My husband and I loved the tour. This is a great way to see the entire city at your own pace. I would definitely recommend getting the car the whole day. For those worried about safety, we had no issues. For the most part you can stay out of people's way and I loved the commentary with the GPS to learn about the city.

You will need the 3 hour tour to see everything and their is time to stop and take pictures. If it is a windy day dress warm! I would do this in every city that has the Go Car!!!!!!

It was fantastic. I loved the fact you did not have to stay on the GPS tour course. We made some side trips as we saw something interesting or had already seen something on the tour. One of the best parts was all of the waving between GoCar's and from people both walking and driving. We were even asked to be in other people's pictures. Glad we booked for 3 hours. One or even two hours would not have been enough time.

This was the best tour we did while we were in San Francisco. It was a lot of fun riding around in this little car and going to see the sites. Cyp was also a delight to work with.

Make sure your GPS is working before you leave. Once we had the hang of it and were comfortable, this GoCar is the BEST thing we did during our 5 day stay in SFO. We have 2 kids; 17 and 14 and they said it was the best tour they have ever had over all the year's of vacations. I thought 3 hours would be too long but we could have done it for 8 hours and never been tired of it. Everyone was taking pictures of us and the Northern Beach Tour or Red line was GREAT.
