Cathrin is very nice, passionat and competent. But for my me she focused too much on history and not enough on the build, architecture of building by pointing out the styles. We walked without being encouraged to look up and at things. The rest was very nice.
Starting in the cozy, quaint confines of the classic Östermalmshallen, the old market hall of Stockholm, you’ll enjoy samples of local cheeses and meats, your first tastes on the tour.

In the very heart of the city you'll visit a local chocolate store, where the owners’ romantic story adds an even sweeter flavor to the locally made gourmet chocolate. Hötorgshallen, yet another of the city’s food markets, is also on the route. Stop for a chance to learn about the historical importance of the market and the shops,...
The tour, the guide and the food were all very good. I wish there could have been a sweet and a savoury option for the whole tour as I'm not much of a sweet tooth. Also, there were less stops due to the pandemic, it would probably be even better if we had stopped at more places. Overall, good experience although a bit pricey

Good experience and very informative. My suggestion would be to have a microphone or something so that people at the back of the vehicle can hear the guide, especially if people in the front of the vehicle are talking.

Ride through the maze of streets of Stockholm’s Old Town to the Royal Castle on this 2-hour Segway tour. Join a shared or private tour, according to your preferences.

Later, walls and other towers were added, and the site eventually became a royal palace, known as the 3 Crowns. Stockholm’s inner city comprises 14 islands. In the greater archipelago there ar...
Die Segwaytour war einfach großartig! Nach kurzer Einweisung und Überprüfung, ob wir auch sicher mit dem Segway umgehen können, ging es gleich los. Unser Führer war ein super Typ, der uns sehr unterhaltsam viel Information und Geschichten über die Stadt erzählt hat. Wir haben so viel in den zwei Stunden gesehen, und die Zeit verging viel zu schnell.

The dancers and singers are very good, very funny show and some songs touch the heart !! Finding the palace is not difficult, the aperitif is well served and good. As already specified by the others, the guys on the show deserve the biggest stage !! I recommend to everyone !!
Second visit to St. Petersburg and second visit to the show. Will always come along to experience this entertainment whenever I return providing J don’t have to queue up again to obtain a paper ticket when I’ve got one downloaded on my mobile app. Ridiculous.
Very nice show. The snack was light but correct. There is no signage for the palace. If you can't read Cyrillic. even with WAZE it was difficult to find. A passerby helped us.
Don’t miss this one! Ambience, fantastic performance and informative little tour. Highly recommended.
Varied show so you don't get bored. Beautiful costumes of good dancers, singers and musicians.
