With a vivacious guide this is a great way to see the city from a different angle. Interesting and a great way to spend an hour on a sunny summers day. At SEK 160 it is reasonably priced. Do it!

We took in this tour by using the Gothenburg City card (free) , guided in both Swedish and English, a mixture of fun and facts with an enjoyable cheese slicer bridge experience half way round, enjoyed more than the hop on hop off bus tour.

We had just over half a day in Gothenburg, so following lunch at the gorgeous Hotel Avalon, did the touristy thing and climbed aboard a Paddan Boat Tour. The tour was very well organised (despite them being a boat down in numbers than usual) and our guide Ellen was an absolute credit to Paddan. We really enjoyed her skilful, bi-lingual... More

We did the Paddan tour, it was great, we expend around 16€ per person for a 50 minutes ride around Gothenburg, the tour was great and the guide was very funny, we sailed through the canals of Gothenburg under very low bridges, it was a great experience and you have the opportunity of looking at the city from a different...

My husband and I thought the boat tour would be a good way to see the sights easily. We waiting longer than the timetable stated for the boat to arrive. And due to the tour not having headphones for your own language, most of what the tour guide said couldn't be understood. Unfortunately Gothenburg just wasn't that interesting to us... More

Dear Kellie, Thank you for your review. I am sorry you were not satisfied during your Paddan boat tour. We always do all our tours in both Swedish and English when we have guests that do not understand Swedish and in some cases also in German. Was this not the case when you were on board? Please send us an... More

I had some time to kill before I went to the airport and was on my own so I jumped aboard one of these boats. Our hosts was very enthusiastic and brilliant at his job I must say. The tour goes along the water and past the shipyards, giving a history of the buildings and educating you on Gothenburg's ship... More
