The GoCar is by far the best way to see this city! My sister and I did this tour a couple of days ago, and WOW was it great fun! The GoCar is a three-wheeled open topped car for two people, complete with locking trunk. The best part is that it's GPS guided. You are provided with a map to follow along. If you follow the map, the GoCar (through the radio) will advise you where to turn and point out various sites along the way. Follow the map, or take a site trip to a unique site; if you leave the route, it will you know when you return and start up the commentary again. Touring made easy!The GoCar allows you to stop wherever you want, for however long you want, but assists with directions and adds interesting commentary along the way. If you don't want to hear it, just turn off the radio.We did the entire trip, stopping for lunch and to see all the sites, and the tour lasted about 6 hours. But since you're driving, you can make the tour as short or as long as you want. With an office just a block off Fisherman's Wharf, it's easy and convenient. Plus the whole city waves at you and takes your picture while you are out and about!
