Discover 2 of Stockholm's sightseeing highlights on this 2.5-hour walking tour. Walk the cobbled streets of Gamla Stan (Old Town), then stop by the Kungliga Slottet (the Royal Palace) and Storkyrkan (Coronation Church) with a knowledgeable local guide. Enjoy a ferry ride to Djurgården to tour the Vasa Museum, home to an ancient warship that sank in 1628 and has been painstakingly restored.
Make your way to Stortorget, Stockholm's oldest town square, in Gamla Stan (Old Town) to meet your local guide.
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 (Coronation 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 half-hour tour that shows you the highlights of the ancient ship, sunk in the waters off Stockholm in 1628 during its maiden voyage. Explore the ship itself, watch a short film in the museum and then enjoy a coffee in the restaurant.
Finish your tour at the Vasa Museum, where you can continue exploring on your own.
Excellent guide but very short time at Vasa Museum. Vasa is very big museum where you can be all day, it's amazing.
We did the Stockholm city walking tour Vasa Museum on Nov 11 at 10am.
Our tour guides name was Bjorn (I'm sorry if I spelt that wrong). Our guide was absoloutely FANTASTIC! Very knowledgeable. He had a great attitude and was very friendly. We had a really fun time!
Would highly recommend this tour!
Our guide, Jorn, was very knowledgeable and good fun. A great way to spend a morning, highly recommend.
We had a great time! The tour ends at the fantastic Vasa museum and we lingered there in the afternoon. The Vasa has a lovely restaurant as well
Great overall walking tour which showed the major landmarks and gave a history of the city. Skipping the line to get into the Vasa Museum was a plus.
George was a wonderful tour guide and gave a great three hour tour. Stockholm is beautiful and we loved the Gamla Stan area the most.

I had no idea of the bloodied history of Stockholm but our guide was thorough and descriptive in explaining it to us. We started in the Gamla Stan and made our way through the narrow cobbled streets listening and learning. Our guide whose name escapes me but is a law student so that may narrow it down was knowledgeable and tailored the tour and censored it for the children present. The Vasa part of the tour was amazing and when we first walked into the museum we were literally breathless at the sight and size of this beautiful ship. It is a fascinating history and has so much to see and take in. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get an overview of Stockholm.
We had a very nice walking tour of the Gamla Stan and ended with a ferry ride to the Vasa Museum. Our young female guide was easy to understand and well informed. Was easy to find the meeting place by the Nobel Museum. The tour gave us a good orientation of Gamla Stan.
This would have been a great tour had we not walked it in a downpour. The Vasa Museum is not to be missed. It was very impressive. The ship is in near perfect condition. They had scientifically analyzed information about the people and their probable lifestyles that were found in the sunken ship.
Amazing tour and included queue-free access to the Vasa Museum, which was a real highlight. Pontus was such a gem and really nice bloke, who knew his stuff. Very thorough tour, and good exercise. Well worth it. - Oscar x
