Gothenburg: Land & Water Amphibious Bus Sightseeing Tour

1. Gothenburg: Land & Water Amphibious Bus Sightseeing Tour

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 city of Prague was founded in the 14th century by the Czech king and Roman Emperor Charles IV.

What a beautiful city

This is truly a beautiful place. It is a good stroll through the city so comfortable shoes are a must. The moser factory tour was not something that I would do again. It was 100 degrees inside and I was not able to finish the tour. It was with people that spoke three languages so having it translated in 100 degree room with 20 people did not work well for me and my daughter. I loved the tour of the city and enjoyed seeing a bit of the countryside.

It's a shame that the tour only runs at one hour intervals.
