If you want to see San Fransisco from a different perspective that then this is the tour for you. We took the GoCar 2 seater buggy which comes with a GPS tour guide that takes you round two routes, depending on the tariff you opt for.
We did a full day which equated to $299 plus $25 in insurance. it may sound expensive but its a whole 8 hour for two, zipping about in these vehicles, taking in many sights and having a pure adrenaline rush. The virtual guide is spot on and during our day we took in both routes, even venturing to the Giants ground on game day.
We took in places we wouldn't have considered including the fabulous Palace of Fine Arts, beautiful beaches and a walk across the golden gate bridge (you cannot drive this, you have to park and walk over). The longer tour takes you out of the city. We took in the artisan, winding roads, parks, lakes, culture and beautiful architecture. We There are also detours which we took advantage of ..... we were able to take in the breathtaking views of Twin Peaks .
The shorter route is very much city and takes in China Town, the main shopping area, the port etc. Also awesome but we are glad we did the whole day. Family members did 2 hours and did not enjoy the experience..... this was purely because of nerves and tetchy weather and no reflection on the tour company or the route.
The cars sit low so be mindful if you have a bad back. For us UK drivers the left hand drive could be a challenge (luckily 'my driver' (hubby) was experienced having driven abroad before).
We buddied up with a lovely Canadian couple who we met on the tour and we have stayed in touched. The benefits to this is capturing those couple photos you want but don't like handing your phone over for, especially when you aren't brilliant at selfies.
The staff at GoCars were amazing. They let my 'man child' sit in the souped up cars for photo's which then prompted every other 'man child' to do the same while wives/partners looked on most bemused.
This was an amazing experience for us both which we absolutely recommend. Superb......
