Essential information *

* All details will be sent to you upon reservation.


Get behind the wheel of a Go Car and explore San Diego! 

Alone or as a pair, climb aboard and start zipping through the streets. These mini 3-wheel cars have to be the quirkiest way to get around the city.

The car is equipped with an audio guide and GPS which will lead you towards the city's most beautiful sights. Choose an itinerary that matches the amount of time you have the GoCar for. For example, you can tour downtown San Diego by driving through Gaslamp Quarter, Little Italy and the Old Town. Perhaps you'll prefer driving along the bay to discover the USS Midway aircraft carrier, or getting away to coast to admire the famous beaches of California – it's up to you to decide!

You might just choose to go where the wind takes you, just following your mood. During this tour you are completely free and independent!
