Really a disappointing tour, guide seemed out of depth trying to deal with some guests who had difficulty walking down the narrow streets. Made it really difficult for others and ended up not doing much at all

Throughly enjoyed the city tour. It was informative and our guide was excellent pointing out all the highlights of this wonderful city. Stockholm is a wonderful, friendly, and visitor friendly city that should be visited more than once.

In Sweden we first visited the Royal Palace, which was an interesting fact-filled tour and well worth our time. Then we had a short time for touring the old city square on our own and lunch on our own. In the old town square we visited the Nobel Museum, which I would give low marks as it was not very well organized an it was very expensive. We had a light lunch there, which was very good. The museum was not a good value for what we spent on it. Also we did not have the time require to really see all of the exhibits. We watched part of the Changing of the Guard at the Palace, and then took, a quick tour of the cathedral next to the Palace, which was very beautiful and ornate and well worth the price of the suggested admission. They did not take dollars but did take credit cards. After lunch we got back on the bus and went to the City Hall where we bought three T-shirts and a 4 bottles for about $100! Be wary of the gift shop pricing! Next we went to the Vasa Ship Museum, which was great. We had a little less than and hour there, which was far too little time to see it all. We could have easily spent half of the day (or more) there. I highly recommend it. Read Less

Good overview of the cityThe buses in Stockholm were in need of care. The seats would not stay up so you could not rest against the back. Many were also threadbare. Need to use a different line for the cost of these excursions.

Royal Palace was gloomy and uninteresting. Got screamed at by ceremonial soldier for sheltering from the rain under an archway meant for official cars. Welcome to Sweden. Dropped out of the walking tour through the old town due to the rain, and took shelter in a cosy café, where not only did they accept Euros, but gave change in Euros, and provided free coffee top-ups. It saved the day. Traffic congestion very severe here also. The 3 stars are all for the café and it's warm welcome. Read Less

We got up early to watch the sail into Stockholm, through the archipelago. It was very pretty and sunny. The ship docked at 8:00 am. We took the Stockholm sights & Vasa museum tour. It was 3.5 hours. We left the ship at 8:45. We had a brief drive and went to the Vasa museum. We had about 1.5 hours here. We then had a city drive with 2 brief photo stops. Then we had a 10 minute walk around the Gamal Stan (Old town area) and they pointed out where the ship shuttle stop was, next to the Opera House. We went back to the ship for lunch. After lunch, we took the ship shuttle and walked around the old town area some more. We were going to walk to the Ice Bar at the Grand Hotel, but again the weather was looking pretty nasty. My mom didn’t want to get caught out in the rain, so we just walked around Stockholm some. We also passed on a canal cruise. It started to rain as soon as we were on the shuttle back to the ship.

I am sure this bus tour would be fine for some people, but I like to walk around, and Stockholm is another city that is an easy walk from the ship, and several sites that are walkable. I was interested in the Vasa Museum, but by the time our bus tour was over there wasn't really time to do that. So nothing against the tour, it's just not for me. I would recommend walking into town. The old town and the shopping streets are close by. Hopefully I will get to go back some day. Then I would either go to the Vasa Museum or check out the archipeligo tour. Read Less

Excellent tour of the city with stops to see highlights. Time on our own to have lunch and shop for Dhala horse - a folk art wooden horse that is very Swedish! Seeing the Vasa, 17th century ship that sunk after 20 minutes on its maiden voyage, was amazing. The Old Town was fun to explore. We wanted the overall city tour as we plan to get back to the city and spend more time there on a future vacation. Excellent tour guide. Read Less

As this was a tender port there was a bit of confusion getting off the boat on which tender to get on escorted or not escorted. But all the sites we visited were pretty and worthwhile. Was allowed to return to ship on your own.
