This combo is brilliant value and not only covers the sights of medieval and modern Stockholm, but also the Vasa Museum, where you can get right up close to the Vasa. The 17th-century boat lay on the seabed for over 300 years.
With this Super Saver, you are free to take the tours on the same day or spread over two consecutive days.
Stockholm City Walking Tour with Vasa Museum (2 hours):
Make your way to the starting point of the tour in Gamla Stan. 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.
Bohemian Stockholm Walking Tour (1.5 hours):
Make your way to Södermalm, one of Stockholm's hippest neighborhoods, in the afternoon to meet your group and tour guide.
Set off on foot along Götgatan, the district's main thoroughfare and one of Stockholm's longest streets. Listen as your guide fills you in on the area's gritty past, a fascinating mix of history and controversy. Stop at Södermalmstorg, the area's main square, and visit both the Katarina Church and the Stockholm City Museum.
At Mosebacke Square, enjoy the panoramic views over the entire city from Mosebacke Etablissement. This center of modern city life is considered by many to be the cultural heart of Stockholm. Take note of the area's sleek galleries, bohemian cafes and trendy nightclubs; places you might want to return later on your own.
Move on to the colorful 'south of Folkungagatan' or SoFo district, named in the tradition of New York's SoHo. This is the center of the city's hipster scene, where you'll find vintage shops, trendy boutiques and up-and-coming designers' showrooms.
End your 1.5-hour tour in SoFo, where you can explore on your own.
This tour was amazing!
Stockholm walking tour was great. The tour guide was well read and could answer all our questions. A very interesting city. The vasa museum was the icing on the cake. Just amazing. The Bohemian tour was ok. It was just some of the information overlapped from the first but still good.
Our guide was delightful! A young woman, ex-pat from the US who has taken the city as her own and was able to answer all our questions and give directions clearly! Loved Stockholm!
These were two great tours, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. We learned a lot. Our guides were both friendly and knowledgeable. The Vasa Museum is a must see. Not to be missed. It was a wow experience.
This tour was amazing!
There was no information as to where to meet without calling a foreign phone number..
The Vasa tour was excellent, but we never got to do the Bohemian tour because the time on the ticket was an hour and a half after the tour began. Still waiting for promised partial refund.
First I book the service for two adults. Then I added three children and I told them before I was charged. They made me pay for 5 adults. I expected the guide was in Spanish but it was in English. I was the only who booked for the second visit in the afternoon. We did not have time to have lunch so we did not attend to it.
