Fun excursion, though seating is a bit uncomfortable and vibrations are very strong, both made worse by many potholes.
The GPS guide is useful and informative.

The "talking car" is definitely a fun way to see and learn about a city. You attract a lot of attention in the little yellow car. We went on a busy afternoon and it was sometimes difficult to merge or turn when we needed to. The GPS doesn't...continued

The GPS guide was a little vague about directions, so I ended up making more than a few wrong turns. Sometimes it tells you to turn in the middle of an intersection, which is inadequate notice, and sometimes it gives you three different options,...continued

This was a great way to see the city. I have been to San Diego many times but saw new things this time. The GoCars were a fun experience all on there own. Traffic was courteous and I felt safe. It is a great way to show out of town guests the city.

Be prepared to pay additional expenses such as: Off site parking ( the parking lot was 2 blocks away). They also charged for the helmet rental,car rental insurance and they deducted $300.00 from my debit as a form of security (Temporary charge in...continued

I'll first go over driving the car and then the experience of the tour. The car rides like a moped, but with two wheels in front like a car. And so while it was bumpy, you learn quickly that the ride can be smoothed out by adjusting your direction...continued

Lots of fun, tooling around SD like a celebrity. The GoCar really does draw a crowd, and we had lots of other tourists taking our picture and waving. Practice your parade wave for your adoring fans!
The car itself is pretty easy to drive, and...continued

My wife and I were excited to do this, having read the great reviews on Goldstar. The day was cloudy and cool but we dressed warm knowing that these GoCars are open. It took about 10 minutes to get used to driving the little thing but we both...continued

Our group of 4 loved the experience! It was amazing what we saw in 2 hours of driving. The cars were fairly easy to maneuver around town but you had to listen carefully for dirctions and be ready to change lanes quickly.
Everyone should do it!

These cars are NOT cars but very small low to the ground three wheeled go-CARTS. If you are over 5'8" don't even think of being comfortable, if you are even able to get your legs into the cart! They don't mention you have to leave a $300.00...continued

this is awesome. it's a good deal through goldstar and if you go over your time (2 hrs.) it's not too expensive for the additional time. We did the Point Loma tour and it was very awesome!

This was great to really see San Diego. In the beginning it was difficult because the GPS did not work, but the staff was great trying to resolve the issue. I think though if you do this it would be better to rent for an additional 2 hours so...continued

This was our second time renting a Go Car. It is such fun! The staff is friendly and helpful, and tooling around the city is an experience of a lifetime. You do get tons of attention, which only adds to the adventure. I would highly recommend...continued

We had a great time with our Go Car!!! My friend Sean and I went through Little Italy to get used to the feel of the vehicle, then headed up for Balboa Park. We went through Hillcrest, the Park and Banker's Hill. We beeped and waved at almost...continued
