Awesome experience! Everyone loved the beetle! Make sure you're a confident driver as they aren't the easiest cars to drive! If you wanna do something different - this is it! (Make sure you phone to arrange a pick up time as the owner isnt always on location)

We rented he VW convertible for 5 hours and drove over the Golden Gate bridge to Sausalito and back. We also visited a few sites in San Francisco. The day was perfect and we had a wonderful time. The VW was completely restored and ran like a top. We attracted a lot of attention driving the antique. The gentlyman who rented us the car was most helpful. He provided a GPS with all the popular sites in San Francisco so getting around was easy. He also provided a video camera that mounted on the outside of the windshield and was capable of recording up to 4 hours of video. At the end of the rental he gave us the memory card from the camera to take with us.
If we return to San Francisco, we would definitely consider renting the bug again.
