  • GoCars hold a maximum of 2 people. Prices are per GoCar - not per person.
  • Pickup location must be chosen at time of booking. This is the location where your GoCar will be reserved
  • Driver must be 21 years or older to rent and must provide a major credit card and valid driver’s license at the time of check-in. A driver’s license must be in the customer’s physical possession (no photocopy). For foreign customer’s, an international license is not necessary.
  • Passengers must be 4 years of age or older - and small children must safely fit into one of our DOT approved helmets. The GoCar is registered as a motorcycle - but a motorcycle license is not required to operate the vehicle.
  • All renters must be able to read, understand and sign a liability release and waiver form (standard participant agreement)
  • On the day of rental, a $500 security deposit will be held on the customer’s credit card. If a CDW or SLI insurance plan is selected, a $150 security deposit will be held. The security deposit is released when the GoCar is returned.

  • Can you stop along the way? Yes, you set your own pace.
  • Do you have to stay on the tour? We recommend staying on the route. There are several fun detours included in the tour.
  • Vehicles: Are controlled with a motorcycle-style handle, throttle, and hand brakes. The 3-wheeled cars seat two and have a lockable trunk for your things. Their small size makes parking a breeze, and in San Francisco - a major bonus!
  • How fast does the car go? Up to 35-mph. Most roads on tour are residential or in parks, therefore an average speed of 30-mph or less can be expected while driving.
  • Can you cross the Golden Gate Bridge? No, but the tour will navigate you to Fort Point. Here 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.
  • What is a CDW? Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is an optional form of insurance similar to rental car insurance that limits your liability in case of accident. It is non-refundable. If you opt to purchase the CDW your deposit for rented a GoCar is only USD$150.00 instead of USD$500.00
  • Most travellers can participate
  • This is a private tour/activity. Only your group will participate

This was by far the best choice we made. We were exposed to so many different parts of SF that I’m sure we would not have found on our own exploring. Amazing guided tour. The staff were also super friendly and awesome. We headed back to not go over our time and when we returned

We booked online pretty much spur of the moment online, having seen this pop up in a Google search. We turned up, checked in, which was pretty painless and sat through a safety video, which didn't take to long all. The cars were all out on view, and right by the video

Our family did the early bird tour and loved it. The cars were easy to drive. They do not go in reverse but were easy to push if you needed to back up for any reason. We rented from the location near Fisherman's Wharf. Friendly staff. GPS tells you exactly where to go and gives
