Like maps, tour guides possess a wealth of city-specific information, prevent tourists from getting lost, and easily fold up to fit in carry-on luggage. Unfurl guided fun with today's Groupon: for $44, you get a two-hour, narrated, GPS-guided tour from GoCar Tours (an $88 value).
GoCars are little, sunshine-yellow storytelling cars, acting as magic transport eggs by safely cradling up to two passengers (aged 5 and older) through a narrated, GPS-guided tour of San Diego's hot spots. GoCars navigate the city terrain, describing the significance of historic sights such as Fort Stockton, originally a rest stop on the Comanche Trail, and the California Missions Museum, which hosts life-size replicas of Civil War–period Spanish missions and nearly half of Arnold Schwarzenegger's doppelgangers. Adventurers can choose between two different narrated tour routes: downtown San Diego or Point Loma. The downtown San Diego tour showcases urban views of Petco Park, Seaport Village, and the San Diego Zoo, and the Point Loma trek ventures into San Diego's maritime attractions, including the sleepy, shore-bound community called Ocean Beach. These copilot cars invite tour-goers to make detours and food stops, giving riders the freedom to shape their own tour according to their camera wants, appetites, and traveling intuition.
Just completed my second tour with Go Cars and it's just as good as I remember it.Maurice A., Yelp, 8/18/10
