"SO MUCH FUN -- and you are driving on the street!"

Have you ever wanted to drive down the crookedest street in the world? This adventure is for you! I'd recommend going first thing in the AM -- ideally on a weekday. That way you avoid most of the traffic and get to maximize your time. The car will tell you where to go -- so no need to worry about navigation. You can stop and explore as much as you want -- so good idea to book a good chunk of time. Arguably the best way to see the city. I'd do this again in a heartbeat, just for the pure fun of it!

"Fun but watch out!"

This experience was fun but a bit stressful. We wanted to see the painted ladies so decided to go off route. This is perfectly acceptable with the tour so we didnt think much of it however trying to navigate back was a nightmare! Thr maps provided dont tell you if a street is one way so we totally got lost in downtown, which us actually quite scary! This is a fun experience but I suggest sticking to the route and the quieter areas. Driving round Presidio for instance would be lovely

we hired 2 cars before we arrived in San Fran and went for the 9am 3 hours for the price of 2.. We got there around 8.40 which meant we had time to fill out the waiver, watch the video, get helmets that fit and understand how to operate the car to actually start driving at 9am. I had my daughter (12) in the car and my husband had my son aged 10. I thought i would be nervous but we specifically chose Sunday morning thinking that would be better for traffic - i 'think' we made a good call as there was hardly any traffic. We did the route that took us to the parks - we had been to fishermans wharf etc the night before. It was a lovely sunny day but a bit chilly - was glad of a fleece and sunglasses. The GPS system told us exactly where to go. We did a mini detour to see a House from a tv show my daughter had loved when she was younger but GPS picked us up. Highly recommended!

Did the 2 hour tour starting at the wharf and had a blast. My only recommendation would be to arrive 30 minutes early rather than 15. They were understaffed and busy & even though we had a reservation we lost 30 minutes of our tour. We had dinner reservations. Lots of fun, get out and take pictures and enjoy the ride. Can’t wait to tour the city next time.

This is a MUST DO if you want a laugh. My wife and I headed off out on the GoCar yesterday and we had a fantastic afternoon. We are always up for a laugh and having a wee adventure and this ticks all the boxes. Don’t ‘think’ about doing this, just go for it and do the 2/3 hour tour as the time passes way to quickly. Go on, you know you want to 😉
