Fun Activity but Tour Title is Misleading

So if you book your tour through this site, a few things to know - the "3-hour rental" is not actually a 3-hour rental of the GoCar, it's the "accessibility" of the car from 9am to 12pm. But the office in SF doesn't open until 9am, then you have to fill out waivers and other paperwork, then wait in line, then watch a safety video, then get fitted for helmets, and if you're lucky, you'll be in your GoCar by 10am. The GPS-guided route we took was super fun and informative, and allowed us to see things in SF in a memorable way. Remember to bring an extra sweatshirt as there's typically a marine layer along the coast that can make it pretty chilly in the morning. The route was long, even without stopping, so we didn't get back to the drop off until after 12:00. We would've had to pay extra but the manager waived it for us since we had such a late start (thank you!). I would do this activity again but will probably rent for the day next time so we won't be pressed for time.

A great way to get your tickets and skip the long lines

California Academy of Sciences is a great place if you are interested in nature, you can experience the rainforest, visit the aquarium, experience an earthquake, and so much more, this activity will take you at least 3 hours, good idea to take breaks between exhibits. This place is always busy, so parking can be a challenge unless you are prepared to pay $24 for parking at the cal Academy garage. Buying the tickets was easy and hassle free, tried printing the ticket but the printer was out of order so I thought I could use the mobile app to enter the activity, not the case, I had to email calacademy.org the PDF version of the ticket to have our tickets issued to us, we still were able to skip the line and the staff at the Academy of Sciences was very helpful and accommodating. In short, you are better off printing the PDF version of your voucher/ticket, since Academy of Sciences does not seem equipped to scan the app from your phone.

fabulous day at the california academy of sciences

some amazing highlights: - the aquarium with coral reef and glass tunnel with fish swimming around you - the rainforest area with butterflies all around you - the roof with beautiful flowers and grassy "hills" - interactive exhibits in each area, for various ages of kids (and adults :-) )

Excellent experience for the entire family. Ease of use was great.

We took our grandchildren to this beautiful museum and it was a wonderful experience. The kids enjoyed the rainforest, the aquarium and the planetarium shows. I was not overly crowded, so it made for a delightful afternoon.

Spent an entire day there and still so much more to do

We spent an entire day at the science academy and where just able to nibble on all the exebitions. It is a very wide variety of things to see and do.
