Stockholm Shore Excursion: Stockholm in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Stockholm Shore Excursion: Stockholm in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Make your way to the Stockholm's Royal Opera House to start your Stockholm city tour. Climb aboard a comfortable, climate-controlled coach for a 90-minute sightseeing tour by land that includes all of the city's best-known attractions. While listening to informative commentary about the history and culture of the city from your audio guide, see Stadshuset (City Hall), Kungliga Slottet (the Royal Palace), the Vasa Museum, Fjällgatan and the lush island of Djurgården.

After finishing the coach tour, embark on a tour of the city by water aboard a canal boat. Cruise around Djurgården and some of Stockholm's other central islands. Listen to your personal audio guide and learn about the various green spaces, museums and historical landmarks as you pass by. The boat is equipped with a snack bar, WiFi and children's activities.

On the way back towards the city, be sure to have your camera at the ready for the fantastic panoramic view that can only be seen from the water. Your tour ends at Strömkajen, just outside the Grand Hôtel Stockholm.

Please note: The departure and end location is within 20 minutes walk of Skeppsbron cruise port, and 25 minutes by local bus (own expense) from Frihamnsgatan cruise port or Stadsgården cruise port.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2013

The ship docked far away and we had to spend money and time to locate the starting point of this one day sigthseeing tour in Stockholm , if we were not so fast and the people of stockholm not friendly we would have missed the tour. We were basically running and travelling in the local bus.I was very tired before the tour. We then enjoyed the bus and boat tour which was great and then had to find our way backwithout a break to the ship so we get back in time. We were lucky to be back in time. WOW!! it was very hectic


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2013

Stockholm – May 27, 2013
Shore Excursion Voucher stated port pick up and drop off. Once again we were lucky to find a helpful local at the port, the hop on hop off bus driver who was the pick up. He took us to where the tour started and on exchanging our voucher for tickets we were told that we would not be dropped off back at the port even though my Viator voucher clearly stated that a drop off was included. At my insistence she called her supervisor and then told us that the best she could do was to give us a ferry voucher which would take us back to the ship. Once again the tour was fine but spoiled by the lack of information given by Viator. Not one of our three tours ran smoothly. Never again Viator, you made it too stressful!


1 star rating: I do not recommend this September 2015

This tour was not advertised correctly and we did not go. There was no way for us to get to the meeting point from the ship. The meeting point was in the center of town and we would have had to get a cab to get there. Very unhappy about this.
