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.

I called to book three cars for my family to go out in and I was very shocked to find that they would not let my son drive one of the cars. They turned me and my family away because we were black. The man on the phone was very rude and snobby, and I could hear the hate for... More

I was a little hesitant to book this as I wasn't sure what to expect. Boy I'm glad I took the chance! There is simply no better way to have a tour of the city! We booked for a little longer and that allowed us to get out at some of the sites and explore. We spent extra time at... More

What an incredible way to tour a city! I took my boyfriend on one of these tours for our anniversary, and it was an amazing date! Romantic, team-building, and more fun than can be said with words!

I have previously posted a negative review (2 years ago) and didn't have the best experience here at GoCars...... the GoCars themselves are great and a great idea but 2 years ago the cars were in bad shape and the people running the go cars were shady and unprofessional.
