  • San Diego GoCar Tour: Early Bird Special

    3. San Diego GoCar Tour: Early Bird Special

    Enjoy a tour driving a GoCar, that will take you off the beaten path through many of San Diego’s iconic parks like the Balboa Park and Petco Park on the way to Hillcrest and back.   Snap some amazing photos along the Pacific Ocean and see San Diego up close. You can even park and take a stroll if you choose. On the way back explore the boutique shopping districts of Hillcrest. This tour is approximately two hours of driving 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 Oldtown loop at the end of the tour.

    The value was great and we really enjoyed zooming through the city in our GoCar. We learned so much about the history of San Diego and made plenty of stops to take pictures and see the sights. The only thing we weren't too happy with is that the address in the booking details, led us to a parking garage and was inaccurate. We called the location and the instructor was very apologetic and helped us find the right location. He was nice enough to give us a little extra time because of the mishap.

I booked this for my birthday weekend. This is the first time doing the go cart. We enjoyed the experience very much. We got lost and it was somewhat stressful however fun. We got back a few minutes late and we were not charged, the propriaters were amazing and did not charge us extra fines. A great experience. I will definately participate in this experience.

It's a "must do" while visiting San Diego. 1hr is not enough, definitely recommend atleast 2 hours. So much to see, so little time. Excitingly Adventurous and entertainingly educational even for my 12 yrs old. GYG staff was very helpful during chat assistance. Staff at GO CARS are awesome!!!

Such a fun and unforgettable experience, the owners made it even more amazing making it such an easy and enjoyable adventure for us!!! Highly recommend
