Don’t forget your driving license
Zainab_D, Mar 2023
The 4 stars instead of 5 is only because it was not clearly mentioned that we need our driving license (or was it?) Anyway as I did not read it, they were kind enough to let me exchange to another experience. I chose the TukTuk and it was very nice 👍🏻
A Memorable Experience.
David_M, Oct 2022
First class, welcoming and totally professional staff, particularly Mariana. Demonstration was good and off we went. Whilst the GoCar was safe and everything worked to a high standard, unfortunately the noise from the engine overwhelmed the voice from the preloaded satnav. This resulted in my wife having to study the satnav screen throughout the journey and loudly shout all the many direction instructions. To the uninitiated driver, Lisbon is a complex city with many narrow roads and one-way streets. This makes the satnav so important. We became lost, though ultimately, with the help of a passing Lisbon resident, we were able to find our way back to the GoCar site … some 40 minutes late. Mariana was most helpful and did not charge for the extra time. Next time I will choose the fully electric vehicle. Thank you GoCar and Mariana for a great and memorable experience.

GOCar trip
Niloofer_R, Oct 2022
We took the GoCar for 2 hours but decided to give up in an hour. Though they are cute but they make so much of noise that you can't hear anything what it was explaing about the points. The navigation system not very clear. For 15 min we went round and round as they had closed one road and the navigation could not reach us to back to the station. Lisbon streets are not meant as the car rattles a lot. Had done this in San Francisco and was good fun so booked in Lisbon.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Dear sir, Unfortunately we had 3 days with several roads closed to traffic due to constructions and we realise that if tried to go those streets, the experience wouldn't be the best. GPS issues have been reported and we are just finalizing an upgraded version of the navigation system that it's going to solve all this issues. On top of it, it's going to add gamification to the tour. It will be launch still this year of 2022. Hope to see you back soon and we'll give you a free tour with this new navigation system.
A 3-wheeled nightmare
Robert_E, Sept 2022
We opted to take the GoCar trip to Belem and it was a huge mistake. These cars were just terrible. The one we had was so so loud. We couldn’t hear the tour information coming from the speaker due to the noisy engine. The actual driving experience was a nightmare. In order to get the GoCar moving, the throttle needed to be at 75 percent. Any less throttle just produced noise. The GPS on the front screen took us along a busy main road and in order to drive with the normal speed of the other traffic we had to go 100% throttle. Even with a lot of experience driving motorcycles, the GoCar felt risky at this speed and easily swerved when a wheel hit pot holes. If this were like the electric green 4-wheeled vehicles we had seen, I expect that the whole experience would have been x10 better. With the yellow 3-wheeled monstrosities I cannot at all recommend them to any one.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Hi Robert, We are very sorry for the bad experience you had. After your review, we checked the car you took and there were some mechanical issues. Whenever this happens, obviously we fully compensate our customers. Very soon, still in 2022, we'll update both vehicles for a more reliable and comfort electric ones, and also the navigation system is going to be a improved one. Kind regards,
Really good fun
Lee_S, May 2022
Great fun would highly recommend. The 'green' route is a good way to see all the best bits of lisbon and have a good laugh while doing it. The lady who helped us get set up, Flavia, could not have been more helpful
This is a must do
Laura_B, May 2022
Amazing way to see and experience Lisbon. I would highly recommend doing this and will defo do it again. David was great in setting us up and explaining what to do. Can’t wait to visit and use go car again.
Fun scooter
Kimberly_C, May 2022
This was so much fun! We drove all over Lisbon and stopped at each stop to take photos. It was a great experience, I wish every town I traveled to had this option.
Epic experience in Lisbon
Mircea_T, May 2022
Had a great experience for a couple of hours in Lisbon. I would definitely do it again for more hours next time. The staff was really kind and made us a proper induction about how to use the GoCart and about the paperwork or where to park it if needed, explained about the GPS and the routes that we could opt for. I really recommend this experience when you visit Lisbon, it’s a must do in my opinion. Loved it! Thank you guys. Hope to see you soon.
Great Company(Boost) but Go Cars not for the faint hearted.
gcoltman, Apr 2022
People at Boost were fantastic and they offer a wide range of activities in Lisbon. Unfortunately the steering on our Go Car was very bad, making the vehicle very unstable. We chose to go along the river to the historic town of Belem and it was a great trip but not for the faint hearted as you go along some very fast roads and our vehicle fishtailed badly if we went above 15 kilometres an hour. The other road users were incredibly good natured and gave us a wide berth. Glad we took the trip, but never again. We will however be going back to Boost to try out some of their other activities. Staff were all amazing.

Great way to explore Lisboa!
Renee_d, Apr 2022
Our guide Aderito first told us everything we needed to know about the GoCar, then we were off to explore Lisboa! Because we had a full day, we first took the Belem route. We made several stops on the way which was very nice. We did get a lot of attention driving the GoCar, so be prepared! On our way back to the city we stopped at LX Factory which is a really cool place to visit! After the Belem route we also did parts of the other routes. The very steep roads were a bit scary, but we had a really great day!

quite dangerous
Andreea_M, Apr 2022
Quite dangerous, difficult to handle, bad roads, congestion. Easy to use application and good chosen route
Super fun way to experience Lisbon!
Stacy_U, Apr 2022
The GoCar was super fun and easy to use! Jessica set us up for an amazing 3hr drive where we saw Belem and old town. Well worth it considering it’s a part of town transit doesn’t quite connect to and we didn’t rent a car. Would do this again in a heartbeat!!
Driving the car gave us an activity.....but.
TraceyM, Apr 2022
We were given a car that had a lot of damage. Broken windshield, broken seatbelt, and some body damage. It ran so loud that we could not hear one word of the navigation so it was useless. We saw things but had no idea what we were looking at. Worst part was that cars were motioning us because our car was so loud.
Great Experience
V_C, Apr 2022
Fun and a great way to see the sights at your own pace. We drove both (gas and electric) and the electric was a more pleasant experience...just be careful on those hills :)
Great fun
Charlotte_H, Mar 2022

Great Way to See the City, Great Staff
Tania_B, Feb 2022
Such a fun experience! We wanted to be able to see parts of the city that we hadn’t seen before, and this was a unique way to do it on our time. We opted on the full day package, and spent most of our time in Belem. We parked the Go Car and explored the areas. We ended with going through the historical and city tour—and even though we had explored so much prior to our car rental, we learned that we still had so much to see and are so happy we did a full day. Worth the money for sure!! Hats off to the incredible staff—they were awesome and answered so many questions. They even gave us the best food recommendations. I cannot speak highly enough about the team at Boost Lisbon/Go Car!! Go see Jose and the team today!!!
Fab and fun
Jackie_C, Feb 2022
Fantastic and fun thank you madalena who looked after us Great way to see the city And get lost and find unknown places
We had the best fun!...
Ciara_G, Feb 2022
We had the best fun! Laughed the entire time and got to see so much of the city! Took the 3 hour package but probably needed more time!
The gps doesn’t work
Tafadzwa_N, Sept 2021
The gps doesn’t work at all making it so hard to locate your way around the city. The car is scary to drive and you might face difficulties parking it as well.
