  • This was actually one of the most terrifying experiences I had while in Spain. The GPS didn't work, and I immediately got lost. Madrid is a very confusing city, so I wasted a lot of time trying to back out of dead end roads which was an experience in of itself since there is no reverse, and getting back on track. I have no clue which sites I saw. I felt very unsafe riding around in this little go cart on main roads in a foreign city. I do NOT recommend UNLESS you are in a big guided group.

  • Go car very unsafe (fuel to power ratio problem) gps direction inaccurate and no information given about any place just the name.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • it was an amazing tour. It's an adventure in the middle of the city. The staff was kind and polite. I was happy to try it!
    Thank you!

  • Rubbish,first lost our booking then arrived 15 mins late in a battered dirty car with dodgy sat nav.we set off and almost immediately the satnav went wrong,one second we were on the route the next we were off it but we had only moved 3 feet.this carried on it was so annoying .

  • You are all on your own with the car in the city with a GPS talking to you through car stereo. Good luck to hear anything with the noise of the city and open car! You have to insure the car or take the chance of paying a fortune even if someone hits you. This expense was told us when we got there. Having an international driving license or translated one is the other extra charge 30 overall too expensive with lots of risks.

  • Very nice experience.

  • Brilliant !! Really good fun. The car was a real novelty and the Sat Nav really does keep you on track.

  • The actual tour in the gocar was great fun and an excellent way to see many parts of Madrid with the flexibility to plan your route and stop off at your leisure and the GPS system was very clear and easy to follow. However the pick up point and procedure were poor and unprofessional
