What To Expect

Stroll the cobblestone streets and learn about Birger Jarl, the man who founded the city of Stockholm in 1250. Walk through narrow passageways and streets built for horses, not cars, on your way to check out the Storkyrkan (Great Church). Admire the statue of St George and the Dragon that stands inside the brick Gothic cathedral. 

Make your way to Kungliga Slottet, or the Royal Palace, to see the stately architecture and palace guards that surround the place that Stockholm's Royal family calls home. 

Hop on a ferry for the 10-minute ride to Djurgården, a small island where the Vasa Museum stands. Take a walking tour of the island to see wooden houses from the 1700s and peaceful green parks. Upon arrival at the Vasa Museum, take a half-hour tour that shows you the highlights of the ancient ship, sunk in the waters off Stockholm in 1628 during its maiden voyage.

Finish your tour at the Vasa Museum, where you can continue exploring on your own.


Stortorget, or the main square in the Old Town, housing the museum dedicated to one of Sweden’s greatest inventors and his legacy, the Nobel Museum.

James_M, May 2022
You know you had a great tour when you are sad that it's over which was the case after my walking tour and visit to the Vasa museum with Veerle this weekend. Great stories about the history of Stockholm a perfect orientation to the old city and a great start tour for the Vasa before I had a few hours on my own. Verrle also did a nice job making the touring stories more personal after she new a bit about me. Highly recommend. A+++
