What You Can Expect
Make your way to Stortorget, Stockholm's oldest town square, in Gamla Stan (Old Town) to meet your local guide.
Stroll the cobblestone streets and learn about Birger Jarl, the man who founded the city of Stockholm in 1250. Walk through narrow passageways and streets built for horses, not cars, on your way to check out the Storkyrkan (Coronation Church). Admire the statue of St George and the Dragon that stands inside the brick Gothic cathedral.
Make your way to Kungliga Slottet, or the Royal Palace, to see the stately architecture and palace guards that surround the place that Stockholm's Royal family calls home.
Hop on a ferry for the 10-minute ride to Djurgården, a small island where the Vasa Museum stands. Take a half-hour tour that shows you the highlights of the ancient ship, sunk in the waters off Stockholm in 1628 during its maiden voyage. Explore the ship itself, watch a short film in the museum and then enjoy a coffee in the restaurant.
Finish your tour at the Vasa Museum, where you can continue exploring on your own.
The tour is definitely worth it. Katrina was great and very friendly. You get to skip the queue in the Vasa Museum, which is great. So much history and lovely places to get to know in Stockholm. 100 recommended.

This walking tour was excellent. The description on Viator says that it is a two-hour walking tour of both Gamla Stan and the Vasa Museum, however this tour really takes up most of your day. We walked around Gamla Stan for about 75 minutes and then took a ferry to Djurgarden island. By the time we arrived at the Vasa Museum, it was close to noon. The friendly guide then gave us a 30 minute overview of the ship. At about 12:30pm, our guide left the group. I then stayed an additional two hours at the museum. You could easily spend a full day there. There are films to watch and seven floors of exhibits to read. Because the tour price included admission to the museum and the ferry ride, it was good value. I would not do the tour unless I planned to spend more time at the museum.
A great half-day tour with a great guide, Samuel, who was a wealth of information and offered many wonderful insights about both the city and country in general along the way. This tour is capped off with a ferry ride to the Vasa Museum which is truly a spectacular sight to be seen. Highly recommend!

This worked out so well because we ended up being just the two of us with Samuel! We had our own personal tour! We thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour with him which covered the best of the city within the time we had available. He was very personable with excellent english and a good sense of humor. The Vasa museum was so interesting along with the quaint streets of the old town. We would recommend this to anyone with limited time in Stockholm.
Really a lot of fun. Marcia did a terrific job. Very personable, and knowledgable. Answered all our questions. Even sang Swedish folk songs!
The guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining as well.
This was the best way to be introduced to Stockholm. Luisa, our guide, was friendly, articulate and well-versed in conveying the history and culture of the area. The elements of the tour were well-chosen, introducing us to the historial city, taking a ferry ride and vistiing the excellent Vasa Museum. We felt quite confident about navigating the area later. We'd do it all again!
You get to know a lot about the old city from the guide. It would take days to figure out those stuff :)
Saskia was EXCELLENT - young , very educated, very pleasant. Knew answers to every question, very well informed. Learn a lot from her, and spent terrific time . Excellent tour , worth every penny. Tourguide excellent. Strongly recommanded tour. MUST SEEN!
