Join in on a guided tour in the Swedish people’s car; the Volvo PV 444/544. Have you ever dreamed of driving a stylish old Volvo? Perhaps you used to own one, went on holiday in the back seat as a child or just quite simply like the look of these squat little cars?
The Volvo PV 444/544, manufactured between 1947 and 1965, was the car that put Sweden on the road. The car was built in Gothenburg in a period when the city was growing very quickly. 440,000 cars were manufactured, and there are still a few left today.
Time Travel Sightseeing Göteborg
Our tours start from the Waterfront Hotel at Klippan and take you on an hour and a half’s entertaining and interesting trip through time in Gothenburg. Our guides provide you with glimpses of the period 1950-1970, but also with insights into the modern day.
We travel together. Our entertaining guide travels at the front of the column, with microphone at the ready, followed by all the other cars in a neat line.
Orders and payment
Send an e-mail to email@example.com and state how many will be in your group, together with the desired date and time. We will come back to you within 24 hours with confirmation, together with payment instructions. In general we require advance payment. The order is binding when we have received the payment. There will be no repayment following cancellation, unless we can resell the tickets.
If your desired date is less than three days ahead, please ring to book on +46 (0) 31 – 720 22 00.
You can also make an order without a specific date, as a gift for someone who would like a special experience rather than a gold watch!
At least one person in each car must have a valid driving licence. If several people want to drive, they should all bring their driving licences. Driving licences will be checked before departure. If you don’t have a driving licence, book a place in the guide car.
The vehicles are fully insured. If you as a driver are responsible for damage, you pay an excess of SEK 2000.
The guided tour takes place in Swedish unless otherwise specified when booking (the alternative language is English).
Be at the departure location in good time; 15-20 minutes before departure.
You can hire booster seats for older children who want to come along on the trip. The cars are equipped with four seatbelts of classic car standard (not inertia reel type).
All trips start and end at the Hotel Waterfront Göteborg. You can dine at the Waterfront Restaurant, which is open every day until midnight. To reserve a table please call +46 (0)31-7202220. Parking is available in front of the hotel.
This is a collaboration with the Hotel Waterfront Göteborg where the cars are garaged and carefully looked after.
