We paid for the tour on the spot. However, if you intend to visit a few sights, it makes sense to get the Gothenburg City Pass which includes a free ride for the Paddan. The open boat tour brought us around the charming city. We...More

Mind your head! This trip is fabulous for those who aren't in Gothenburg for long and want to see the sights easily. The bridges are very cool and having to duck under them is great fun!

I really enjoyed this bilingual boat tour of Gothenburg. Our guide was very funny and good humored and taught us fun facts about the beautiful city. The water was choppy but the skilled driver kept us safe and comfortable. Also I enjoyed the ABBA music!

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.
