What You'll Get
While it does present a choice opportunity to meet single mole-people, walking through sewers is a disappointing way to explore a city. Shine a brighter light on local wanderlust with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a 2.5-hour Miami Beach Grand GPS tour from GoCars (a $99 value). GoCars are little, sunshine-yellow storytelling cars, acting as magic transport eggs by safely cradling up to two passengers (ages 5 and older) through a narrated, GPS-guided complete tour of South Beach, Miami Beach, and downtown Miami, encompassing virtually any part of Miami a tourist or explorist might want to see.
GoCars navigate the city terrain, describing the significance of historic sights and cultural landmarks as you zoom past (with a zoom limit of 35 mph) with haste or slowly saunter by for photo ops. GoCar lets you explore at your own pace or follow the narrated Miami Beach tour route. Sightseers take in views of the downtown skyline while driving across Biscayne Bay, motor through notorious hot spots such as Ocean Drive, and gaze upon exclusive residential neighborhoods rumored to appear only on prime-numbered dates to preserve their seclusion.
Bilingual GoCars are fluent in English and Spanish thanks to engineers devising a way to fit tongue deciphering Rosetta Stones into engine blocks. These co-pilot cars invite you to make detours and food stops, giving riders the freedom to shape their own tour according to their camera wants, appetites, and traveling intuition.
GoCar was named one of the coolest inventions in Time magazine.

About GoCar Tours
Even before you climb inside, the GoCar is clearly a car with a personality. The petite, three-wheeled two-seater has a hood that slightly resembles an eager-to-please smiley face, and an open top that seems custom-made for letting the breeze ruffle your hair. Then the real fun begins: built with the company's own software and a compassion for the voiceless robots of America, a talking GPS system guides two-seater GoCars through the city streets of San Francisco, San Diego, Miami, Barcelona, Madrid, and Lisbon with cheerful, info-rich narration. Second only to having a knowledgeable local jog alongside your minivan, tours zip along at drivers' own pace and accommodate as many pit stops as time allows.
