To explore a new city from the water side gives the chance for a lot of different views. To do this by kayak adds the exercise point. Our tour was with Pete who managed to organise this sportive activity very well and safe so that everyone had an enjoyable afternoon. At several points of interest, e.g. the Stockholm City Hall, he provided us with funny stories and special information about the city. I would recommend such a tour to anyone who wants to do more to get to know new places.

We had a wonderful time! Our guide Jasper was very friendly, knowledgeable and made sure everyone on the tour was okay. He told us some really interesting stories about Stockholm and we got to see the city from a very unique angle. He even took photos for us! I would really recommend this tour, we're so glad we did it. For those worried about getting wet or being too tired, the tour is easy and you stay dry - you are given protective gear from the water and you are in a 2 person kayak so less effort required.

It was a super fun experience with wonderful guide Tess (aka Theresa) and a great group of people. My arms were nearly dropping off by the end so I was glad I hadn't chosen the full-day kayaking tour but it was more than worth it. The sun shone and I was a very happy bunny. Thanks again Tess!
