You will also get to see panoramic views of picturesque Lake Mälaren and its surrounding countryside. This is a perfect introduction to Stockholm and its Old Town district.
Cathrin is very nice, passionat and competent. But for my me she focused too much on history and not enough on the build, architecture of building by pointing out the styles. We walked without being encouraged to look up and at things. The rest was very nice.
Starting in the cozy, quaint confines of the classic Östermalmshallen, the old market hall of Stockholm, you’ll enjoy samples of local cheeses and meats, your first tastes on the tour. From here on your 4-hour tour, you’ll walk with your guide through the most modern areas of the city, sampling the best of healthy and classical foods with a twist. At Stockholm’s food market, you’ll sit down with a lunch plate filled with delectable Swedish seafood. No visit to Stockholm is complete without sampling this local specialty! After lunch it’s time for the sweets! In the very heart of the city you'll visit a local chocolate store, where the owners’ romantic story adds an even sweeter flavor to the locally made gourmet chocolate. Hötorgshallen, yet another of the city’s food markets, is also on the route. Stop for a chance to learn about the historical importance of the market and the shops,...
The tour, the guide and the food were all very good. I wish there could have been a sweet and a savoury option for the whole tour as I'm not much of a sweet tooth. Also, there were less stops due to the pandemic, it would probably be even better if we had stopped at more places. Overall, good experience although a bit pricey

This was a perfect tour! Be sure to do this early on in your trip so you can have a general idea of where everything is. It was a perfect balance of sight-seeing and physical activity. The bikes were light-weight and great! Its so much better than a walking tour. You cover a much larger area in a much shorter time in a cooler way.

What an experience! The walk was intensive, yet really rewarding! There is absolutely no sound of the city at all, and we spotted a lot of wild animals during our hike. The organiser gave us plenty of food and beverages to take on our trip, and the sandwich tasted like heaven!
Great trip through the Stockholm archipelago with a guide in English and Swedish. Great explanations, beautiful route, nice boat with seats inside and outside (optionally with blankets and protection from rain). Very great tour !!!
Very nice trip. The stop is very easy to find. The transition from water to land and vice versa was very exciting but also safe. The tour guide was really great, explained a lot in English and Swedish.
What an interactive way to discover the old city (Gamla Stan)! The stories were very interesting and fascinating, and our guide Callum was truly amazing and a very kind and funny person!
Great landscape. Friendly, experienced guide with a lot of background on the area.
