Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This combo package includes admission to immensely popular Alcatraz and a two-hour sightseeing session in a nifty little GoCar. This is a smart and quirky option for time-strapped visitors who want to both see San Francisco's top attraction and explore the city on a sightseeing trip of their own.
Make your own way to Fisherman's Wharf, then board the ferry and ride across San Francisco Bay to Alcatraz Island for a 45-minute self-guided audio tour of the former prison grounds. There is no restriction on the amount of time you spend on the island; simply re-board the ferry whenever you wish to return to Fisherman's Wharf (departs every 30 minutes).

Once back on mainland, re-energize with a wonderful lunch made by Get Fresh SF including a sandwich, wrap or Asian bowl of your choice, chips, fresh fruit – and a drink or fresh fruit smoothie.

After lunch, let GoCar take you off the beaten path through many of San Francisco’s iconic parks like the Presidio and Crissy Field on the way to the Golden Gate Bridge and back. Snap some amazing photos along the Pacific Ocean and see the Golden Gate Bridge up close from above and below. You can even park and take a stroll along the span of the bridge if you choose. On the way back explore the boutique shopping districts of Chestnut and Union Street and fill the trunk with the latest fashions or stop for a bite to eat. Finish your tour where tour buses can’t go by winding your way up Russian Hill to take an exhilarating ride down the world’s most crooked street, Lombard Street.

The GoCar tour is approximately two hours drive time at a slow pace and has several fun, informative detours and stop options along the way. If you want to extend the tour you have the option of taking the Downtown/Chinatown loop at the end of the tour

You will love this self guided tour. Just watch your time because they charge you by the minute for everything over your allotted time which was not explained up front. The tour encourages you to take detours and stop to take in the sights. Just be careful about your time. It adds up fast.

Great adventure. Got to see the city! Too tight for 2 adults, you might want to get your own car!

Package was fantastic. Great way to experience the city. Only issue we had was not enough time to see everything.

Utterly hillarious.
The gps cut out quite a bit which added to the humour of the tour - although we got totally lost.
This was so much fun, it was well worth the humiliation of being those two in the yellow buggy
You see some fantastic sights and get to stop off at many photo points. Definitely worth a go!!

This was the highlight of our visit to San Francisco. My husband and I are 67 years old and had the time of our lives. You can't get lost as long as you listen to the gps operator. We got to see quite a lot of the city and were able to stop and take photos. I'd do this again anytime!

This was a great adventure. Even though the day was windy and chilly it was still a wonderful tour. Alcatraz was a sobering experience but well worth the time. The audio definitely enhanced the tour. The Guided GoCars was also a great trip. Easy route with light traffic. Lots to see and do in San Francisco. The GoCar was a nice way to get around and see everything. We enjoyed both tours.

I absolutely loved the Alcatraz portion of this trip. Great sights and the first portion of this trip went off without a hitch.
Once we got to the second part of the day we were greeted and were told to watch a safety video before we jumped in the Go Car to drive around the city. We felt very rushed out of the main location and quickly realized about 10 minutes later that our GPS was not turned on. We were stuck in a lot of traffic and so by the time we returned back to the main location and swapped out vehicles, it had already been 30 minutes. Our GPS had never been turned on and they didn't even completely fill the tank. On our second attempt out, our GPS worked perfectly and we were having a great time until our exhaust blew out going up a hill, halfway through our adventure. Upon calling the company we were told we needed to get an Uber on our own dime and leave the Go Car on the side of the road. This was very inconvenient and we were pretty upset. Upon returning via Uber to to the location, we did not receive any apologies and although they refunded our Uber and charge for the Go Car for the day which we appreciated, we left feeling very let down by the experience. I would highly recommend using a different option to see the city. This company was a real let down and a waste of time.
