We loved the tour. It was an amazing trip to take in vacation and the guide was very ok.
Urban is a very knowledgeable man regarding the history and life in Viking times. The trip was easy paced and the places we went to were very interesting. The dining experience was fine and the drive comfortable. Would recommend this trip to others to gain an insight into Viking times.

Loved this tour full of history. Urban, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and nice. The visit to Uppsala and Sigmut is was amazing.
Urban is a font of excellent information. This is a wonderful tour for history buffs and all those who would like to see something of the lovely Swedish countryside.
Totally agree with all 5-star reviews.
We did have our hotel pick-up and drop-off. I called them in advance to confirm the time 8:20am.
A free coffee/tea break on the way to Uppsala in a working farm is a great time for chatting or just relaxing.
Urban who is our tour guide and driver is very knowledgeable not only with history of Vikings but also Sweden. He is full of passion for his job and humorous. Make sure to collect some questions for him to answer.
My wife and I took this tour on Monday, August 1. It was an absolutely delightful time for us, and we learned so much about the Viking culture from our guide, Urban. The various sites we visited were full of historical artifacts and icons, and, at the end of the tour we felt as if we had experienced a valuable lesson in history of the region. Lunch was in a small town, and we had opportunity to dine with a local couple who were taking their lunch break. We highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn about who the Vikings were and how they lived.
Very interesting plus you get to see the countryside in this full day excursion. Great tour guide as well.
Great tour across some of the beautiful Swedish countryside. The tour guide Urban was exceptionally knowledgeable I don and #39;t know how he remembers everything. Thanks for a great day.
Lovely Viking tour. Great to see so many Viking runestones. The burial mounds were super cool. Unexpected delight was a stop in countryside at a small farm oozing with charm for a Swedish Fika.
Informative tour and great way to see the Swedish countryside. If you're looking to learn about the real Vikings, This is the way to go
Enjoyed the tour. Urban was very knowledgeable and kept the trip moving along well. The visit to the farm was a favorite stop. We enjoyed seeing the rune stones and fika. Glad we were able to see more of Sweden than just Stockholm. Beautiful countryside.
Full marks to Urban our tour guide. Prompt pick up from our hotel, lovely clean and comfortable vehicle.
We really appreciated Urban's historical and local knowledge and his humour also.
Lovely morning tea at the farm. All round highly recommended tour.

Great tour guide Urban. He tells you all about history and about Sweden in general. We enjoyed the drive through the countryside while hearing his history and stories. We also liked the nice coffee break at the farm.
Excellent guide, Urban is a treasure trove of information and brings the stories and history alive!
More time in Sigtuna would have been nice, as it is a bit rushed to have lunch and walk around the town.
this was a fantastic tour...our guide was very informative and very personable..i highly recommend this tour

My husband and I were extremely happy with this tour and would highly recommend it. The guide/driver was wonderful, extremely efficient, knowledgeable and courteous. We saw far more than we expected.
This is a trip to be highly recommended. We were picked up from our Stockholm hotel at the agreed time in a very comfortable minibus. We were given a tour of many Viking era sites and our guide was both entertaining and very knowledgeable on virtually any subject. We were taken to a farmhouse where we saw the Granby rune stone and were given coffee and warm apple pie. The tour finished with a visit to both old and modern Uppsala. There were many highlights but the burial mounds were not to be missed. We enjoyed our day. The weather could not have been better.
Really enjoyed the tour, the guide was knowledgeable and funny. Overall it was a fantastic experience.
Urban was very knowledgeable and made the trip thoroughly enjoyable. He takes you to a few of the Viking Runic stones, you get to see a lot of the Swedish country scene-very beautiful. You also get a nice a Banana cake and sweet apple juice like none you've had in your life when you stop at a farm he seems to know well. A stop at a small town with great little shops and lots of green and water. My only regret is that we didn't tip him more! Must do.
Amazing experience and knowledgeable and pleasant tour guide-- highly recommend to anyone visiting Sweden.
