Truly wonderful. I had a splendid time taking this half-day tour while in Stockholm. It was limited to a tiny group of people and our guide, who was friendly, pleasant, and incredible knowledgeable, led us to many of the most fascinating and beautiful Viking sights. I probably would not have had a chance to visit these ruins and sights in person otherwise. Highly recommended.

This was a great tour to get around the different sites to learn about Viking history. Despite the weather being rainy and cold, it was a great trip and would highly recommend!

Could be better if the guide knew more history and explain everything that happened around. We felt like hiring a chofer. Too bad because there are a lot of things to tell about the area. Sigtuna is a beautiful little town to visit longer, we know it was cold but he only took us to the beautiful church, we only saw the old rock church but he did not give us more info, the smallest city hall in Sweden and the tourist info center. The guide did not cover our expectations eventhough the area is nice, thanks God we had a written guide to know more about all around.

This was a wonderful experience! We loved our guide, we think his name was Unger and his knowledge of the Viking history with regards to the churches, people and the rune stones. He could actually read some of the letters on them! It was great to be able to choose from several places for lunch in Sigtuna and what great views and terrific food! Excellent tour. He picked us up at our hotel and then dropped us off at a museum we talked about visiting later that day. That does not happen in many other tours.

Excellent. Filled in gaps in our tour of Denmark, the Baltic States, Russia, Finland, Sweden and Norway up to North Cape on a Hurtigruten cruise.

Our driver collected us from our hotel and gave us an in depth account of Stockholm and #39;s history and Viking connections. Urban, our guide, was incredibly knowledgable and personable. Highly recommend although be warned there is a lot of walking and in cold weather be sure to bring very warm clothes.

This was a worthwhile way of spending an afternoon if you have already seen Stockholm. Urban, our guide, really made the experience great. We got much more than expected.

This tour was outstanding! Our guide, Urban, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We really enjoyed the fika in Granby and hiking through a field to discover rune stones. Sigtuna was a beautiful as well. If you get a chance to take this your while in Stockholm, do it.

A few weeks before this tour I received an e-mail that the tour was upgraded to a full day tour including Uppsala. The tour was great, there were only 4 of us so it felt like a private tour. Urban, the tourguide, has a lot of knowledge and shares his knowledge with enthusiasm and humour. It would highle recommend this tour!

Our tour guide Urban really made this experience worthwhile! I could imagine with other guides who aren't as engaging that it could be a far less exciting day. Urban had a way of linking all the Viking history with other cultures, religions, histories to really make the information easily understandable. He was also pretty funny which is always a plus! Highly recommend

A fascinating experience. Glenn was an informative and interesting guide, leading us through Viking and Medieval sites and churches. Sigtuna was an ideal stop for lunch as it was both historical and a pleasure to walk around. Highly recommended, and based on this tour I would not hesitate to upgrade to the full day tour if available it wasn't on the day I travelled.

Very interesting tour. There were just 5 of us and it was really nice having a small group. The tour was outside of Stockholm so it was so nice to see the Swedish suburbs, which were beautiful. Our guide was very knowledgeable. He was so into the tour that he even stopped by the side of the woods, which was not part of the tour, to show us what ligonberries looked like. They were very close to the ground and there were also wild blueberries growing there. We got a taste of both. I just wish he gave us some time to have photos taken by the ruric stones, but other than that, he was an excellent guide.

The tour was excellent and tour guide great. The only issue was that when we bought the tour it was to be 8 hours and go to Upsalla. The tour guide thought it ended in Sigtuna. The other members of the group also believed it went to Upsalla, so the tour guide took us and was very thorough and gracious. But not sure why there was this confusion. All in all it was a very excellent tour and I highly recommend it.

Great trip wit lots of information. However, you are seeing rocks.... so if you are looking for artifacts, this is not the trip for you go to Oslo viking ship exhibit. This trip does give you history, an idea about the vikings, great coffee stop and lunch in a small village

Small group. Excellent guide. A lot of very interesting information. They even serve us coffee and homemade pastries, it was a rainy day so it was very kind of them to do that. Great tour!
