A nice tour of one of the 14 islands in Stockholm. Lovely views, nice riverside ride, and a young guide who provided good information, though a bit low key on the enthusiasm side. Nonetheless, she was very knowledgeable and helpful. But the tour was overcrowded with about 30 riders. This biking operation evidently participates in the 'Stockholm Card' where tourists can purchase this one card for entry to many different venues. Presumably because the weather was so perfect (80 degrees F and perfectly clear) everyone decided to take a bike ride that day, July 18. We had pre- booked this in December of last year. They should limit total riders to the first 15 or 20 who reserve, not try to accommodate so many.
Our castle tour was fabulous! Our tour guide was knowledgable, helpful and really wanted to please. We learned so much about Denmark's history, castles, and royal family. Also, after the tour, we were guided to a very nice sweater shop instead of the usual souvenir shops. My only hesitation on giving it 5 stars is because no one contacted us in advance to let us know that the meeting place had been moved to a different location due to contstruction. It's a good thing we were early and were able to learn about the change.
