Full description
Experience sightseeing with a splash during an amphibious bus tour of Gothenburg. Start the tour at Stora Teatern - a musical and a theater building in the city center - where you will board the bus. Then, set off through central Gothenburg passing sights like Avenyn, Poseidon, Liseberg, Ullevi, and the Fish Church. As the surface beneath changes, the real fun begins and it is time for the bus to get wet. Hold on to your phones and cameras and prepare for some butterflies in your stomach as the 10-ton bus transforms into an amphibious boat and enters the river. Listen as the music gets louder and a big splash of water hits the windscreen. Before you know it, you are floating. After a couple of minutes of cruising on the water, the guide will give some additional info about how the bus works. From the water, get a great view of the city and see big ships leaving and entering the city. After about 20 minutes in the water, head back to the pickup point passing some more incredible sights on the way.

The tour is really great, I can only recommend it. I am the 1st rating only because get your guide only offers it on the 2nd day. The Ocean Bus is special. Oskar and his female guide are in a really good mood and try to create a mood with a musical frame on board.

Super-fan tour, especially thanks to the enthusiasm of the guide and the use of music in between explanations. The water trip is the highlight, just don't expect stunning views from the canal - it's mostly an industrial and commercial area. The only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 is that the tour is bilingual in Swedish and English, but a few sentences here and there were Swedish only. Mostly jokes and music references I think, but will never know.

This was really fun! Mimi and Oskar are really entertaining, like guides with a stand-up comedian soul. Sounded like there was a lot of fun stuff in the Swedish stories, wish a bit more of that had been in English too. :) Thanks a lot for an awesome time! Cheers.
