My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip in the Paddan flat boat, through they canal and into the river, every little detail of the city being explained along the way, also the day was beautiful, a must if you visit Gothenburg, forgery the rest do this.

This is good way to see the city without the effort of walking. The only effort required is for crouching down under the low bridges. This can be an issue if the boat is full or for the elderly or infirm as your head needs to be lower than the seat back. That aside the commentary is interesting, and humourous... More

I always love to go on sightseeing by boat when I visit different cities, where possible. It is a good way to relax after walking a lot and still see a lot of sights. It is nice to cruise the channels in Gothenburg, and pass under the really low bridges.

It takes about 50 min, includes getting splashed by waves (very gently) and crouching on the floor of the boat while passing under some low bridges, and gives a nice overview of the city and its harbour. Accessible and fun for all ages; could serve as an introduction to sightseeing the city, or the one thing to do if you... More

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!
