Take a GPS-guided tour in the Storytelling Car® and see for yourself why TIME Magazine called GoCar "The Most Amazing Invention of the Year!" Let GoCar be your guide through an exciting loop of San Francisco's Chinatown and Downtown. GoCar, The Cure for the Common Tour®, lets you experience the beauty of San Francisco and visit places tour busses cannot go – all at your own pace! Fold up your map, put away the guidebook and let the GoCar show you what most visitors never see! Zip around in a cute, yellow Storytelling GoCar as it takes you on your own GPS-guided tour. The GoCar is easy and fun to drive. Since it is GPS-guided, the car knows where you are – even if you don’t. With you in the driver’s seat, it not only tells you where to turn, it tells the stories that bring the city to life. Let the car direct you, or for those more adventurous, blaze your own trail! Your tour’s length may vary due to circumstances such as departure time and location, traffic and your itinerary. If you do take additional rental time, this will be billed in 15-minute increments at our retail rates. You may visit all or some of the tour’s highlights.

    The cars were awesome. Excellent way to see the city highlights. Only issue was with the direction from the staff. I booked the downtown tour, mind you this is my first time visiting so I'm not familiar with the area. My car took me on the park tour, I called the office when I realized I was on wrong tour. When I got back to office, they tried to charge me more for going over the hour. I explained that the car took me on the wrong tour, the guy said I should have told them which tour I booked??!! Umm, don't you have record of that, and shouldn't you confirm the correct tour is set up before people head out?? Regardless the cars/motorcycle themselves are awesome.

    Was really smart to do the early bird route at 9am. I should've gotten there by 845 to start the route at exactly 9am because it's definitely more than 3 hours to do the whole route. They charge $19 for every 15 minutes over or $63 for each hour over the reservation. The directions on the buggy were either hard to hear or hard to navigate because I'd miss turns and end up using my own phone's GPS to get back to the store. Would totally recommend overall and learned a lot about San Francisco from the ride.

    One of the cars didn’t have gps or the sound was not working. We got lost and came back to the location late. It was hard to turn around without the reverse. It took some time to check in so plan a long buffer if you have other tours planned. We ended up missing our next appointment. Great idea when it works. Would be nice if it had better gps with better screen to follow. Also-buying tickets through this site said it was per 6 people, but it wasn’t. It is per CAR. Pricing wasn’t outrageous, so i was ok paying for a second car. Would have been better if the second car had working gps.
