from GoCar San Diego

San Diego is the birth place of California. With its year-round mild and sunny climate, miles of sandy beaches, rich military history, amazing parks and historic old town, San Diego is as full of fun, lore and beauty as any city in America. And the GoCar — the first-ever GPS-guided Storytelling car® — is the perfect way to take advantage of that cultural diversity. Especially when it’s time to take a break from the beach!

One of the best ways to appreciate San Diego’s wonders is to get out of town. That’s right – tell your car’s tourist-friendly GPS to guide you to the Cabrillo Monument, a shrine erected in honor of the Spanish explorer who landed on local shores in 1542. On a crystal clear day, the panoramic views can’t be beat.

Stop along the way to visit the USS Midway aircraft carrier, SeaWorld San Diego or even the world famous San Diego Zoo. And don’t pass up the opportunity to explore all of Balboa Park – with over 25 museums and attractions, it’s the largest cultural park in America.

You can make the tour as long or short as you want. Best of all, the adventure happens at your pace. You can stop for photos, take detours, grab a coffee or break for seafood al fresco. You can also blaze your own trail and explore the city streets, neighborhoods and parks on your own.

Experience what the press is buzzing about, what visitors rave about, and what Time Magazine called “one of the most amazing inventions of the year.

"Not so cool, overcharged by GoCar after returning"

Service was not at all good, they even charged my card after i returned the car without informing me. As we went for just 3 days to San diego and did not notice that they have charged my credit card, now they are saying that the amount deducted was for some insurance and will not be refunded.

Great ride. Occasionally lost connecting to computer tour. But regained quickly. Could use a little more power. Unbelievably good fuel economy. Four hours on one gallon of gas.

"Completely a waste of time"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed January 06, 2018
The engine is so loud that I just heard a few words from GPS audio, missing the turning instructions most of time. Half an hour tour will give you a small part of the route. What a waste of my vacation time! Strongly not recommend to anyone except those just want to waste time riding loud motorcycles for fun!
