Excellent walking tour of Old Town Stockholm. Our small group (8 people) were lucky with our terrific guide who led us through the winding streets of Old Town and gave us just the right amount of information about what we were seeing.

I am glad I did this as I wouldn't have had the historical facts and I would have therefore missed places while walking in the Old Town.

Our guide did not show up for the tour. Our tour was to start at 1:30pm. We arrived at 1pm at the designated location and waited till 2:15pm. A guide did not show up. Very disappointed.

The Old Town tour covered almost nothing. Most of the group was Swedish - only 4 English speaking, so at each stop, the guide would go on for at least 10 minutes to the Swedish group, then when it was time for our explanation of what we were seeing, she spoke for about a minute. We didn't really learn anything that we didn't already know from just strolling around the area.
