Thanks for your feedback. It certainly is a wonderful way to experience the city. As you say, in windy weather it may splash a little in the harbor area. Hopefully you did not get too wet! You are always welcome back! /Annika More

A great boat tour that gives views of Gothenburg from another perspective. It takes you round all the canals throughout the city. Excellent guides, and you can have it in English. Goes under some very low bridges which involves getting off your seats and crouching on the floor of the boat. But it is BEST in summer!

A good way to start your trip to explore the city. When the gentleman sells the tickets asks: are you a student? And i was: yes -looking for my student id- he replies: okay, no worries I believe you. That kept going on and on during my entire time in Sweden. People are very kind, friendly and helpful. And everyone... More

We had never tried these boats and went on a shorter trip (20-30minutes) through the canal and to the other side bank (Eriksberg). This was a trip that was a collaboration between a festival/fair held there and Stromma-Paddan compnay during this event. It seemed like a publicity opportunity for the boats. First of all - we were all nicely greeted... More
