About
You will start in historic Little Italy that was home to the Italian community, and see how it evolved into the modern business and artistic community it is today. Make your past the ships in the bay that explored the new world, or patrolled the waters in time of war, into the Gaslamp Quarter which was once San Diego’s red-light district and see how it got re-imagined into the social scene it is today. As you leave modern San Diego you will begin your trip into history as you make your way through beautiful Mission Hills, you will pass many houses and businesses 50 years old and some much older. Your jump into history will take you past Historic Fort Stockton, into Presidio Park where the old Spanish Mission used to stand, into Old Town San Diego where you can see how San Diego looked in the old west with its Spanish and American residents forming a thriving community. *If booking more than 2 people please submit separate orders!

Great way to see San Diego. GPS was great - both from a direction standpoint and from an info standpoint. Upgrade to electric car was worth it.

We had so much fun - really great to see so much of San Diego and there were no hairy moments - pretty quiet on the streets and other motorists seem use to these little carts in the city. Fantastic! So much better than I imagined.

So much fun! It took a little to get used to, but once we did we had a great time. Lots of laughing! Navigation was easy to follow. We only took 1 wrong turn in the beginning. Got lots of attention from onlookers. We would definitely do this again

It was a whole new way to see San Diego. Been coming here for several years and had no idea of some of the sights to see. I completely recommend. Knowledgeable and helpful staff.

We had a lot of fun doing this. When you first get started you’re waiting for the tour to begin. But once you start hitting some historical spots you see it’s worth it. There were a couple things you couldn’t see with current construction but otherwise you hit all the spots they say. The staff working were pleasant, helpful, and just genuine nice guys.
Recommend: sunscreen, no more than one bag to bring with you, and a charged cell phone in case you need to call for help with directions. :)

Great place! My husband and I came here with my sister and brother-in-law for her wedding gift from us & they were exceptionally patient with our late-arrival and whatnot! Very professional and nice guy that worked there! The go car experience was really fun! Highly recommend!!

Very disappointing tour. It was GPS guided but told you very little about the city and various sectors it took you through. For the price of the tour I expected better, and regret spending money on that vs another tour/company. We ended the tour a little early because we weren't having that great of time. Also, our GoCar was very beat up and sounded and felt like it would fall apart at any moment.
