It was fun riding GPS guided go car. It is so small that you have to adjust but driving was very fun. It reminded me of... Auto Rikshaw in India. It makes too much noise that, everyone one the road gives attention to us when driving. We were able to cover two hour path including some stops to take pics. Can see both old and new town of San Diego in one shot.read more

If you're looking for a fun 2-3 hours to spend in the sun, this is definitely worth checking out! My friends from out... of town came in and we rented two of the electric vehicles, absolutely worth the upgrade. Such an awesome experience and a great way to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time. The GPS tour is wonderful, full of interesting information and easy to navigate if you get off of track. The vehicles are super clean, in great condition and fun to drive. 10/10 worth doing. Also, Merlin is wonderful, he will take great care of you, so ask for him if you go!read more

My wife and I experienced the GoCar rides for San Diego and it was amazing. Our first time in San Diego this was... definitely an experience for the books. The ride was easy and there was a recorded tour and pinpoints for more info about SD. The staff was nice and professional. They were very patient and just chill people that helped us feel more comfortable about being in a new place. If you are visiting SD and even if you are local this place and experience is going to be so much fun for you and your friends or significant other. Try it you won't regret it!read more

The craziest and most fun way to give a tour! Easy to drive, gives the option to learn or to just drive around. I wish... it would give options if the roads end up closed, but otherwise a cool experience.I recommend the morning because there are less cars 🙂read more

This was SO much fun, I highly recommend it. We live here in San Diego but hadn't gotten a chance to really see the... city. We rented the moped scooters and drove around for 2 hours. The tour is guided and gives you historical facts about each major location you pass. I think the scooter is a way cooler way to see the city and 2 hours was way too short. I think you should book the scooter for the entire day and ride it around, stop, have lunch, grab paleta, go on a longer tour route. It's totally worth it so you're not rushed to return it on time and really get to take in the city. We will definitely be doing this again when our family visits. Thanks to the awesome staff too!read more

Get the Vanderhall Roadster. It is worth the upgrade. A lot more room and extremely stylish. You don't look like a... tourist. You look like you are a local and cool. Great staff and communicated with me that there was a delay on my car. A must do as you find things that you normally wouldn't without a lot of research or stopping and getting out, reading stuff.read more

We did the one hour city tour on the GoCars. It was a lot of fun and I think I would do it again. The only thing I... didn't enjoy is that we didn't make any stops, went through the tour as quickly as possible and we still made it back late. We didn't even enjoy the last 20 minutes of the tour in fear of paying a hefty late fee. When we got back, she said we were fine and that they have a grace period. I think it would be nice to tell the customers that before because then we could have enjoyed the ride back instead of being stressed out. The tour they give you to do is extremely hard to complete in one hour. Especially if you hit all the red lights!read more

The go car ride was really fun and definitely recommend doing it if you’re visiting SD. We were looking forward to it... and had a day planned with other activities, however even though we made our reservation two days in advance, we had to wait for an hour!! because they didn’t have any cars available. Definitely something they need to get control of. I understand people can walk in and rent them same day but people with reservations shouldn’t have to waste an hour waiting for others to return their cars.read more

I prepaid for my reservation, when I showed up late they had already given away my rental. Being that I prepaid for the... rental I would have expected there to be a car available even if I was late. They then deducted the time that it took to get a new rental off my time.They focus on maximizing profits not honoring the clients who have prepaid for a reservationread more

First time going. The girl at the front was super energetic and sweet. The actual gocart is user friendly and fun to... operate, not to mention pretty fast. My only issue is the GPS screen is mounted under the dash on the passenger footwell. I took my eyes off the road several times to look down at the screen and make sure I stayed on course. However, the audio volume is adjustible and quite helpful. Nonetheless, it was a blast. Highly recommend!read more

A decently good time. The navigation system isn’t very good and one of the speakers in the vehicle wasn’t working so... with the loudness of the vehicle, the road, and the wind it was impossible to hear. Because it was so difficult to hear it was difficult to follow the navigation therefore we got off of the guided tour various times. Once you get off track the navigation offers zero help you get you back on track. It just stops talking and does not redirect you. It could have been a very cool and fun experience but unfortunately it was subpar.read more

The two of us rented one of the Gocars and went on the hour tour. The woman who checked us in seemed in a rush and told... us to hurry back before it got dark. We started our tour and everything seemed great until we noticed that our tour seemed to go on and on. It started to get dark and we started to get worried for our safety due to not having any headlights. At about 5:15 we called in because our tour map was still going. The guy said we took the wrong turn and followed the wrong color line. We never were told what to follow except just to follow the map. We told him we worried about our safety driving back due to not having lights. That is when the man mentioned to us that there were headlights. No one ever told us this nor was this ever mentioned in the training video!!!! When we got back, we explained exactly what we did and how we were late. He accused us of taking the wrong turn and acting as if we did this on purpose (although we had picture of the map and when we called in). He ignored the fact that we mentioned several times and had even called prior to arriving about our safety. He said that because we were late that we were going to get charged for the extra time. He saw that we were getting upset and said have a goodnight rushing us out. We asked who was the manager and he finally said he was. It wasn’t until then that he said he wouldn’t charge us for the extra time. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this FACILITY. THE STAFF DO NOT care for your safety. The manager is rude and not professional at all.read more

We arrived in the morning and were able to rent a Go Car right away. Marlon was very helpful and professional.A word... of warning, the routes seem impossible to do in the allotted time and it is a dollar a minute if you go over. We were fortunate in that we know San Diego and did the half hour route, it still took an hour to do it which is what we were allotted time wise.It was super fun and we had lots of people smile, wave, and give the thumbs up!!!I totally recommend this!read more

So I thought it would be cool to explore San Diego in a different Way and this was the perfect way to do it! We had never done anything like this and it was so much fun ! I highly recommend trying this out, we learned a lot about San Diego that we didn’t know before(: The staff was super sweet and very helpful and made us feel very welcomed !Thanks guys! We will be coming back, hope to see you soon. ☺️read more

This is a great place to go to have a small tour of the city. The hour tour takes you to Little Italy where you’ll find... all the happening food and drink places. You can park the GoCar and grab a bite to eat and the tablet will guide you back to the route. People in vehicles respects the little GoCar so you’ll feel safe while in it.

The cars/motorbikes were fun to drive and the public was in awe, waving and beeping at us as we followed our tour. Was a great way to get out there through this Covid situation.

Hard to find things to do that are safe during COVID-19. This definitely was a great choice. We rented the electric... scooters. The staff was friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Everyone was wearing masks. They sanitized all of the scooters before we went out. And we had a great time riding around the city, seeing the sights, and enjoying the fresh air, all while maintaining our distance from the crowds. We would definitely do that again - Highly recommend.read more
