Boat trips are a good idea to get a feel for the city if you dont do a prebooked excursion.

The Vasa ship is a must see here, an unbelievably in tact 16th century ship in a well laid out museum.

Again did our own travel here. Wanted to visit the Vasa Museum, which turned out to be impressive to say the least. Worth the time to visit this wonderful exhibit. An absolutely beautiful entrance to this city sailing through islands, would have been something spectacular in the winter. Must see if you are travelling to Stockholm. Read Less

You have to take a city bus, cab or tour to get to town. Buses are reasonable but have to charge tickets - no cash accepted. Again, plan what you want to see, know when to get off the bus and enjoy!

$20 cab to from the pier to city. Resisted Vassa Museum but was really glad I visited. City Hall is a must do with the Nobel Peace Prize connection. The old town was very lively and place to get lost for a couple of hours. Very hard to find Swedish food...although plenty of Italian restaurants. Read Less

Again used a hop on hop off bus for the two days and thoroughly enjoyed the Vasa museum and we used the hop on hop off boat to get to the old town and the palace and saw the changing of the guard. The next day we did more touring on the buses and went through the town hall which was very impressive. The city is beautiful with all the lakes and gardens. We loved it! Read Less

Hop on, hop off again - got a discount as we stuck with the Greyline (Stromma) firm. Definitely worth doing the boat and bus, the boat was a great way back to the ship.

We bought tickets for the Hop On Hop Off bus. It was the best way to see the city. I wish we had more time there, thought.

We explored the city on our own with the Hop on Hop off tour....this is a great option and not as expensive as the shore excursion offered by NCL.

wandered around the old town with its plethora of tourist shops and little cafes. Everyone was very friendly and although expensive, not quite as bad as I expected.

We spent two days here enjoying the sunny weather. There is lots to do. We toured the palace, the city centre and took a boat tour to the summer palace.

Took the shuttle - again a beautiful city. Took a boat trip to see the sights. Used Redsightseeing as they have a hop-on/hop-off option so you can explore the different areas. Other operators offer the same/similar options.
