Overview

Join us on our Old Town Tour to enjoy the beautiful island of Gamlastan and understand why the Vikings chose this island to create their next capital. Our tour is designed chronologically so you can experience history just like the city did. We will start from the Viking Era, the German influence in the country and the Danish clash which led to the most important Swedish event: the Stockholm bloodbath in 1520 followed by the succession of Gustav Vasa.

When you book on Viator you pay the visit directly, you can also book for free on our website and pay at the end of the tour.

Great pace, great fun. As someone who likes to discover things on my own, this was the perfect combo. Small group, nice variety of stories. Was fun for both my “grew up in Uppsala” friends and us on our first trip to Stockholm. Just do it… you’ll be glad.

Our guide had excellent historical knowledge of Stockholm. She was a lively speaker. Our only complaint was that she had accepted walk-on customers at the start of the tour who were told that they were free to choose their own price for the tour. This meant to us that the tour was one of those ...
