Our guide was terrific. We spent time at the Nobel Museum, but the greatest thing we did was see the Wasa Museum. This was utterly fantastic!
My wife and I were the only two on this tour, so it was private and the tour guide shared a lot of commentary about Swedish life that we otherwise might not have heard. The Nobel Museum is not to be missed.
I signed up for the trip assuming it would be mostly about Alfred Nobel's life in Stockholm. I was in town on a grant to explore Nobel's history. It ended up being a tour of Stockholm that ended at the Nobel Museum. I think Nobel was mentioned 2 other times (when showing us City Hall and when driving by what used to be his labs, but other than that, the tour was mainly just a Stockholm City Tour. I had been sick for 3 of the 5 days I had in Stockholm, so taking this tour on the last day of my visit was OK, given how much I hadn't already done on my own when I was sick. Had I been able to explore on my own, this tour would have been a repeat of what I had already done. I suggest marketing this as a tour that explores Stockholm and ends at the Nobel Museum to be more clear to Nobel history buffs. It would be good for people to take this tour on their very first day in Stockholm to get them oriented and to help them decide what they wanted to do in more detail on their own.
The tour guide was knowledgable and he took us to some nice views that we would not have found on our own, so that was great. A few more stops in the 2nd half of the tour would have been helpful to those who get a little carsick or are still a bit jet-lagged. We had several places to get out and walk around in the first hour but then none in the second hour.
This was more of a tour around the city and then they dropped us of by the Nobel museum but didn't actually get you in the museum nor explained. The tour ended there but we had to pat our museum entrance. We were not taken to the place where the awards were given out.
