Tour San Francisco on three wheels instead of six with Go Car Tours

The steep, narrow streets of San Francisco are not the most RV-friendly, especially when it comes to parking. Instead, consider leaving the RV parked elsewhere and touring the sights of San Francisco in a three-wheeled Go Car. The GPS-guided, talking Go Car allows adventurers to zip around the city in a bright yellow vehicle, visiting popular tourist attractions while listening to interesting, recorded tidbits about the sights along the way. These tiny, two-seater cars can go places where a tour bus or RV could never go. With Go Cars, parking is a breeze. These compact vehicles are allowed to park in spaces reserved for motorcycles.

The best feature of Go Car Tours is going at your own pace. Tour-takers can stop for photographs, or even lunch. If you take a detour along the way, the narration will pick up upon return to the route. A map is also provided if you choose to chart your own course.

Some of the tour highlights include Fisherman’s Wharf, Ghiradelli Square, Baker Beach, Lands End, the Legion of Honor, Golden Gate Park, Cliff House, and the Palace of Fine Arts. More than 50 historical points and landmarks are included in the tour. You get to choose the sights you wish to visit, and the talking car will give you driving directions mixed with interesting stories. You can complete your tour in one hour, or take all day, the choice is yours.

Go Car Tours are available in five languages and six cities, including San Diego, Miami, Lisbon, Madrid, and Barcelona.
