Read about this adventure in a guide book found in our condo. Looked like fun so we went down to the office. GoCar shares an office with a car rental company & to leave your car there while you pay & go on your tour, you must pay $10 to park. This does not appear in your ad. In addition... More

We were really looking forward to our Go Car Tour in San Diego as recommended by a friend at work. Unfortunately it was spoiled by a poor reservation experience and even worse after sales service. We booked and paid via the website for an 8:30am slot (we were on a tight schedule and so wanted to get started early) on... More

Went on one of these tours with my buddy for two hours which was way too long. We had a fun time however the little car felt like it was going to break down the whole time. We also expected more content throughout the tour. Our speakers also didn't work which wasn't fun for the tour aspect. I would recommend... More

Late post... this was an amazing way to explore San Diego. The staff was very knowledgeable. It was great to see the sights at our own pace and it was a lot of fun driving in the little cars. Recommended it to all my friends who visit San Diego!

We would do this again. Cars are small, low to ground, with a max speed of 30 mph, and do ride a little rough. With that being said, all other vehicles on road were respectful of our tiny car. Has GPS guided tour. Have the option of 1, 2, or 3 hrs. The narration from GPS hit the highlights as... More

This was the perfect activity for a bachelorette party visiting from the east coast! The staff was super helpful with planning and answering questions.

We had a blast! Jianna was fantastic! We took only a short one hour tour but, immediately wanted to go again. Interesting commentary throughout the tour and the car/tour takes you to places you would probably miss. The cars only go thirty miles an hour - which seems quite fast when your driving. We had the Go San Diego card... More

The cars are cute and it is a fun and different way around but the ride is a little rough and the narration sometimes lags so as you pass a street it then tells you to turn. Also seemed like a lot of the cars needed some type of repairs.
