What people are saying about Gamla Stan

Was a great tour all round. Super warm team and a consistently good-humoured tour guide. Saw a lot of the city and had a nice "fika" in the kayaks. Only a second pair of gloves would have been good, as they got wet and therefore very cold towards the end.

Very nice tour of the old town and a bit along the water. Our guide Gina was very nice and the instruction was comprehensive, even for beginners. It does take a bit of practice, even for sporty people ;)

It was a great, cool, informative and fun tour. Gina, our guide, took great care of us and told us 7ns a lot of history and worth knowing. I would recommend the tour to anyone. Thanks

2 hours of continuous rain, but the guide Ms. Gina made us forget it with her knowledge and friendliness. Was really great.

Good and knowledgeable guide. Well-planned trip, overall satisfied
