Traveling through time in a Volvo PV and learning more about Volvo, Sweden and of course Goteborg. The guide is excellent and funny at the dame time. We got a great sense of the city, saw all the major sites and enjoyed driving around ourselves in these lovely restores cars. A visit to Goteborg cannot be complete without this tour

Thank you for your nice review! We put a lot of effort into keeping the old cars in good shape. I know our guide Peter will be happy to read this! More

We chose to have the guide in the car with us as I didn't want to worry about driving while sight seeing. For us this was a great choice. We did this the day before we left and I wish we could have done it sooner. Many of the facts that were given and the places that were pointed out... More

The guide driving the first car (that we had to follow) has a great character! He is completely in style of the classic Volvo's time. Besides being very funny, he also has a lot of knowledge on Volvo, architecture around the city and the history of Gothenburg. Also, the car (in our case a Volvo PV544) drives quite well. Really...

A great way to see Gothenburg! We were only staying a couple of days, and this tour gave us a chance to visit parts of town we would never have seen otherwise. The car was fantastic to drive (watch out for the trams!), and the commentary from our guide was very informative. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting... More

I booked this tour as a surprise for my husband and he loved it. It was good fun and very informative. If you don't want to drive you can book the guides car which means you are also at the front. The cars are in excellent condition and surprisingly comfy. Highly recommend.

What a good tour! We were guided and looked after by Peter who introduced us to five classic Volvos, all lovingly restored, which we drove in stately fashion in convoy around Gothenburg. He was entertaining, suitably quirky, knowledgeable and a complete enthusiast. Driving the cars was an event in itself, around the carefully chosen route.

TL;DR: check out my vlog: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uR_cS_FiNDQ This was so much fun! A little pricey, 490kr for two, we're young adults so to us it is haha. But I have to say I was impressed. They don't really have an English guide, but because we were driving with the guide, we got a 'private' and intimate time with the guide speaking... More

I had looked at the website last year but assumed it was a short tour that would be extremely expensive. I was wrong on both counts; it was a very comprehensive tour round most of Gothenburg's quartets which came into being or were prosperous in the time of the PV444 & PV544 (1945-1965 Volvo cars) production. It threw many parts... More
