The Viking Tour was really interesting, especially as our guide - Quentin from France - was so passionate and knowledgeable about the subject. We adapted around some bad weather, and he was extremely accommodating when dropping us off at destinations of our choice. I especially enjoys Sigtuna. It's a bit touristy, but if you walk down to the lake, it is very beautiful and peaceful.

Jonathan and Lena-Marie were both great guides and very informative about Viking culture. All of the stops were very scenic, especially Sigtuna which was a great time to walk around and explore. Would definitely recommend this tour!

An absolutely sensational tour! Nadia our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and we all had a terrific time on the tour. Highly recommend to anyone considering doing this tour, it is well worth it!
