What You Can Expect
Sweden, especially Stockholm, is known for its famous Viking history. Beginning in the 8th century, Swedish Vikings, known as the Rus', started traveling to several countries in the east and south, as far as Iraq. These explorers, warriors, merchants and pirates raided, plundered and settled in various areas of Europe, Asia and the North Atlantic until the 11th century. Your guide - dressed in a Viking costume - will show you the most important Stockholm sites all the while telling you stories about the Viking's pillaging, plundering and leadership during the Viking Age.
Walk with your guide along picturesque cobblestone streets through Stockholm's Old Town, Gamla Stan, lined with cozy cafés and full of rich history. You will have ample opportunities to take photographs of such attractions as the Royal Palace and the Swedish Parliament. You’ll also explore some of Stockholm's hidden spots off the beaten path before making your way back to your original departure point. You should not miss out on this tour if you want to explore Sweden's capital in a truly local fashion!
Loved the tour! Especially if you are traveling with kids!! We were a group of 5, two of which were 9 and 12. We all had a great time and learned a great deal about "old town" and how Vikings were involved with it. Tour a gives you a good senses to how old tow is laid out.
I can thoroughly recommend this tour as it was great fun and Bertha our guide was very informative. It was a bit of a shame for Bertha as we'd already been on the Ghost Walk and there is some duplication. However she adapted her tour very well and added quite a lot of extra info. We were also lucky in that we witnessed the changing of the guard at the royal palace.
