My boyfriend and I loved this tour because it was relaxed, fun and interactive in that you have to tilt to avoid the low bridges! Of course this tour is better when it's sunny outside but to be honest, when we went, it was raining and very windy--it did not affect us at all! The Paddan Tour takes roughly an... More

Very well organised operation. Great staff. The only way to appreciate Gothenburg. I can also recommend the restaurant boat.

A very nice 50 minutes onboard to see the town and hear about history of Gothenburg and a bit of today as well.

Pleasant way to spend an hour, seeing the city from a different viewpoint. If you have been walking round the town it makes a nice rest for a while before you go off to do more shopping.

This is a great way to see Gothenburg. The low boats go both in the canals as well as in the harbour. Of course it is best when the weather is nice. If you don't like the history part you can just enjoy sun and water. Usually the guides are knowlegdeable and fun to listen to. This is something even... More

Great boat trip with good information. Fun for the whole family but is best when the weather is good. Takes 50 minutes. With the Gjøteborg card you don't have to pay extra for this trip.

This should be the first thing you do in Gothenburg. The guided tour takes you through the canals or moat of the city to the harbor. You go under low bridges and get fun information about the city. Buy this tour first before any other boat tours because you get a 30% discount on other tours.

A must do in Gothenburg. The bridges are low and fun, and in the harbour you'll get soaked!! But it all adds to the enjoyment. Kids are given life jackets so everyone is safe and the trip takes in all the Gothenburg sights.

I was told by a friend in California not to miss this and they were correct. Large comfortable boats with competent crews. They gave the TOUR in Swedish and English. The hop-on, hop-off ability was fun.

It was fun but rather wet if you sit at the side. Informative and the guide was very open to questions. She tried to be humourous but most of the crowd didn't get it.
