Pick up your GoCar at one of two convenient locations: at Union Square or on Beach Street near Fisherman's Wharf. Up to 2 people can fit in this roofless, 3-wheeled car that reaches speeds of 35 miles per hour. This is a unique way to explore the City by the Bay, and GoCars aren't available in any other place in the nation. 

Strap on your helmet, climb into the tiny car, and take off on your city adventure. Listen for directions that are clear and informative, telling you where to go and commentary about the historical and cultural significance of your destinations. Follow the designated route or make up your own tour based on your interests like film, art or nature. Explore the city at your own pace, stopping to spend more time at places that interest you. Landmarks on the preloaded tour include over 50 points of interest like Ocean Beach, Golden Gate Park, Fort Point, Crissy Field, Lombard Street and the Palace of Fine Arts.

    Do you have to stay on the tour?
    Absolutely not! If there is a San Francisco sight you wish to see but is not yet included on the tour, just use the map provided to navigate your own way through the city streets. You can even put a CD in the stereo and enjoy music along the way!
    Are controlled with a motorcycle-style handle, throttle, and hand brakes. The 3-wheeled cars seat two and have a lockable trunk for your things. Their small size makes parking a breeze, and in San Francisco - a major bonus!
    How fast does the car go?
    Up to 35-mph. Note that drivers in San Francisco do not typically drive fast, therefore an average speed of 30-mph or less can be expected while driving.
    Can you cross the Golden Gate Bridge?
    No, but the tour will navigate you to Fort Point. Here the bridge soars about 200-feet above your head. It is possible to gain pedestrian access to the bridge span from the car park at the bridge vantage point.
    What is a CDW?
    Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is an optional form of insurance similar to rental car insurance that limits your liability in case of accident. It is non-refundable. If you opt to purchase the CDW your deposit for rented a GoCar is only USD$150.00 instead of USD$400.00

    For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.

    We were so excited and looking forward to this . Unfortunately it was a very disappointing and frustrating experience. Do to the fact that Stockton street was closed, and we had to keep going straight ahead and not as the GPS was indicating, it stop giving any sort of direction. Since we were not familiar with the streets, we were unable to get out of the city and were stuck in traffic the whole time. The frustration and tension was such that we ended up returning the GoCar way before our two hours were over. We left very disappointed.

    Fun thing to do. There is no special lane for these cars so you need to be really careful in traffic. Staff at the Union Square location not at all helpful when we tried to tell them about a few issues...gps that stopped working etc. Get the higher insurance..I think it was 25.

    This tour is a lot of fun. We had 2 cars in our group. One car had a side view mirror that would not stay in the correct position. Every time you hit a bump it would move. The second car had a gps that had a mind of its own and stopped working so they had to follow the other car. When we tried to tell the staff of the few issues we experienced it fell on deaf ears. They could care less. We picked the cars up from the Union Square location.

    This was the best tour we've ever done. It was so unique in it's approach to seeing San Francisco and driving throughout the whole city was terrific! The GPS guide system needs to be refined, but this was such a great idea it's hard not to smile the whole trip.

    Make sure you have an extra layer of clothing. It gets cold. Otherwise, a great way to see the city.
