Really cool tour. The guides, Johan and Felix were really friendly and had a good sense of humour. The tour wasn't overly comprehensive, but covered a lot of Stockholm from the water and, being on a few tours before, all of the information was new, so that was great! Kayaks were amazing and in good condition, and it was such a unique way to see the city. Well worth it.

I ended up being the only one on the tour, but it was a lot of fun. The guide was very knowledgeable and had lots of recommendations for things to do. Just a really cool opportunity, how many people can say they went kayaking in Sweden? Great tour, would definitely recommend!

One of the highlights of our visit to Stockholm. Wonderful way to see the city and learn about its history. The guide was phenomenal. Was not at all difficult.

I took this tour towards the end of my trip and am glad I did. Seeing Stockholm from the water was a great way to understand how the islands are connected and what I missed by walking and biking. So I used the last few days to get to things I learned about on this trip. Our tour guide was very helpful, informative and pleasant. We saw a variety of areas of Stockholm and learned much more about Stockholm's historic from the perspective of its water roots. I highly recommend this tour.

Excellent. Our guide, Morgan, was extremely good not only in showing us how to paddle since we were all beginners but also took us around and provided a lot of useful information. I definitely recommend the tour.

Had a great time on this tour. I was the only one who showed up and they still took me out, so I got a personal paddle around the city. Learned a lot of interesting facts and had a lot of laughs. I would recommend this to anyone I knew going to Stockholm.
