Our guide, Urban, was above and beyond all our expectations. His knowledge and willingness to share it with all passengers was superb. We enjoyed every minute of the trip: from the moment Urban picked us up from the hotel to the moment of saying goodbye at the location, that was not included into the trip, but we asked Urban if he could drop us somewhere near a public transportation station, so we may go over there. And Urban just drove us to the place. We can't appreciate more his job. He showed us not only history of Sweden and Vikings but also showed heartwarming respect to the customers.I would definitely recommend the Viking History Day Trip from Stockholm including Upsala to everyone who is interested in Scandinavian history. And especially if the guide will be Urban.
Done in a Van where the driver was also the Guide. Wow dangerous if I may say to drive and and talk about history at same time. The Guide was average, hated his monotonous tone of speaking - made ihistory so boring Way over priced $164 for one person!
Really enjoyed the tour for the opportunity to see the wonderful countryside of Sweden. Wish it had been about an hour shorter. The guide was very knowledgeable about the Vikings but I wish he had explained more about why they did what they did.
Extraordinaire découverte de l'histoire des Vikings en exploirant leur territoire et les vestiges ! Une magnifique journée tres instructive avec un guide fantastique ( qui se prénomme Urban), tres professionnel , tres interressant donnant des explications durant la journée entière et tres sympathique ! Il fait vivre pleinement cette mémorable journée !Nous faisons de nombreux arrêts tres interressants à la fois pour les adultes et pour les enfants/ados. Excursion complète avec une extraordinire pause café/gâteau incluse dans une magnifique ferme implantée sur les anciens territoires Vikings dont les vestiges se trouvent devant nos yeux! Nous visitons la magnifique petite ville de Sigtuna avec temps libre pour dejeuner où l’on veut , puis visite de la ville de Uppsala et son extraordinaire cathedrale chargée d’histoire de la présence des Vikings. Je dois également préciser que notre chauffeur/guide vient nous chercher et nous ramène à l’hotel et ce, d’une ponctualité exemplaire ! De plus, le minibus est tout neuf, extrêmement confortable et nous sommes 16 personnes au maximum, ce qui rend l’excursion quasi privative !C’est une fabuleuse journée, une extraordinaire expérience et je la recommande à 300% pour tout le monde ! Et un grand merci à notre guide Urban , il donne « vie « à cette excursion !
The tour itself was nice. The van we traveled in was not. We had 19 people in a van made for 18 one was a child, and several of us had NO leg room due to the wheel wells sticking up and taking our foot space. Not a place you want to be for an 8 hour tour. Would not have taken the tour if we had known that up front! Something needs to be said in the description about this.
The tour was awesome! Lucky for me and my wife we were the only ones in the tour that day and it turned out to be a private tour! Our tour guide, Urban, was absolutely fantastic and very very knowledgeable .. he will definitely show you a lot of great places and tell you some stories. Highly recommended!
This was a great educational tour. We ended out Vikings Homelands on Viking Cruise ships with this land tour while we stayed in Sweden. It was nice to get away form the city and see some of the country side. The town we had lunch in was very quiet and peaceful. Our driver and tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely take this tour again.
