This was a great tour! We happened to take this tour on a rainy day (one of only a couple rainy days on our whole trip), but the weather made the tour even more dramatic. I highly recommend this tour!!
Very interesting trip, only 2 of us with the drive/guide in a new Mercedes. Our guide Lars is very knowledgeble and has great humor sense! I learned a lot about the Viking people and their history that could help me clear all Hollywood myths! Beautiful landscapes and Lars stopped for us taking photos any time we asked. I just thought the introduction at each Viking ruin could be more brief so we could had time to visit the Viking museum in the excavation site in Upsala before closing time at 4 p.m. When I booked this tour via viator, there were only tour on Sunday and Monday but Lars told me his company offers this tour every day with free pick up and drop off at the place you request. Also I think this kind of tour is for people who interested in culture and histories and nature, so children or people who expect to see Viking ship or hollywood-styled Viking stories may feel it quite boring. For me, this my most favorite tour in Northern Europe and it worths every cent.
Excellent trip and the tour guide was fantastic. We were also very pleased to see the beautiful countryside of Sweden.
I recommend this tour, especially that I had the chance to be guided by an excellent person whose knowledge of Swedish history was fabulous, Mr. Martensson Per Gunnar Stefan.
Awesome! while i am no scholar, i know A LOT about norse mythology and viking history, yet there was really A LOT to learn on this trip! the guide was very knowledgable and friendly. If you're considering this, go ahead! you wont regret it! thanks again!
Loved it! Great seeing so much of the countryside and learned a great deal. Wonderful trip!
No complaints at all. Our guide Lars was prompt, helpful, polite and very knowedgeable. We had considered hiring a car and visiting sites ourselves, but Lars took us to places which we would have never have found by ourselves. A good way to end a trip.
Even on a rainy day, an enjoyable and informative tour. Good way to take in the countryside, see Sigtuna and Old Uppsala, have coffee and cake at a working farm, and of course view historic runes and churches. Out guide, Urban, is a good man - not only knowledgeable,
he mailed my cell phone which I left in the van to our hotel in Oslo at his own expense trusting me to reimburse him.
Great experience. I was nervous because I had not used Viator before but the process was simple. Make sure you call ahead to schedule a hotel pick-up. The tour was great.
Excellent tour operator and guide.
Excellent, would recommend to anybody and everybody. Guide was very knowledgeable and was able to tie in modern facts about Sweden and the region. You can tell that he has a passion for what he is talking about and wants to share.
Excellent guide and Tour. A total of 5 people on this small group tour. One important Viking site is hidden by a cow pasture, making it difficult to find on your own.
This was an amazing day. Only 4 of us on the tour, we were entertained and informed by the wonderful driver/guide. Highly recommend it even to those not particularly interested in the details of the Vikings. It takes you through some beautiful countryside and small towns
Wonderful trip with the best tour guide. In addition, this was more than Viking History, more like Viking and History. Great experience.
Great trip, very nice and knowledgeable guide a lot of interesting information. I recommend this trip to all who really interested in vikings, where did the come from, how they lived, about their culture and traditions, not just want to see swords, ships and helmets.
Excellent Tour. Steinthorn is an incredible person and highly educated. The tour was personalized. Viking history is amazing, and you'll realized that it's not the same story that we all know.
If your @ Stockholm, this is a must!
Wounderful trip. we have learnt so much about the Vickings and the guide was amazing! Never seen so much snow, so better cover up, but it's defenitely worthwhile.
I had a very enjoyable day in the snowy Swedish countryside. The very friendly guide provided extensive commentary on many interesting locations, and we had a great lunch in a lovely village. I strongly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see more of this nice country. Thankyou indeed from Australia!
