  • We had a good time on this tour, got lost twice cause the GPS navigation system is a little behind in speed, but we were able to get back on track with the help of an actual map they provided. For being in San Diego a limited time, its the only way we would have been able to see as much of the city as we did. We do recommend this tour, however, the all day tour in the car is hard on the body and we definitely recommend wearing older clothes cause the cars are quite dirty inside and we ruined some of our clothes.

  • Great way to see some of San Diego. Take the two hour tour, but follow the one hour route, then you will have time to stop at some of the sights along the way. We did the one hour tour and with a missed turn and slight detour were out for 1 hour and 15 minutes, no stops. Also, take the insurance, the roads and dips are terrible and I could see how the front end could easily get damaged.

  • Great fun! we did the 1 hour tour, this is great for just driving past all the places of interest, but if you want to stop and take photos and have a more leisurely drive you would need longer.

  • OK, Where do I start. Well I must say. This was the best thing I have ever done on any trip I was on. My daughter and I have never laughed so hard in our lives. We had such a great time driving around San Diego and seeing all the sights. We went during Comic-Con so it was busy. We meet Conan O'Brien in his costume and car on the streets that was pretty cool. We did the all day trip and that time went to fast. I would do this a couple of days. driving and parking is better then a rental car and you can get into spaces you normally can't get into. I am doing this again. And the guys at GoCar tours are awesome, The taught us every thing we needed to know and I was very comfortable. Bing sun screen, you will get sun. Have a blast. LOVE IT.

  • What a fun experience! We did the San Diego downtown/Balboa Park course. It took us around so many fun places and we got to see so much of the city at a very slow pace. : The GPS was a bit off and we got off route a few times, but they do give you a paper map as well so we were able to get back on course. The tour voice wasn't always on cue as well, but we caught on to what she was saying. Over all very hilarious experience driving on the roads of San Diego in a very small car with all the others cars.

  • My Bff was visiting here from Phoenix AZ and I booked this surprise for her and I can tell you we had so much fun
    That we would do it again. We posted on our face book and everyone enjoyed our video and plan to book this gocar
    When they are in San Diego...... Best money I have ever spent for so much fun

  • This was a great experience and an excellent alternative to the standard tours we had been offered via the cruise company. We were in San Diego for just one day and this enabled us to get a great snap shot of the city. We opted for the 2 hour tour, taking in Little Italy, the Harbour, The Glasslamp District and up to Balboa Park. We would highly recommend this fun GoCar experience.


  • Wonderful experience, well worth the time and money. We had a visitor from Spain staying with us. This was perfect, we toured Balboa Park like I have never seen it before. I highly recommend trying the GoCar tour for yourself. We will do it again the next time we have visitors from out of town.

  • I had an awesome day! the staff are so helpful!
