What To Expect

Meet your local guide in Gamla Stan, Stockholm's old town, and set off on this walking tour of the city's oldest neighborhood. Wear sensible walking shoes suited for the cobblestone streets and bundle up; Stockholm's nights between November and March can be bitter. 

Walk down narrow alleyways and through tiny courtyards that most tourists and visitors never see. By the light of his lantern, your guide will entertain and horrify you with tales of poltergeists, plagues, public executions and murders. Experience the past brought back to life as you smell, taste and see what medieval Stockholm might have been like.

Traveller Tips

The only thing we didn't like is that the tour is cheaper if you pay cash at the beginning (it's 220 SEK) and it's more expensive if you book it online (290 SEK).
My only advise, is , go directly to the tour, it is cheaper than buying online.

A fun and entertaining evening!
Marianne_R, Aug 2022
A great evening of dark history! No ghosts, but great storytelling by Callum. He certainly knows how to engage the group. A interesting way to get more of Stockholm's history.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thank you! Glad you liked our dark history and guide.
Best tour guide EVER!
Emerson_H, Jul 2022
I have been on countless walking tours in many countries. This was hands down the best tour guide I have ever experienced! Not one moment was I disengaged. I held on to every word of each story and surprised over and over by her passion and enthusiasm! I would take this tour again and again and highly recommend!! Made SURE you book your tour with Myson (hope the spelling is correct) She is amazing and my favorite tour guide I’ve ever had.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you! So glad you liked our tour and guide (her name is Majsan, close enought ;-)
Tara_P, Jul 2022
Callum was awesome at telling all the stories. Thanks. I loved the audience participation and the walk was not strenuous at all.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you Tara_P!
If you do the ghost walk, ask for Cullum
Sophie_R, Jul 2022
It is really Cullum, who made it a great experience. He was perfect! The right mix of information, fun, suspense and excitement. He is a truly talented story teller.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you Sophie_R! Will ask for him next time ;-)

We laughed, we walked, we were spooked in wild ole Stockholm.
Denise_H, Jul 2022
Chris brought a great mixture of fun, humor, and fact to our ghostly tour. He was entertaining and historically informative. We would recommend this tour to visitors of Stockholm.
No ghosts but still fun.
Debby_M, Jul 2022
I’m hoping for eternal good luck! I have issues walking if group is moving to fast but I had no problems staying with the group.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you Debby_M! Glad you did not have to run fast ;-)
Fun and historic
Stephanie_C, Jul 2022
A lot of history with a fun twist of the macabre. Guide was great. Go a little early as it was difficult to find.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you! Be on time (or a little before) is great!
Fun tour!
Jennifer_C, Jul 2022

Thank you Emma_B!
Fun tour with great guide
Jeff_M, Jul 2022
This was a fun tour with a very entertaining guide. This was a good walking tour of some really interesting areas of Stockholm. Our guide made it fun for everyone even though the age ranges of the participants was pretty wide. Tip: Make sure you are wearing comfortable walking shoes as there's a lot of walking across various types of cobblestones.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you Jeff_M!
A fun way to learn new things about Stockholm
JohnNici, Jul 2022
Our guide Collum brought the past to life in an engaging way that made you believe the many tales he had to spin about murder, disease and mayhem. Although we were part of a very large group, our guide was able to rivet our attention at every stop. Word of warning: this is not a handicap accessible tour. There are many steps and lots of cobblestone to negotiate. If you cannot handle this, choose another tour.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you! Glad you liked our tour and guide. Thank you also for your warning to other guests.
A great evening out in Stockholm
Rebecca_D, Jun 2022
Our guide, Callum, had great enthusiasm and character whilst leading the group. He interacted well with the group and shared fantastic knowledge of the area !
A fun history lesson
Julie_T, Jun 2022
Callum was a great guide who infused history with humor. It was a great experience and a fun way to learn about Stockholm. Highly recommend.
Wonderful! But know there is only one ghost story..
kelly_b, Jun 2022
Callum was the best tour guide ever! So fun and entertaining. I was a little disappointed that there is really only one ghost story and it is at the end. I appreciated all the stories, but thought there would be more since that is how it is advertised.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Thank you kelly_b! Glad you liked our tour and guide. For your information, this is how we advertise our tour on our website: "Our Ghost Walk contain a great deal of Historical information and of course it’s legends. You will follow your guide for 90 minutes and hear tales of murders, myths, mysteries, executions, assassinations, diseases and legends. You will have the opportunity to see, touch, smell and taste the history."
Eerie fun!
Caralyn_S, May 2022
Fun and informative. Callum is a great guide with lots of interesting stories. Not to be missed. Highly recommended!
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you for the review Caralyn! Thank you also for recommending us!
Fun and spooky.
Steven_C, May 2022
Our tour guide Myson was incredible! She was hilarious and captivating. Excellent story teller. This is a really fun experience that is a nice mix of funny, startling and eerie.
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you Steven_C! Glad you liked our tour and guide.
Nice walk! Not strenuous!...
Katie_L, May 2022
Nice walk! Not strenuous! Great stories and an amazing guide. Not sure why you have to write a minimum number of characters won’t be reviewing on Viator again, but great tour!
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you Katie_L! Glad you liked our tour. Don´t know why you have to write a minimum number of characters :-(
Very interesting tour.
Laurie_K, May 2022
We had Callum as our guide and he was very entertaining. We learned a lot of history throughout various areas within Gamla Stan. I was hoping for more ghost sighting-type stories hence the 4 stars instead of 5.
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you Lauire_K! We will try to find more ghosts next time you join our tour ;-)
The tour was interesting...
Virginija_r, Apr 2022
The tour was interesting towards the end. That was my favorite part, but other then it's just a simple tour with some ghost stories
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you! Glad you liked our simple tour ;-)
