Hop inside the world’s first-ever GPS-guided tour car and hit the town! This revolutionary tour experience will allow you to see San Diego’s top landmarks, neighborhoods, and more all from the comfort of your GoCar. Make the tour your own by stopping along the way to try some of San Diego’s renowned restaurants, shopping, and attractions.


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.

"Horrible experience DO NOT DO THIS!"

The cars are a road hazard. You spend most of your time just trying to navigate the streets without getting hit by other cars. The gps is slow and tells you to turn long after you were supposed to, and then shuts off because you went off route. The cars are small, and go really slow, make a lot of noise, and are really uncomfortable. Additionally the guy tried making me pay an extra 10$ for parking without telling me before. I came back after 20 minutes of boredom (it was supposed to be a 2 hour tour!) And i wasn't even offered any kind of refund. I emailed them and didn't get any response. This is not worth your time and money.

"Different and Interesting Tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We wanted to do something different than a guided tour of San Diego, and since it was a beautiful day we opted for the GoCar tour. It was fun to drive around the city and learn about the sites via a GPS voice who knew where we were. You can also customize the tour to how ever long you want to be out on the road. We opted for the two hour tour through downtown and Balboa Park. I highly recommend this tour if you're with a small group or even a large group.

What a fun way to tour the town! We did an hour tour, which gives a whistle stop tour of the major San Diego sights, but no time to loiter, but a great way to decide where to go and spend time later.

"Best excursion ever!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed August 13, 2017
The Gocars are located inside the Pacific Rent a Car place. When we saw the cars I was really nervous because they didn't look like the picture we saw. They are dented and cracked. I have a bad back and I quickly became nervous about that as well. However, once we started going it was so fun. They weren't as bumpy as you would think and we had a blast as people would honk at us and want to take our picture. Be sure to take the Point Loma tour. The GPS tells you exactly where to go and where to turn. We rented for the whole day and took every tour. After 7 hours we finally returned the GoCar. It was awesome!
