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.

Cheerful boat guide explained the city and its history and architecture quite well as we travelled through the canals and port. If it's a cold day out, bundle up appropriately as it's open-top (although it's likely closed top if it's bad weather). You may get some splashes in the harbour.

I went on the Paddan tour with my grandmother. She had been with her school class in Gothenburg 70 years ago and the thing she remembered the most was the Paddan Tour. So we decided to go again! She loved it and so did I! Weather was typically Gothenburg so sunny in the beginning, rain and wind in the middle... More

We were visiting friends/family in Onsala and went to Gothenburg for the day. We were treated to a boat tour of the city in the canal system. It was great for historical information and a very interesting tour. Be careful that you "book" the English speaking tour.

Paddan is a institution. The name paddan is translated into Toad. The boat tour that all respectable people from Gothenburg has taken at least once or twice in their life is a institution. Starting from the middle of the city it gives you a on the water tour of Gothenburg and information that will make your visit a little better.... More
