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.
We had a great time using the gocar! Perfect way to see a lot of the city hilights with ease and it was very informative!
Best fun ever! It's a bit cringey and everyone looks at you but such a laugh! We got stuck on a hill which was mega embrassing but fantastic if you fancy a giggle! We did the 2 hour tour which was enough but I'd recommend hiring the bigger engine car as was awfully slow on some hills. Brilliant fun!
Was a bit worried after reading some of the reviews about the malfunctioning equipment but decided to try it anyway. Not one problem with the GPS or the vehicle. A little difficult listening to the GPS and the narrative since it only tells you one time if you get off track, but the map was helpful. Ultimately, it was SO much fun!! We could not stop laughing and smiling for the entire 2 hrs!
This was a great way to see the city. You can take the guided tour or take a detour, It was so much fun!

It was a great experience. The GPS on the first car didn't work, so we were given another car and we were on our way. Saw a lot of San Francisco that I have never seen before and learned a lot of the history, and riding in the Go Car was a blast. Would highly recommend !!!!
We loved this excursion! The cars were easy to drive. The drivers in cars were respectful. The GPS tour guide was full of great information. The kids were totally entertained and learned a lot about San Francisco!
Awesome!! Had a blast! The GPS tour was the best tour I have ever taken !
This tour was so much fun that we went back and booked it again for the following day. We drove everywhere including city traffic and parks. It was almost like riding a motorcycle with a sidecar. The GPS system was terrific. We never got lost. It kept us from going on roads that were too steep and it even had a sense of humor. I highly recommend this tour.
We had a great time and it was a lot of fun. The only issue I had was on the day I went to pick up the Go Car they didn't have down that I had reserved one. I had called ahead and verified also. I ended up spending 45 minutes before they got it straightened out.
We rented 2 GoCars for some friends that came into town. It was actually a lot of fun and despite some of the negative reviews about breaking down, thank goodness we didn't. I was also concerned with how big the GoCar was. One of the guys is a tall 6'3 but he fit perfectly. Any taller may have been uncomfortable. Parking was still a pain but probably could fit 3 in one space, tightly. The parking garage charged us motorcycle rate which was nice, but you may want to mention it. We zipped all over San Fran and we loved the GPS/tour guide. Some good information historically. The GoCar was easy to get adjusted. I can't even tell you how many pictures were taking pictures of us, we made sure to pose. haha! It was a lot of fun. We rented for 3 hours and it was perfect. We also rented on a Monday and thought traffic would be less which it probably was but not from the Ferry Building down to the Wharf...if you can avoid it, I would. It's a lot of bus exhaust. Overall, it was an awesome adventure and very happy we did. I also suggest upgrading to the higher power cars. Climbing those San Fran hills...the extra $15 was totally worth it!
I was able to go everywhere I wanted to go and then some. I rented the car for 8 hours and went all over town, literally. I burned $0.79 (cents) in gas and used $2.00 in parking fees. The open design of the car allowed my son and I to view everything. That is hard to do in a conventional car. We were also able to go places tour buses were not allowed. The verbal tour was very helpful also, we learned a lot about San Francisco.
Totally worth it!!!!!! My mom and I took one of these bad boys out for three hours and absolutely had a blast. While our GPS navigator stopped working about 30 minutes (total fluke) into our tour, we had enjoy the scenic views and navigating the city using the map provided in the car. We made the most of the situation and laughed for three hours straight. Our highlight was realizing we had to drive down Lombard St... Laughed our butts off. You cover pretty much the entire city!! We highly recommended to everyone we met.
FYI: These things don't reverse, so you might find yourself doing a little Austin Powers 3pt turn arounds... with a push. Hil.a.rious. ps. You'll feel like a celebrity - everyone takes pictures of you in these things.
Best thing ever, a shame we only booked it for 1 hour, could happily done full 2.5 hours. Great tour and a lot of fun
