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.

Once in a lifetime experience. Passionate tour guide. Well experienced driver. The commentary was spoken in english/swedish. So, you get lost in between unless you speak/understand both languages. Amazing transformation from bus to boat. I still can’t get over it. If you’re looking for something fun/unique to do, might as well do it with Volvo made Lol!

A nice, small city tour with all the important stations in Gothenburg and of course the highlight with the trip into the water, where the bus then becomes a boat. A good alternative to walking with lots of smaller information about different personalities and places in the city. Warm clothing is important as it is a bit cooler in February and the bus is a bit drafty. The tour was scheduled in English but ended up being half Swedish, half English. It is definitely worth it.

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.
