantastic way to see the city and great fun too! Everyone seems to be looking at you with envy wishing they'd seen them and booked them. Motorists were very courteous which was re-assuring given the size difference between this and the other vehicles. As for Alcatraz, the audio tour is a must and quite an impressive place. must see!
Loved this trip! The go car was so much fun...would highly reccomend to anyone!
This tour was great. We spent the morning at Alcatraz and the afternoon being guided around San Francisco in the Go Car. Great fun driving down Lombard Street! This tour was an excellent way to explore the City.
An excellent way to see the city, and the tour to alcatraz was great too.
The Go Cars were so much fun and Alkatraz was really interesting. Easy to organise on the day.
LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!! We got the only RED go-car on the lot! Easy to drive, the GPS guided tour was great! So much fun driving down lombard street - really had a great time! I highly recommend this tour!
Mid week no line ups. If you call ahead to confirm you can get in right away. Fun ride. Wouldn't pick up down town. Warf is easier driving. Wish we would have stopped more.
Better than a bus tour.
Everyone who has a driving licence should do this! This activity is so well organised,from the friendly,helpful staff to the superb GPS directions in the car. You really can't go wrong, also it's good value.
This is a great tour to do and the gocar organisation is very accommodating they changed our booking to the next day so fit with the alcatraz ferry. I would highly recommend this tour.
Alcatraz was really interesting, a volunteer tour guide took us up to the prison, telling us all the history of the island and the part it played in the civil war pre federal prison. I highly recommend doing this if you get the opportunity. Unfortunately, we never made it to the GoCar tour but it looks like alot of fun.
Go Cars tour is really good, but there should be more access to the GPS. It guide us over San Francisco, but sometime it is difficult to hear due to outside noise, and GPS is not accessible to repeat instructions. Alcatraz Tour is excellent all the way.
Good fun. Wished we could have have taken the 3 hour tour. Would do it again
Was very good and the go cars were alot of fun. Would reccomend to do, GPS was very clear and easy to follow. Alcatraz was amazing.
So easy to pick up tickets and schedule tours. Did the Go Car in the morning, I would recommend asking for a newer, faster model. Unfortunately we got an old one, and after 3 hours (we wanted to see more so we stayed an extra hour) my hands were cramping up from the handles (its like a motorcycle). My boyfriend had to get out of the car while going up hill to see Lombard street because it couldn't handle all the weight. Plan on switching drivers if you can, we couldnt because these things are not made for tall people and he is 6'6". These cars are so fun, allowing you to see San Francisco at your leisure and offering you options through the self-guided gps.She gives you a nice history and descritption of things you are passing by or visiting, however try to stay on the path or you will lose her and it takes forever for her to pick up the signal again. Alcatraz was breathtaking and wonderful! You need about 2 horus on the island to really appreciate it, so plan accordingly. Great deal!
This was so much fun! We had a blast driving all over San Fran andthe Gps guide was really helpful and informative. Would definately do it again!
Loved the little yellow car...we stopped a lot to get our bearings and follow the map....our talking GPS stopped working and eventually gave up trying to restart ...I amnot sure that we ever got back on the same route. Lombard Street was the highlight.
Govt shut down didn't allow us to do most of this booking, viator is issuing a refund
The GoCar is a great way to get around the city quickly and see a lot. Get to the GoCar pickup as early as possible (9 am). That way you can keep the GoCar for 3 hours and still catch the fairy to Alcatraz. Alcatraz is a must see for anyone visiting San Francisco. This tour is a good combination of activities and still leaves a good part of the day to do something else!
We loved the tour. It was a blast but we did have two problems. While we were on the GPS guided tour it directed us into a detour and we had to redirect ourselves to get back on course. The second problem, we hit a bump and lost our transmission of the guided tour in one of our cars. Luckily, we had two cars.
The Go Cars were lots of fun and a great way to see the city! Lots of opportunities for pictures. Never felt unsafe. GPS gave great directions and info about the city. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the staff at the GoCar office were not very nice or professional. Alcatraz was fun!
