Because the ship docked about one hour from the city, given the size of the city, any tour of Stockholm would be rushed. Our tour was no different. The Alla-Tour guide tried to give us an overview of the city, tour of the Vasa Museum and Old Town, the day was very rushed. I missed the headphone narrative that we had on the St. Petersburg tour.

Good tour, complicated by a sunday morning triathelon. Shuttle drop off point, not very close to Old Town, possible due to activities that morning.

Lots packed into the Cruising Excursions tour. We were told that a few of the museums were closed due to refurbishment. An option to visit the Abba and Swedish life Museums would have been good but, unfortunately, time did not allow this.

Did the 5 hour city and old town tour with alla. Bus tour, vasa museum, and free time in old town. Enjoyed them all. Do not miss the vasa museum with the 1628 warship. WOW! Incredibly preserved! Observed our one and only pickpocket incident inold town. Sitting at an elevated outdoor cafe, two young women were at an outside table, along the rail. Cell phone on the table. Guy walking by, reaches under the rail, grabs the phone, and runs away. Crowd of 20 chases him and retrieves phone. Lesson-put your phone away even when you are in restaurants! Read Less

OMG, Stockholm is a jewel! We did not have any specific expectations before arriving but, wow. Run—don't walk to your first opportunity to visit Stockholm! Right from the start, set your alarm so you wake up in time for the beautiful, serene sail through the hundreds of outer archipelago islands. Then the city, itself, is as charming as could be, clustered around its beautiful bay with forested islands and medieval castles and palaces. The Old Town is delightfully walkable for tours and free time. And we had some our most enjoyable meals (2 different days) sitting in cafes in the Market square. Definitely make time to visit the several museums in the city. In particular, the Vasa Museum, whose re-assembeld, full-size exhibition displays and explains the short 20-minute lifetime of the ill-fated Swedish colonial-era warship, Vasa, In addition, for English speakers, though I regret my own linguistic lack of effort, English is spoken perfectly everywhere. Like in many countries these days, it is a required language in schools. This seemed to be true throughout the Baltic. Read Less

We had been in Stockholm one week before boarding the ship, but the City Tour took us to places we had not yet seen.

In Stockholm, we took shore excursion WS-L1 – A Day in Stockholm. This was an excellent tour with a great guide, Mr. Fisher, who provided excellent knowledge of the city and life in Sweden. We visited City Hall (where they award the Nobel Prize), the Vasa Museum, and Gamla Stan (old town center). In Gamla Stan we had a traditional Swedish meatball sandwich and excellent pastries at Café Syen Sture. The old ship in the Vasa Museum is a must-see. The town center is a busy, interesting place to visit. Read Less

We opted for another local tour with TJ Travel in Stockholm so that we could get to the Vasa Museum and back around to Stockholm's other sights. The Vasa was...a museum! I mean, I guess I'm glad we went there, but if we hadn't gone there, I can't imagine that I would have cared much at all. The story of the Vasa itself is fascinating, but I already knew the story before we got there because I’d read that everyone goes to Vasa and wondered "What the heck is a Vasa?" Walking through the old town was fun, we got another good, cheap lunch at a bakery and one of our favorite souvenirs at the second hand shop near the Nobel Museum. At the Nobel Museum cafe, all the chairs are signed by past Nobel Prize winners, so we had a bit of fun looking under the chairs and trying to find our favorite economists. This was also our only tender port, but our boat was parked literally feet from old town, so while the tendering process itself was a bit of a mess, the boat was in an extremely convenient location at the end of the day.
