Starting at the City Hall in central Stockholm, this private 5-hour walking tour takes in the development of Sweden and Stockholm, from the Ice Age some 10,000 years ago right up to the present day.
As you walk along the waterfront and through the narrow alleys of the beautiful Old Town, Gamla Stan, you’ll get acquainted with the Vikings and kings and queens from the past, but will also touch on contemporary issues affecting Stockholm and the rest of Sweden. This is one of the most picturesque parts of the city, with history all around.
After a brief ferry ride, the walking tour ends at the Vasa Museum in Djurgården, which is home to a magnificently well-preserved wooden ship. Here, your guide will sum up Sweden’s 17th Century greatness in the shadow of the gigantic man-of-war, the Vasa.
This tour is on foot, partly on cobbled streets, and so is not suitable for clients with limited mobility. There’s a single fee for the tour regardless of the group size (maximum 10 participants per tour).
Exclusions: Entry fees for the City Hall and the Vasa Museum are not included. Participants also need to pay for local ferry transport between Gamla Stan and Djurgården. Gratuities (optional) are not included.
