Stockholm Stockholm Old Town Tour Excursion Reviews

Stockholm's original city center is a glorious labyrinth of charming cobbled streets, alleyways, faded mustard and rust coloured town houses and meeting squares reflecting north German architecture.
One of our best excursions.
Sail Date: July 2019
One of our best excursions. Guide was excellent. Saw the highlights of the city and had a lovely Fica. It was have been wonderful to have more time here even an overnight. However, we have promised to come back.

Stockholm was unbelievably pretty.
Sail Date: June 2019
Stockholm was unbelievably pretty. The HOHO was very very cramped with people trying to move around. I'd leave plenty of time to make it back to the cruise ship as you may have to wait for several buses to go by before you make it

Also include canal cruise. Sunday so many places were either overly crowded or closed for services. Should have taken a taxi on our own. Very pricy for what we got.

We really enjoyed the Stockholm Modern & Medieval tour, but it would be better and easier to just do them yourself. It was a quick bus tour through the city, then to Old Town/Gamla Stan, which is delightful, then you can just walk to the Medieval Museum and see it in an hour. Then we went across to the Vasa Museum which is jaw-droopingly fantastic. Crystal didn't seem to offer a tour to this, but it was certainly the highlight of Stockholm and one of the best museums we've ever seen, Really cool. The cruise's shuttle bus drops you close to everything, so that is a better option in this city than the planned excursions. Read Less

Excellent independent small company owned and operated by a lovely woman, Renata. There were originally 16 of us and a party of 5 wanted to join at the last moment so she sent another bus just for them at the same price as ours. Extremely accommodating for a small group with varied interests. At one point some went to the Palace while a few others went on a synagogue tour. Took us from the Vasa museum to Old Town via a public ferry ride. tour guide was extremely knowledgeable but also very funny, sang to us as well. Have to say there was nothing lacking on this tour. Very personalized and Renata went out of her way to ensure that all had an excellent experience in Stockholm. Could not have asked for better. Read Less
