The classic city tour on the Paddan boats shows you the beauty of Gothenburg from a waterside perspective. The tour takes you under 20 bridges and out to the harbour.

This canal trip was included as part of our coach tour of Gothenberg. The boat is quite large and it became obvious during the cruise why it is completely open - we needed to lower our heads to safely get under some of the canal...More

My family of five really enjoyed this 50 minute boat trip through Gothenburg! Our guide was funny and the information really interesting. Very good for relaxing while enjoying the sights and learning new things after a long walk through the city :)

Spent 50 mins or so doing the Paddan boat tour, and although it was fine it wasn't overly interesting. There just isn't that much to see unfortunately. Our guide was very friendly though.

It's a nice way to relax and learn a little about the city. You duck under some bridges and pass the yard that built ships area and military ship no longer in use. You see the Gardens and the different neighborhoods from afar.

We live in Gothenburg, but still enjoy going for this tour on a sunny day. Every tour guide will have their own variant of the tour, where you will learn some things about the city. You will go under a lot of bridges, whereof one...More

Isn't it exciting when you approach the hairdresser? You never know exactly how low you have to go in order to make it to the other side without risking to get a new haircut. It's probably my favourite part when going on the Paddan-tour, glad...More

Thank you for your review, glad you enjoyed the tour! Paddan is probably the best way to get to see everything in Gothenburg, since we go in the canal but also out in the harbor like you mention. Have a great day,

Boats are much nicer than buses for city sightseeing! Guides are usually well prepared and - as expected in Gothenburg - witty. But maybe it is better to take the tour later in the summer. Some of the guides are not that knowledgeable or on...More

I highly recommend this tour. You get to see the city of Gothenburg from a new perspective. The guides are great. Me and My wife went with our kids, 6 and 9 and we all enjoyed it.

You can just head straight there and buy a ticket. If the weather is good I would say the canal is better as a starting point. You can easily walk there from the ferry terminal in five minutes.

Not sure why you're asking me about a walking tour as I give no indication of any such tour. I looked for free walking tours myself but couldn't find any in the city just paid tours.
