What You Can Expect

Stockholm City Walking Tour Including the Vasa Museum

Visit the Vasa Museum on your Stockholm Walking Tour

Meet your guide at Stortorget, the main square in the heart of Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s gorgeous Old Town. Gamla Stan is a place brimming with history and your guide will regale you with tales about the people that once lived here -- like Birger Jarl, the city’s founder -- as you walk.

Amble through the zigzag of pretty streets, and see top Gamla Stan attractions like the Coronation Church, and the St George and the Dragon statue. Walk past Stockholm Royal Palace – the official residence of Sweden’s royal family – and pose for pictures against its majestic backdrop.

Leave the Old Town and cross over to Djurgården island on a 10-minute ferry ride, watching the sights of Gamla Stan slip from your view as you cruise through the water.

The island’s star attraction is the incredible Vasa Museum, home to a meticulously restored ship that lay underwater for over 300 years. See it next, and learn the story of the famous Vasa ship on a 30-minute tour of the museum. Marvel at features like her bronze cannon that would have made her a feared war ship, should she not have sank on her maiden voyage! Explore the ship itself, watch a short film in the museum and then enjoy a coffee in the restaurant.

Your tour finishes inside the Vasa Museum, and you can continue exploring independently if you wish.

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!

Tour was as described. Knowledgeable guide. Easy way to see Gamla Stan and then get over to the island to see the Vasa Museum.

The Vasa was definitely the highlight of the tour. Would suggest that the guide hold up a sign to identify themselves when meeting at the square.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2014

We had an enjoyable experience with our guide in Stockholm. He was friendly and was able to answer any questions we had. We had some trouble finding the Nobel House where we had to meet our quide since we could not read signs. Even though we did get there on time I would suggest some directions included with the voucher that you print our. This was our second time using Viator and I would use them again.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2013

Our walking tour was very interesting, going down little lanes and streets we would never have done on our own. Our guide was very interesting, and made the day fun. The ferry ride was good. The Vasa Museum is a must for all visitors. Would recommend this tour to anyone who likes to walk a bit, and hear stories about Stockholm you don't hear in a large group.
