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're 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.

I can highly recommend this tour! Very fun and entertaining, especially Jasper the tour guide and Oskar the "Captain" Hats off to those fellas, they were great! 10 out of 10! Money very well spent! (Speaking of money, I would really liked to have shown my appreciation for them at the end of the tour however I didn't have any 'real' money with me, so a tip for anyone taking this tour, have some cash with you if you want to show your appreciation for what they do and how well they do it!)

Pleasant and entertaining guiding, where the ride into the water and the boat ride are probably the preserve for small children. I think it is wise to wait with the tour until the children are old enough that they can take in information from the guide even during the city tour. My grandchildren are aged 7-13. It has been to the satisfaction of them and us elders

Great fun activity - super fun enthusiastic knowledgeable guide, lots of laughs! Calm and safe driver. Surprise moment when the bus became a boat was super! The excursion could easily have been a little longer - in any case it cost almost SEK 300 per person - and there is much more to tell about Gothenburg.
