Essential information *

* All details will be sent to you upon reservation.


Rent a Go Car and set off to see the best sites and monuments in San Francisco!

Alone or in a pair, zip around town in one of these dinky 3-wheeled tour cars. Your open-top GoCar will be equipped with a GPS and an audio-guide, leading you around the city’s top sites while giving you all kinds of information about what you see (available in 6 languages).

A choice of itineraries will be proposed to you according to the length of your outing. Cruise over to Golden Gate via the city’s iconic Presidio and Crissy Field parks; coast up the seafront, tasting the ocean air and checking out the stores on Chestnut Street; take on the maze of passageways leading to Russian Hill; or snake down the steep zigzags of Lombard Street – all of the routes are specially designed to show you around the best parts of the city.

Of course you can also create your own itinerary, either just going with the wind or by exploring the places that specifically interest you. Wherever you plan to go, this is a fun and informative way of getting there!
