Great experience. Brilliant guide with a great general knowledge and engaging personality. I have done Viator tours before and generally have a very good experience, but this one was unique, largely because of the efforts of our guide who imbued very activity with energy and passion. I would recommend the experience highly.

Simply amazing! Our tour guide Eric took us through the history of early Viking life and how they used the rune stones to document events. As we drove around the countryside those stones appeared everywhere, on the sides of the road and even incorporated into the walls of buildings and walls! This then lead to a history lesson of the early church followed by the effects of the reformation. Throw a few kings in the mix, a plague, some wars and you start to get a basic timeline of events in Sweden. It was well worth the time and I would highly recommend it even if you are not a history buff because you can't beat the beauty of the Swedish countryside!

It was great to get out of Stockholm to see more of the countryside. This was a very interesting field trip to see where the Viking's lived and where they left there mark.

Our guide was a local with exceptional knowledge, thank you Pieter.

This was an excellent tour. There was only 3 of us on the tour and our driver/guide, Urban was very entertaining and informative. He regaled us with stories and ancedotes on the way to the various sites. He would provide us with both an official version of events at the sites, but he would then add to it with his own thoughts and views and this was very interesting and added an extra touch of personalisation to the tour. To be honest, probably due to the very small size of the group, it really did not feel like a tour at all, but more like being taken round the local sites by a knowledgeable friend. The pace was just right and each of the sites visited was interesting and added something to the trip and your knowledge of Viking history. The stop at the farm to enjoy some coffee and cake before walking through the ruins was especially good as i was not expecting to enjoy such hospitality. Sigtuna is a vey nice little town, but maybe it is just a little bit too touristy, but sti very nice . All in all it was a really good tourand although it may seem quite expensive it really is wotrth the money. I just hope they keep the small group formula, as i don'tthink it would work nearly so well if it was scaled up to be a tour catering for a full bus load of passengers as you would miss that personal touch that really makes this tour

My wife and I had a great time on this trip. Our guide was very knowledgable and also very funny. We enjoyed all of the stops along the tour and would definitely recommend this tour to others. The fact that it is only small groups makes for a much more personal and enjoyable experience.

Very, very informative with a wonderful tour leader. The only suggestion I have is that a map be distributed so we know where sites that are not in Sigtuna and Uppsala are located (eg, runes and mounds).
