GoCar Tours Madrid
Your self-drive GoCar tour, guided by GPS, is the most fun way to explore Madrid at your own pace. The talking GPS gives you directions that are clear, concise and informative, and it highlights specific locations throughout Madrid as you drive, providing a memorable experience during your time in the city. Your three-wheeled GoCar seats two and has a lockable trunk for your belongings. No experience is necessary, and you will receive helmets and a briefing on how to operate the car safely before you head out from the shop. Unlike a traditional tour, you decide where you want to go and when you want to stop. Your tour can take anywhere from one hour to three hours – the choice is yours. Simply get your car, choose a designated route or make up your own tour of the city, and let the fun begin! 1-Hour Tour: Take in the sights of Madrid’s Old Town on this tour of the city’s historic center. Drive past Plaza de España – the lavish square in the middle of Maria Luisa Park – and pass Plaza de la Puerta del Sol, home to Plaza Mayor – an impressive monument built during the time of the Hapsburg period. Listen to commentary explaining the era, and of the Hapsburg's role in shaping Madrid to the city as it stands today – with a wealth of grandiose architecture and monuments. Marvel at the extravagance of the Royal Palace (Palacio Real) and puzzle at the sight of Temple of Debod – an Egyptian sanctuary in the heart of the city! The city’s beautiful Almudena Cathedral (or Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Almudena to give its due) is included in your 1-hour tour, as well as the Latina, Huertas and Santa Ana neighborhoods. -------------------- ITINERARY -------------------- 1-Hour Tour:Take in the sights of Madrid’s Old Town on this tour of the city’s historic center.

This was actually one of the most terrifying experiences I had while in Spain. The GPS didn't work, and I immediately got lost. Madrid is a very confusing city, so I wasted a lot of time trying to back out of dead end roads which was an experience in of itself since there is no reverse, and getting back on track. I have no clue which sites I saw. I felt very unsafe riding around in this little go cart on main roads in a foreign city. I do NOT recommend UNLESS you are in a big guided group.

You are all on your own with the car in the city with a GPS talking to you through car stereo. Good luck to hear anything with the noise of the city and open car! You have to insure the car or take the chance of paying a fortune even if someone hits you. This expense was told us when we got there. Having an international driving license or translated one is the other extra charge 30 overall too expensive with lots of risks.

The actual tour in the gocar was great fun and an excellent way to see many parts of Madrid with the flexibility to plan your route and stop off at your leisure and the GPS system was very clear and easy to follow. However the pick up point and procedure were poor and unprofessional

First, these are not really cars but 3 wheeled motorcycles that are not in mint condition like the pictures. Our GPS malfunctioned from just normal driving so be warned that this can turn into more of an adventure that bargained for. Just know what you are getting in advance. Side note: Be aware that if you are from the US, you can only legally drive with your license transcribed which they didn't tell us until we got there and didn't offer us the option to do this (apparently it takes several hours if they do offer it).
