GoCar San Diego is the first-ever GPS guided storytelling tour car! Today, it’s the most exhilarating, entertaining and enlightening way to tour the city. Leave your guidebook behind and see the San Diego most visitors never see. Hop into a GoCar and let this little yellow car take you on a guided tour of this fantastic city!

With GoCar San Diego, a talking car cleverly navigates you through the city. As you drive, it points out the sights and tells you the stories that bring San Diego to life. The greatest thing is that you go at your own pace, not the pace set by a tour bus operator. Also, you can select the attractions you want to stop and see!

You can stop for photos, take detours, grab a coffee or break for lunch. (You'll actually be able to park your GoCar!) You can blaze your own trail and explore the city streets, neighborhoods and parks on your own, or you can make your GoCar San Diego experience a leisurely day trip, stopping to explore attractions or museums along the way. It’s totally your choice.

If you’re having the time of your life, keep exploring! San Diego is a fantastic city with plenty to see.

Fun experience but not enough time and a $5 charge.
By Mo from San Diego on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations GoCar Tours; 30 minute navigational tour:

Everything was good except for feeling rushed because 30 min goes by super quick when you're having fun. Beware at the very end while checking out we were told we had to pay a $5 charge. This came out of nowhere and seemed sketchy. The point of the GoCard is to get a great deal and not to pay extra. I've used GoCard before and have never had to pay for anything extra.

Great Time....Loved It!
By Sheri Verified Reviewer from Southern California on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations GoCar Tours; 30 minute navigational tour:

This was a blast. Last minute and friend and I decided to take a Go Car out for a spin. At first I was pretty weary of driving but after the video and a few minutes riding passenger, I was ready to go. The car was extremely easy to handle and a LOT of fun to drive. I loved the narration provided by the GPS. This is not my first time in San Diego, but I learned a lot of interesting facts and enjoyed the humor. It was also nice to know we were not going to get lost! Bottom line, I think this is a great concept. I have two boys ages 11 & 13 and I am looking forward to bringing them next time. This really is a great family activity! My only regret is not taking the car for longer. Instead of cabbing around San Diego to go to the Midway etc. next time I will extend for an entire day. This way I can stop along the way to see the sights and take it slow.

Comments about Smart Destinations GoCar Tours; 30 minute navigational tour:

I love this tour with the Go San Diego Card! I took the 30 minute tour and it was a blast. You can also upgrade to a one hour so you have time for some stops for a really low rate (they will give you the offer). I thought the tour was so much fun and it was a very adventurous experience in general. The cars reminded me of big wheels for adults - very easy to drive but lots of fun. Plus, what better way to see the sights than in a convertible on a warm sunny day? I loved the GPS system - it will give you a very personalized look at the area and explain fun tidbits of history and facts about San Diego. Definitely a "must see."
