Our tour guide George was full of information and interesting facts. It was a great tour to do on my first day in Stockholm as a solo traveler to situate myself and learn a bit about the city's interesting history. Definitely recommend doing this.

Description

Dare to time travel to an age when lords and ladies rode their horses through the narrow, cobbled streets, shopkeepers shouted out the daily deals from their doorways and animals hopped from rooftop to rooftop (well, only in the beginning perhaps!). Entering into the Old Town is like stepping back in time and having the city’s living history unfold around you.

In our very personal opinion, the Old Town of Stockholm is the ideal place to start your visit to this beautiful capital, especially if you want to get to know the Swedes (we’re not only Vikings you know!) and a bit about the city's long, fascinating history. If you’re looking for a short and sweet introduction to the historical centre of Stockholm, this tour is the perfect walking tour for you.

We begin at the exceptionally photogenic main square, Stortorget, in the heart of the Old Town (trust us, get your cameras ready!). At the Royal Palace, we will give you insight into how a gym owner and a reality tv-star became real-life royalty. While sampling a piece of a traditional candy cane, you will experience the result of the Swedes’ creative innovation skills.

Now your Stockholm Old Town Walk is complete - what a treat!

Muy interesante y ameno
Mi guía no hablaba español pero sí un inglés muy accesible. Muy simpática, amable , abierta a que se le pregunte lo que sea y eso que me interesaba saber sobre la la inmigración actual , por ejemplo
Se ven variadas cosas y con mucha información pero de manera amena y con el tiempo suficiente

Natalie was waiting for us in advance at the designated starting point. One and a half hour full of stories throughout the Old Town (Gamla Stan) y Riddarholm. Each corner had a secret, a small o great story behind to be told. Natalie's enthusiam, fantastic attitude and clear English got our attention during the whole tour. Natalie took care of any of us and when I thought it could not get better, suddenly, she sang us a (Christmas) song. I would rate this visit as a "must see tour" performed by an excellent person/proffesional. Thanks a lot to Stockholm Our Way and thanks a lot to Natalie as well !!!

Great tour guide.
Your company were excellent from the off! Even when we accidentally cancelled the trip, you made it happen and Marc was an excellent guide. To be honest my wife and I could have just chatted with Marc all day as he is a very knowledgable well travelled guide and is a credit to your company. I especially found the Devil's book story hillarious.

I will definitely recommend to all, and would promote Marc (if not already) as your lead English tour guide. Many thanks for an enjoyable tour and would definitely use your company again.

Great job
Our guide did a great job. He was super friendly, very knowledgeable and truly excited about the city - something so important to inspire tourists about it. Would highly recommend the tour and the guide.

My favorite day of my entire Sweden/Denmark vacation was the day we took a bike tour with this company. Lisa was a fabulous guide, despite having a cold, and provided us with a great deal of information and ideas for things to do after our tour concluded. The bike tour is a great way to start your vacation in Stockholm as it provides you with a start to knowing where everything is and helps you get your bearings. It also gives you a good idea of where you want to return. In addition, the bike rental is good for two additional days after the day you take the tour! I would highly recommend his tour to anyone who enjoys spending time outdoors and is in moderately good shape. Lisa was very attentive to the different needs of everyone in our group and adjusted her speed accordingly. Perfect day!

We had a great tour, Lisa, our Tour guide showed us the old Town ( Gamle Stan ) and the Vasa
In the meanwhile telling funny stories about the past (e.g. medieval punishments) and the present ( the Royals and their relatives )All related to the spots we were visitng. The tour included Vasa VIP entrance so we could beat the queue in front of the desk. Not the most important thing but losing 30minutes in a queue in the sun is not what you like to meet! The tour last 3 hours and includes the ferry to Djurgardens. Good value for money!

We went in october, a quiet month so when we met our friendly guide in the old town my partner and I were the only ones! which was lovely. it was a very personal tour and very funny and full of facts of the old town and stockholm.
Our ticket included the short ferry trip to the Viking museum and then the VIP ticket into the museum.. straight inside beating the long queues! the guide is worth every penny!
