With over 200 points of interest you can you make the tour as long or short as you want. Best of all, the adventure happens at your pace.

Your GoCar comes pre-loaded with more than 500 different attractions and points of interest throughout San Francisco. Of course, you can check out some of the most popular tourist San Francisco attractions in the world, including Alcatraz, Pier 39, and Golden Gate Park, but you can also visit some of the under-the-radar spots that only locals know about like Stow Lake and Pilots Row.

An amazing and fun way to see the city! Good thing is that you don’t have to stick to the navigation route; it’s perfectly fine to take a detour which is easy as they provide you with a map - or if you upgrade to a gocar with a screen it’s even easier (we did not). Driving the gocar is easy enough and safe. Drivers here seem to go slow and take their time and grant you way all the time so it’s easy to drive around. You will easily get noticed! People look, wave and take pictures of you whilst driving around so if you want to know how it feels like being a celebrity; then hire one of these!!! Wow I felt so important and famous! 😎 The staff there are brilliant too, no hard up sell for better insurance or longer hire time. Just note that if your late they charge you $1 per minute! Not nice at all, but the staff told me it’s a British owner, so as a Brit myself I couldn’t really moan now could I?!!! Betel checked us in nice and quick, and Scott got us saddled up and ready to go. Hayden is a new intern there and was just as nice as the other two. Not the most cheapest, but definitely a fun way to navigate the city especially if your bored or have done those bus tours - go have fun - gocar! 🚘

We booked this as part of a package with Alcatraz and lunch. This GoCar deal was such good value and we had an hour in the GoCar, which was so much fun zipping around San Francisco. I have to thank GoCar as I was really unwell on the day I was suppose to take out the car, very last minute and they were kind enough to offer me to do at anytime during my stay which was so nice of them. I would highly recommend this little gem!

We tried go car this December after being recommended by a friend. We met Forest in the union square depot and he was really friendly and reassuring about going around the city. He gave us great advice for where to go and what to do. Would highly recommend seeing Forest before you set off! A really fun way to see the city and learn some fun facts in a different way to the usual bus tours.

Great way to explore the city; and it's a lot of fun as well. Forrest, A.B. and Marina gave us a perfect introduction on how everything works. The GPS guide on the cars worked perfectly. We had a great time.
