What is a GoCar?
GoCar is the world's first computer-guided storytelling car. The clever talking car navigates for you, but that's not all. As you drive, it points out the sights and tells you the stories that bring the city to life.
How long does the tour take?
The tour can take as long as you like - that's the whole point. You go at your own pace, not the pace set by a tour bus operator. As you go, you're choosing the attractions you want to stop and see. You can complete the tour in as little as one hour if your time is limited. You can also make it a leisurely day trip if you'd rather, stopping to explore attractions along the way. It's totally your choice. If you're having the time of your life, keep exploring! It's a fantastic city and there's plenty to see. The average tour duration is 2-3 hours.
Can I stop along the way?
Of course! You set your own pace! The car always knows where you are and you can park anywhere you want (motorcycle parking or car parking) for as long as you want, and as soon as you start to drive again, the car will narrate your tour/drive.
Do I have to stay on the tour?
Absolutely not! If there is a sight you want to see but it is not included on the tour, simply use the provided map to navigate through the city streets. You can even put a CD in the stereo and enjoy music along the way!
Can I cross the Golden Gate Bridge?
No, but the tour will navigate you to Fort Point. The bridge soars about 200-feet above your head. It is possible to gain pedestrian access to the bridge span from the car park at the bridge vantage point.
Can the GoCar climb all of San Francisco's hills?
GoCar can climb all hills with one person, but with a passenger on board, there are some hills that it cannot climb, like the ones the cable cars can climb. The GoCar still manages to get to some of the highest summits of the City like Twin Peaks and Lombard St. The GPS routes you on approaches that the car can handle.
Are there foreign-language tours?
The GoCars speak 5 languages!  When you arrive, you may request a tour in Italian, Spanish, French, German or English. On a foreign-language tour, the GoCar will provide clear driving directions and tour narration in your language of choice.
How fast does the car go?
The GoCar will go 35-mph.Drivers in the city do not typically drive fast, therefore an average speed of 30-mph or less can be expected while driving.
Is vehicle insurance available and how much does it cost?
Yes, the daily collision damage waiver for the rental is similar to a car rental and costs $12/day for the GoCar if elected by the driver.
