I enjoyed this tour a great deal. I have been to Gothenburg a few times, and seeing it from the water helped string the sights together for me. In addition, I saw many things I had never seen before. The canals through the city pass many key sites. Plus, many of the water views are incredibly picturesque since Gothenburg has... More

Great guide and nice tour. We went at the wrong time of the year and froze, plus it was raining like crazy so we made the decision to turn back.

I've done the paddan trip and it was really good. The staff was really friendly and the guide told us a lot of funny histories about the city. It was a little bit cold bus they put something on the boat to protect us. If you want to know better the city this is a great thing to do :)

The boat tour was lots of fun, the guide very informative and the views gorgeous (some of our best holiday pictures were taken on this tour). The only drawback was that we weren't prepared for the cold wind and ended up with sore throats the next day. The Paddan Boat gives you a view of Gothenburg from a different and... More

Ok, the jokes were bad, the puns terrible and the English a little wobbly at times, but here is a fun way to see Gothenburg from the water. The Paddan boats offer a 50 minute tour of central Gothenburg's canals and harbour with a live dual Swedish / English commentary and, just when you get comfortable, you get warned about... More

The boat ride (which I did for free with the gotheburg card) was really fun, the staff on board gave historical information about the city and at the same time fun with a brilliant talk. it was nice to see the city from the river, I highly recommend it

If you visit Gothenburg there's a great way to learn and see more of the city, just embark upon the Paddanbåtarna. Here you'll get a nice view of the real Gothenburg and also guided by swedish/english speaking guides. I learned a lot of my hometown on this trip actually. I higly recomend both tourists and locals to go for a... More

we went on the Paddan boat tour using the Go: card and it was quite enjoyable. The Swedish guide alternated between Swedish and English and was very enthusiastic. It is quite funny when everyone on the boat has to crouch on the floor to fit under one of the bridges

the tour was extremely nice, the guide was great and you get to see a good part of the city in one ride, including the two lowest bridges of the city, where you have to take care not to loose your head ;)
