It was a great day out on the boat. The boat was equipped with rain gear so that we were able to enjoy the trip even when it was raining. When the sun came out we had lunch on the boat. All of us were busy helping with the sailing. Great experience.
Amazing- Martin was a superb host/yachtsman- so accommodating, kind-hearted and knowledgeable. We loved being able to participate in sailing and in the scenic beauty of the archipelagos.
Great day out on the boat and friendly captain. Enjoyed it immensely and my kids and hubby were crazy enough to go for a swim. Only problem was with the meet up. we received conflicting information from Viator as the captain had left the marina and had to come back especially for us. It wasn't very clear where to get the ferry from in stockholm either and then my phone decided not to have any service so it is a miracle we actually got to enjoy this wonderful day.
I absolutely loved this tour! Häkon and Lisa were fantastic hosts. The lunch was great and the small group numbers meant that we could decide what we wanted to do and share all the food easily. We ended up going from Vaxholm to Sandhamn so ask if that's what you want to do. A fantastic day!
Ralph and his wife were absolutely fantastic. Could not more-highly recommend this trip.
We went in late June so it was warm. This is highly recommended. It was a very lazy day, just sailing around the islands. Our skipper was very pleasant, a good sailor and lunch was excellent.
If you like the outdoors then do this. Swimming optional as too cold for us.
We spent a wonderful day on the sailing boat with Erik and Susan. Erik is a great skipper and Susan a great cook. We were able to sail ourselves under Eriks supervision and for lunch we stopped in a nice area in the middle of the "Schären-islands" for eating and swimming. This was one of the best days I had during my one week sweden holiday! I recommend this trip to all! Thanks a lot!
This was my first trip to Stockholm so my expectations were very high, given all I'd heard. This tour totally over exceeded my expectations, and the couple that owned and operated the sail boat were extremely passionate, and flexible throughout the day. We loved their hospitability, and of course the typical Swedish meal we shared with them on the boat. A great sight of a major portion of the Archipelego, where they show you on the map and you can choose where to go. We were lucky the wind worked in our favor and were able to sail most of the journey. We loved that we helped with the sailing as well, so we did not only see amazing scenery, we were able to learn sailing at the same time. They are also happy to stop at any island you may want to visit, we stopped at one and took a beautiful walk, then continued our journey. I would definitely do this again on my next trip!
Amiable captain, lovely weather. Quite an enjoyable time that was like my previous experience in Stockholm staying with Swedish friends and visiting in the Archipelago. A little pricey but worth it as my daughter had a blast steering the boat as we tacked in the gentle breezes.
Great host and itinerary. It was unlucky that there was hardly any wind for sailing that day.
We had a great time with our boat captain. For us it may have been a little more hands on than we expected but it wasn't a problem as there were others who really wanted to learn or help sail. It was a beautiful day and the trip was lovely - maybe an hour too long but again we thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was OK. I thought it was very expensive for the actual experience itself, but I guess that's the nature of sailing around in somebody's private boat. I think the company which runs the holiday has several different private boat owners who run the day, so you get whichever boat owner has been allocated for that day. I quite enjoyed it as I like being on water, but might try just getting the ferry-hopping in the archipelago next time. Note: Whatever the weather before you get on the boat, you should be prepared for very stong sun, very strong wind, and cold.
