Sweden’s second city
Göteborg Walking Tours has the goal to spread local culture and history to travelers all kinds and financial opportunities! Be part of our tours to experience the second city of Sweden with all it’s quirky secrets and unique places!
The main focus of Göteborg Walking Tours is in offering free walking tours! A concept, that is quite spread by now worldwide. This means, that everyone can simply join the offered tours and enjoy! The idea is to tip our tour guides for their work – if you liked the tour obviously. This way, every travelers budget can take part in walking tours and learn more about the place!
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Gothenburg has a history dating back much longer than the official founding date of the city back in 1621.
It’s a place where ideas meet people with a “let’s do this”-mentality. It’s a place where sustainability meets ambition. It’s a place that screams inclusiveness, no matter of your background.
We want to bring people together, give them a glimpse of the history and let them explore why Gothenburg is more than just another city.
All of our free tours are available in English language only!
These tours are free, based on the popular concept of free walking tours found all around the world. This means, simply join the tour and if you liked it, you are free to tip’ the tour-guide depending on how much you think the tour was worth. No risk for you, and we will make extra sure that you will enjoy your time! Otherwise, we also love reviews on TripAdvisor, Google Maps or Facebook as forms of gratitude!
‘you can tip the guide cashless, it’s Sweden after all.
Please keep in mind that the tour offer is subject to change.
