Full description
If you want to experience the sites most visitors never see then fold up your map, put away the guidebook and jump into a GoCar. Zip all over town in one of San Francisco's iconic yellow cars with the help of GPS-guided tour technology. Your clever talking car navigates and shows you the way – but that’s not all. As you enjoy the drive, it takes you to all the best sites, recommends restaurants, cracks jokes and tells the stories that bring a destination to life. The early bird special is a unique offer for those willing to wake up before the crowds begin to congregate. Start your tour at Fisherman's Wharf. Your GoCar allows you the freedom to choose your own route - simply follow one of the provided maps or make your own itinerary as the patented GPS-driven tour guide follows along with your route and keeps pace along the way.  Wind down the world-renown Lombard Street, the most crooked street on the west coast. Explore the city's most famous parks like the Presidio, Crissy Field, and Golden Gate Park, the site of the famous Summer of Love. Snap incredible photos of the Pacific Ocean along Highway 1 and Ocean Beach. Park underneath the Golden Gate Bridge and cross on foot and navigate away from the crowded tour buses beneath the China Town Gate. See the sites, enjoy the Californian sun and choose your own adventure as you explore the city on your own terms.

This was the coolest thing in the world! The gps tour was very informative and it's a great experience to explore the city. I would recommend doing 3-5 hours to really soak in each spot around the city. But you could do the whole tour in under 3 hours if you didn't stop.

This and visiting Alcatraz were my favorite things to do in San Fran. This is a great way to see the city. We did the 3 hour tour. The trip route recommends lots of places to park and get out - but you can’t do them all or you’ll run out of time if you’re on a 2 or 3 hour allotted trip. This tour goes through Lombard street. Some of the “cars” are in pretty rough shape. They are getting their use for sure. We had no issues whatsoever and the GPS worked great, very informative and offered clear turn-by-turn guidance. This is a must-do activity in San Francisco! I loved it!
