Full description
Discover Stockholm's old town and enjoy priority access to its Vasa Museum on a combined tour. In just 2.5 hours you’ll take in the city’s most popular sights. On your guided walk through the old town you’ll learn how and why the Nobel Prize came to be, and where the Royal Family actually lives. You guide will also tell you what the residents used to do with their garbage, how narrow the narrowest alley in Stockholm is, how many live in the old town, and what the cost of living is there. Next you’ll board a ferry to the island of Djurgården. Enjoy spectacular views of Stockholm from the water, and en route you'll come to understand why Stockholm is sometimes referred to as the Venice of the North. Visit the Vasa Museum and discover how a ship that spent 333 years on the bottom of the sea could be so well preserved, how many people died as the ship sank, who was punished for this failure, and how it was salvaged. Learn all this and more and have your questions answered during a tour of the Museum. Once your tour has finished, you’re welcome to stay on longer to check out the exhibitions and watch a film about the Vasa.

As a single tour a lot of money but worth every penny!

We chose a private guide as a group tour in English with 2 small children was out of the question. It's a lot of money (350 € for 2 adults) but it was worth every penny! Booking was straightforward and payment via PayPal was ok. Our guide Peter is Swedish with Austrian-Swedish roots and received us very friendly. He was very responsive to us and also explained patiently and in detail for the boys (4 & 6 years). After the old town tour with lots of information about what else you can do in Stockholm, we took the ferry to Mach Vasa Museum and were able to just pass a queue of at least 80m - an absolute plus! The private tour of the museum was also very good and there were no questions left from the children or from us. All in all a very, very successful day. Many thanks to our guide Peter!

Great!

Our guide, CAROLINE, was outstanding! She was prompt, personable, knowledgeable...and she spoke excellent English. Walking the streets of Stockholm and learning the background/history of all around us was wonderful...and made the time seem to really fly! The boat ride over to the island and the Vasa Museum were perfect (and so was the weather!). Don’t miss this guided tour!
