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.
