This was a perfect tour! Be sure to do this early on in your trip so you can have a general idea of where everything is. It was a perfect balance of sight-seeing and physical activity. The bikes were light-weight and great! Its so much better than a walking tour. You cover a much larger area in a much shorter time in a cooler way.

Great tour of the sights of Stockholm. Our guide, Sarah, competently provided us with interesting information about the city. She was warm, personable and open-minded and, thanks to her knowledge, was able to answer many questions. Great tour with a competent and cordial guide.

Our guide was super nice and we've learned a lot about the city! Thank you so much for this excellent experience. I would absolutely recommend it to everyone who visits Stockholm.

Super organized, despite deadline, there were plenty of alternatives. Very informative and we have seen Stockholm from another side!

Small group of 4 people. Good explanation in English. Great wooden bikes.
