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.

At least once in your life you need to take "Paddan" even if you are a tourist or if you live in Gothenburg. Maybe not so fun on a rainy day but when it's sunny it's perfect.

Hi. We will be in Gothenburg on Aug 7th ( Sunday) Do you provide "free" walking tour based on tips or for a set fee only? If you do, what time are either to walking tour? Also where do we meet? If there is a set fee, what is the cost? Thank you. Looking forward to obtain information for our trip planning.

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.
