My wife and I along with our children (kids aged 9 and 12) rented the GoCars around Porto to quickly see all of the sites. It was a different and fun way of seeing everything quickly, which we accomplished. There were a few things that did make it difficult in Porto. First, the GPS on the GoCar was not accurate. They are using old technology so it didn't update as quickly as needed so we missed a few turns. Also, driving this small GoCar in the city of Porto is challenging. While most cars gave you the right of way, you almost felt like you were going too slow on the city streets which created some stress. Once you got to the water where it was less busy, it was super nice and you could park your GoCar and take in the sites. Overall, it was a fun way to take in Porto but I'm not sure we would do this again.

The navigation system could have been saved. You don't see anything during the trip and you don't hear anything as far as the sights are concerned, which is a shame, because that would be the only tour on which you would have had anything German. Driving fun is guaranteed, just as noticeable. We were on the road for 2 hours and would have liked it to have been longer. For people with disc problems.....take a pillow with you. ;-)

Super fun experience to do! Please note: you don't get a lot of info explained when you pick up, because English is not their forte. Eventually you will find your way with the GPS. Personally, we found an hour more than enough to see the city center completely. We noticed that the gocars are not that well known in the city itself, because all eyes were on us. Definitely recommended as a fun activity to get to know the city!
