Can you stop along the way?
Yes, you set your own pace. The car always knows where you are and you can park anywhere you want (motorcycle parking or car parking) for as long as you want, and as soon as you start to drive again, the car will begin to talk!

Do you have to stay on the tour?
Absolutely not! If there is a San Francisco sight you wish to see but is not yet included on the tour, just use the map provided to navigate your own way through the city streets. You can even put a CD in the stereo and enjoy music along the way!

Are controlled with a motorcycle-style handle, throttle, and hand brakes. The 3-wheeled cars seat two and have a lockable trunk for your things. Their small size makes parking a breeze, and in San Francisco - a major bonus!

How fast does the car go?
Up to 35-mph. Note that drivers in San Francisco do not typically drive fast, therefore an average speed of 30-mph or less can be expected while driving.

Can you cross the Golden Gate Bridge?
No, but the tour will navigate you to Fort Point. Here the bridge soars about 200-feet above your head. It is possible to gain pedestrian access to the bridge span from the car park at the bridge vantage point.

What is a CDW?
Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is an optional form of insurance similar to rental car insurance that limits your liability in case of accident. It is non-refundable. If you opt to purchase the CDW your deposit for rented a GoCar is only USD$150.00 instead of USD$400.00

  • Fun thing to do. There is no special lane for these cars so you need to be really careful in traffic. Staff at the Union Square location not at all helpful when we tried to tell them about a few issues...gps that stopped working etc. Get the higher insurance..I think it was 25.

  • This tour is a lot of fun. We had 2 cars in our group. One car had a side view mirror that would not stay in the correct position. Every time you hit a bump it would move. The second car had a gps that had a mind of its own and stopped working so they had to follow the other car. When we tried to tell the staff of the few issues we experienced it fell on deaf ears. They could care less. We picked the cars up from the Union Square location.

  • Great concept for a tour. We had perfect weather, perfect views, and a perfect time. Viator rocks!!

  • Incredible! So much fun! The best way to see the city. A bit scary when you start but you soon get the hang of it :

  • The door it’s self was very nice the experience of driving a go cart around was great the only thing I didn’t like was the guy at the pick up place near Hilton he was in a rush and a little bit rude

  • Love the Go Cars, great way to get around the city

  • Super Cool way to see the city sights

  • This was the best tour we've ever done. It was so unique in it's approach to seeing San Francisco and driving throughout the whole city was terrific! The GPS guide system needs to be refined, but this was such a great idea it's hard not to smile the whole trip.

  • Make sure you have an extra layer of clothing. It gets cold. Otherwise, a great way to see the city.
