San Francisco: 3-Hour Early Bird GoCar Tour
- Private group
- Duration: 3 hours
- Optional audio guide
Per group up to 2
So if you book your tour through this site, a few things to know - the "3-hour rental" is not actually a 3-hour rental of the GoCar, it's the "accessibility" of the car from 9am to 12pm. But the office in SF doesn't open until 9am, then you have to fill out waivers and other paperwork, then wait in line, then watch a safety video, then get fitted for helmets, and if you're lucky, you'll be in your GoCar by 10am. The GPS-guided route we took was super fun and informative, and allowed us to see things in SF in a memorable way. Remember to bring an extra sweatshirt as there's typically a marine layer along the coast that can make it pretty chilly in the morning. The route was long, even without stopping, so we didn't get back to the drop off until after 12:00. We would've had to pay extra but the manager waived it for us since we had such a late start (thank you!). I would do this activity again but will probably rent for the day next time so we won't be pressed for time.
My husband kinda chuckled when he saw these and learned this was what we were doing... it became his FAVORITE thing we did our entire trip! The audio with gps is worth $10... best history of anything we did. We didn’t want to be with the other 4 cars so we got to the front and took off and had a BLAST! We got to see all over San Francisco on our timeline so we stopped to explore more where we wanted to and skipped other areas we didn’t care to have more time.. we even took a detour into China’s town to try Dim Sum from the locals and it was well worth it- we used our gps when we we were close and then to get back on track- it was super easy! We also loved that the lady talking to us could’ve heard at all times without any struggle - the put a lot of thought into creating this experience... if they have these in other countries we Will Defiwntly be doing this again! Worth it! Also, sign up for 9 am so you get the 3 hours for 2 hour price! Worth it 100 PERCENT!
It was very exciting and lots of fun. We were able to go and explore places that tour buses were not allowed and we seen so many sites that go car had to offer. I highly recommend this activity for everyone.
We enjoyed the San Francisco Dungeon attraction, the hop on hop off bus and a Bay cruise. It allowed us to show our exchange student around this beautiful city easily while being reasonably priced.
