What To Expect
GoCar, The Cure for the Common Tour®, lets you experience the beauty of San Diego and visit places tour buses cannot go - all at your own pace!
Fold up your map, put away the guidebook and let the GoCar show you what most visitors never see! Zip around in a cute, yellow GoCar as it takes you on your own GPS-guided tour. The GoCar is easy and fun to drive. Since it's GPS-guided, the car knows where you are - even if you don't. With you in the driver's seat, it not only tells you where to turn, it tells the stories that bring the city to life. Let the car direct you, or for those more adventurous, blaze your own trail!
Take a GPS-guided tour in the Storytelling Car® and see for yourself why TIME Magazine called GoCar "The Most Amazing Invention of the Year!" Let GoCar be your guide to explore Shelter Bay with its unique vibe, climb up toward Point Loma, take in tremendous views of San Diego Bay and Coronado Island, then ride down toward Ocean Shore, where you'll feel more like you are in Mexico than California's second largest city. As you make your way back, you will visit the beach community of Ocean Beach and return to Little Italy in this 3-hour tour.
GoCar Tours is certified CarbonNeutral® by offsetting all CO2 emissions from vehicle operations, electricity use, business travel and employee commuting across global operations in Barcelona, Lisbon and the United States.
