We had the all inclusive 45+ pass for 3 days and since we were in Stockholm in early October we were able to take full advantage of it. Even if some seasonal attractions were no longer bookable, we were able to save a lot compared to regular admissions. On the other hand, we never had longer waiting times or crowded activities. In combination with the weekly ticket from SL (local public transport) brilliant and highly recommended.

Very good and digital card, you do not need to go to exchange it at any meeting point and it offers free tickets. The only bad thing is that there are not so many museums available and some important museums like the Historiska Museet or the ABBA Museum are not included. It was also not clear to me how to use it for transport.

Very informative and fun day seeing a lot of great sites. Our guide Calle was very engaging and had great answers to all of our questions. I would recommend anyone wanting to see historical Viking sites to take this tour.

Friendly and informative. Our group was so nice and we made new friends while seeing some of the area outside of Stockholm.

Calle was awesome!! Very informative, engaging, funny and knowledgable.
