The pass paid off for us. The redemption worked perfectly for the various attractions. The stops were easy to find. The staff at Stromma Ticket Shop were very friendly. For tours, be at the ticket booth (9:00 a.m.) in good time...otherwise you will have to wait in line for a long time! + easy to use + good value for money + stops easy to find + friendly staff - ABBA, Vrack Museum and entry to Drottingholm Castle not included - Hop on hop off journey times could be longer

A pass that allows you to travel easily by bus and visit many interesting museums such as Vasa and Skansen. We did two very pleasant cruises (bridges and islands) and we used it for three days. Without the pass the activities and trips would have cost us double

We were indeed in the very best hands possible, our guide. Åsa, was most knowledgeable about every detail of Sigtuna and further delighted my daughter and I with a visit to Viby By. We are very pleased with every aspect of the tour.

Perfect, we just need to be more explicit about the departure of the Hopon Hopoff bus. It is possible to go wrong with the other company!

Works fine once you have found out who has the different tours, as there are several providers. Can be highly recommended.
