Top Tip - Entry for free once you have a Gothenburg City Card. We really enjoyed our 50 minute guided tour of Gothenburg - the young lady guide was quite humorous and ironic about the quirky aspects of Gothenburg! We moved out of the canal area and it did become more choppy and as we were seated at the front... More

Hy was good guide, much more knowledge and entertaining than the hop-on bus. Captain had to say several times to not touch bridges, towards the end she mentioned they a full of rat poo, she probably should have said that at the beginning.

The Paddan boat tour is an open top boat from near Kungsportsplatsen. You can buy tickets, 170 krona pp, at the dockside cabin but they only take cards no cash. For cash tickets go to the 7 eleven opposite and then queue up to transfer this to a timed departure. Also beware we had trouble using our US credit card... More

Did a afternoon trip with Paddan and it exceeded my expectations. Very funny and informative trip around the canals. Even if this is my hometown I haven't done it before (and have missed out on great historical guidance)

On our 2nd day in town we decided to take this tour as we had seen lots of people on the boats while walking around. We thought it was going to be just a ride around the canals, but we were pleasantly surprised when we were also taken out to the harbor. The guide gave enough historic information to make... More

I was fortunate to enjoy this trip on a pleasant Saturday morning, would not have enjoyed it as much in the rain! The tour guide (Hannah) was incredible- very informative with all of the information she shared of the various tourist spots, and a comedy genius too. Remarkable when all jokes were told in two languages and still remained funny.... More

Thank you so much for the feedback on the Paddan tour. I've forwarded your comment about Hanna and im sure she will be happy to hear it! The nice weather is always a plus to make the tour a little bit nicer though the tipical Gothenburg rainy weather isn't always bad either. Thank you again and have a great day!... More

We did not choose best time for the city visit (Final Gothia Cup and Bruce Springsteens Concert) but also when there were a lot of people everywhere was the boat trip perfect. Its really nice made, funny (maybe just our guide was funny), interesting and when you catch so nice weather as we - then it is just perfect :).

We did the boat and bus tour. The boat tour had a guide where the bus had a recorded program in several languages. If you had time to only do one, we recommend the boat tour. Our guide Hannah was fantastic!

It was a spontaneous decision to see Gothenburg by boat and I was so glad I did it. It was a different approach in seeing Gothenburg and it was really nice to have a guide pointing out the sights and explained a bit about the background/ history. The wind was a bit strong in the middle of the trip and... More

Great way to see Gothenburg. You can buy an all day pass and hop on and off the boats as they come buy each stop. The tour guide was informative about the area.
