Such a fun afternoon. Great way to see San Diego. Car is a lot of fun. The two-hour tour through downtown, Old Town, and Balboa Park covers a lot of ground and gives you a peek at a lot of sights. I’m glad we did the two-hour car tour instead of the one-hour scooter tour. I think we had a lot more fun covering the larger area.

We had a delightful tour and one of these cute little girl cars around old town, downtown and Balboa Park in San Diego. GPS and descriptions of the amenities were very enjoyable and humorous. We made our way around the entire area within a two hour period and drop the car off safely. I’d recommend this is a good way to introduce yourself to some of the areas of San Diego that you may not be familiar with.

The talking GPS failed we got on the phone four times couldn’t correct it she finally came out and swapped it out so that was a waste of half an hour sitting on the side of the road then the one she swapped us out stopped working as well after about 15 minutes so we were in a strange city I had to pull up my own phone GPS to try and get back there was a serious delay and the actual machine was so loud and I was afraid it was gonna blow up off and I could not hear the GPS talking even when it was working in addition you need to change the shocks are springs the ride was extremely rough overall it was poorly executed a poor quality machine and so it was quite a fearful experience and I would never recommend it to anyone I assume we got a bad machine but what are the odds of getting a good one?I asked for a refund and of course they said no terrible experience overall find something else to do

The GPS was accurate and the volume was adjustable perfect for hearing every word of the narration. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The movie was very informative as was the checkout person. They will make sure you’re comfortable before you leave the lot.

This was a fun way to see different parts of San Diego but not one you would want to do if you wanted to get out and visit the sights. San Diego is the perfect place for this type of activity because of the beautiful weather.
Just understand that even though the name of this is GPS talking car it isn’t like Siri who will recalculate if you get lost. If you get lost or miss a turn it’s up to YOU to get back on track. We had a paper map with the route on it but we had a hard time reading the names of the streets. Overall, we had a ball.

Fantastic birthday experience! Saw a ton of San Diego and learned so much about its history and sites. Will definitely be going back to spend more time at Balboa Park!

We've already told our friends all about it -- would definitely recommend for a great experience seeing the very best of San Diego!

This was a fun way to see the sights and visit some off-the-beaten-path routes not open to vehicles. In two hours, we covered a lot of ground and had a great time driving around downtown and Balboa park. I would highly recommend this to anyone else looking to visit San Diego!
