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.

Hello. We will be arriving in Goteborg on Aug 7th (Sunday) from a cruise (Holland America) from 11 am to 10 pm. Would you tell us the best way to get from the cruise terminal to this hop-on and off guided canal tour? Is there a specific departure time that would accommodate 4 adults in our group? Would we be able to purchase this tour at the ticket office instead of on line? Would the cost be the same as advertised online? thank you. Also do you also offer a combined hop on hop off boat and bus tour? If you do, how much is the combination tour?

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.

La barcaza se coge en Kungsportsplatsen, junto al puente. Respecto del tranvía, observa porque mucha gente sube y baja y no paga, y no pasa nada. Se puede pagar en metálico o con tarjeta.
