Full description

Zip around in a GPS-guided, talking GoCar, which will be your guide on an exciting loop of San Francisco's breathtaking Golden Gate Bridge and Lombard Street. GoCar allows you to experience the beauty of San Francisco and visit places tour buses cannot go – all at your own pace. Go off the beaten path through San Francisco's iconic parks on your way to the Golden Gate Bridge and back. Snap amazing photos along the Pacific Ocean and see the Golden Gate Bridge up close from above and below. You can even park and take a stroll along the span of the bridge if you choose.

On the way back, explore the boutique shopping districts of Chestnut and Union Street, then fill the trunk with the latest fashions, or stop for a bite to eat. Finish your tour by winding your way up Russian Hill to take an exhilarating ride down notoriously crooked Lombard Street.

It is a unique experience to drive and have a guide to listen to not only the audio guide gives directions but also lots of information about the city. I recommend this activity to see the city from another angle! Obese person abstain because you will not be comfortable in the car because it is quite tight.

What can we say? What a fantastic way to see the sites off San Francisco. I was a bit worried about driving on the right hand side of the road as I’m British. No real need to worry as the circuit you can take the speed limits are around 25mph. Once you are used to the controls it’s really a dawdle. Turn the sat nav up full volume and the car will guide you round. The people of San Francisco seem used to the gocars and nobody was impatient with us. We stopped twice on our journey, once at a beach and once near the bottom of the Golden Gate Bridge. It was amazing to drive down Lombard street. All in all a brilliant experience. Can’t recommend this tour highly enough.

It was ok, but the full price and options of insurance should be mentioned on the details. We decided to do the 2 hour tour, but we couldn't finish the trip due to the high traffic. Be aware that time will keep running even if you are stuck on traffic. Prices for extending time should be mentioned on the details to know the price. Since the two hours had passed and we wanted to be responsible on returning the car, I called the office and was assigned to use my GPS to returned (and we did that and it was a little scary). An extra hour cost $50-$60 depending on the time. I want to recommend planning ahead and if you're renting it decided the places you want to go. The GoCar GPS won't adjust it self if you get out of the route.
