Description

Once upon a time, there was a charming neighbourhood with cosy, old buildings lining the streets. City-folk scurried down the cobblestoned streets on their way to and from work while mouthwatering scents floated out the doors of bakeries. And then came Godzilla… just kidding! Today nothing of this district reminiscent of the Old Town exists. Instead, we have modern city-centre with high-rises (okay, maybe not high based on your standards, but for us they are!) and a patchwork of bustling city streets.

Join us on our Stockholm City Walk, where we will discover why this district was modernised, who calls this home today (or will one day) and where many people shop at the exclusive stores. We will meander our way through the city-centre checking out highlights such as the Stockholm Concert Hall, home of the Nobel Prize Ceremony; Norrmalmstorg, where a term in psychology was coined; and the Royal Dramatic Theatre, where famous Swedish actors like Skarsgård (which one?! there's a whole troop of them!) galavant across one of the theatre’s many stages.

We end this tour - once we’ve covered this plus the topics of famous Swedes - in Kungsträdgården, a stone’s throw from the Old Town.

George was awesome!
We had a fantastic tour of Gamla Stan and many interesting facts were shared. Our tour guide was very personable, energetic, and knew the answers to everyone's questions. He also did a great job shooing away those not on our tour but who were trying to get in on some free tidbits! We loved the ferry over to the Vasa and learning more about the ship and its misfortunes. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Stockholm!
Delightful
